Joshua: 5 Months

My boy is five months old today! Wow, I can’t believe five months have gone by since he was born.

He was born with a thick head of dark hair, but now he is practically bald except for a little mohowk in the middle of his head. It’s funny.

He loves to play with this toys, more than Lucas ever did at this age. We have several “baby toys” that he loves to put in his mouth, bat at and look at it. Something else I’ve noticed that is much differant than Lucas was: he doesn’t like dirty diapers. Still, to this day, Lucas could care less about sitting in a dirty (pee or poop) diaper. Joshua however… I change his diaper twice a night usually. He especially doesn’t like cloth, since they absorb differently and you can “feel” the wetness faster; I change those very often. 

Lucas and him get along pretty well. Joshua always grabs his hair or face if he comes near him. He even takes his pacifier out of his mouth if we are laying together which is really funny. He will look at his big brother and get a huge smile on his face! Every day Lucas becomes better with him and, actually, he’s really starting to become very helpful.

Joshua already has a really fun personality. He giggles and laughs all the time. He does lots of little grunts and squeals, and he is almost sitting up on his own! I’m enjoying this stage, but I’m getting more and more excited for when both my boys are older and they can play together and we can go out and do fun things!

I feel so blessed that he is healthy and happy!!
