Joshua's 6 month birthday was this past Saturday. I was happy that I had a LOT going on that day and was able to get through it without too much thinking.
It has been frustrating that I don't have new pictures of Joshua to post on these birthdays. I should be able to make a bulleted list of all the new things he is doing and show pictures of how much he has grown. But, that is just something I can't do.
However, my sister surprised me on Memorial Day with a bunch of pictures I have not yet seen! She got a new phone after Joshua passed away and she still had the old sims card from her old phone. She finally was able to get them off and gave them to me as a surprise!!
They were all taken while we were in Boise for Christmas. It felt good to have some new pictures of my little hero.
I love this picture because this is how he would sleep/sit in his bouncer before his surgery. He started putting his head up like that even in the hospital right after he was born! I didn't really have very many good pictures of this, so this one is truly priceless. I also love his little hands...almost like he is saying a prayer.
This one I love because it actually shows more Christmas decorations, showing it was Christmas time! Also, he did most of his sleeping on the floor like this before his surgery.
