It’s hard to believe, as I write this, that Alon is 6 months old. Flipping back through the blog posts, I can barely remember the first few days and weeks – so much has changed, and changes, every day.
And things have gotten so much better. Maybe it’s not very PC of me to say this, but the first few months of Alon’s life were HARD. It took about 10-12 weeks before breastfeeding was pain-free (for me). That coupled with the sleep deprivation, hormonal ups and downs, and the feeling that I was basically interacting with a blob (albeit a very cute one), made the beginning especially tough.
But then the breastfeeding got easier, and quicker. And then Alon smiled. And smiled again. And started to laugh and coo and really interact with us. Then it became really fun to be his mom, and I quickly forgot about the preceding weeks.
And here we are 6 months later, with a (still) very cute, very curious, very active boy who is already making his personality known – and who charms everyone he meets 🙂
Happy half birthday!
