On Saturday Jackson turned 5 months old! Where the time has gone, I have no idea.

This month was full of travel, firsts and fun.

We traveled to VA, DC, DE & PA

Tried “big boy” food

Learned to hold his own bottle and to grasp things when I say “take it”

Rolled over on his belly and back, all by himself

Practiced new consonants and vowels

Learned to LAUGH and never stopped

Continued to grow his huge, infectious, sweet personality

& filled our hearts and home with even more love and laughter than we knew existed.

Every day I fall a little more in love with my little boy who is growing up and filling out far too fast! His infectious smile and laugh, his endless love and curiosity, his sweet and loving personality. I’m the luckiest girl in the world to be called his mom.
