Five months. It doesn't seem possible. I know I say that every month, but WOW.
It's been a busy month for Mommy and Daddy (as you can note I'm already a full week behind schedule with this letter.) Between 4th of July, my new job and numerous other events we've been pretty much on the go non-stop. Yet, through it all you keep being the smiley baby we've grown to know and love.
I got an email today from BabyCenter - one of those "This is what is going on with your 5 month, 2 week old." Basically it said that now is the time that your "Stranger Danger" tendencies may be kicking in, making it impossible to hand you off not only to strangers, but even to those people you know. Shockingly (can you hear my sarcasm?) you haven't gotten there yet. You are perfectly content to go to Gram, Grandma Janice, Timmy, anyone.
Let's talk about rolling for a minute here. Not only are you rolling front to back AND back to front, but you are also rolling EVERYWHERE. You see the exercauser over there....roll three times and you're at it. You don't want to sit in your bouncer anymore? Oh that's ok, you'll just attempt to roll out of it too. Out of control. I know this is just the beginning, but man alive, can you sit still for 30 seconds? 9 times out of 10 we find you just rolling back and forth in your crib with your feet in your mouth.
You're getting closer and closer to sitting by yourself. Most of the time you'll sit there for about 5 seconds and then fold in half or fall to the side. That's ok though, you'll just roll out of it and continue on your way.
While I know there has been so much more that I want to share with you, I'm sadly exhausted and can't even think straight right now. Just know that we love you, more and more everyday.
