5 months

This has been such an exciting month filled with milestones and "firsts".  You have now experienced your first ever snowfall, your first cold, your first Thanksgiving and your first airplane ride.   You have finally had the opportunity to meet your great-grandparents, along with all of your relatives from Papa's side of the family.
Your personality continues to grow with leaps and bounds.  You are touching, feeling and grabbing absolutely anything that you can get your hands on.  Everything begs to be tasted.  Paper is your favorite treat.  You have found new "voices" this month, and are constantly making noise!
You continue to charm us with your toothy grin.  You have taken on new character traits (which I blame your father for, of course), such as throwing tantrums in grocery stores and biting mom.
You have enjoyed spending time with your dad this month as he has been on holidays, and he has loved playing with you in the mornings when you are at your happiest.  You continue to be very attached to me, and there are still times when only mom will do (and you let everyone else know it by smiling at them from my arms!).
You continue to work your way into our hearts every single day, and I can't tell you how happy it makes me that you are ours forever!
