Playing Catch Up...again!!

I have been a total slacker. I've kinda gotten addicted to FaceBook, and between that and a fussy little boy, I tend to run out of time. Ryan turned 5 months old today. Our little boy is getting so big. He can sit up for a short amount of time on his own, and last night figured out how to roll from his back to his belly. Too bad he hasn't figured out how to roll back to his back. He tries to combat crawl across the floor. He LOVES the dog. Everytime he sees Peanut his eyes light up and he gets a huge grin on his face and starts squealing with delight. This last Monday night, we started working on transitioning him to his crib in his own room. The first night he ended up back in our room after he woke up to eat the first time. I couldn't get him to go back to sleep in his own room. By last night, he was doing much better in there. He went to bed at 8:30 and woke up at 10:30 hungry. He didn't wake up again until a little after 4:00. I put him back in his crib, and he didn't cry....but he didn't go to sleep either. He was still in there babbling and playing at 5:00. He woke up again a little after 6:00 and Justin had just pulled in the driveway. He was screaming his little head off and Justin heard him from outside. He was barreling up the stairs just as I was going across the hall. He wouldn't go back to sleep then, and Justin said to just put him in bed with us so we could get some snuggle time with him. He's napping a little bit better. I can get him to sleep for about an hour at a time for his naps. He'll won't go to the Dr. for a checkup this month. We get to wait one more month before he has to get shots again. (YAY). When we went in for his 4 month checkup he was up to 12 lbs 10.5 oz and 24 3/4 inches long. He is growing like a weed!!

We've also started some solids with him. He's been getting rice cereal for about a month now, and last week we started introducing some other foods. He loves sweet potatoes, and will tolerate apple sauce. We will be starting another new one tomorrow. I haven't decided yet if we are going to do squash or carrots. I'm sure whatever we do, it will be just as fun as the others have been.

Here are some recent pictures of our little munchkin!!

Peanut didn't think I cleaned Ryan up well enough after he had eaten.
