(surprise, surprise, I'm WWWAAAYYY behind on posting this again. So even though Matthew is 6.5 months, I'm posting this as if he just turned five months...! It's my blog, and my main purpose in posting is so we can look back and remember all these precious and fleeting memories!)
You are 26.5 inches long (95th percentile!)
You are wearing size 2 diapers, and 3-6 month clothes.
You took your first cross country trip!
We had SUCH an amazing trip to Washington DC and South Carolina. You were a great traveler!
You went in a swimming pool for the first time, and LOVED it!
You are belly laughing, and it is about the sweetest thing ever!
You are grabbing at EVERYTHING with your hands, and reaching for things in front of you.
You love to grab our faces. We are having to teach you to be gentle!
I cannot believe how aware you are becoming of your surroundings!
You are pushing up onto your hands with your chest lifted so high...your legs pump fast too....one of these days you are going to take off! Your can push and move yourself with you legs, but haven't figured out how to move your arms at the same time.
You roll everywhere! A couple of weeks ago, Mommy and Daddy were doing some work in our backyard, and we had you inside on the floor. One minute we looked in and you were crying, stuck up against the chair on the opposite side of the room where we left you. Next thing we knew, you had rolled to the complete other side of the room, and had rolled under your swing. About a minute later, you had rolled in front of the back door, peeking your head outside, with a grin of complete satisfaction!
Sleep hasn't changed much from last month...
Uncle Adam's overall from when he was a baby! PRECIOUS!
You discovered your toes!
We love you SO much, and are trying to cherish every moment we get with you,
because time is passing so quickly!
