5 Months.

I am in complete disbelief. Carter is 5 months old, which is dangerously close to SIX months old. And six months is halfway to the big o-n-e. Somebody get this baby man of mine to slow down.

He's becoming more and more interested in our dogs. If he's playing on the floor and one of the girls comes close enough, he ends up with a handful of their fur. It's so sweet! The feelings are definitely mutual. ;)

Carter is also enjoying lots of quality time with Daddy. If Ryan isn't working on the weekend, they usually hang out together on Saturday mornings so I can sleep in.

Carter is busy, busy, busy! He loves his bouncer and will "yell" at me from across the room to get me to pay attention to him if I'm working. He also really loves his sit me up seat when it's full of toys.

He also got to try out a couple firsts this month-- it was his first ride in his convertible carseat and his first ride in Mommy's convertible. We only put the top down in the neighborhood, but he enjoyed looking around. 

Carter continues to be a chatterbox. He loves squealing, screaming, and singing. He also loves to eat now that we're exploring some solids. Sometimes he sings and eats at the same time, as you can see here. The days definitely aren't boring.

He does have his quiet moments sometimes. He loves looking at books and turning the pages!

We continue to be so happy for our smiley, happy boy!

What's new this month:
-He loves playing with his feet, but is still a big fan of his fingers too.
-He rolls over from back to belly all the time, but is still working on belly to back. This means he gets stuck often. It's hilarious.
-He loves sitting up with support.
-He has moved up to 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers.
-He's a solid eating champion and especially loves pears.
-He went to his first birthday party when my nephew turned 4.
-He met his extended family on my side for the first time.
