5 months Old!!!

I know this post in a little late...but better late then never!

And, for the very first time, I'm actually sad that he's getting older. Until recently, I always looked forward to him growing older. I couldn't wait until he sleeping longer. I anticipated getting to see him roll over for the very first time. I longed for the moment when he would share a real smile with me. And, the sound of his sweet laugh was something I just couldn't wait any longer to hear.
And, now that all of those moments I so eagerly awaited have come, I find myself wanting to stop time. I want every sweet second with him to last forever. I can't get enough of his slobbery kisses and that smile of his makes my heart completely melt. I want to be able to rock him to sleep every night of my life. I want to be able to hold him forever.
BUT, I have found one phase of his life that I honestly wish would just fly by... teething. Because, knowing that my screaming baby (who suddenly doesn't sleep through the night like he used to) is in pain... and realizing that Tylenol doesn't really make him feel better... is a phase that will not be missed! At all.

With all of the sappy crap aside... Happy 5 months sweet E Man! (My newest nickname for Ian) At 5 months, Ian:

*Still HATES bath time. I have no idea why. Help?
*Weighs 17 lbs 9 oz! Holy cow.
*Wears size 6-9 month clothing... and is busting out!
*Size 2 diapers....we may be saying goodbye swaddlers and hello crusiers
*Has started to like tummy time. Luckily for him, he's realized that he can just roll over!
*Has started squealing with delight - it's the cutest thing!
*Smiles.all.the.time. :)
*Can almost sit unassisted. He'll stay for a few seconds, then it's down he goes!
*Is spitting up more- what the?

*Takes 5 bottles each day, with 5 oz. in each bottle. Nurses about 3 times, and is eatting solids!
*Isn't a fan of green beans, or apples...but LOVES Pears, Avacado, Peas, Squash, and Bananas. *Pears are his favorite!
*Has a new favorite toy: his feet! Anytime he's laying down, he pulls his feet up and grabs onto them... it's so cute!

*Puts his arms up on demand for Daddy. Dan says, "Hands Up!", and up they go!
*Loves to touch/grab your face while you're talking to him. Just make sure he doesn't get your hair or earrings... because he will not let go!
