I look at my son as we lay here in bed with my husband. Both are soundly asleep. It’s hard to believe that five and a half months has gone by since this little man entered our lives.
Yes, it has been difficult at times, but we are so thankful to have him.
He’s learned quite a bit in the last two months alone. He can now lift his head when he’s on his tummy (though he hates being there).
He’s also in love with the new knowledge that he can hold his feet. On more than one occasion, we’ve watched him pull his socks off.
He’s also getting better at sitting up, though sometimes he wobbles and tilts over still. I think he’ll be able to avoid that in the next month.
Other exciting news…he’s started eating “solids.” Right now it’s things like baby cereal, baby food, and puréed fruits and veggies…well, mostly fruits. He won’t eat it if its not sweet. I think he has inherited my sweet tooth.
He’s been to his first baseball game. We went to watch daddy coach the high school team.
And my little man loves it when we read to him. He’s even started “reading” to his teddy. It was so cute! He would look at the page, then start babbling, then look at his teddy, and babble some more.
When it’s all said and done, I know I am so blessed to have this little man in my life. I can’t wait to see what the next five months will bring.
