5 Months!

Dear Harrison,

You are now five months old!  I cannot believe what a difference a month can make. 

You are such a little man now, and we can see the wheels turning in that precious little head of yours.  When you watch your cartoons, you actually laugh at some of their funny moments (child genius maybe?). 

I'm estimating you weigh at least 45 pounds.  At least.  No... maybe 15 - 15 1/2 pounds?  You're in Size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothing. 

You are still exclusively on a Mommy Milk diet - no formula or rice cereal.  We are going to try the "baby-led weaning" approach, which is suppose to start around six months.  More updates on that later.

Your favorite activities include turning over on your side, playing on your playmat, sucking your thumb, snuggling with your favorite Ella the Elephant lovie, and you've discovered your feet. 

You also LOVE to laugh at Mommy and Daddy, and sound like a little penguin or seal when you giggle.  You love to be tickled, fly in air like Superman, and stand up with our assistance. 

We love you!

Sitting up like a big boy in your bumpo seat!

You can actually grasp the toys now and shake them on your own. 

And you love cheering on the Tide!
