Five Months

Dear Budder,
Five months!  I can't believe you are FIVE MONTHS!  Kid, you are awesome.  You are so much fun.
You're eating solids now.  So far we have had oatmeal, sweet potatoes, squash, and avocado.  Big fan of the orange veggies, not so much the green.  But boy do you eat with gusto.  I've barely got the spoon back into the bowl and you've got your mouth open for more.
You are growing like a weed.  Since you are eating solids you have chubbed up big time.  In one week you cut a tooth, three days later cutting a second one OVERNIGHT.  You are starting to inch your way around.  Not fully crawling yet but it's coming.  You taught yourself to make the motorboat sound with your lips one morning at 4 am right in my ear.  And talk, talk, talk.  You love to jabber.  To me, to Daddy, to anyone that will listen.  You have this shriek that cracks me up.
Speaking of Daddy, you two are madly in love.  When he gets home it doesn't matter WHAT we are doing you are twisting and turning to see him.  If he walks right in and then walks out of the room you get really unhappy.  You guys spend lots of time hanging out and talking, watching a little TV.  Daddy likes to lay down with you at night to put you to sleep.  He's the big softie.  Mommy puts you in your bed to sleep and would let you cry it out, but Daddy hates that.
Everyday you are doing something new.  Noticing more of your world.  I am loving having this summer off with you to hang out and watch you grow.  You are such a sweet, wonderful little man.  Somedays I look at you and I'm just overwhelmed by how much I love you.  I hope you always know that.

I love that last pic. You'll be so glad you have this blog when he is all grown up and you can look back and see all the little things you two were doing together.
