Silas 5 months

Yesterday was Silas' 5 month day!

It seems like we went from 4 months to 5 months in the blink of an eye (I mean, even faster than normal.). I guess that is what happens when you spend 2 weeks either in bed or in the hospital and don't get to play. :( He is the cutest thing and is getting bigger everyday.

These days Silas is:

*eating oatmeal cereal twice a day (we are starting veggies this afternoon!)

*drinking a little apple juice

*still rolling EVERYWHERE - When he sees something that he wants he rolls until he can get it.

*Grabbing EVERYTHING - hair, necklaces, toys, paintbrushes full of pottery paint (yikes!), and lips...Justin and I both have scratches on our upper lips from where he has grabbed us and not let go! Owie.

*Jumping and spinning in his Johnny Jumper

*LOVING his daddy

*weighing 13lbs 4oz. He is still a long, skinny little toot, but is starting to fill out a little more.

*Holding his own bottle like a big boy

*starting to sit up. Well, he sits up and leans forward and holds himself up with his arms either on the floor or on his legs. Very cute.

He has had bronchiolitis this week so we've been dealing with that, but he is getting better everyday. His little throat is hoarse from coughing so when he cries he just sounds pitiful - but it kinda makes me laugh too because it's such a strange sound. :)

Jumping in his Johnny Jumper (or whatever it is called).

Eating Mommy's tickets - I'm gonna have to stop using the floor as a desk.

This is where I found him yesterday. Half-way under the couch and across the room from where I left him.

He soooo wishes he could crawl!



  1. He looks like he's just as much of a live wire as I remember his momma being! ;D I sure wish I knew this little guy!

  2. crackin' me up with those tickets (while reading his book!)

  3. It's amazing how quickly he has grown up. He's such a mover and a shaker. I'm sure he will be running around your home in no time.

    I'm so glad to hear that you are alright now. I guess the worries of being a new mom aren't always about the baby.

    Take care,


You know what to do!
