Happy 5 Months Charlie!
Charlie is 5 months! He is the absolute the joy of our lives! We love everyday with him. Mommy and Daddy now wake up to the sound of Charlie squealing in his crib. He is such a happy baby. He LOVES to squeal! He has also gotten quite good at screaming when he cries. He is almost able to sit up on his own. He loves to stand with just a little help from Mommy and Daddy and can actually take a few steps too! He likes to make a clicking sound with his tongue. He loves to watch his hands and feet. He loves to smile and "flirt" with a captive audience. He is working really hard to fit his whole hand in his mouth. He has found his thumb and chews on it rather than sucking on it. He can now grasp objects. He can hold his binky and put it in his mouth. He can hold small teething rings. He loves to chew on Mommy and Daddy's fingers and cloth. He is rolling over more and more. He has learned to scooch on his tummy time mat. He loves bath time. (I think he is going to be a good swimmer!) He has graduated from his bassinet to his crib in his own room. He continues to sleep 10-11 hours at night. Just today he said "Da Da Da Da Da." We let Daddy have that as saying "Da Da!" He is at the stage where EVERYTHING goes to the mouth. He loves to cuddle and we LOVE that about him. He remains the center of our lives. We miss him all day when we are not with him. Thank you Lord for our wonderful blessing who You nuture everyday.
