5 months

My boy is 5 months today!

Here's what he's up to these days:
*weighed 15 lbs, 11 oz. at dr. appt. a couple of weeks ago
*needs paci to fall asleep, but when it falls out he resorts to sucking his thumb (adorable!)
*sleeps 12 hours about 3 out of 5 nights... sometimes he just needs his paci put back in
*started sleeping in Ellie's room about a month ago (naps and nighttime...what a breeze, what was I worried about?!)

*like his sister, he wants to be left alone to sleep; will not be rocked to sleep, but will easily sleep in the Ergo or the carseat
*eats on 3 hr(ish) schedule around 7 am, 10 am, 1 pm, 4 pm, 7 pm
*loves to laugh, especially when he sees his sister
*rolls over the minute I put him on his back
*will stay on his tummy for ages

*does a 360 turn while on his tummy, putting his legs up by his tummy like he wants to crawl (this is so much sooner than Ellie)
*reaches for everything, especially my hair!
*found his feet
*everything goes straight to his mouth
*seems to have big hands and long arms (piano player?)
*figured out how to bounce in the Johnny Jump-up 2 nights ago
*loves peek-a-boo
*likes his bath, figured out how to splash
*has started to vocalize more... the funniest one is when he sounds like Fat Albert, like a low fake laugh

*loves the swing, but has to be strapped in or else he'll try to roll over while he's in it!
*seems to favor his left side; he is always rolling to the left and reaching with his left hand (LOVES the yellow kitty in the swing, doesn't even realize the red doggy is there)
*first time camping last weekend
*first time in a boat

Happy, happy baby!  We are SO blessed!
