|Sitting big and tall!|
So Ben is 5 months and I think this is my favorite stage so far. His big accomplishment this month is sitting up on his own and he loves the independence. He has hit a new level and maturity and is learning to self-entertain which is awesome for this Mama. We're cloth diapering in an apartment with community washer/dryer so I wash all his diapers in a camper washing machine. I like to let them sun dry which means they have to be done first thing in the morning. This kid is so wonderful and joyful so I can get my work done and then we play the rest of the day.
He is also so much more interactive which is a blast and he seems to be learning something new each day. Today I went in to get him up from his nap and he had turned over onto his stomach! On the subject of sleeping we've finally figured out naps and almost figured out a bedtime routine which makes our lives 1 million times better. (Would you be interested in a post on how we set up sleep routines and taught self soothing? Comment below😊)
We had a lot of adventures this last month including:
|He clearly really enjoyed our hike|
Going camping with my family and one of my best friends. Ben and I had to drive 4 hours each way for the trip and he traveled like a trooper!
|4 generations of Green Men|
We also saw my in-laws and Ben loved getting to sing and read and spend time with Grandma Green! We got to have dinner with Tim's Grandpa as well and got this great picture!

Daddy's favorites: Making Ben laugh, playing with Ben in the morning, head-butting Ben
Mommy's favorites: when he smiles at anyone, when he's sleeping, and watching Ben and Daddy play together.
