Five Month Man

I'm a little behind. Jack turned five months on Thursday. He's had a busy month! He rolls back to belly and vice versa. He sleeps in his room by himself all night long. He still wakes up very early in the morning to eat, but he sleeps "late" for one of our children! He l-o-v-e-s to eat. Nursing as well as his other foods. He has had cereal, fruits, and vegetables. There's nothing he's not liked so far. Applesauce, bananas, pears, peaches, prunes, plums, butternut squash, sweet potatoes, avocado, pumpkin, peas, green beans, carrots. . . he'll happily eat them all! He's getting so big. I weighed him today on my parents' scale and I estimate he's about 18ish pounds. He smiles all the time now, and his brothers make him laugh constantly, especially David. Henry's still not super interested in Jack, unless someone says they're going to take him home, keep him, etc. Then he's very defensive and says, "He's OUR baby!" He laughs a great big belly laugh which has quickly become one of my favorite sounds. He wakes up cooing and "talking" in his crib in the morning, craning his neck to see his Glo Worm. His two bottom teeth are starting to come through. They're not entirely out yet, but you can see and feel them. He's a wonderful baby and has quickly earned the name Happy Jack. Photos coming soon!!
