|"I am five months old, and sitting next to my friend the bear."|
I really loved this past month. You are interacting with us a lot, and still so cuddly and sweet! You have changed so much this month. Looking back at the pictures from the beginning of the month you look so different to me!
|I had to take a photo shoot of you in your kitty hat before you outgrew it!|
A week into your fifth month, we traveled to Boise to visit grandma & grandpa and other extended family. Your great-aunts, grandma Kellie, and Aunt Megan hosted a shower for you. Everyone was so happy to see you again or meet you!
|Your second trip via airplane|

|Grandpa Jim thought you were pretty neat.|
|Great Aunt Kerry|

|You were worn out from the previous day of traveling!|
|You napped on me and we played some shower games.|

|Poor Becca! Grandpa Sean tries to comfort you. This photo cracks me up, sorry Becca!|

|Both you and daddy were worn out from the shower, so you took a nap together. We had to bring back the swaddle for a day.|
|Eating breakfast at the Egg Factory and celebrating St. Patrick's day with your Irish grandpa!|
|"Really mom? Was this hat necessary?" Yes Becca, it was. ;-)|
|There's a bit of Irish in all of us!|
After trying so hard last month to roll over, you succeeded this month! Most babies first roll from their stomach to back first, but you did the opposite and rolled from your back to your belly first. You use your legs to kick yourself over to your side (which you figured out last month, but got stuck after that), and this month you learned to tuck your shoulder and roll!
|Georgie told you a funny joke.|
Your dad and I joke that you need constant entertaining. You like a change of scenery pretty often, and you like interacting with others. You cry to us, "Entertain me!"
|I made this for you at my baby shower. You look so cute in it!|
You love bringing your feet up to your mouth. You've been doing the "happy baby" yoga pose a lot this month!
You started taking an interest in your toys. Before we'd try to show you toys and you didn't have much interest, but now you love grabbing toys and looking them over and bringing them to your mouth. You like Sophie the Giraffe, rattles, and a small stuffed orange monkey.
You've been doing this since you were very little, but I don't know if I've written about it - when you're eating and I have to unlatch you for some reason you say, "Eh, eh, eh," and open your mouth wide. I think you're telling me, "Mom, I wasn't done, I'm still hungry!"
We went to mom and baby yoga. We hadn't been for about a month and I really saw how you'd changed from the last time. This time you were rolling around on your blanket a lot and looking around. When I put you on my leg facing me in Warrior you started opening your mouth and getting excited. You definitely know where food comes from!
You've gotten more easy going with other people. My friend's mom held you for a few minutes while I went to get some frozen yogurt and you were totally cool with her. You even let her hold you some more when I got back.
|You look so sweet here|
Your dad is really enjoying being a dad now. He told me he thinks about you at work and he talks about you to his patients and shows them pictures of you. They all say you are such a cute baby!
|Taking a stroll around the neighborhood with daddy|
For a while there you were spitting up on me daily. Your dad joked about you, "I don't always spit up, but when I do, it's on mommy." I discovered that it makes more sense to just wash a portion of my hair that got spit up on than having to wash all of it before I was planning to.
|Happy Easter! Georgie photobomb|
When you wake in the mornings I bring you to our bed for your morning feeding and I really enjoy that. We get some good cuddles in to start our day!
|A typical weekend morning. Mommy's spot is right between Georgie and Becca.|
|Landon's mommy and I went to get manicures and pedicures and came home to this. Too cute!|
You love playing airplane! Daddy or I will lift you into the air and you lift your head to look around and kick your legs and laugh. Airplane will always cheer you up!
|"Hmm, which one of these should I stick into my mouth first?"|
|"Get me out of this carseat now!"|
|Almost sitting up!|
We measured and weighed you at home and you weigh about 16 pounds and are about 26.5 inches. I think I may have been off on the height measurement though. You started out the fifth month wearing a mix of 3-6 month and 6-9 month clothing, and now you are fitting perfectly in the 6-9 month sizes.
