Is it possible to enjoy a baby too much because I just can't stop! Isn't he just squishably cute?!? I can't get enough and absolutely don't want him to grow up, though he's sprouting right under my nose. This month has been a huge month of milestones and growth for Conrad: he learned to roll over and started eating solid food! Having a baby around the house makes things so much busier, but I wouldn't trade all the smiles and my full happy heart for anything. I'm so proud of my baby. Conrad, I love you to the moon and back and over and over again. You're a perfect fit for our family and I already can't imagine our lives without you.
Some details about life with Conrad at 5 Months:
:: Conrad is a pretty chill and happy baby--especially if his mama is near. I love how I'm the one person who can fix anything in his little world. He's definitely attached. Once, I came home from a workout to a whiny baby, but his face suddenly lit up as soon as he saw mine. Aww. Way to make me feel like a million bucks. Conrad is generallly full of smiles and occasionally protests his car seat and being put down, but for the most part is just happy to be here along for the ride.
As for a schedule? Ha! We have no schedule! Poor kid might have one by now if we actually stayed home all afternoon or in the evenings, but between two older kids and church activities, that's simply impossible. Thank goodness he's so easy-going.
:: With the change of weather from winter to spring, Conrad has developed some eczema all over his tiny body. The good news is that it's created a daily routine that we both love. I sing as I apply his lotion and massage it into his teeny arms and squishy thighs. He smiles and coos and eventually errupts into laughter as I play and tickle him. It's seriously one of the best moments of the day!
:: Baby boy enjoys rough housing. Conrad laughs out loud when I blow bubbles on his neck. His thighs and back are extra ticklish. He enjoys being gently bounced on the couch. And he gives me sloppy kisses as we make faces in front of the mirror. Babies are sooo much fun to play with!
