5 Month Letter to Everett

Dear Everett,

Happy 5 months my little, little! You are cute as ever! If I am being honest, this was a fussy month for you. I think your teeth are getting ready to come in, and you are not happy about it. You put anything you can reach into your mouth, including your feet! Ev, you are one flexible baby.

Toes!

You want to be held and loved on all day long. Because I am carrying you so much, I’ve been wearing you in the wrap more. You love taking walks around the neighborhood, watching Denver run in the big field, listening to the breeze, and blinking the sun out of your eyes. It is very hot this month, so we’re both covered in sweat by the end of the walks, but it’s good exercise for me and interesting for you.

Walking and sweating

You’ve recently learned how to fall asleep for naps on your own. It wasn’t even a difficult transition. One day you were super squirmy in my arms, so I laid you in your crib, and you fell right asleep! I LOVE that you don’t need to be rocked to sleep anymore, because Denver is now able to participate in the pre nap routine. We all read books together, and it brings a bit of peace to our often chaotic days. Your favorite book isĀ Where’s My Nose. You sit intently looking at the pictures and grabbing the pages. I think we read it 3 times a day right now.

Happy in crib!

Reading with Denver

The biggest news this month is that you’re sitting up on your own, as of 2-3 days before you turned 5 months. You were completely uninterested in sitting up one day, and the next day you could sit up for minutes on end! Way to go little man! This is such a fun new milestone!

Sitting!

Now that you’re sitting up, I was able to compare similar baby pictures of you and Dad. You two really do look alike!

Happy 5 months my sweet boy, Everett. I hope this month will be full of laughs and giggles and maybe even some teeth!

Love,

Mama

P.S. Here are a few pics of the two of us. Love our snugs, baby boy.

  1. Hi Lindsay,

    This post is so sweet. I’m writing in behalf of CafeMom website. We’d like to use the photo from your baby announcement (of the three snowmen) in a fun article about cool winter themed pregnancy announcements. Would it be okay if we use it?

    Let me know.

      Hi Sierra,

      So sorry it’s taken me so long to respond. What a fun idea for a post. If you would still like to use the photograph, that would be fine with me! Thanks so much for checking.

      Thank you,
      Lindsay
