you are 5 months old!

It's hard for me to even type that!! How can you be 5 months old already??!! The past few days I have had to get the baby book out everyday to document your milestones - you are doing so many new things! You are rolling over, eating solids, and moving around in your crib at night. You are so much fun!
This week you rolled over from tummy to back. I actually missed the first roll over - I was standing right beside you folding clothes, and I looked down and you were on your back!! Last night I heard you fussing in your bed after I had put you to sleep (you never do that!) and I looked on the monitor and you had flipped over on your back and you weren't happy. I went in and flipped you over and you went right to sleep!
We started rice cereal last night - you were hilarious! At first you loved it and then you weren't so sure about it. (see video below)
"you're going to feed me what?!!"
there must be some teeth in there somewhere wanting to come through because this is what I see all day long
photographer Warner took this picture - you love to play on the floor as long as someone is there to play with
You sleep from 6-7 every night and take two naps during the day (9 and 1). You love to sleep on your tummy!! You do not want to be rocked...just lay you down and you go right to sleep. Until this week you were pretty much in the same position from night to morning. Yesterday morning you were on the complete opposite end of the bed facing the other direction.

I could never get tired of this smile. You are such a joy!!

You and I have something in common - the best big brothers!! You already love Warner so much and I know that love is just going to grow and grow as time goes on.
After bath time you love to lay on your changing table naked and talk and carry on.

This is by far your favorite activity.
5 months have gone by too fast! I can't wait to watch you grow and change in the months ahead...but not too fast mister! I'm so thankful for your little life, and thank God every day for allowing me to be your mommy. I love you!

this week...

we got out the jumperoo!!!

these little feet were going to town

i could just eat him with a spoon!!

Warner even gave it a try....I'm surprised it's still standing!

Jackson doesn't exactly jump in this thing...he swings, and lays his head down while sucking his thumb!! See for yourself...

sous chef Warner

At the end of the day I usually have spit up all over my clothes and I had spit up and crawfish bisque all over my hair and clothes. Warner's first time to cook with mommy - 3 1/2 years old.

just observing for now....but it won't be long and I'll have two little helpers.

come back Santa...

and pick up this tractor you left for Warner - it's RUINING my furniture!!

Warner was out of school for 2 days last week for snow...that is just crazy! He loved it and would've stayed out there all was freezing!! Our pipes froze too...thankfully they didn't bust.

Jackson's ONLY view of the snow...I don't think he cared :)
