five months

Yup, he's five months old. Time is just flying by!!

A few facts/milestones about the little man this month:
- eating cereal and LOVING it
- has two teeth now =)
- discovered his feet (so cute to watch!)
- takes a 7 oz. bottle every four hours and cereal for a morning snack or evening snack
- naps a little in the morning, 3-4 hours in the afternoon, and then another little nap before bedtime
- LOVES to play in his exersaucer (he smiles and flaps his arms when he sees it!)
- flaps his arms like a crazy boy when he's playing (even with toys in his hands)
- (already?!) showing a preference for his left hand
- can roll from tummy to back and from back to tummy
- scoots a little bit on his tummy
- can sit up (very) briefly by himself
- his "piano" is his favorite toy
- won't sleep anywhere but in his bed
- will take his paci out of his mouth and plop his thumb in (he's a VERY loud thumbsucker, too)
- weighs a little over 15 pounds

And of course we have to have pictures. =)
(I just ADORE that look on J's face when he's looking at Dylan - such love!!!)

Oh...these pictures are so cute. I absolutely adore the one of him and Dylan:) I love these updates, but loathe them at the same time (reminds me that Ryder will be where Jackson in a short amount of time). Our little boys are growing too quickly!!!!

Say it isn't so! 5 months already!?!

You sure are capturing some amazing shots to document this time in his life. I love all of them, but especially the one of him sucking his fingers (btw, people, he IS a VERY LOUD thumb sucker!) and the one of him and Dylan. Precious. =)
