Five Months

Noah is five months old today and I have no idea how that happened.  The last five months just flew by without me even noticing.  My baby is growing so fast!!

New things this month:  He is finally sleeping through the night.  Yay!!  He got sick about mid-January and has been sleeping through the nights since then.  It's as good as I had hoped it would be.  Also, we have started giving him oatmeal.  The first few times it took him a minute to figure out what was going on and what he was supposed to do with it.  But he seems to be getting the hang of it and really seems to enjoy it.  He figured out how to escape from his swaddle wrap, so we have switched to one of the sleep sacks (thanks Nanna!).   It's become more difficult to dress him because he grabs anything you put near him and shoves it into his face.  He really likes to do this with his towels after a bath.

We are buying some nine month clothes now because not all of the six month ones are long enough for this little giant of mine.  He's still skinny, though, so there is lots of extra room in his pants.  His personality is coming out even more, and he has a lot of it.  He is so funny and so adorable.  He's happy most of the time and will give a smile freely to anyone who shows him attention.  He is such a little blessing and I just can't believe that we get to have him.  I know it won't always easy, but I can't wait to see the person he's going to grow up to be.  I know he's going to be amazing.  And we are definitely going to have some fun along the way.
