The Best Pictures From Elijah’s Fifth Month

Sigh. No matter how much I try to convince time to slow down, my baby just keeps getting older. And there’s something about this month, about Eli being five months old that makes him sound positively non-tiny now. I realize he hasn’t been a newborn for some time now, but now he seems so very grown up. Add to that his newfound motor skills including rolling both ways and pivoting while on his tummy and I swear he’s half ready for college.

Okay, so maybe that’s an exaggeration.

All craziness aside, it is my humble opinion that he just keeps getting cuter and cuter. I am completely non-biased so you can trust me. Or you can look for yourself. Be forewarned, he has the best ears in the world.

    In his big boy hat and big boy stroller. Notably, he fussed until I took the hat off about 2 minutes after I took this and had a rash for the rest of the day from wearing it. So yea.
