Beside the sickness, Brendan's fifth month has been going really well, he is developing amazingly! At this point he rolls over with ease from him back to his tummy and then back and all across the floor. He is handling tummy-time more than before although he still doesn't like it as much as on his back. But while on his tummy he can scoot in circles on the floor.
We started Rice Cereal on December 12th. He is starting to get the hang of eating with a spoon, but a lot still comes out with each bite. He is much more interested in the spoon itself than the food on it. He is sitting up really well, pretty much with assistance but he sat by himself the other day watching Daddy play on the Wii for about 3 minutes straight (I know it doesn't sound like much, but it is a big deal to us!) He is hitting all the proper development milestones on time if not sooner. a couple weeks ago we watched a sample video of Baby Einstein. He really enjoyed the color and movement on the screen.
My favorite is Brendan's facial expressions. he puckers his lips and sticks out his tongue. The other day in Target he was laughing up a storm in target with Daddy! We love to make him laugh and see what funny faces he can make. Enjoy a few of the faces we were able to catch on film!
