5 months

Cash is now 5 months old!  I still haven't taken his photo with his little tie on.  However, I've taken plenty of photos right at 5 months.  For shame, for shame.

So, some 5 month milestones are:

  • he found his feet here
  • he found his tongue (no pics or video yet) and LOVES to stick it out
  • he's rolling over quite often now
  • he's trying VERY hard to sit up on his own and he can do it in the corner of the couch or if he's sitting between your legs. 
  • peek a boo.  He can't get enough of it.  He tries to play it by himself if no one will play with him. He actually started this just after he turned 4 months.  {It all started with his satin-y monkey woobie, which his Aunt Danielle/cousin Aubrey gave him.  I'd go so far as to say it's his favorite toy.  He has a thing about soft textures and loves to just feel it because it's a soft fleecy feel on one side and satin on the other.  He puts it on his face and pulls it off.  Over and over.  Just to feel the softness of it.  Then he rubs his fingers on it gently as he's getting sleepy.}
  • he loves to read books and turn the pages
  • as far as foods, if it's a shade of orange, he likes it.  Anything else is pretty much a no-go.  Except pears.  He tolerates those.  And he's definitely allergic to apples.  His favorite is sweet potatoes.  He says "mmmm, mmm, mmmm, mm, mmmmmmm" (in all of his different voice inflections) the whole time he's eating if the meal is sweet potatoes.  It's adorable.
  • he still HATES his crib and insists on his swing.  Y'all, the motor is broken and it won't swing anymore and he STILL wants to be in that swing.  I've emailed the company about getting it replaced because it's still under warranty.  (I neglected to tell them that it's used for 12 hours a day/7 days a week -- they're built for that, right?!)
  • he still loves bath time and has been promoted to the big boy bath tub - no more kitchen sink baths because all he does is SPLASH!!!  The kitchen becomes a war zone during bath time! (and I STILL have NO pics of bath time :/  and this makes me sad)
this is as good as it's gonna get for "5 months" this month, I think.  Look at those chunky legs!!  

He's only intrigued by them when they are in the footie jammies.  The fact that his feet move the fabric independently is what makes him so mesmerized.  When we free his feet, he no longer cares about them.  It's like, "oh, those things - psssh."

Stay tuned: coming up - Cash's first beach trip!
