5 Months Old!!

My Dearest Baby Luke,

I can't believe that 1 year ago today I was telling Memaw and Grandpa that you would be arriving! And now here it is, 5 months since you came into our lives. I am amazed every day with the new things you are doing. You are such a happy baby. You love everyone and will laugh and smile at anyone that will look at you...even people in the lines at stores!
In the past month you have started doing a lot of new things...
*You are now eating vegetables and fruit at dinner time. Your favorites are squash and carrots!
*You are rolling over from your tummy to your back. And...you are not far from rolling over the other way!
*You are always putting things in your mouth....Mommy's fingers, the remote control, Mommy's phone, toys...and your favorite--your FEET! This past month you have discovered your feet and you LOVE them. You are constantly putting them in your mouth. It doesn't matter if there are socks on them or not...you are going to put them in your mouth!
*You are talking more and more! You love to hear your voice!
*You are beginning to sit up!! You can sit by yourself for just a couple of seconds and then you start to fall over. I know it won't be long until you are sitting up and playing with all of your toys.
*You have started drinking water from a sippy cup. You mostly like to hold it and play with the handles, but you do get a few drinks out of it.
*And last...you are beginning to make it difficult for Mommy to change your diapers! You don't lay still like you used to! You are constantly turning and trying to grab the rails of the changing table or grab my wrists and pulling on me. Or...you are eating on your feet (like in the above picture from this morning!)!!!
Mommy is so happy that you are in her life. I love playing with you and hearing you laugh. And your smile could melt anyone!! I am looking forward to seeing all of the new things you do this month!!
Love,
Mommy
