5 Months Old!

*Posted November 24, 2008
Colton is 5 months old today and doing GREAT! He weighs 16 lbs 7.5 oz. I love to list things hes doing or working on for you guys but also for me. I already enjoy looking back on old posts and seeing how far we've come. So here we go, some fun things Colton did during his 5th month of life...

Colton blows raspberries and sucks on his bottom lip. He Rubs his head in a circle when he gets really tired, if only had hair to play with! He is our little acrobat. He plays with his toes and kicks his legs up over his head. When we wake him up each morning he is usually on the other side of the crib because he has kicked himself over there. Who needs to walk? He is still eating cereal between bottles and started on oatmeal yesterday. It took me a while to change from rice to oatmeal because he was having trouble adjusting to the idea of the spoon. He didn't mind the food and he'd eat what I could get in his mouth but it was quite a chore to get it in his mouth. So, we took a week and a half break. He did well with oatmeal, I think he liked the taste a little better and he's getting the hang of the spoon. I am excited to start fruits and veggies after Thanksgiving! He also laughs, really really hard, what a sweet sound. He will talk to anyone who listens and if no ones around to listen, he'll talk to himself. We were watching video of him, over the weekend, and he would talk (scream) to himself on the TV. In the mornings when he wakes himself up, and we don't have to get him up super early, we will find him in the bed just talking away. He is starting to be a little more independent. We are working on sitting up, and hes so close, but for now he will just lay on the floor and play with his little caterpillar or rattles. He has been with his Nanny for two weeks now and is doing really really well. He is a very happy content baby, he likes to know you are there and he's okay with anything. He loves to see the world and meet new people. He is so amazing!

We are looking forward to Thanksgiving and Christmas with Colton. We leave on Wednesday for the 10 hour drive to Idalou Texas where Colton will visit his Great MeeMaw's house for the first time. Idalou is one of our favorite places to be and we can't wait to share it with Colton. We are excited to see our family, enjoy the cold weather, and eat some yummy food!

Happy Thanksgiving to you all!!!

Hey Mama! It's been way too long since I've written you anything. Life has become much busier since Renner started crawling, cruising the furniture, etc. will love the fruits & veggies. Be sure to start with veggies first. Renner LOVES fruits and doesn't care for his veggies as much anymore because he loves the sweet flavor of those fruits.
Colton is growing up so quickly! I can't wait for Mandi & David to move down because then we can all hang out!!!

Happy Thanksgiving!!!!
