FIVE months

My baby boy is FIVE months old.
FIVE Months
I feel like maybe I have "mom eyes" because he is the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! He has the best smile (he is always smiling) and he has the biggest blue eyes.

He gets so excited when he sees Justin or me - he greets us with a huge smile and spastic arm/leg movements, like he is swimming in air. He is really enjoying his jumper now, really working out those legs. He isn't quite sitting up on his own yet, only for a few seconds at a time.

FIVE months

He is really into eating his feet ... and pretty much anything he can get his hands on. He does this thing now where he grabs our hair (and between the both of us, he has a lot to grab) and pulls us in with his mouth wide open and he tries to chomp on our faces... I'd like to think it's a kiss.

FIVE months

I've been waking up in the middle night to find him rolling around in circles in his crib.. this mobility thing is really exciting to him... too exciting to sleep, I suppose.

He isn't sleeping that great, he is up at least a few times a night and not really going back to sleep very easily. Some days I feel it more than others but whenever I start to get down about the lack of sleep I try to remember this is a short phase and soon enough I will be looking back fondly on this time wishing I could hold my baby. So, I'm going to try to relax and quit reading all these baby books on what to do... because, honestly, nothing is working (although I haven't tried EVERYTHING...won't let him cry it out). Honestly, I've learned to function off less sleep, thank God. So, I'm getting by. Plus, that face makes it a whole lot easier too.

It's so easy to see where he gets those big eyes from! I see the same ones behind him in that first picture!

He's beautiful - and growing so fast. :)
