Happy half-birthday to Elliott!

Yesterday was Elliott’s half birthday. In such a short time, it’s hard to believe how much he has grown, how much he has learned, how many people he has met and how he has changed our lives. Elliott is trying to cut teeth, pushing up on his hands and trying to crawl (though not succeeding yet), talking up a storm and already killing the ladies.

I suppose it’s especially fitting that we’re thinking about his half birthday at the same time as we’re turning a new leaf on the calendar… while I disagree with most people that 2010 marks the beginning of a new decade (as there was no year 0, decades should span ’01-’10)… it still feels like a major change. If nothing else, we’ll be declaring an additional dependent on our taxes for 2009! Whoa.

It seems like just yesterday, as well, that Auntie M and I were cautiously drinking small glasses of expensive champagne and bursting with anticipation of the new lives that 2009 promised. Mama and Daddy have been celebrating New Year’s Eve with S & M for about 7 years now, and this New Year’s Eve marks the 10th anniversary of Daddy meeting Uncle S and Auntie M… they have had a tough year, albeit blessed with their gorgeous daughter, and we feel fortunate to have them in our lives and in our son’s life.
