5 Months

My baby is 5 months today! Where is the time going? Everyday he grows a little more independent. He is a bona fide roller now! He rolled over for the Hubby several weeks ago an I finally got to witness it this past weekend. He sits up with some assistance. He now has a fascination with cups. If we are holding him an attempt to drink from a cup, he HAS to touch the cup or try and take it. He takes all his naps in his crib now and for the most part that is going well. He still spends his nights with us and we begin the transfer to nights in the crib at 6 months. The most significant change for me his past month, well really the past couple of weeks, is that he will go to sleep on his own without rocking or walking the floor! I thought it was a fluke when I wrote about before, but lately it has been a sure thing! When he wakes at night and won’t go right back to sleep, I lay him on his back or side, and he will play or talk himself to sleep:)
He is growing like a weed. He still isn’t a huge fan of solids. So, I admit I’ve slacked on feeding them to him. Hubby won’t feed him at all because he says RJ just screamed he few times he tried. I don’t have that problem, but it takes time and lots of patience. Anyway, I started back yesterday because I realized he hadn’t pooped in a few days. Eating solids seemed to be keeping him regular. I bought an avocado while grocery shopping yesterday and I’m going to see how well that goes over today.
I can’t believe we are almost half way to his first birthday?!
