5 Months!

Our little man is 5 months old already! Seems like yesterday we were telling our family and friends that we were pregnant and that was already a year ago! He is doing so many new things! I'm having a hard time keeping up with his baby book. Eli is so curious about the world around him. When I take him to the store or a restaurant, he is constantly looking around at all the people, lights, etc. He has finally started to sleep through the night (about half the time) and is developing such a little personality! When people give him attention, he turns to me and giggles like he is shy...SO cute! He is rolling all over the place and sometimes manages to scoot himself a few inches. He can also "sit on all fours" which the doctor said he should be doing by six months so he is ahead of schedule! He loves rice cereal, green beans, sweet potatoes, and peaches. He didn't like bananas or peas on the first try, but we will keep at it. :)

VERY unofficial stats: (taken at home with a very squirmy baby)
Weight: 18 lbs.
Height: 28 inches

Eli has also become very interested in Pita. He watches her walk around and tries to grab her as she passes by. Pita is just as in love with Eli. As you can see from this picture, Eli is trying to put Pita in his mouth, which is what he does with everything! Wonder if those teeth are ever going to come in?? :)
