5 Months Old

Dearest Perron,

Well, you really took us on a roller coaster ride this month. We have learned from the very beginning that you never liked doing things the easy way. Luckily we have found that the hard way still provides the same precious reward. Your vision gave us quite a scare, but you proved everyone wrong again and chose to show us that your vision was just fine on Thanksgiving. What a true reason to give thanks!

You are weighing in at 10 lbs. 11.5 ozs. You are wearing your 3 month clothes and they fit you pretty well. You are super skinny, but your feet are huge so you usually grow out of clothes because your feet are too long for the footie part. You are still in Level 1 diapers, and I have a feeling you will be for quite a while because they go all the way up to 14 lbs. I think we have a while until we get there. You are eating 5 and a half ozs. at a time. It is hard to belive that when you first started to eat you were only getting 10 ccs at a time. My how things change in five short months.

You are so cute and you love to smile. You have started laughing too, which is the most adorable sound in the entire world. You love to be tickled and you will let out these short burst/squeals of laughter which are so funny. You love it when mommy sings and dances for you. We are like a regular Broadway production together. You can regularly roll from your stomach to your back and you are starting to experiment with trying to roll from your back to your stomach. I can tell that you are starting to work through the process, because you will kick your legs over to the side as hard as you can. You can roll from side to side, so I know it is only a matter of time. You love to put EVERYTHING in your mouth. That is the primary way that you play with things. Your favorite toy is your hungry catepillar. You are so strong and you still love to stand in your mommy's lap and look around. You can sit up if we support you and you can even sit in your Bumbo chair for a little bit of time, as evidenced in your picture this month. We just put your jumparoo together for you today and you LOVE it. You don't understand how to make it bounce, but when mommy does it for you you just smile and laugh and look so excited.

It is hard to imagine that this time last year I was pregnant with you and didn't even know it. It seems like so much has changed in such a short period of time. The trials that we have all been through together this month have only made your daddy and I love you even more. I didn't think that was possible. You are our reason for being. We are so proud of you and can not believe that you are ours. You bring so much joy into our lives!

We love you more every day,

Mommy and Daddy
