5 months!

Luke turned 5 months yesterday! Each month he shows so much growth and learns so many new things, while also trying to give us a run for our money. He has started to laugh a full big belly laugh this month which we find absolutely hilarious and heartwarming at the same time. Here is the newest monthly chair picture accompanied by his 1 month picture for growth comparison:

He's still working at sitting up on his own, although he can do it by propping himself up for a decent amount of time now.

He still tends to tilt for the first few tries each time.

He's (sort of) enjoying tummy time more. He still would rather be standing. My guess is that he might not be a crawling type of kid. He might just go straight to walking.

Those bottom two teeth still aren't in and I was very disheartened to learn it could take as much as a month for them to come in. This picture shows the slightly swollen gums and a lot of spit.

He loves to be around Rosco. We actually saw Rosco come over to him the other day to sniff him and give him some love, but I didn't make it to the camera fast enough to catch it. I'll post a picture of how Luke likes to play with Rosco...essentially just grabbing his fur. He learn some day.

I love this kid!
