So far he's tried rice cereal, prunes, and oatmeal. The 2 cereals have gone over fine but the prunes were yucky to you. Who could blame him? You still very much prefer milk in it's unaltered state but you'll at least eat the cereal without gagging and making a horrible face.
The prunes were an attempt to get your bowels flowing. You must be storing up for the winter because what goes in does not seem to come out. So far you don't seem to be in any discomfort, so we'll just keep waiting...and waiting.
You have discovered your hands and haven't removed them from your mouth ever since. You recently were sitting in your Bumbo seat and bent over to discover your feet. You tried your hardest to get one in your mouth but you couldn't. You then got frustrated and wanted out of that seat. Patience is a common trait in our house!
When you hold Daddy's fingers, you love to pull yourself up to a standing position. You've skipped the seating or kneeling position and have gone straight to full on standing. You lock those little knees and are strong as an ox. Daddy predicts you'll be an early walker, maybe even foregoing crawling.
You are also constantly moving and kicking and squirming - another sign you'd love to take off.
Your hair is still rockin'. I'm not sure anything short of a buzz is going to tame that beast. Between your pretty blue eyes and your wild hair, you get a lot of comments from onlookers. We think it's super cute and couldn't imagine our little Sawyer without it.
Your smile is infectious and lucky for us, you still give it to us a lot. You're talking and cooing away and we just need to learn your language so we can engage in a conversation with you. Right now it seems very one-sided.
It's hard to believe it's already been 5 months since you were born. You are getting to be such a big boy! We love you and your beautiful smile.
