My Campbell boy,  

you are five months old! This month it seems like you grew in so many ways. You're now eating baby food and sleeping without a swaddle! Our big, sweet boy. So many milestones! We went to the Dixon Gardens with your aunt Meg and Teddie to take some photos and you're one photogenic boy!  I rarely take photos with my "big camera" but I sure am glad that it's so easy to snap photos of you constantly with my iphone.  You won't lack photos, sweet boy! Ha! This was a big month for you!  At the beginning of March you had your four month check-up and sister had her two month check-up.  You both got shots and you sympathy cried for Crawford.  You're such a sweet brother!  You were around 13 pounds and I know you've grown so much since them!  A few days after your shots your Honey came and stayed with you and your sister so Mama and Daddy could have a night away to celebrate 4 years of marriage.  You always have the best time with your Honey and this was no exception. :) This month you started eating baby food and it's been our most fun adventure.  You've had squash, pears, and sweet potatoes!  Mama has been making all of your food and it's been so much fun.  Yes, it takes a little bit of time and planning but it's so fun that I get to do this for you!  Plus it's easy on our budget so that's always a plus, too. You've done so well learning how to eat off the spoon and so far you've loved everything you've tasted!  You're still sleeping great and this month we stopped swaddling you.  Mama was so nervous that you wouldn't sleep that first night but you didn't make a peep all night long!  Your personality continues to come out and you get more and more fun each month. This month you did your first "art project" and "painted" an abstract picture during tummy time!  We might have a little artist on our hands.  You're in a size 2 diaper and still in a lot of 0-3 month or 3 month pants.  Your 3 month pajamas still fit great and your 3-6 month jams are a little roomy.  You might be getting bigger, but you're still Mama's tiny boy. :)  We love you so much and watching you grow is the very best thing.  
 

I love you so, 

Mama
