Yep, I'm Adorable!

It's my five month birthday photo shoot!!!

I'm getting pretty good at this! Actually, I smile all the time...momma caught this one on the first try!

Momma LOVES my chubby leggies!!! She tickles me and kisses me and squeezes me! Actually, it's kind of embarrassing, but she just loves my thigh and ankle rolls! And all this comes just from my milk! Momma says all the other kids started eating cereal and food by now, but I just love snuggling with my momma and my bottle! Maybe next month I'll try something new!

Sister insisted I have some pictures without my hat!

As for my usual super pleasant disposition, that pretty much hasn't changed. One thing has been bugging me, though. Ok, two. Can you see them?

How about now?

They haven't broken through, yet. I wish they would. Momma wishes they would. Daddy wishes they would. Brothers wish they would. Ok, everybody wishes they would! This is how I feel about teething:

But on a happier note, here is me live action trying to learn how to belly laugh. I talk talk talk and sing sing sing, but I just haven't figured out how to laugh yet. I'm a good tryer, though!

It's ok if you think I'm the cutest Josiah ever. Momma tells me that all the time!

Harford County---Celebrating Chesapeake Bay and Maritime Heritage

Some of Harford County's most beautiful places to visit also highlight the unique and lasting attribute that water brings to the county I call home.

Gun Powder State Park

This is one of the greatest places to enjoy water in Harford county if you want to spend the day at the beach. Not only do you get to swim, but you can also go kayaking, fishing, and picnic-ing. You can also go hiking. though I've never been hiking here, my brother has, and he liked it alot!

Kilgore Falls

As you can see, this is a real waterfall! It's such a beautiful area, it was even featured in the Disney movie "Tuck Everlasting". You can hike around the falls, and some people even jump off the top! I don't feel like trying it, but I do love jumping off the smaller rocks!

Havre de Grace Maritime Museum

There's not only fun outings, but alot of historic water places to visit. At the Maritime Museum you can find out about the unique history of waterman in our area. You can also learn about John Smith, the famous explorer, and his exploration of Maryland and the Chesapeake Bay. There is also a boat building school, which is pretty cool.

The Skipjack Martha Lewis

This is one of the most unique museums in Harford County because it is the only one that floats!!! I've never been, but I sure would like to! This would be a great way to experience firsthand what it would have been like to be a Chesapeake waterman! The Marth Lewis offers public and private tours and cruises depending on the season.

These are only some of the unique places we are able to enjoy here in Harford that highlights water and its history in our county!

Four month smiles and fun!

In loveWith this little guy!!

Over the past month, Josiah has found his fingers, voice, and tongue! Get a load of this!

So super cute, huh?

And this one!

And one more for laughs!! (ours, not his)

These are a great representation of Josiah's personality! He is THE MOST pleasant baby I have ever met, and is just a complete little armful of love! Four months later, and we are still thanking the heavens for this wonderful blessing of joy in our home! Every night before I lay him to bed, I whisper into his fuzzy baby hair "Thank you for coming, Josiah. We sure needed you!"

Especially me.
