I hate being dominated.
6.N(b)d2 blocking the check & defending Bc4 was a better move
6...Na5 for instance, moving it away from attack (could go e7 or back to b8 but those are no better)
7.c3 & the queen must retreat with you having gained a developmental lead, a strong center & black's Na5 in a poor position.
Castle to the KS from here & you'd be struggling to lose this one...
