5 months!

I can't believe that 5 months has come and gone!  Wow!  I remember when Thomas was a newborn thinking we would never get to this point.  But here we are!  It is such a joy to have this little boy for a son. 

Thomas is smiling and laughing up a storm, still as well-behaved and happy as ever and sleeping 12 hours each night with no feedings! We are so blessed.  He usually takes 3 or 4 naps a day.  We had completely gone down to 3 until they became 45 minutes each and I had a cranky baby on my hands!  So, on the 45 minute days, he takes 4.  He has finally had a few longer naps here and there, so i am hoping that he will get back into that habit.  We'll see!  

Thomas is so much more aware and is really starting to love playing with his toys! He absolutely LOVES his bath and spends the entire time kicking and splashing his daddy.  He loves listening to songs and is very ticklish.  Thomas also likes any game you play with him {peekaboo, patty-cake, etc.} and smiles the moment he gets attention.  He puts EVERYTHING he can get his hands on in his mouth, though his favorite "toys" are still his own hands!   

He has mastered chewing on his thumb.

Or just two fingers...

Or maybe three?

 Why not both hands?

He is still not a big fan of tummy time, though the paci often helps it last longer.  

So, now we are tackling month 6 and I just can't believe it! Every month just gets better and better!



  1. Aiden HATED tummy time. Like screamed bloody murder. I was a bad Momma and we didn't do a lot of it.

    He is sooooo super cute with his hands in his mouth. I can't believe he is so big. Can't wait to be home and see you guys!

  2. Love all the photos! He sure looks like a happy baby.
