five months old

Is it me or did this past month fly by? Might have something to do with that big distraction called "work". We've been adjusting to my schedule and I feel lucky to be able to come home for lunch every day to hang out with Cole.

We've also had lots of visitors this month. Every week brought someone new. Lucky us! Cole was always ready to impress showing off his new found skills to everyone. When the Mayekawas and Auntie Winn were here he was reaching for things, pushing off against Uncle Bobby's hands during tummy time, grabbing his toes, and eager to stand when propped up. The week after, he rolled over! He showed Auntie Jen how well he could hold things with both hands. More rolling when Auntie Virgie was here. Auntie Lissa missed out 'cause she only stopped by for a short while close to his bed time. That'll teach her. On Easter, we had a nice lunch with Grandma in sunny Del Mar.

Cole's also moved into his crib in his own room this month. The first week went well, but this past week he's been waking up more frequently. We think he's teething, though our ped says otherwise. Yes, there's more drooling. He also prefers to nurse over the bottle and wakes up more frequently to do so throughout the night. He really likes to bite down on my washcloth-covered finger. Though his fave continues to be stuffing his burp cloth in his mouth, except nowadays, he's really biting down on it.

He's growing fast, but I still find ways to keep him in duckie feet. Love these things!
