Dear Kallahan,
Happy 6 months! Wow, can you be half a year old already?!  It seems just like yesterday we were bringing you home from the hospital.  However, in many ways it seems like you have been in our family forever and I can’t even imagine going back to just us three.  I always knew I wanted to have two kids and now our little world seems so complete.  You are an absolute joy!     
At your 6 month well visit, everyone loved you Kal! You are so happy, always smiling and cueing at anyone that talks to you.  This month you have actually started eating food!  You have tried a few new items in addition to your rice cereal, like green beans, bananas and squash.  You have done well with all of them.  You are still not eating much but you are getting better every day. 
You recognize your name now.  You have received some nicknames recently, “Kal-hoon”,  “Hoon” & “Spike.”  Your hair gets crazier every day.  One day this month I put some gel in it to try to make it stay down.  It did good for a while and then it was just a big mess when you woke up from a nap.  I love it tho – everyone says this is just like my hair was when I was a baby.   
Developmentally, you are sitting with support.  You can get across a room by rolling and scooting.  You prop yourself up on your side, all sprawled out and just hold your head up like you are so big.  I don’t think it will  be long before you’re crawling. You’re almost there, mister!
You love to be outside.  You like to swing and ride in your wagon with Keeler.  I know you are going to love the spring and summer.


You have come into the world so tiny, 
Yet with such great promise for the future.
Before you were even born,
God planned wonderful things for you.
