J is 5 months old. It is official.
Today, we went to the new moms network and learned all about infant massage. J was quite taken with it, and it was fun to give baby-kins a massage. He seemed to enjoy it hugely, and it relaxed him for naptime. He is sleeping against me in his Snugli just now. I think he had some bad dreams earlier; he awoke with quite a start and just started screaming. Seems all better now.
I am reflecting on how much my little boy has changed since he was born. I thought a "Then and Now" moment might be in order. So here we go:
J at birth:
J at one month old:
J at two months old:
J at three months old:
J at four months old:
J at five months old:
As a point of reference, here is J in mid-May, wearing the same outfit he is wearing at five months old:
How do they get so big so soon? I just can't believe how much he has grown and changed already.
