Last Tuesday Anderson hit the 5 month mark....sometimes when he smiles at me I get a flash back of me crying about the pregnancy and I can't even remember what the big deal was about but I am sooooo happy God blessed us with this little guy. Life is ever changing with him around, even after five months there is still a lot to get used to and before I know it he will be on the move and shaking my world again.
Things I need to remember about this past month are:
~He can sit up without support if you put him in that position
~Rolls over to his left side and onto his belly really easily
~He loves the ABC song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
~He will cry when he sees me leave the room
~Can make a complete circle on his belly pushing with his arms
~Mimics a cough when he hears one
~Reaches for faces and loves teeth
~He started drooling like crazy
~Had his first bites on Monday the 15th, rice cereal and boobie milk...yummy!
~loves to play in his exersaucer and watch Baby Einstein
~When held up by his hands on a flat surface he holds his weight very well on his legs
~Tries to reach for his toes but his fat belly gets in the way
~And the number one thing that he does is: (drum roll please) PREFERS MOMMY TO ANY
~weighs 18.10 lbs
~He wears size 9-12 month clothing and size 3 diaper
OTHER PERSON ON EARTH!!! Sometimes this is a sweet thing and other times it is a tad inconvenient :)
Anderson is my first kid to love the whole first bites thing. The other two made a cringe face but as you can see in his very first food photo he is going straight for the spoon, he loves it!
