Five Months

Well Mommy is proud of herself she is all caught up on documenting your month-to-month posts on the blog! In two days you will turn six months old and you will be half-way to one year old when you will not be considered a baby anymore. Don't worry you will always be my baby Elijah! The first two weeks of August were busy with a few weekend trips before we would hunker down for the semester. Daddy started classes the fourth week of August so we wanted to enjoy the last few days of summer and we sure did!

Reasons why I adore my son and milestones I want to remember:
~1st sit-up while playing with Momma
~Consistently rolling over from front-to-back and more leaving you alone even for a second!
~Met Mrs. Hess one of Daddy's special high school teachers
~Spent a great weekend staying with the Hesch's at Liberty University the college where Mommy and Daddy met 5 years ago
~Mommy started taking care of another little boy on Monday and Fridays and you are learning how to share:)
~Daddy started his new job which the Lord graciously provided for our family...we are SO proud of you Daddy!!!

Stats from your doctor's appnt:
We got to skip another month yay! But we do know your weight and height from another appnt that we had this month.
Weight- 17 lbs and 10 oz.
Length- 27 inches

This month Mommy has loved watching you and Daddy really form a solid relationship. You LOVE everything about him and want to be with him in his arms whenever he is home. Because of this new job he is able to spend quite a few hours with you each night, and I treasure the relationship you are cultivating with your Daddy. I pray that God will draw your hearts together as Daddy strives to teach you how to be a man of God. I know you are young but I hope you learn quickly how much your Daddy sacrifices for you. He wakes up early to complete schoolwork, works long hours, and goes to school on his "day off" so you and me can stay at home. I know he does all of this joyfully but I hope we will continue to look for ways to show our appreciation! Your smiles and infectious laughter sure make your Daddy's day so keep those coming. We love you Elijah Daniel and are so excited to see how God will use you one day to impact His kingdom. Keep smiling, loving people, and teaching Mommy and Daddy how to follow after Jesus every day.
