Baby Taco: 5 months today!
My dear sweet Taco, time is flying! Sometimes I don’t even remember you being as small as you were. How you didn’t always used to smile at me and your dad. How you didn’t always roll over, laugh, grab at my hair. It seems like ages ago that at one point you were so small your sternum would stick out when you breathed! It is so true when they say if you blink you can miss it.
I miss the days where I could take you out of your crib and you would spend most of the day asleep on my chest. I never wanted to move because you looked so perfect. You fit like a glove on top of me. Now you like to move a lot! You are just starting to tuck your knees in and slowly move around. You also like to roll to your tummy for nap time. Speaking of nap time, sleeping is probably one of your favorite things. You love your crib and pjs and having a big bottle before bed.
You recently started laughing. It is one of the best sounds your dad and I have ever heard! You like it when I shake my head so my hair flys everywhere and you love laughing when I give you kisses.
You also started eating rice cereal. It is a messy endeavor but you love sitting in the highchair and opening your mouth. You like to spit it all over your face and get it everywhere!
There will be a time where you will look back and read about this. All the stress, all the joy and all the tears we have shed for you. I want you to know that as you continue to grow and learn, your dad and I are so proud of the little person you are becoming. Thank you Taco for your continued patience while your dad I learn what being a parent is all about. And as always, we love you more than we could ever say.
