5 Months

Today is Charlie's 5 month birthday. I can't believe we have been responsible for a child for 5 months and we haven't seriously injured him. I have been worried that I would drop him or something but I haven't. These past 5 months have flown by. Char (his nickname) is so fun to have around. This photo depicts Charlie's usual disposition. Crabby. Mean. Upset.
Ok, So if you've ever met Charlie you know that's not true. He can't help but smile. He's also found his laugh and breaks it out all the time. He loves to grab his feet and he's learning to sit up (see picture #1).
Charlie loves to go places and be the center of attention. He really knows how to work a room.

One of his favorite activities is bath time. Originally we'd set up his tub in the kitchen sink but he learned how to splash his bath water and make a mess so we started putting his baby tub into the big bathtub. He loves to splash and we like to sing that Splish, Splash I was taking a bath song. The bath has become part of our nightly ritual.
Another favorite activity is walks in his stroller. Even though we take him for walks in pretty places, he's often asleep for the entire thing. We love our BOB stroller and Charlie loves the shocks and smooth ride it provides.
However when we travel we bring our snap and go stroller so his ride has been rough this week.
We love Charlie so much. We feel so lucky to have him with us and are trying to enjoy every minute.
