5 months

A week ago, Jonas turned five months old. Our little guy had his first doctor appointment today that wasn't a well-baby check-up...he's got an upper respiratory infection and pink eye. Poor thing can't breathe and his eyes look horrible. We love this stage that Jonas is in. His personality is more and more evident all the time. A few things about him this month:
- he weighs 13.2 lbs.
- about 25 inches long
- he's this close to sitting up unsupported
- rice cereal is now a part of our nightly routine
- loves to "ride the horsey" which is the arm of the chair in our living room
- reaches for specific things like toys or his paci
You may notice that Jonas didn't gain weight between his 4th and 5th month. So, we are now in the process of trying to bulk him up a little more. I think it is working since he weighed a little more at the doctor today. Enjoy these pictures...

the first night, we fed Jonas in his bouncy. We quickly decided that the high chair needed to be put together.

are you kidding me?

It's been one whole month since this dear blog has been updated! This has been a whirlwind month...let's recap...

1. We visited the South Plains Fair...this is a big deal in Lubbock! I sure did enjoy me some yummy fair food...on a stick.

2. I'm sure I've mentioned before how much I love fall. Well, it has arrived and the other weekend we went to the Pumpkin Festival.

3. Jonas got a visit from his Grandpa and Grandma Snow.

4. Jonas and I survived our very first night completely alone as Paul went out of town for work.

5. I am crazy busy at work which leads to being really tired at home.

6. Did I mention how much I love fall? cinnamon spice candles, cool evenings, long sleeved shirts, warm drinks...
