5 months!

Dear Lincoln,
You are just about 5 months old and you are without question, the light of my life! I can't imagine my life without you! Every single day you get cuter and more fun.

We didn't have a doctor's appointment this month so I just took these measurements:
You weigh 13.8 lbs
Are 24.5 inches long
Your head is 16.5 inches around

According to Baby Center, that means-
You are below the 5th percentile for weight
You are between the 5th and 10th percentile
For head circumference you are between the 10th and 25th percentile

You are so happy all the time and bring so much light and joy to everyone around you! You have your mom wrapped completely and hop
elessly around your finger! Even in the middle of the night, when I have to come into your room 12 times to calm your squawking, you grin at me and all is forgiven and forgotten! Your smile is the most rewarding thing on this planet!

You seem to be happiest when both mom and dad are home and we are spending time as a family. You have recently discovered how to roll over from both your front to your back, and your back to your front. Needless to say, your parents think you are a genius and are expecting your acceptance letter to Harvard any day now.
You love watching TV. If you can't see the TV, you will crane your neck, or turn yourself so you can see it. Mom thinks it's really funny, but also thinks she's created a monster!

You are ticklish and your laugh is sooo addicting! I would do anything to get a smile, or giggle from you! Here are some of the things that make you laugh the most:
  • Sometimes when we are singing songs I will change the words to include your name or just for the fun of it. One song that you love is "There was a Chels who had a dog and Dingo was his name-o."
  • When I try to get you to say or sign "mama." You just smile and laugh at me, as though I'm being funny!
  • You love looking at yourself in the mirror. There is a mirror in the car so I can check on you, and you love watching yourself! When we ride in the car you just giggle and squeal at yourself!
I feel so blessed to have you in my life, baby boy. In the words of my dad, You're perfect in every way. Head to toe, diapers included!

Love, Mama
