Henry is now 5 months (+ a few weeks...I am a bit late in posting). I cannot believe how fast time is flying by! I know people say it all the time but it's crazy how fast they grow-right before your eyes!! I was looking at him the other day and he no longer looks like an infant. He is a baby! No more just lying around taking it all in. He's now moving and exploring things and putting EVERYTHING in his mouth that he can get his chubby little hands on. He laughs and babbles and is very expressive. He is so animated and just down right busy! That's my word that best describes him right now, busy! He grabs and reaches for everything! His favorite are glasses and earrings and he's not afraid to pull them clean off your head if you're not careful! He is a drooling machine! I know he's about to get a tooth. I can tell his bottom gums are swollen and when he is still enough for me to look, I think I can see a little something that's not quite broken through the skin. He is starting to be able to sit up some, with assistance. He's not crawling but will rotate around on his belly or roll to reach something. He LOVES to take a bath! He gets excited and kicks and splashes. He also loves to be outside. I wish I was home with him more during the day so we could stroll. He has tried every vegetable in "stage 1" babyfoods and loves peas and carrots. He will eat any of them but I can tell he likes them best. His least favorite is squash. I am going to start him on fruits this week and I'm sure he will like that. I will post pics asap...this whole working thing has thrown a kink in all of my free time!
