Henry ~ 5 Months

Man oh man... time sure is flying by. 

Big H is 5 months old! I knew it would feel like time was flying with our second baby. You get so caught up with the insanity of multiple children that it is easy to forget to take the time to really enjoy these early months. I have been making an effort to take in as much of Henry as possible. We have so much fun together when we find time to hang out alone and I am trying to store away sweet memories of him at this young age. I want to remember the way he smells and the squeals of happiness he makes. I want to remember how cute and awkward his hands were when he first started reaching out for his toys. I want to remember the way he looks at his Dad.... like he is the most incredible human being in the world. 

Big H had a bit of a growth hiccup this last month. He only gained 2 ounces in three weeks and the nurses began to get a little bit concerned. We upped his solids and made and effort to ensure that he is still breastfeeding like a champ and he has gained weight! He now weighs in at a lean 14lbs 9oz and is 64.5cm tall. He is really into his toys, has a permanent stream of drool and loves his sister to bits. 

This little man is simply the bees knees. Love him to death.
