Baha'i Dad Chronicles: Month 6

Our son is 6 months old today. Times flies right? Douglass Ali is currently manifesting the qualities of a "big boy". He is sitting up on his own, making the final preparations for crawling, eating solid (well, mushy) food on a regular basis, giving eloquent speeches in baby talk and now laughs spontaneously whenever something tickles his fancy. He is also no longer the only baby in his day care, he has a younger companion whom he observes with what appears to be curiosity. He is not yet sleeping through the whole night (people always want to know that for some reason). Whenever he sees me he gives me a big smile and gets super excited. It makes me feel like the coolest guy on earth. Oh, and he does not like green peas (who does?). The weather is warming and I'm looking forward to spending more time outside with him enjoying God's beautiful creation. Stay tuned for the next installment at 7 months.

Be swift in the path of holiness, and enter the heaven of communion with Me. Cleanse thy heart with the burnish of the spirit, and hasten to the court of the Most High.

(Baha'u'llah, The Persian Hidden Words)
