5 Months

Today is Will's five month birthday! He weighs 17.8 pounds and is about 27 inches long. It's hard for us to measure him ourselves so we think that's close. He got to start eating cereal this week and he has done really well. Next week we move on to some real foods, I'm thinking sweet potatoes to start. I'm going to be making most of his baby food to save money so hopefully that will work out well. My cousin has done this with her girls and she says it's very easy and she told me where to find the recipes.

This is where Will eats, and also where he plays the drums on tupperware while I cook!

At five months, Will is starting to scoot around on his tummy but it takes him about 5 minutes to move two feet. Still, it's a start, and he can scoot around in circles on his tummy pretty quickly. He's sitting up pretty well with help from the bumbo or one of us and can even do it on his own for a little bit.

His sleeping for the last week has been excellent! He's going from 9 until about 5:30, when he eats and then goes back to sleep until about 8. This morning he slept until 6:20 and then slept again until 9:40, apparently he was tired today! He likes to be sung to sleep at night so we go sit in the dark and sing hymns until he falls asleep. This means that he definitely doesn't go to sleep on his own, but maybe someday we'll get there.

The boys first thing in the morning.

I tried to get him to smile for a pic tonight but it was close to bedtime so no smiles! Happy 5 months!!
