5 months old today!

Crazy how fast the time goes. He's 5 months old and ALMOST crawling already!

 Love this one!
 Happy Memorial Day!!!!
He is just about 15 pounds and roughly 26" long!!! Big boy

Here is one of him eating avocados the other day!
And a video of him trying to crawl just taken this afternoon. He is growing up quick!!!
We just now finally bought him a crib. It will be here by week's end. So just yesterday I put him in his own room to try it out. He took a 1.5 hour long nap in there in his bassinet part of his playpen. Then he went to bed at 9:45. He was up at 1:45 and then again at 6:10. Then finally woke up at 8:30!! So he did really good. I was surprised. That room is right up next to the street and the sun comes in, in the morning. It's way different than our room. And when he was in our room after that 6 feeding he wouldn't sleep in the playpen anymore, he would only sleep if he was in bed with me. So I'm already seeing a difference. And he was usually waking once at night around 5:30-6 when Jon's alarm would go off. I'm thinking that with him in his own room maybe that feeding will get cut out completely. Right now he's waking out of habit. So we'll see if that changes. 

Today he's taken one 1.5 hour nap and right now has been sleeping for 2 hours in there!!! YAY! Hopefully we're on a good sleep schedule again!

He is getting so big, he'll be crawling this week and walking soon after - what a doll. I'm glad I have 3 grand babies so I can get my fix now n' then. LOL

My son woke less when we moved him to his own crib/room too.
