Deacon Elliott is half a year old! It's hard to believe that 6 months ago I was on hospital bed rest awaiting his arrival. He has been nothing but pure joy. Always smiling, talking, and loving life. He is slowly catching up on all the cool things 6 months olds do. And I am have "DUH" moments when I worry that he should be hitting a milestone and he isn't even close. Because had he been born on his due date (January 28th) he would only be 4 months old right now. DUH! So he is just where he should be and we love him so much! Next month he has to have surgery to fix a birth defect. It's a simple procedure and he can go home the same day. But I do worry about my little guy having to go under and being away from me. He has been through a lot with being in the NICU and has proved to be a fighter, so I trust he will be just fine. He'll probably wake up smiling, as he does every time he gets up. He rocks! Love!
