I can't believe that it has been almost half a year since my baby boy was born! Amazing how time flies! So on the occasion of his 5 month birthday I thought I'd better jot down a few things about him that we can laugh over when he is older! My mother has these types of things written in baby books and we have gotten them out from time to time and laughed over them. So perhaps by his sixth month birthday I will be there - but for now, this format will have to do and hopefully I'll print and add to an amazing baby scrapbook someday - hehehe!
Cole, at five months old you are amazing us with developments each day. You are a very happy baby - always giggling and squealing with delight. You think your dad is the funniest! He holds you upside down by your feet and you roar with laughter. He smooches on you and dances you around and you giggle uncontrollably. Just in the past few days you have gotten really good at sitting up by yourself. We are still a little nervous about it but you are determined and you protest if we lay you on your back at all! You love to play on the bathroom counter in front of the mirror. You still love bathtime but unlike most babies, a warm bath just revs you up as you kick and splash in the water! So you are a late nighter recently and won't go to bed before 11 o'clock. You are just now interested in the dogs and you will watch them very seriously. You are very vocal and well, downright loud! You screech and scream with joy to anyone who will listen and you are starting to pause when we talk back to you - learning conversation. You love to listen to stories and your hands are always busy - grabbing the book, my hair, whatever you can reach so I know that soon you'll be helping me turn pages. Your hands are never still, mostly they play with your pacifier, holding it, throwing it, putting it in your mouth at all kinds of weird angles! All in all you are a joy to behold each day! We love you and can't wait to see what month 6 will bring!
