5 months old!

Nolen, I literally feel as though we have known you forever. It's getting harder and harder to remember life BN (before Nolen.) But just think, 5 short months ago you were still in mommies belly. Crazy!Now I know I've probably said this about every month so far, and I'll probably say is about every month in the future, but I really think this is the best age, your so stinkin' fun!

Here's what you've been up to this month...

• You love to flip and flop all over the place. You go from your belly to your back, from your back to your belly. You love to flip and always looked very pleased with yourself when you realize what you've done.

• You eating! We started with rice cereal (not your favorite.) We've since added in bananas, apples, pears, sweet potatoes, and baby oatmeal. Mommy had been feeding you a whole little bowl of food until she read that a baby your age is only suppose to eat a few teaspoons. Oops!

• We're still exclusively breast feeding (besides your food for dinner) and going on 5 months strong. Mommy thought it would be a good time to stop when she started the new school year, but the new school year is just around the corner. Drag out the pump again, Mommies going to keep breastfeeding!!! Why mess with a good thing?

• You had your longest stretch of sleep yet! You slept from 11pm- 5am without waking! Mommy was awake the whole time though, she had to keep checking on you to make sure you were still breathing. Crazy Mommy, get some sleep.

• You laugh, all the time. Not just little giggles, but big, full belly laughs. Mommy and Daddy are completed addicted to your laugh and will do anything (and we mean anything) to hear it again and again!

• Still not a fan of your car seat or long car rides. When you start to get fussy mommy and daddy have to start singing. Your favorite songs of the moment are 'Skid-a-marinky-dinky-dink Skid-a-marinky-do' and 'The Wheels on the Bus.' They both stop your tears, but must be sang over, and over again until we reach our destination.

• Your now wearing anywhere from a 3-6 month- 6-9 month in clothing. Still size 2 diapers and size 2 shoes.

• You get SO excited when you see your daddy! He's gone at work a lot of the day so it's treat when you get to see him. Everything is good in the world again when your with your Daddy.

• You love blowing raspberries. Once you get started there's no stopping you, you just keep going, and going, and going...brrrrrrrrrrr (slobber, slobber.)

• You went in a park swing for the first time. Loved!

• Your our little social butterfly. Everywhere we go you flash that 2-toothed smile. People are always telling you just how cute you are.

• You've joined Mommy on 2 of her recent teaching interviews. You knew exactly how to turn on the charm for all the ladies.

• Your favorite toys are Monkey, your soft colors book, Elephant, and Sophie the giraffe.

• You're just such a loveable, sweet, adorable little man. We love you SO MUCH. We're so grateful to have you in our lives!
