5 months with Townesy

another month has flown by 
and little Townesy, you have got me 
you are just about the sweetest thing i ever did see
you really are a good baby 
meaning, you are happy
you sleep good
you eat good
and you are a definite charmer

and you put up with your big brothers silly antics

you seem to have a calmer personality than your brother
you are pretty content to hang out in my lap and watch whatever he is doing 
you always smile a big smile when you see yourself or whoever is holding you in the mirror

you can sit up if you're hanging on tight to something
like my leg

you don't like to sit against anything though
you arch your back until you work yourself to your stomach or laying on your back

you are a big snuggler
and will lay your face against mine (or your Mamaw Jo, she gets a lot of snuggles) for the longest time
it might be my favorite thing
and sometimes you hum a little tune of contentment
we do this often throughout our day

you seem to make fast friends, as everyone gets a smile from you

you are easy to make laugh
and squint your eyes tight and let out a little chuckle

and you are much better about riding in the car!!! hooray! 
although, you'd prefer to take over the steering wheel

you keep your pointer and middle fingers in your mouth all of the time
and can take your own pacifier in and out of your mouth
you love your exersaucer and seem quite entertained by the animals and noises
sometimes i will walk through the room and catch you grinning at me 
if someone else is holding you, you are probably staring me down
we're kind of inseparable, you and me.
i'd like to keep it that way, knowing it won't last forever.

i am so excited about celebrating your first Christmas with you
although you won't have any idea what's going on
your presence in our lives brings incredible joy
your smile brings cheer
your snuggles bring comfort
your curiosity brings excitement
your dependence brings purpose
your sleep brings peace

we love you, little Rooskie 
you are a source of great delight!
