How We Enjoy Family Music Time

I have always loved music. I played several instruments growing up and listened to music all the time. My husband plays the guitar, and when he was younger, he played with a few different bands.

Isabel loves the maracas and Liam is partial to the recorder. I usually grab a tambourine and my husband leads us in a song. (Okay, so we don’t sound great, but we’re not horrible either.)

Cutest 5-Month-Old Milestones

I love these early stages of babyhood because they are always accomplishing things and meeting new milestones. At just five months old, I’m already seeing so much of Macks’ personality. Gone are the days when all he did was eat, sleep, and poop. Now he’s easily entertained by his sisters and is on much more of a predictable schedule. It’s amazing how in just five short months all of the things our little ones are able to learn and accomplish. Here are five things that Macks is doing at five months old.
