5 Months with Baby

5 Months with Baby Dear Dashiell, Little man, you want to GO! You are so enthusiastic about movement, pulling yourself to standing on anything you can get your hands on (and often toppling right back over). You scoot yourself around the house flat on your belly, and it's amazing how much traction you get and how fast you can escape from me. You and Finn have become partners in crime, giggling over secret jokes that make no sense to anyone but you, rolling around on the floor together in delight.
