Five-months old!

Yesterday, September 17, marked Josiah’s five-month birthday. Wow!

Among other things, Josiah can now sit by himself for extended periods of time and loves laying on his tummy a lot more than he used too. He’s even trying to move around while on his tummy — he should be crawling in no time! Rolling over is still tough, but he can do it from his back to his front pretty well. Getting back on his back is proving to be much more difficult, but with a little help from Mom or Dad, he can do it great!

We got to visit with our friend Erica on Saturday. (Thanks for coming over for dinner, Erica!) We had a wonderful time catching up and hanging out. Here’s a photo of Josiah and Erica…

Indy continues to bear the fact that someone in the house gets more attention than her now, but she’s being very patient with us. At least she has her toys…

We can’t believe there’s only one month to go before Josiah is six-months. Time is flying by way to quickly.

Go here for a few more photos of the five-month-old Josiah — including him sitting up all by himself!

Funny photos at almost five-months...

I just thought you might want to see some funny photos that Julianna and I took of Josiah last night. Josiah will be five-months old in two days! As you will see, he is still quite the character…

Josiah thinks this is very funny!

Farewell...

Grammy Sandy and “Pop-a-wheely” left yesterday to go back to their regular lives. It was sad to see them go — especially since it was it was Grandparent’s Day. (Even though we didn’t realize it until after the grandparents had gone.) The week was a fun one and we’re glad that both my mom and dad got to come visit.

During the week, Josiah developed some new behaviors. He really knows how to pour on the “whoa is me” dramatics when he wants something from someone — it’s pretty funny to witness. He also gets very upset when he’s really hungry or tired now too (something he had never really done before). His favorite place has always been outside and now he really lets us know when he wants to be taken there. This is going to be quite a challenge in the colder months of winter.

Much needed update...

Josiah is almost five-month old now. He is so smart too. He can scream really loud and grab things. He loves pulling hair and feeling new textures. He even tries to say words once in a while. He’s almost sitting up on his own and he’s just about rolled over too.

Lately, he’s been sitting at his high chair and eating cereal! He’s not too bad at it either. Here’s a picture.

Grammy Sandy’s out for a visit this week (Grampa comes out on Friday). It has been very fun so far. Here is a picture of the happy family out for a stroll in the park. (We’re looking forward to the rest of the week!)

There will be plenty more photos when the week is over.
