5 Months Old!!

Yesterday, Mr Man was 5 months old, and I cannot tell you what a blessing it is to have him in my life.

Some amazing things Mr Man does at 5 months:

  • He say "hi" - yes he does, my mom even heard it 3 or 4 times yesterday.

  • He rolls on his back to his tummy - he hasn't figured out how to roll to his back yet, but I have no doubt he will conquer this soon!

  • He babbles all the time - especially when he is in the car - secretly I think he is singing to the songs, but who knows?

  • He is teething like a fool! He has had diarrhea, spit up, a stuffy nose and has been aggresively putting cold things in his mouth

  • He spins. He hasn't gotten the crawling thing down, but while on his tummy he can do a whole 360.

  • He knows about cause and effect. If he pushes something, he understands it makes sounds, or if he pulls something he understands it will come to him.

  • He LOVES his mural (thank E and O!) Every time I change his diaper he stares at the sun and says ooooohhh!

I know every mom says this, but it is truly a joy to watch your baby grow and learn. Every day is a new adventure, and every day he makes me laugh! I am exhausted and I can't remember what a nap or sleeping throught the night feels like, but to spend as much time with my child as I get to, makes me appreciate life in the smallest way!

5 months is absoultely without a doubt my most FAVORITE age. They are almost ALWAYS pleasant, and they can't quite get into trouble. Congrats on the exciting milestone!
