Five months

Losing all 1100+ of my photos taught me that procrastination is not a trait I like about myself! You are actually going to be six months this coming week, so your five month post is long over due. I had all your five month pictures saved in my phone. Last weekend I needed my iphone fixed. So I took the darn phone to the apple store. The technician obviously didn't know what he was doing and erased all my photos! All the past 3 months of you and your brothers life was on there! All.of.them.

Two lessons learned here:
1. Don't trust the apple people just because they work for apple and are supposed to be "techy."
2. Don't procrastinate.

So I will just be posting random pictures that I took throughout the month. Luckily family and friends have been so kind to send me back the pictures that I have sent to them. I wasn't a very happy mommy, needless to say.

Well little guy,
You've grown up quite a bit this month. Not that I'm not happy that your growing and getting bigger. I just don't want you to get big too fast. And it seems as if that is what you are doing. All the fun new things that you learn and do everyday make you getting bigger a little less painful. This month you started working out your biceps and pushed yourself up off the floor. Hello, crawling? Were not quite ready for our five month old to crawl! But I suppose your brother is far too interesting of a guy for you to just sit there and stare at him, so you've got to go, I get it. You weighed in at 16 pounds 15 ounces at your last doctors visit. Your baby rolls are now uncountable. Even your little wrist has a roll! This month you did big things, like sitting in your bumbo for the first time. Since you had that mastered right from the get go, you decided to buck out of it, leaving us no choice but to have one hand on you at all times. One things leads to the next, so after bumbo seats comes trying out rice cereal, so that is just what we did. We only gave it to you a couple times this month since you are still young. I don't know if you are quite into it yet. Most of it came out and got smeared all over the place.  It did make for a good photo op. These things take time. You'll get it soon enough, and then before I know it you will be eating pancakes and eggs.
Your cheeks are just too huge not to kiss a thousand and five times a day. Even Jaxson loves to snuggle on you! You have the sweetest smile.You are quite the little chatter box too.
All kinds of exciting baby things are happening over here.
Slow down baby,
Slow down.

Here are a few photos from your fifth month of life.

Just look at those rolls:)

We love you Mattix,



  1. Aaaahhhhh... That's the kinda stuff that happens to me, so I understand your frustrations! On the bright side, it seems like you are having a ton of fun with your boys. I love the pictures! :)

  2. i love reading your letters to mattix... LOVE x

  3. I love those rolls!! Those cheeks are truly made for kissing a hundred times a day and at least five at a time;)
