Five Months

I know I say this every month, but where oh where has the time gone?!?!!

These past few weeks Max has gained so many new skills, so it's almost a growing up overload for this mama. :( But it's been so fun to watch little man discover new things about the world around him!

Here's what our five-month old is up to these days:

Max nurses 5 times a day, and has started eating a bit of rice cereal at breakfast.

He sleeps from about 7:30pm until 7:00am (well, technically he wakes up about 6:30 
and just babbles in his crib until I come get him). Hooray!

We are just about to outgrow all the 3-6 month clothing. 
Mostly Max wears 6 month or 6-9 month clothes. (Kiddo, stop growing!!!)

Max is still drooling quite a bit, but no teeth yet! He is still gnawing on everything 
and can be a little fussbudget at times. We are sure that first tooth will 
poke its little head through any day now (although we've been saying that for weeks.)

Max is working on so many new skills! He can roll both ways, scoot himself backwards 
(not regularly, thank goodness), and sit up unassisted for brief periods of time. It is absolutely amazing to watch him figuring it all out.

He traveled quite a bit in the past month (to Abilene and Denton) and even flew on an airplane! 
I was so impressed at how little man handled it just like a pro. :)

We've gotten lots more giggles this month, although unfortunately none on video. 
It is always curious what makes him laugh (Mommy yawning???).

Bath time is one of Max's favorite times of day, maybe because it's with Daddy. They have so much fun splashing in the water!

We are constantly amazed at the things little man is teaching us - what a little miracle! 
I have a feeling these next few months will be full of even more lessons for us 
(like how our house is SO not babyproofed). :)

We love you, Maxwell James!
