David: 5 months old

David was 5 months old last week (9/16). We were on vacation and I didn't have Internet access to post on the actual day. He is growing so fast and is such a big boy. I don't know the exact stats because he doesn't go back to the doctor until next month, but he is filling out 6-9 months size clothing easily. He is all smiles and my little cuddler. This month, our big accomplishment is playing with toys. He actually picks things up and plays with them (mainly he tries to put them in his mouth). His new toy is the jumper that hangs from the door frame in our kitchen. He is still honing his jumping skills, but is starting to get the hang of it. He is becoming more active in the exersaucer as well. He is now eating 6 oz. formula every 3-4 hours, oatmeal and fruit (so far ... apples, bananas, peaches and pears) for breakfast and oatmeal and a veggie (so far ... squash, sweet potatoes, carrots and green beans) for dinner. Maybe next month, we will add lunch! He is rolling over much more frequently than last month and sleeps at night for 12 hours! Yeah!! (I saved the best news for last.) Here are some photos from the past month.

On the floor for some much needed tummy time.

We love our bumbo seat. Thanks Mel for letting us borrow it! Claire likes it too and thought it was a potty the first time she saw it. Fortunately, we caught her before she actually used it as a potty.

Look at my sweet angel sleeping.

The jumper. Not his favorite toy ... yet. Claire would still play in this thing if she didn't exceed the weight limit. She LOVED this thing.
