5 Months Old!

I totally forgot to write on Andrew's 5 month birthday- oops.  So here it is, a little late.

5 months.  I can't even believe it.  My little man is so big!  About 16 lbs. and wearing 3-6 month clothing.

Andrew is sleeping through the night!  And I mean all the way though the night!  We usually start the bedtime routine (nurse, bath, bedtime songs, sleep) around 6:30-7:00pm and he's up for the day around 7:00am, sometimes even later.  It is amazing.

He is definitely learning to crawl.  He can do what I call the inchworm crawl, and he can actually make it pretty far.  His favorite incentive (to crawl) is our cable remote.  Probably because it's black with white buttons, and it's a nice contrast from our light carpet.

Andrew has mastered his sound machine.  We keep it in the corner of his crib and use the rain sound effect.  When he wakes up he immediately crawls over to it and messes with the volume dial and changes the sound to thunder or the ocean.  I love listening to him play with it before I go in and get him.

He has really discovered his voice.  When he is playing (or just in a good mood) Andrew will babble and make a screeching sound.  It's SO loud but so cute too.

Andrew loves to stand up so we decided to buy him a jumper.  He loves it.  Now he can play while standing and we don't have to be helping him 100% of the time.

So far Andrew has tried rice cereal, carrot puree, and peach puree.  His favorite is the rice cereal so far.  He likes the peach too, but I think the flavor is a little strong for him.  And he hates the carrots.  We tone down both the carrots and peaches with rice cereal and then he likes it.

He really is a happy baby, despite his lack of smiling in most of these pictures...
