5 Months!!!

William is officially 5 months old right now!

In my opinion, this is when it starts getting fun.

Will literally smiles at me ALL DAY LONG!

He has rolled over a few times.

He twists around in a complete circle when he plays on the floor.

He's just beginning (in the last week) to eat baby food.

So far: rice cereal, bananas and sweet potatoes are a hit.

Will sleeps through the night most of the time (just since we've started food).

If he does wake up, it's only once.

Wears a size 4 diaper

Wears size 12 month clothes

Weighs around 19 lbs.

He loves his playmat on the floor.

Tolerates his exersaucer for about 10 minutes at a time.

Loves to fall alsleep in the car or in his stroller on a walk.

Doesn't take very good naps.

He's not so sure about baths...he doesn't smile and doesn't cry...he's very serious.

If you lay him on a pillow he will pull himself to a sitting position by using his abdominal muscles, then he falls over...I've never had a baby do that before. It's rather amazing to watch him sit up on his own. I've got to get it on video.

P.S. Christian was looking at this post while I was working on it and he said "Why is Will wearing a girl bib?" Ha..I didn't even notice. I think the whole drawer we have in the kitchen is filled with girl bibs. I guess I need to change that :)

I would agree, you are getting some good arm strength, Judy! Size 4, 19 lbs and size 12 month clothes! WOW! What a cutie-pie! Glad he is sleeping through the night great!
