Dear Sweet Cuddle Bug Sione'
You are almost 5 months old now and the last 2 months have been a trip!
You are now almost 20 pounds and Mommy just cant believe how fast you have grown. You are just the chunckiest thing i have ever seen and the most beautiful baby boy Mama has ever laid eyes on. I just wanna kiss you all day long.
Your little personality is starting to shine. You always wake up happy and have a smile for anyone who talks to you. However, you are a true Mama's boy! If anyone else is holding you and you see me you start to whine and will not stop til you are in my arms. Then you resume smiling and cooing at those around you.
You are a rolling machine now. You like to lay in the floor (with the company of others) and roll all over the place. You also try to do a basic army type crawl but it is so adorable to watch you try. You love going outside and being in you jumper but refuse to use it indoors. We have been outside a lot lately because the weather is finally warming up. You are just so darn cute looking wide eyed all around at your new surroundings.
You are on a pretty good schedule now. I allowed you to set it yourself and never force you to sleep. It is something new to me since with your brothers i always chose the schedule and forced the naps. You usually go to bed around 10 or 11 and wake around 6 or 7. You go back to bed for your morning nap around 9:30 or 10 and sleep for an hour or so. You take a long afternoon nap from 1 to about 4 and the a small evening nap aroung 5 or 6. You always let me know when you are tired and never struggle against the feeling.
You started baby food last month and we have been enjoying every minute of it. The only thing you really do not like is Bananas and Peaches. You love everything else and especially your Peas and Apples. I think that is sue to the fact that they are a littloe thicker than everything else so we may try some stage 2 and see if you like it better. You also now take your cereal in the mornings out of a bowl. It was hard to convince daddy that you didnt need it in your bottle to help you sleep but you showed him that you sleep just fine without it.
So you eat your cereal in the morning and then a veggie and fruit for lunch around 12 and then a veggie and fruit for dinner around 6. You are doing so well with a spoon and it really shocked me. I think you just like your food and dont care how it gets to you hehe.
Yesterday (04-01-10) you reach for me for the very first time. I just about cried when i saw you little chubby arms jet out from your Daddy's body and jerk towards me. It was a first for you and the cutest thing i think i have seen.
I am so happy everyday looking in your face and seeing how much you love me and your family. We allk love you so so much and cant imagine how we possible did without you for so long. You are our little angel and we love you.
(i will be adding pictures soon i promise)
