A Slideshow Journey: Six Months of The Mighty Arlo

It seems like this moment was only yesterday, not 6 months ago.

It probably happens at least once a week here on Baby’s First Year that one of us puts up a post with the question “HOW DID WE GET HERE SO FAST?” And this week it’s my turn. First Arlo was gaining head control. Then he was smiling, making funny sounds. And now… now this kid is eager to crawl. He’s SO CLOSE to making it happen.  I can’t believe my sleepy newborn is already half a year old. HOW DID WE GET HERE SO FAST? (and there goes that question again…)

Click through to reminisce on our journey with our sweet Arlo Redding. From bringing home a fuzzy blonde newborn, to our battle with reflux, an Occular Albinism diagnosis and now… the strongest, happiest little boy I know.
