Dear Elijah boy,
I just can't believe you are 5 months old today. One more month and you'll be half a year! Woah! You are growing and changing every.single.day. In fact, today you started doing this thing where you spit your pacifier out AS SOON as I put it in. It's hilarious! Except for when I'm trying to put you down for a nap. You're little personality is really coming out these days and it's so fun to interact with you. You are such a blast! You still love your jumper like nobody's business and love to stand (with help, of course!) You are so close to sit-up by yourself. You're still a little top heavy so fall forward as soon as we let you go. One of your new favorite things is having us read to you. I think you like looking at the pictures but you especially love chewing on the books. I think you're teething, although I've thought that for a while now. You are chewing on everything (like said books) and drooling like crazy. You don't seem to be in too much pain though, thankfully.
You are wearing 6-9 month clothes pretty much exclusively now but can still fit in some 3-6 month stuff. We think you are weighing around 18 lbs these days, but won't know for sure until your 6 months appointment. Also, you are still wearing size 3 diapers. Target brand for the win!
Elijah, I love you so much! I hope you always know my deep, unconditional love you. I feel so thankful for you and blessed that the Lord chose me to be your momma. Knowing that it was a hard road to have you makes you even more special, if that's even possible. You are my joy! I love you!
