When I think about Tate being in our lives, it’s hard to believe that he is already six months old, and somehow it feels like he can’t possibly have been in our lives for merely half of a year. Hasn’t he always been a part of our family?
He was a bright ray in an otherwise difficult and tumultuous time in our lives.
He’s got round cheeks and chubby thighs, and a toothless grin that makes my day. Sometimes it’s easy to forget he didn’t come out that way. All it took was comparing Tate to a 2 week old baby. The stark comparison easily showed that in just a few months he’s grown into a little man with a mind and personality all his own.
I have done my best to capture Tate’s first half year with us. I started out with the intention to take pictures in a series. I lost my focus on that project, but have made a very real effort to take pictures. And with all his changes, I am already cherishing them.
