Five Months Already?

Can it really already be December 5? Owen is 5 months old today. When he was born, 5 months seemed so far away. For some reason, a 5 month old baby sounds ages away from a newborn. It's amazing to me that we're already there. Sure enough, Owen is changing before our eyes, and is so incredibly different than the baby we brought home from the hospital. I tell Scott that he's not a baby baby anymore - he's now a growing infant.

Just in the last week, he's really starting to work on rolling over and is getting close in both directions. We're also seeing more of Owen's personality. This picture really says it all. He gets so excited when he's wiggling around on the floor, trying to stand on our laps, or getting ready for a bath. I LOVE his squeals and giggles.

Finally, here's a picture of our whole family at Thanksgiving. Owen had all his grandparents, aunts, and uncles in one place. Scott's Dad made a great dinner, and we found enough chairs for everyone to get a spot at the table. It was fun to spend a weekend with our family and introduce Owen to his Uncle Todd (how crazy does that sound?!). We're thrilled that Ryan and Sara are expecting a baby in April, so Owen will have his first cousin. And, it's a girl - hooray!

Owen is such a cutie! Isn't it amazing how the time goes. I don't like it all that much. But each phase is so fun and watching their little personalities develop is worth the passing days.
