5 months old
Oh, how is it possible that we already have a 5 month old?! I mean seriously!!! I can't believe this baby is 5 months old. He gets bigger every day and has really started to become like a real person lately. J man has finally realized who the dogs are and will smile and put his hand out like he's trying to pet them when they come near. He turns his head in the direction of someone talking and when the hubs or I walk into his line of vision he'll follow us as we move he also does this to Father Greg at church when we're listening to a homily. We're finally over the dreaded rolling-to-tummy stage and now he'll do it and hang out there for awhile before screaming. In fact it's his preferred sleep position. He's also a lot more vocal now when he doesn't like something and recently if he's trying to grab something or you take something away from him he gets very angry. He's also much more aware of permanent people in his life and occasional people. He also LOVES books especially when they're read to him while he's in his nightly bath. He looks at the those pictures and sometimes he furrows his brow like he's trying to figure out what's going on. He also loves the Itsy Bitsy Spider and the ABC's. We've also survived his first cold which lasted for 2 weeks.
I really cannot comprehend that in a month I'll have a half-year old baby. Time is really flying by and from what I hear it only goes faster. And I want desperately for it to slow down but at the same time I'm so excited and anxious to see what kind of person this beautiful meatloaf will turn into. Happy 5 months my Booboo! We love you oh so much and we, literally, cannot remember life before you.
