What a little man you are becoming...already 5 months!  I was talking to a friend today about your amazing birth and how crazy it all was.  I think I was in shock because of how fast everything went.  I hold little newborns and marvel that you were once as little and fragile.  I marvel because you do so much that these new little babes can't.  You have such strong legs, which makes for lots of standing time.  You do this awesome move we call the inch worm, because when we lay you on your back and your legs are being held, you will push off.  You continue pushing as long as we keeping moving your feet.
You sleep really good, but I can't guarantee how long it will be.  I try to plan out things for the day, but sometimes you sleep a lot and sometimes not so much.  I'm going to have to come to terms with that.
You're getting super close to rolling fact every time I put you down to sleep you arch your back, get on your right side, and slurp on at lest 2 of your fingers.  Sometimes you get so lively at night that when I come to get you I've found you turned 90 degrees in the crib.
You still are figuring out cereal and why we're shoving a spoon into your mouth, but hopefully soon it won't see like such a foreign concept.
We have all your swim gear ready to go, we have just been waiting for warmer weather and a chance for dad to join us.  Dad is particularly excited to get you in for your first swim.
Right now you love going on walks with us in the bjorn or the stroller...either one suites your need to get out and see the world.  You also love it when we read stories and you get to turn the pages, not that you know what you're doing, but you love to bat at them anyways.
You're not a loud one, and for that I'm grateful.  I didn't have anything to compare it to until the new babies started showing up to church.  You're whiny, but definitely not loud.
There is just sooo much we love watching you do and learn Finn.  What a wonderful, crazy, whirlwind 5 months it's been.
