Linco baby, you're almost 6 months old.
These past 5 months have been just the sweetest, best of my life.
You have brought deep joy to the heart of our little family, & we are all so grateful for you.
At 5 months you are long.
You are chubby.
You are drooly.
You are loud.
You are ridiculously sweet.
And you are very easily excitable.
You now have 2 teeth on the bottom of your mouth.
This month you learned to push up on your hands & knees & rock like a crazy man.
Your sister & brothers cheered so much when you started doing that, which you thought was awesome.
Now, you are so close to crawling.
And I'm trying not to panic about that little fact.
You love your feet.
Especially chewing on your toes.
Tucker thinks it's hilarious. Parker thinks its gross.
I can't get her to understand that your feet are just not dirty like hers.
She doesn't get it.
I love to watch you look at your hands or feet.
They're like long lost friends every time you see them.
And it makes me smile.
Your hair is still fuzzy & your cheeks are still so soft.
You are a grabby little thing these days & pretty soon, nothing will be safe in your reach.
You kick your legs & wave your little arms all the time.
And your really good at slapping your big ol hands on things.
Like dad's arms, our hands, or my face. You're pretty strong!
You are such a good little napper.
But still wake up once or twice a night.
That should probably end soon.
But you are my baby & I just don't mind enough yet to kick you to your own room.
You laugh like crazy when I shake my head & my hair gets in my face.
You have a funny little sense of humor.
Your favorite toys are the ones you can chew on, especially your elephant.
You seem to really like your blanket these days, but the paci days are long gone.
Which means, maybe, just maybe, you won't need to be broken of a habit in a couple of years like the rest of your siblings. Thank you for that.
When you're sleepy, you really like your mama to hold you.
You smile so big at your daddy when he comes home.
Parker sings Annie songs to you & you get so excited.
You make Tucker giggle so much with your funny faces & sounds.
And Truett loves to give you hugs & kisses all day long.
Your Grammy & Mimi are pretty sweet on you too.
And all the girls at church. You have a lot of fans.
You wake up happy & playful.
You give sweet hugs that none of us can get enough of.
When people see you, they always comment on how happy & sweet you are.
And they're right.
You make life awesome Lincoln man.
And we love you.
Happy 5 months!
