I almost can’t believe that it was FIVE months today since we welcomed our bouncing baby boy into our lives. Where on earth does the time go? It just seems almost unreal.
So what is Garrett into now?
He loves bright colors. He is a pro at rolling from back to belly, but not so much from belly to back. He has a play mat that he just loves to lay on for hours! He loves his morning nap in his swing with the music playing. He can sit up while supported and prefers to be sitting up because he loves to see everything that’s going on. If he had the coordination to get his arms and legs going at the same time, he would already be crawling. I suspect he will be crawling by Thanksgiving. We’ve started the spoon and we are not impressed with it yet. Teething is in full swing and I think the bottom two will pop through relatively soon.
These last five months have been challenging, difficult, and a blast. I’ve never had something give me such joy every day of my life. Even when I’m having a bad day all it takes is one look at him and he can give me his grin and it’s like everything bad disappears. He’s definitely the best thing to have ever happened to me.

Congratulations on discovering the joy of motherhood Tara, now you know how your Mom felt when you as you grew up. Pretty soon little G will be walking and talking and then you will really have some interesting things to share as he manages to “create” his own special words.
Adorable! The smiles do make it all worth it (at least that’s what I tell myself since Gage has turned into a little brat since he hit 2 a few weeks ago :)). They only get cuter and more fun.
Haha! I’m not looking forward to the terrible twos necessarily – but I am ready for him to be able to tell me what he needs. I’m not very good at deciphering his cries 😦 … Can I skip ahead to the teenage years when he’ll sleep until noon?! Ha!
