Oliver is Five Months Old!


17 pounds, 6 ounces  (70%)
28 inches long (above 95% ... off the chart)
16.75 inch head circumference  (30%)

At five months, Oliver:

eats 7-8 ounces "on demand"
also devours 2 bowls of rice or barley cereal each day (prefers barley)
wears either size 6-9 or 6-12 months clothes (and is too long for some of them ... whew!)
has graduated to size 3 diapers
no longer has a blocked tear duct ... FINALLY!
stopped sleeping through the night ... unfortunately ... and eats once at night instead
is alert*alert*alert* ... and only naps ONCE a day, from 1-3pm (when Jax sleeps ... thanks!)
continues to be the world's most content baby ... and never cries
protests his infant seat at restaurants by arching his back until Mommy takes him out to hold him
still sleeps with a hand outstretched on his forehead

... laughs out loud ...

rolls constantly and quickly
reaches out and grasps objects
LOVES ripping paper
has started to enjoy small toys
is becoming the master of his jump-a-roo
passes his time gazing lovingly at his big brother, Jackson
met his Aunt Ella and Cousin Missy for the first time this month
went on his first hay ride in September
smiles at anyone who looks at him ... and sheepishly turns away and squeals 
sucks his toes ... well ... and all the time!
lives for bath time
has earned the name "brother" from Jackson ... and a few, very selective, kisses

loves Mommy the very best (or at least I like to think so)

... and fits perfectly into our family!

Happy Five Months, baby boy!
