5 months...

Having a 5 month old baby is crazy to me! Sometimes I think he's got to be a year old already and other days, I just can't imagine him being any older than a few days or weeks. But he is growing and changing and is as cute as ever :)

This is one of a few "5 months" pictures that I got. He was not as cooperative this month. I have a feeling it will only get harder to keep him still and looking at me :)

I don't know if you can see them, but those little white things on his bottom gums are teeth! He is constantly feeling them with his tongue and I'm sad/happy to say that few more teeth are working their way out.

We started giving Benjamin rice cereal every few days. We have no consistent schedule with it yet and did it just to get him started on it for when we give him solids. He has a lot of fun and even fusses for more, which is quite humorous to me. We probably give him 2 teaspoons of cereal every three nights or so. It's something new and fun!
I love this little man so much and I'm so glad that I get to be his momma!

hey girl,

welcome to one of my favorite stages of baby life: that 5-12 month's got it's challenges, but it's sweet, too.

I love watching them explore everything, smile and giggle, and still love cuddling before they can run and pull away :) ENJOY EVERYDAY
