5 months

Baby Boy, it has been a full, wonderful month with you.

On August 29th we had your baby dedication at church.

Such a wonderful day. You are loved by your church family.

Our special friends came over from Fort Worth to celebrate you with us.

We had lunch and dessert afterwards at our house and there were about a zillion kids here. Fun and wild. You like interacting with big kids so much. You had a great day.

You weigh over 15 lbs and are over 25 inches long! That's over two feet, buddy! Wow!

You learned to suck your thumb this month. It's really cute.

You've started playing with this puppy dog a lot.
Our friends Mindy, Jes, Amy, Emily and Baby Katelyn who gave her to you came to visit and we had so much fun with them.

You are so good at tummy time and are trying to scoot around a little.

You learned to sit up this month too. You watched your friend Liza sitting up when we went to her house and she set a great example! You sat up the best you ever had right after you watched her. Then the day Katelyn came over you started hanging onto your activity gym and sitting up while we visited.

Mama still likes to be ready to catch you.

We got Sophie the giraffe this month too and you love to chew on her!

We took you to one of our favorite restaurants, Rise no. 1, and showed you off for the second time to our favorite waitress there who first saw you when you were still in mama's tummy and was excited to find out if you would be a boy or a girl.

You sat in a high chair for the first time! We were at Freebirds with Mrs. Jessica. I think you liked it. You also sat in a high chair at the sushi restaurant with Mrs. Sarah and Mr. John and watched the tv! Oh dear.

You also sat in the grocery cart for the first time and you loved that! You were looking all around at everything. A whole new world has opened up to you with this new skill of sitting up.

You still like your exersaucer and all kind of things to play with whether they're intended to be toys or not. :)

It has been so much fun to sit and watch you play with your rings. You are very persistent. You like to chew on them and on the tower. They might even entice you to crawl one of these days. :) We'll see . . .
You and I are kind of getting the hang of this staying home together thing now that summer is sort of over and we're done traveling as much we've been getting into a routine.

We've been to baby storytime at the library with Mrs. Shevawn and Miss Claire and on some different outings and to visit friends and had a theme day with Mrs. Jenny and Colton and Caden. It has been lots of fun. I'm really ready for it to cool off some to make being outside and out and about even nicer.

Daddy took a half day off one day and we went around exploring with you and our camera. You got to ride in the hiking backpack for the first time. Such fun.

You bring so much joy to our lives and we love you very, very much! Happy 5 months, Buddy!

Great, more than one picture, one never enough. So cute.

Such a busy month with many milestones! Katelyn must have been inspired by the Little Man, because she has been trying harder to sit up lately too. She is doing pretty good with the side to side balance, but she still wants to lean forward until her belly is nearly touching the floor.

Great post! Quite a month. So glad it's going so well. Sitting up - a whole new world!

Karen said...

Thanks so much for sharing the monthly milestones. They are great! Can't wait for next months installment when we will have pictures with Nana and Ducca.

Ack, some how I missed this post! What a precious little boy. He is such a sweet mixture of you and Adrian. If he keeps up this developmental pace he'll be walking by the the time he's 9 months!

The jeans are killing me!!!
