Micah is 5 Months Old

Man oh man - I can't believe this.  Sometimes I feel like Micah is so big and other times he still seems so small, which is good.  I'm not ready for him to be all grown up yet.  ;)  Again, I'm a little late with this post, but not by that much so I'm still in the good mom category.  ;)

Fair warning - this post has a million pictures.  I couldn't narrow them down so I added them all.  Enjoy!

 5 Months!!

This time of year is so busy for us (and everyone I'm sure) so we've had so much going on.  We went out of town several times, had 3 Thanksgivings, visited a new church, hung out with friends, got a will, voted, had company over, worked on a secret present and so much more.

Our first Thanksgiving!

Micah has started rice cereal this month.  It didn't take long for him to catch on to it.  He even ate two bowls the other day. The instructions say to start him off with it very water but that was pretty hard for him to eat so I made it just a little bit thicker and it worked much better for him.

Such a big boy!

We taught Micah to spit this month - on accident of course.  We were making the 'whatever you call it' noise where we stick out our tongue and blow to make your tongue vibrate and he started sort of spitting to copy us.  He's not doing what we're doing but is it still super cute.

I'd really rather be watching that crazy boy running around behind you mom!

Micah started sitting up this month too!!!! He can't sit unassisted of course, but he can sit up by himself for a few seconds and he's getting much better at sitting against something and not falling over.  I've even got him to play on his tummy a little bit before rolling over.  He used to immediately roll over.

See - I can lean/sit

Micah is still sleeping through the night.  He's started sleeping even longer.  He often sleeps 10 - 12 hours a night.  And he's gotten much better at napping during the day.  So, he's sleeping more than he was a month or so ago but I think it's because I'm trying to be better about getting him to nap at the same times.

This is how he practices sitting up

He's getting so much more vocal.  Not only is he making more noises, he's making them louder. It's one of my favorite things to hear him 'talk'.  I love it!  He'll also laugh pretty hard but you have to work for it.  He just doesn't give up those belly laughs for nothing.  He'll give you a smile all day long but a laugh is harder to come by.  :)
Me, Micah and his great grandma

And the most exciting news of all, is he cut two teeth this week. (a few days after his 5 month birthday but I'm still counting it in the 5 month category)  I'm amazed!  I thought I felt something the other day but Curtis couldn't tell.  Then a few days later I notice the tips of two bottom teeth!!!!!  They're not out enough to take a picture, but you can see them if you can manage to get his tongue and lips out of the way.  LOL.

Micah and his 3rd cousin

I thank God every day for our healthy happy boy and am so thankful that he is doing well.  We go back to the doctor around his 6 month birthday so we'll see how much he's grown then.  I hope he's sitting up really well by Christmas!
My sort of Zoolander look

I hope all is well with you guys and I hope it's not forever before I post again.  Love ya - Stef
