You are 5 months old this week. It seems like last week you were born.
Look how little you were!
You love Sesame Steeet.
Elmo is your favorite.
You laugh and make baby talk all the time now. You gabber like you’ve really got something to say.
You grab everything and of course it goes into your mouth. Yesterday you got your first tooth. You would have thought by your families reaction that you had just won the gold medal.
We still spend most mornings, just you and I, around 7:30 sitting on the porch watching the neighborhood kids go to school. We watch the cars drive by and we talk about the kind of car it is and the color. There’s a BIG white Car or there’s a little GREEN car!!!
I’m sure the neighbors are really sick of our songs. We sing a lot on the porch.
You love “The ants go marching” and “Apples and Bananas. ”
You like to jump. It can be with your feet on the ground but you really like to jump on our bellies.
You can roll from you back to your front and from your front to your back.
You are practicing crawling. You are really good at “the swim”
Pops and I have been talking about how we need to get gates on the stairs soon. No babies falling down stairs please.
You will sit long enough to read a book if it’s an exciting one. Old McDonald is a favorite. Of course singing goes along with it.
You are a big boy, Jack Wissinger. You weigh 18.6 pounds and you are 26.25″ tall.
You will be sitting up soon all by yourself and Mommy says you will start trying new foods in a few weeks.
You had your first chiropractic adjustment this week. The Dr. said you were perfect.
You have discovered your tongue.
You are a happy little boy.
