Cooper, I can't believe you're already 5 months old. This year is just flying by! I'm not sure how much you weigh, but I'd guess around 14 pounds. We just moved you into a size 3 diaper, and you're also starting to fit into your 6 month clothes. We've started trying the rice cereal again. Some days you like it, and other days, you don't want any. We'll probably try to introduce some veggies in the next couple of weeks.
We're still working on getting you to sleep better. You go to bed around 9:00, but you wake up at 10:00, and 11:00. After that, it's usually 3-4 hours before you wake up to eat again. You're napping okay though. Some days you fight it, but if your daddy is home, he can always rock you to sleep.
You just can't stop smiling at us lately! You've really started laughing at Jackson a lot. He loves to talk to you and tickle you, and you seem just taken with him. You also LOVE when you see your daddy in the mornings. You have such a big smile! You are still so squirmy. You just don't want to stay still. You are starting to push up onto your hands and knees, so I think you're going to be crawling pretty soon. You've kind of started the army crawl, and seem a little more content since you can make your way to the toys you want to get to now. You really don't want anything to do with the swing, the bouncer, or any baby gear that makes you sit. You do like the exersaucer though, and that has been a lifesaver!
You've also started sticking your toes in your mouth. It's pretty hilarious. You were getting so mad in your bath the other day because you kept trying to grab your foot and it kept slipping out of your hands. Such a silly boy!
It's so hard to remember what our family was like without you. We love you, baby boy!
