6 months. 6 of the very best months.

see MORE
samson is 6 months old today. 6 months! that went a whole lot quicker the second time.  this little man is sitting up and starting solids and always finding a way to grab his sister’s hair when it’s in reach and pull it ever so hard (it starts young, huh?)
i love this little mister. all babies are miracles, but samson is my miracle. and i can’t imagine life without him.  the past 6 months have been such a joy. thank you for joining our little family, samson boy. you make us feel complete.
and just so you know, mister samson, you have also made this little girl below the happiest. watching you two interact throughout the day is my favorite. 
  1. What a beautiful post – the pic of E and S at the bottom is beyond gorgeous

  2. Cutest kids ever! Happy 6 months little guy!

  3. So sweet! Happiest 6 months, Samson!

    happy 6 months! your children are precious and they are blessed to have such a wonderful mother as you :)


  7. Hey there! I saw your video chat yesterday and I couldn't wait to leave you a hello.
    You are amazing. I visit your website sinde 2009 and see you with your husband, then kinsley, then little E and now samson boy is awesome. It kind of makes me a part of all this.
    I cannot express how much I admire you. You have such an energy that goes beyond the pictures and the writing.
    Thank you, for taking the time to share your family, your kindness with us.
    I really look up to you, because, someday, I hope I can be as good as you show us to. And the great part is, is that you, i think, don't realize it.
    you are very, very, very beautiful, naomi.
    xoxo from Brazil (:

    That picture of them both at the bottom is so adorable.
    You are so incredibly blessed to have such gorgeous children. As someone who has been trying to have a baby for the past two years this blog really keeps me going and reminds me that the wait will definitely be worth it in the end if I can have a little family that's as half as happy as yours.
    Thank you

  33. Bianca

    So wonderful! My two are 6 and 14 months. Whilst its lovely to have one on one with W whilst my eldest is at school. They don't have much in common. I think a smaller age gap is nice. x

  34. I love your stripped sweater! Where is it from?!
    Cutest kiddos ever!

  35. I love your stripped sweater! Where is it from?!

    Uwielbiam wasze zdjęcia ^^

  38. Haha, it DOES start young! I'm almost exactly 1 1/2 years older than my brother and man did we fight. Most of the time we were best friends but we were famous for our battles.

    Now I'm just as close to him as to our other siblings, who are over 10 years older than us. It's nice to have someone who's going through similar experiences with you.

  39. they are and are going to be the best of friends. so stinking cute. happy half birthday samson!
