I can't believe that almost a year ago your Baba and I were breaking the news of your impending arrival to your sister and brothers. You've grown so much since then, sweet boy!
These days you are on the move. You are happy to play with whatever you're given, but two minutes later you're discovering what lies on the other side of the room. I love how you nonchalantly flip from belly to back and back to belly. You enjoy rolling more than the rest of your siblings, and you've gotten quite skilled at it. Here you are in the space of ten seconds, eagerly investigating what was at the edge of the blanket.
This month you got your first tooth, and I can feel another close behind. Your hair is getting a little thicker, too. You're almost able to sit by yourself, but you're likely to get distracted by whatever catches your eye and fall forward in an attempt to grab it.
Where will you fit in this loud, raucous bunch of brothers (and sister)? Right now we can't tell. You like to watch the action from the safety of Mama's arms, but you sure do love M and Z. I know that T can be a bit rough sometimes. He's still learning, so you'll have to be patient with him.
You celebrate your half-birthday in a popular month--Z, T and I all have birthdays in June. Maybe when you get a little older we can throw a little celebration for you into the mix so you don't get lonely in December.
Here's a little flashback so you can see how far you've come.
We love you, Baby G!
