I am well aware that 5 months comes after 4 months... but somehow Vince turning 5 months really snuck up on me! My thinking is a little bit weird, but I freaked out when I realized he was 5 months because 5 months is almost 6 months, and 6 months is practically a year! Perhaps I sound ridiculous. Though you have to agree that time will just go faster and faster. I am trying to soak up all of the precious moments that come with having a little one.
At the beginning of this past month Vince started sticking one leg up in the air. He did it all the time: Laying on the floor, nursing, you name it!
A week or so after he hit 4 months we started him on rice cereal. He did pretty well with it but he wasn't all that crazy about it either.
His balance is still lacking... but he's working on his sitting skills. He leans forward really far and ends up squished in half. There is no way that he could be comfortable, but he seems to like the new views that come with sitting.
Although most of his time is still spent on his belly. He loves his tummy time.
Halfway through the month he started lifting BOTH legs in the air.
If he was on the floor, you could bet that he'd shoot his legs right up.
Next came grabbing his feet.
And of course, trying to stick them in his mouth.
Vince is predominately a diaper baby. However, with the chilly weather we have been trying to get him dressed so he doesn't get cold. Sometimes the clothes don't make it all the way back off though!
Towards the end of his 4th month he started rolling onto his side. He reaches out and grabs things, inches his way all around and tries to find voices when people talk.
Today, to celebrate his 5 months on earth, we gave him something other than rice cereal-- Sweet Potatoes! He LOVED them (at least compared to rice cereal). When I brought the spoon toward him he would actually take his fingers out of his mouth and open wide.
We love our little boy.
