5 Months Old...

I am 5 months old today!

I weigh 14 lbs, 13 ounces (25th percentile) and am 25 1/2 inches long (25-50th percentile).

I sleep 13 hours at night, which my mom says is AWESOME! I love it when she's proud of me...

I like playing with toys that light up and make music. My favorite trick is taking my paci out of my mouth and waving it around for people to see. It makes me feel like such a big boy.

When my mom puts me on my tummy I like to try and crawl...I can't quite do it yet, but I'm sure trying!

There's no one I love more than my big sister, Hailey. She makes me smile and laugh all the time. She tells me all the time how much she loves me...she even cried harder than I did when I got my shots today!! I tried telling her I was okay, but she just kept crying...she's a little over-protective. :)

I tried rice cereal the other day and so far it's not my favorite. I'll let you know how things go after my mom finally lets me have yummy stuff like veggies!!

Well, it's time for my afternoon nap! My mom says that if my sister and I take a good nap that we can go to Watson's today and see their Christmas trees!! :)

New Hailey-isms...

"Hey, can I have one of those maz-a-geens?" - May I have a magazine?

"You're the best of the best!" - I like you a lot.

"My neck hurts." - My throat hurts.

My personal fave was last night after Todd got in his car accident (at the end of our street) I was standing on the porch trying to see what was going on when Hails came out and asked me where Daddy was. I told her that someone accidentally hit his car with their car but that he was okay. She immediately goes, "Let's hurry...and...get our shoes on...and...and...and...go SAVE HIM!!" :)

(Thank you Aunt Lynn Honey for the BEAUTIFUL Dora the Explorer nightgown that makes twirling so much fun! :)

picking my battles...

A very wise mother once told me that the secret to parenting is picking your battles. In our family, issues like obedience to the Lord, respect for your elders, and not throwing manipulative fits are what we're not budging on. That means that in an effort no not always be telling Hails "NO!", I grin and bear it when this is what she wants to wear out of the house...If you see us around and can't believe what she's wearing, just know that SHE picked it out!! ;)

Hailey has this play phone that rings every time you close makes it hard to stop the cycle of "phone call" after "phone call". :)

Here is a little "phone call" I overheard from the back seat of my car...

"Oh, hi...yeah...uh huh...sure! I'll call you...okay...bye, voicemail!!"

Todd and I giggled to ourselves, but when trying to get her out of the car when we got home she shut her phone, it rang, and she yells, "DADDY!! Let me go!! Someone's calling me!!!".

Can't wait for the real teenage years... ;)
