Henry: 5 months

I'm a horrible blogger.

Ever since going back to work, I just find myself completely unmotivated to blog. I think it has to do with me being so busy in every aspect of my life, I just can't get my brain to cooperate when it comes to penning a post.

I've said this several times since Henry was born, but my brain is pretty much the consistency of mashed potatoes now.

Those are mashed potatoes, in brain form.

Henry is now 5 months old.

Henry and his cousin, going swimming for the first time! (June 2013)
Time is really flying. He's rolling all over the place, so that's fun. And two weeks ago, out of the blue, he decided to start sleeping through the night. He had been waking once or twice a night to nurse, but all of the sudden he was a sleeper. Not sure how that happened, but I have a feeling that it has something to do with him rolling on his stomach to sleep.

He wants to crawl. Bad. He sometimes whines and fusses when he's on his belly, and I know he wants to move. I'll put my hand behind him, and he'll push off and scoot across the floor. I figure it won't be long until he's crawling. Not sure I'm ready for that, but I am excited for it!

Hi mom, please help me crawl. (June 2013)

Last week he caught his very first cold. It was HORRIBLE. Worst 5 days I've had since his birth... even rougher than that rough newborn phase. A sick baby is heartbreaking.

Day before he really got sick... his temp was starting to run high.

My poor, sick baby.

He had a fever of 102/103 for a couple days, and he was so listless and sad. He also stopped sleeping through the night at that point, and only wanted mommy cuddles. So, we slept in the recliner together. Whatever I could do to help him get through it, I did! The cold turned in to an ear infection. So, he's on antibiotics. He's finally feeling better though. He has a lingering cough, and I'm so ready for that to be gone. It woke him up several times last night. 

Other than that, things are great! He's so much fun, and loves to laugh. Henry is such a happy baby. He loves his daddy so much, and smiles any time Buster walks in the room. This morning, they snoozed a bit in the big bed together:

Today, Buster and I celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary. We are so incredibly fortunate and very thankful for all that we have together. I am one lucky lady!

And on an aside, it was three years ago to the day when I wrote my first blog post, thus beginning my blogging adventure. So much has changed since then, but so much is still the same:

"We knew when we met that we would be married. He is my best friend, and I could not imagine my life without this man. He knows what I'm thinking and feeling. He knows why I laugh and how to make me smile. We sing silly songs and laugh together. Laughing is my favorite hobby."


  1. Happy Anniversary!

    Henry is such a cutie pie :)

  2. Happy Anniversary!!! He is so very cute!!

  3. Happy Anniversary. Reagan wants to crawl so bad too that it makes her hate tummy time more than normal.

  4. Love this update! He is so, so precious.

  5. Happy anniversary! And I think you are LO started sleeping through the night once she started sleeping on her tummy (not that we put her down that way). And your brain becomes steadily less mushy when it can sleep 5,6,7,8 hours without interruption.

  6. Happy Anniversary :-D
