>> Monday, July 21, 2014 – Deacon Daniel
It is hard to believe we're at 5 months already! From the beginning, my mind hasn't really gone beyond 5 months, but time keeps on moving, ready or not.
For the record, these pictures are really difficult to take. I really need an assistant! You should see the shenanigans I have to go through to get them- and I'm not really looking at the camera when I take them, which is why (I think) most of the pictures are a tiny bit blurry.
I love when he stretched his legs out straight like he's doing below. He does it nearly every time I change him and I think it's quite adorable. In the mornings, he'll stretch everything out as far as he can- which is really far. He's such a long baby.
We are enjoying our summer! The five month highlights include visiting California, swimming for the first time, (doesn't he look like a little queen on his throne?) discovering Tebow and wanting to pet him, and rolling over. It's still not as easy for him to go from tummy to back, but he can do it. He has been going through some cranky spurts in the day where he doesn't want to be put down and doesn't want to be held. So we're trying out different carrier options. They seem to work for about 10 minutes.
Evan has had to work a lot this summer, weekends included, so Deacon and I have been visiting him and bringing him lunch on Saturdays. We love "bring your baby to work" day (but we miss daddy around here!)
We are still having a lot of fun together. Deacon is really enjoying "talking" (to me or himself) and touching people's faces, as well as Tebow's face. He seems to really like men with stubble, but last week he touched a friends face who has a lot of facial hair and he went from smiling to screaming in terror. Apparently too much facial hair scares him. It was sad and hilarious all at once
We sure love our happy little guy!
