The five month milestone....

I realize that most new parents don't really see 5 months as a "milestone".  Usually you get baby photos taken around 3 months or 6 months.  You don't often hear about people celebrating the 5 months milestone.  I celebrate it.  I may not throw a big party or send out 5-month-old announcements, but I celebrate it to myself.  I've been waiting patiently for Liam to get to this age, while trying my best to soak up the time I had with him previous to it.  I'm not sure why this is such a milestone to me, except that it is the first opportunity I get to compare my boys.  I know that it isn't always healthy to compare your children, but I mean more in a physical sense.....maybe I even mean that I'm comparing my experiences with them.  This is the first picture we saw of Miles.  We were blessed to receive many pictures of him pre-5 months after we brought him home, but this is the photo is the first time I laid eyes on him.  I had to take one of Liam to compare.
There's really no comparison when you think about it.  These two boys couldn't be more different - in looks and personality.  The amazing thing to me - the thing that leaves me completely in awe - is how each of them can fit into our family so perfectly.  Each is an intrinsic part of us.  And I can't help but dream that for the rest of their lives they will fit perfectly together, and perfectly with us.

On a side note...I really wish I had access to the little red throne for Liam's 5 month picture. :)

This is a cool idea.

The throne chair is so awesome. Every child should be a little prince.
