It is so hard for me to believe that 5 months has come and gone since this beautiful baby has come into the world and joined our family!! WOW - the time is flying by
One of Bump's most favorite activities is having a bath and in the past few weeks has learned to kick to splash and he will also pat at the water some with his hands, too.
He is getting very close to being able to sit up on his own, but still needs this sponge/cushion to support him, for now.
He is grabbing at things and putting them in his mouth to chew chew chew... I know that those teeth must be wanting to come on through sooner than later with the amount of drool produced each day and the gnawing on all of his little toys, or washcloths in the bath!
He can and does roll over now and then... when he has the time ALONE on the floor! Seems as though the big kids all want to lay on the blanket, too and that makes for very little room to practice rolling over!
Oh - that... HAIR!! Bud and Blossom had peach fuzz on their heads for a full year, Bud's 1st haircut was at about 2 years old - and not because mama couldn't bare to part with some kind of beautiful baby curls! Blossom... well, we all know that hair growth is an issue with her! Branch had more hair than either of them, but nothing for length like this little guy has! He has some hairs that are getting long enough that they cannot be "spiked" as they fall right over!! This is a whole new ball game for us!
Bump's face is SO expressive and brings a smile to our faces! Here he was impersonating Elvis as I was massaging his scalp! He enjoys having his head rubbed to be washed or when I just put on lotion... he loves all the pampering drills we do.
Mostly, we just love him to pieces and can not get enough of him - any of us! His round plump cheeks call out to us for kisses, his pudgy toes for tickling, his plump fists for holding... He is a great treasure and we are so thankful for the last 5 months!!
