5 months and counting. . .

So, today Connor is 5 months old and I cannot get over how time flies by. He definitely is his own person and its very exciting to see his personality develop daily. He is such a flirt when we go out to run errands and I'll just let y'all figure out who he got that from! We are gradually transitioning from the newborn stage to the baby stage. This week Connor rode in the grocery cart like a big boy and he now rides in his stroller like a big boy too! He always has a smile on his face, unless he is tired or hungry.

Not much has changed in Connor's everyday routine, however I think his favorite part of the day is going to daycare to see all of his friends. He loves his teachers and I feel much more comfortable leaving him there now. Connor is definitely a baby who lives by a schedule, that comes from me for sure! Last night he hit a major milestone and rolled over (from his tummy to his back). I was so excited for him because now he is starting to figure out that he can do things for himself. The other thing that Connor has gotten really good at is throwing stuff on the floor, especially his binki. He now has a binki clip to fix that!

Here are few more details:
Weight 16.5 lbs (50th percentile)
Length 25 in (50th percentile)
Head (85th percentile)---he definitely has a lot of brains!
Sleeps from 8:30 pm until 6 am
Eats about 32 ozs a day (no solids because he broke out in a horrible rash and we are going back to square one to fix the issue)
He has become bored with his hands in his mouth, so the next best thing is his feet!

Thanks for checking in. . .I don't know why, but a lot of the pictures I have today are during bath time, oh well who doesn't like a naked baby!

This was after one of his first days at daycare, he was absolutely exhausted!

This is Colleen, his first babysitter who loves him like her own!

The sisters he will always love!

Sensory Overload!

So I can't help posting this picture of baby Connor and Grandpa David. The family attended Jodie's wedding last weekend and Connor was definitely taking in his surroundings! (I think the band was a little loud for him)
