Joseph's 5 Month Letter

Dear Joseph,
You are 5 months old now, and are such a sweet, happy baby boy.

You've had a busy month, and have been reaching so many new milestones. You're very active now, and aware of everything that is going on around you. You recognize our faces, and practically throw yourself at me when I get near you. You have the most adorable belly laugh, and smile all day long. (Except when you see the camera come out!)

You started eating solid foods this month, and LOVE them! We started you on single grain oatmeal, which is your favorite. You like fruits and vegetables too, but you smack your lips for oatmeal. When you see the bowl, you start waving your arms and legs in excitement, and if i'm being too slow to feed you, you'll grab the spoon from my hand! Feeding you has become so much fun, it's one of my favorite times of day because you are so thrilled to be eating solids.

*Your first food experience

You're also finally doing better with your bottles. We switched you to a gentlease formula, and it has made a world of difference. You still don't sleep through the night, but the formula switch has eased your gas issues, which gives us a few solid hours at a time over the course of the night. Thank you for that!

You are never in your bouncy chair anymore, and hardly ever in your swing. You made the move to the exersaucer, and it is your favorite place to be! You play with all the toys, and make the music and lights come on.

*Loving your exersaucer

Your favorite toys are now Mortimer the Moose and Sophie the Giraffe. You love to chew on both of them, which soothes your poor, swollen gums. (You have been teething for quite some time now, but still no teeth other than the rogue canine that popped out when you were 3 months.)

*You roll from your back to your tummy whenever we put you under your playgym

It amazes me how much you learn and grow every day. You're so curious about the world around you, and use your hands and mouth to discover all that you can. Even when I think my heart is so full it's about to burst, I find that each day I love you a little bit more. Thank you for being the sweetest baby boy there ever was. I love you a million billion!
