5 months!

Liam turned 5 months this week. Where has the time gone?

When I sat him on the floor to take his 5 month picture, Brian asked why I didn't just sit him in the chair. I want to show everyone what a great job he is doing sitting up. He does so many other things to remind me he is growing. The other night during bath time, he grabed the side of the tub and pulled himself up to standing. I AM NOT READY FOR THAT! Boy needs to slow down.

He started rolling from him belly to his back at 3 months. Recently he has started rolling from his back to his belly. When he does this, he realizes he doesn't like to be on his belly and immediately begins screaming. Apparently he has forgotten how to roll himself back over. On the rare occation we can keep him happy on his belly, he has began moving. No, he is not crawling yet. But he is dangerously close. He reaches forward and pulls with his arms, he also pushes off with his legs. The only thing keeping my sanity together right now is he has not figured out how to coordinate the two yet.

Just for fun, here is a picture of tummy time at one month.

In honor of World Breastfeeding Week I thought I would write about the dairy farm. Yes, my boobs are literally their own dairy farm. Apart from being on demand 24 hours a day, it has became a joke between Brian and I; when I am pumping, Bessie is in business.

I am very fortunate to have the ability for feed my child, but there is no end to my supply. I have been freezing every last ounce that comes out in preparation for Liam to begin daycare.

Today I heard an inspiring story at Liam's playgroup. The story was about a baby who was born addicted to crack and was adopted. This baby was only meeting developmental milestones because of the donated breastmilk he was receiving. If I can produce enough to keep Liam on breastmilk while in daycare, I think I am going to look into donating the excess
