jake 5 months


Sweet Jakey,

I decided that this photo series might have not been my best choice. I am struggling to hold you up like this at 5 months…how am I going to hold you up at 12 months?! You are one chunky little baby. We still like to call you Baby Tiny though.

This month you still are not really rolling. You can, but you don’t. Big baby problems. You are doing other fun things like starting to sit up, grabbing toys, trying so hard to grab our food (I have been dragging my feet on starting you on food…it’s just one more thing, you know?) and holding onto your toes all the time (reminds me of your sissy!). Pretty much you are grabbing everything. And you are so smiley. Lots of smiles all the time. You giggle when we tickle you but we are still waiting for you to giggle at your silly brothers.

You are loving your crib. You are napping better and going to bed much easier, but you still are waking up a few times a night! I love you so much but PLEASE STOP THAT!! I don’t know if I am getting too old or it’s just that much harder with three, but I am so tired. I am trying to soak in these late night cuddle sessions and time with you because I know they are temporary and one day I will sleep again. I want to be grateful for even the sleepless days. They are precious too.

We love you so much, Jake! I still can’t believe I have three boys. I have a feeling that you three are going to keep me on my toes…forever. I might not be catching up on my sleep anytime soon after all! 😉

Love, Mama

  • Kelly - This little anchor onesie is adorable!!! Seems perfect for him! 🙂 Baby Tiny is super cute!! KellyReplyCancel

  • Mary Ann - Baby Tiny is just so stinking cute…smiley and sweet. He does like his toes, just like his sissy. What a cute family you have. YUP….they will keep you on your toes. I really loved being a mom but being a grandmother is such special kind of fun. It brings back all those days of cuddling, slobbery kisses, and all those things that go with a baby. Now my grandson is 4 1/2 and it is amazing how the time flies by so fast.ReplyCancel
