November 9: Happy half-Birthday!
Today, my little guy is one and a half. That’s probably a milestone only a mother notices, but six months in baby time is a lot. Six months ago, he wasn’t walking. He wasn’t adding his voice to the dinnertime din. He wasn’t into Every. Single. Thing. Now, he’s a chubby whirling dervish who races back and forth between the potato bin, the shoe rack, the closet, the utensil drawer, and the trash can, just to see how much he can get into and how fast he can do it. Also, he has five and a half teeth, about that many blond curls, and a vocabulary of three words: Mama, Dada, and bath (his favorite time of the day). And I’m wondering … will his next word be in English or Romanian??

  1. Happy half birthday, little one!

  2. Such a sweet (and busy!) age for a child. My youngest was like the Energizer Bunny at that age. He’s now 8 and hasn’t slowed down a whole lot!

  3. Enjoy these moments! It’ll be gone before you know it….

    how fun!

  4. What a wonderful opportunity for immersion! Do you think you will be there long enough for him to really learn Romanian?

  5. Happy Half Birthday to your son!

    When we lived in Italy we spoke English to our son and the maid spoke Italian. The end result was that he understood both English and Italian, but spoke neither. He was almost two when we came back to the states and he only spoke a few words. With everyone speaking the same language and TV on most of the day in no time he was speaking English.

  6. That is a huge milestone. Happy half birthday!

  7. how cute, Happy Half Birthday.


  8. Every Mom marks those special days!! And we can all guarantee, your little one will only pick up speed in the months ahead!! Put on your racing shoes…:o)

  9. Oh yeah, half birthdays are cool too…except way later in life, right?!

  10. I hope he has a truly wonderful day!

  11. I love that picture of his shoulder and ear. Sweet and vulnerable.


  12. Precious photo and precious moments. So sweet. You’re right too; changes happen so fast in these early days. Glad you already know to treasure it. 🙂

  13. Love the photo. And happy half-birthday, little man.

    I missed the posting deadline for Alphabe-Thursday this week…feel free to stop by and check out some of my favorite little guys, tho… 🙂

  14. I’m off to spend five days with my nephew who is also 1 and a half. It is such a sweet age. Hopefully he will only be speaking in English so that I will understand what he needs : )

  15. Oh, what a sweet, sweet age.

    Love that picture. I’ve always been enchanted with babies necks and profiles!

    Is there anything sweeter than hearing ‘Mama’ from your little one?

    Thanks for a beautiful post for a beautiful 1/2 Birthday boy!


  16. Happy half birthday to your little one! 6 months IS a lot of time to have passed and it’s great that you notice and celebrate it 🙂
