4 & 5 Months

Dear Andrew:

Mommy is a slacker so I'm combining your 4 and 5 month update. I rarely get on the computer when I'm home since I'm usually spending all my time with you.

The past two months have passed by so quickly. Soon you'll be 6 months old; that's half a year! Where did that time go?

In your 4th month you found your feet!  Once you found them you wouldn't let them go.  It was the cutest thing!

Grabbing your feet for Mom - February 19, 2013
You are so close to laughing and rolling over, but you didn't quite achieve those this month!

You went with Adam, Cassidy, Daddy and Mommy to the Roller Derby.  You seemed to enjoy it.  You love watching people and sports so this was great for you!  It was loud, but you didn't seem to mind that one bit.

Grandma feeding you with your Sippie - January 27, 2013
 You still love eating and you're always fantastic at sleeping.

In your 5th month you successfully rolled over both ways!  You still aren't a fan of being on your tummy, but you first rolled from your belly to your back.  You were so proud of yourself when you rolled over, looked up at me and saw that I was smiling and cheering you on!  A few days later you rolled from your back to your belly.  You immediately became a pro at that.

You started blowing raspberries. It's so cute!  But shortly you moved onto something else.  You also reached for Mommy for the first time!  You were hanging out with Grandpa while Mommy showered.  When I was done I walked over to you and you immediately reached out for me.  That was by far one of my favorite moments of your life thus far!

On our way to the Renaissance Festival - March 10, 2013
This month you went with Daddy and Mommy to the Renaissance Festival.  You weren't really interested in anything since you are still so young.  You still aren't a fan of your stroller, so Mommy wore you in the Ergo most of the day.  When we went to watch jousting you started crying because the cheering was loud and you were tired, so we decided it was time to take you home.

Then later that month you went with Adam, Cassidy, Daddy and Mommy to the The Great American BBQ and Beer Festival.  Again, Mommy wore you most of the time until we found a nice shady place to hang out all day.

Asleep on Mommy at the BBQ Festival - March 23, 2013
Sadly, a few days after the festival you got sick for the second time (first was when you were just a few weeks old), but this time it was worse.  You had a horrible cough and stuffy nose.  You were a wreck.  Mommy even had to stay home with you two days because you only wanted me.

You've had a busy two month, little boy.  I imagine they'll just keep getting busier as time passes.  You're getting close to being officially mobile!

Love you, forever and always,
