Has it been five months already? Wow.

This month, you've really been letting that little personality out! You're FULL of faces, just like SJ was when she was your age. You have a contagious smile, and you show it to anyone that is looking --- I love how happy you are. You've started to give hugs and kisses... big, open mouth, eat-your-face wonderful kisses and whole body curled up hugs and you squeeze so hard that you have to make a "mmmmmmmmmmm" sound. I can't even tell you how much I love that sound!

You're still a tough sleeper, so tough... that we have just stuck you in our bed for the most part because I just don't have it in me to get up 20 times in one night. But rest assured, Son, you'll be moving out of there before your teenage days.

You've started taking a little cereal and you seem to like it. I'm not quite sure about giving you anything else yet... it will come soon enough.

I still can't leave the room if you are in it - you like to have me around, which is nice... but you also are into EVERYTHING! You're pushing up and trying to scoot... but mainly, you just roll anywhere you want to go. It's kind of the cutest thing ever, especially your little proud of yourself face that you make when you get where you were planning on going.

You love to snuggle with Daddy and he rocks you to sleep almost every night. Some people will say that is a bad habit to start... but, I completely disagree because I know that these days will pass all too quickly and you won't want to be rocked anymore. My heart breaks to think of it.

Your big sister adores you and caters to you constantly. You most definitely have her wrapped around your precious little finger. But that's okay, because you love her just as much. If she is around, you have your eyes GLUED to her and you are all smiles. I sure hope you two stay this way.
I can't even imagine my life without you in it, how I ever took a step without you in my life, I will never know. You, little man, are such an incredible blessing to this family and to my life. I'm grateful for you every day.

The joy that you bring is indescribable - and most definitely irreplacable.

I love you all the way to the moon and back, we all do.

Love, Mommy.

You know what's funny about this.. I felt it necessary for our children to be trained to go to sleep on their own because our lifestyle required us to leave our children with someone else for overnight trips so many times. But, as soon as we changed jobs, we started letting our children get in our bed in the middle of the night. Now, on the rare occasion when Emma doesn't get in the bed with us, I get worried that she's getting to the age where she doesn't want to..

And you know what else I learned? The grandparents don't really mind them getting in the bed with them either when they have them..

I love you! He's growing so fast! I do hope you get some sleep though!
