Today, my precious boy, you are 5 months old. Your five month birthday finds us on the road in Texas where you are developing quite the fan club following amongst your cousins who repeatedly call who gets to get you up from your naps, who gets to put you down for one, who gets to feed you, hold you, make you smile...etc. Currently you have no less than 5-6 people that cater to your every grunt, squeal and especially those smiles.
and Exhibit C...and I have about 4,000 more where these came from. You literally smile almost all the time.
Month Five has turned out to be a really fun month for you as we start hitting the fun developmental milestones. This month, you have finally perfected your rolling abilities both back to front and front to back at will.
And when she did not listen!
Maverick has started watching over you, talking to you when you are upset, patting your head when he babbles his toddler babble and at the best moments he runs up and gives you a quick kiss on the top of the head and then scurries off to finish his very important toddler tasks of the day leaving you to register what just happened and look around for where it came from...
Your smile as he runs off is priceless. And for me, in that instant, life is beautiful. Our little family.
