5 months old

I cannot believe how much baby love has changed in the past month! He is such a big boy these days. He has started so many new things and is just too cool.
So here it is...
This month started off a little rocky. He was a sick little fella with RSV and pneumonia. Once he was finished with his antibiotics and breathing treatments he developed thrush from the med. BUT he was in high spirits throughout it all.At our last appointment he weighed 16.9. He's in size 3 diapers and wearing size 6mth, 9mth and 6-12 mth clothes. (Big Boy)We started this month out trying cereal daily. He hated it for the first two weeks so we quit for a little while then started back last week and he likes it. He went from eating solids once a day to eating 3 times a day!!!! I'm serious when I say he LOVES to eat! He's tried bananas, apples, pears, carrots, squash, sweet potatoes, green beans and peas. His favorites are apples and squash. He eats cereal at breakfast, a fruit or veg at lunch and fruit or veg and cereal at night.
He normally sleep at least 10 hours at night but this past week he has been waking up to eat. He just can't seem to get enough!
He is more and more alert everyday. (Some call it nosy) He watches all of the kids at daycare like he's just taking it all in. He especially likes to watch his silly big cousins, Turner and Cole. He also likes to play with Roxie. When we're on the floor and she comes up to us he gets so tickled and pulls her ears or pokes her eyes and she just sits there and takes it.He went to his first softball game, Jordan's (only lasted about 30 mins but got to see lots of people), first soccer game, Turner and Payton's (made it the whole hour) and went to church nursery for the first time (as much as I hated it he just wants to "talk" so I thought it was time).
Speaking of talking. I don't know if he just likes the sound of his voice or what but he LOVES to talk too. Most mornings when he wakes up he just lays in his crib and talks for quite a while before he starts to fuss for us to get him. He still is happiest in the mornings.
His favorite "toy" is def his Jumperoo. He gets so excited when he gets going. Once this week he fell asleep in it but was still jumping!
He is a rolling machine, rolling all over the place!
He loves to give his Mama sugar and of course she thinks it's the BEST sugar ever!
Bath time is still his fav. He started splashing this month. By the end of bath time I'm usually soaked. He'll kick his feet, splash me and just giggle.
Lastly, he is REACHING for his Mama!! THIS really melts my heart :)
Sweet boy,
You are growing like a weed and change so much each day. You bring so much joy to our lives and make us so happy. We are so blessed to have been chosen to be YOUR parents. Just when we think we can't love you more you melt our hearts. We can't wait to see what next month brings.
Your crazy Mama
