How have Taylor Swift‘s first six months as a godmother been? “Pretty wild.”

The “Out of the Woods singer recently celebrated the half-birthday of godson Leo Thames Newman, along with his mom, Jaime King.

“Pretty wild that 6 months ago, LT wasn’t even born yet and now he chews on my fingers,” Swift, 36, captioned one Instagram post, of herself with Leo Thames sitting comfortably in her lap (and fingers comfortably in his mouth).

“LT is 6 months old today!!” she wrote alongside a second picture, showing her with Leo and King, 36.

Even juggling a world tour (and other squad commitments), Swift has made sure to make time for Leo Thames, since his birth in July.

“Meeting my boy,” she captioned their introduction, sharing a second photo of his hand curled around hers, along with a lyric from her song “Never Grow Up:” “Your little hand’s wrapped around my finger and it’s so quiet in the world tonight … ”

As King previously explained to PEOPLE, about the decision to name Swift Leo Thames’ godmother, “It wasn’t because it was this person and the name. It was really because of her morals and her values, the way that she treats people and how hard-working she is. … That’s the kind of person I want to be the guide and the spiritual protector of my child.”

Oh, such sweet pictures! I have four godchildren and love them all SO much, as I’m sure Taylor loves her little godson. He’s such a cutie!

Must say, though, that I don’t really get the “half birthday” thing! The very word “birthday” means marking the day the child was born. Why not just say six months old? That confuses the heck out of me. Other than that, though, I found this to be a wonderful post!

Pretty sure Tatlor is not 36 years old… The art of proofreading is very much dead.

Half birthdays are not a thing. We don’t need anymore bs gift grabs.

“Half birthdays” brought to you by the idiots who invented “graduating” from Kindergarten, 6th grade, day care, etc.
Just because something is special doesn’t allow you to co-opt it and think you’re special, too.

I have a summer birthday, and always felt a little left out for school treats! Happy to see that schools now offer a half birthday opportunity (during the school year) for students to bring treats. But, that’s the only reason to celebrate a half birthday! Have to agree on the unnecessary preschool/kindergarten graduation, and trophies for just participating!
