This week, you turned 5 months old. I love counting the months with you and watching you change daily. The first 12 months of a child’s life is so amazing. Here are some random details about life with you at 5 months old…
-Every morning when you wake, your sister practically announces to the world that you’re awake. Then she proceeds to invade your personal space and exam to see if you’ve grown more hair over night. Then, she announces to the world that you have more hair.
-You poop. A lot.
-There’s something super special about your eyes. Seriously, the way you look at me is crazy intense. You stare at me like I’m the only person in the world who matters. It’s the best.
-You do not like sleeping in your crib. So, my dear, you sleep with your dad and I. And honestly, I love it. You’ll have the rest of your life to sleep by yourself. Right now, I want you with me.
-I really think you’re wanting real food. You’ve been a momma’s milk only baby but I don’t think it’s cutting it anymore.
-Your baby rolls are coming along quite nicely. You could use a few more though.
-Nearly every morning, at 4am, you wake and start blowing raspberries.
-You smile all the time. And your smiles cheer me up when I’m all grumps.
The weather has now turned chilly in Texas. You and I will make it through the winter by cuddling. A lot.
Happy 5 months my sweet Easton Maxwell.
