5 Months

Wow! It's been a while since I've done an update. Maybe two excuses are that school has now started and I also started a new job 3 weeks ago. I don't know if that's really the reason, but life has been a little busier recently.
Steven is now 5 months old!! Crazy how time flies... I tried to take pictures of him holding his little sign, but he was much more interested in playing with the paper/putting it in his mouth than anything else, including looking at the camera.
I see that my last post was about Steven finally rolling over. Well, he does it all the time now - when he's laying on his mat right after he eats (and then proceeds to spit up everything he just ate) and my favorite is when he's going down for a nap or for bed at night. In fact, I just put him down for a nap and he's already screaming because he's stuck on his stomach. That's the bad part - he can't roll back over onto his back and he doesn't like being on his tummy. So I'm working on it with him... all the time! Still no progress, but hopefully he'll learn how to do it soon so I don't have to flip him over every 30 seconds. Even though I keep flipping him over, he usually ends up falling asleep on his stomach anyway...
On wednesday, we also fed him solids for the first time! I'm not sure if he actually ate any of it though... Most of it seemed to come right out. It's obviously gonna take a while for him to get used to it.
Mostly because we started him on solids, we decided a Bumbo would be a good addition to our family. So I went and picked one up this morning. He seems to like it! Whoever came up with these was genius!!
These are just a couple random pictures we've taken over the past 3 weeks. He got the adorable checkered outfit from our friend Jen when she and her family came to visit. I took the other one just because it looked kind of like he got his pacifier and the elephant's foot confused...

Pretty darn cute!! TJ, have you been working with him and his football? Football season is here, he should be playing catch by now =}

Julia Peper said...

actually, Steve, that picture of him in the bumbo is him watching football. As you can see, he's glued to it already

1) Love the 3 pics of him on the right hand side in the top set! They make a cute series.

2) That boy has some meaty legs!

3) I wonder if he'll thank you one day for showing his bald spot, not once, but twice?

4) Beary!!

5) Great video! Too funny.

6) I also loved the picture of him with the elephant.
