5 Months

Elijah is five months old today. Several people have asked me how that happened, and I honestly don't know. Seems like only a few weeks ago that I gave birth. I met a girl today who is pregnant and when she saw my car seat, she said "oh, you have a new one too." Then she looked inside and said, "oh, he's not new, he's a big boy." I suddenly saw him through her eyes and realized that he really is so big already. I'm treasuring each moment of this baby stage, but it's still going much too quickly for me. At five months. Elijah is getting better and better at rolling over and he loves to play with his toys. He reaches for everything that comes into his line of vision, so it's about time for me to put away my long earrings for a while. His smile, his dimples, they melt my heart every day. He's still kind of lacking in the hair department, but I think it just makes him look cuter. His eyes are still such a pretty blue that I'm starting to wonder if they will stay. I always joked that since Matt and I both have brown eyes, the only way we could have a blue eyed child was through adoption. And now I have two handsome blue-eyed boys, one by adoption and one by birth. Sometimes the blessing is overwhelming. I don't think I will ever get over how amazing it is that I have two children. I love them to pieces.
 I have a really hard time getting Elijah to smile when I'm taking pictures, so lately, Ben has been standing behind my shoulder and Elijah just lights up. He loves his big brother!

 I think this was the first time Elijah noticed his toes. He's been fascinated ever since!

 Mmmmm! Toes!

 Ben is getting him interested in cars early
Love these eyes!
