5 months

Grayson is 5 months old today!
He woke up very happy this morning...he loves his monthly birthdays!
Grayson's stats:
Weight: 15lbs
Height: 25.5in
Diaper: size 1 or 2
Clothes: all 6 month...we sadly have packed up all of your 3 month & 3-6 month clothes:(
Food: He is eating four 8oz. bottles a day + some cereal in the morning & at night
This month Grayson finally rolled over from tummy to back! He still can't figure out how to get on his tummy from his back...although he does like to lay on his side now. He is trying so hard to sit up all by himself and can do it for a few seconds & then kicks/leans and falls over. He wants to be independent!
He is having a great time at his baby school. Ms. Pat and Ms. Kristy say that he talks all day long and doesn't sit still much. He pretty much goes from toy to toy to keep himself entertained. He has also created many beautiful works of art. :) I'll share those some other time!
G is sleeping about 11 hours straight each night. It. is. heavenly. For the past week we have been trying to change his schedule a little bit so he could stay up a little later and sleep a little later. We've made a little progress! Grayson is going to bed around 7:00pm and waking up between 5:45 and 6:15am. Not too bad for one week of re-training!
We also introduced rice cereal this week. Grayson was skeptical at first & then realized it was food and chowed down! He is eating cereal in the morning after his bottle and at night before his bath & bedtime routine. The other night I just put a few spoonfuls of the cereal on his highchair tray and he went to town smearing it everywhere. He really loved making a big ol' mess--such a boy!! We have also weaned him off of his Similac Alimentum..HOORAY!!!!! That stuff is $26 a can and the regular Similac is $13. Hello, money in the bank.
G's favorite hobbies include: talking constantly, watching the dogs play and chase tennis balls, strolling through the neighborhood with mama, chewing on Sophie, loving on froggy, standing up on anything and everything, exersaucing (is that the same as exercising for babies?), laughing at his daddy, playing on his quilt in the playroom, pulling on my hair (ouch), and looking out the window in the car now that he is in a big boy carseat!
Grayson is such a happy baby and I just love picking him up in the afternoons and seeing that big, gummy grin! I can't believe how fast he is changing. It seems like he is learning something new each day! I say this each month, but I really love this stage we are in right now. He is so fun & adds so much joy to our lives!
Happy 5 months, little G!
