5 Months Old

How could 5 months have passed so quickly?  I can hardly believe it.  Our baby boy is busier than ever this month and we are loving it.  We will go back to the doctor next month for a 6 month check up.  Here is a list of all of the things our little man is up to this month:

1. Rolling all over the place.  He has quickly figured out that rolling will get him from place to place and in a matter of seconds he can move from one side of the room to the other!
2.  Rocking on his hands and knees.  I don't know if we are on the fast track to crawling, but Austin has learned how to get up on his knees, hold his body up with his arms and rock back and forth!
3.  He found his FEET!!
4.  Chews on his hands and all toys!  Everything goes right in the mouth!
5.  Sucks his thumb.  This is the sign that we have a sleepy baby.
6.  Sleeping in his crib at night from about 7 or 8pm to 7am!  Currently he sleeps on his side, sucking his thumb, with the other hand over his face or on his tummy.
7.  Following everything with his eyes (tracking).
8.  He is taking a short morning nap and a 2-3 hour afternoon nap.
9.  Responding to his name!
10.  "Talking" a lot!
11.  Laughing and smiling.
12. Making friends with Tanner!
13. Eating rice cereal at night and drinking 5-6 (5oz) bottles a day.  (We are on all formula now.  Both baby and mommy's body were telling us it was time.  I'm proud to say we breast fed for 4 months!  It was a great experience.)
14. Wearing 3-6 month clothes.
15. Wearing size 2 diapers.
16. Working on sitting with assistance.
17. He loves jumping in his jumper/activity seat.

This month Mommy finished school and started summer vacation, Daddy started summer school and a new job, you went swimming for the first time and loved it, PeePaw came to visit, we celebrated Father's Day, Daymi came to visit, you hung out with your Uncle Grant who just LOVES you, we played a lot and you made us all laugh a lot!

I count my blessings every single day and thank God for this amazing gift.  Being a parent is the BEST experience in the world and I feel like my heart could burst with all the love I have for our baby boy. 
Happy 5 Months Austin Todd!!
So happy playing in his high chair!

We do a lot of rolling around on the floor.
I can hold the bottle now!

This is the newest sleeping position...on his side, sucking his thumb, one hand over the head.

He has figured out how to get up on his knees and rock!

Play Time!

Checking out my friends!

So many friends to play with!

My new keys!

Chubby cheeks!
