Happy fifth month, my bunso, my love!
As you approached this monthsary, you have already started rolling over, albeit with much difficulty, presumably because you find your body a little heavy hehehe. You always manage to turn over your hips and legs, and your head, but you have not been always successful with bringing your shoulders with them. On a few occasions, I have found you in funny positions where you just fell asleep sideways because you got tired from trying to turn over. At least you are trying, my love, that’s what’s important. I hope you keep up with being positive that you can always do things only if you try hard enough as you grow older. However, now we really cannot leave you alone like we used to for fear of you toppling over.
You also now grab a lot of things that are within your reach — your pillow, soft toys in your crib, burp cloths, bibs, and anything else that you get your little hands on. We have to be more watchful now more than ever that you don’t hurt yourself or put things over your face.
You always seem to have a ready smile for everyone, including strangers. It is such as infectious smile that lights up our days. You even have a special one for your daddy. However, we did notice that ever since we got back from getting your ears pierced that you started to be a little more reserved than usual. We’re not really sure why. But please go back to giving us that wonderful, sweet smile, baby. We all have been missing that.
We love you so much, anak. Your sister, especially, loves talking and playing with you. She is always hugging and kissing you. Sometimes, we chide her a little when she wouldn’t let you be if you are asleep. Mommy is beyond happy that she knows that you will always have someone looking after you even if mommy and daddy are not there. I am a relieved that you will have each other’s back forever.
