Showin' Owen: 5 Months Old

I know I say this every post but I can't believe my little baby boy is 5 months old!  He is growing up too fast!  Seriously how is it that pregnancy just DRAGS on by, but their little lives just ZOOM right past you if you aren't looking!  Here are somethings about Owen at 5 months.
Big Boy at 5 months!!!
 1. He weighs about 16 lbs and is in the 60 something percecntile for height
2.  He is babbling a lot more, loving to talk to Mommy, the wall, big brother, the fan. . . well you get the picture
3.  He is a pro at holding his head up, and will look at you when you say his name :)

Patches was just too enticing
 4. He is working on sitting up, but isn't quite there yet.  That head just keeps weighing him down. 
5.  He doesn't giggle readily, you have to really work to get it out of him, but when you do it is the cutest sound ever!
So Smiley!
6.  He smiles constantly and loves to find me across the room and give me the biggest grin.  Can't say I hate it. 
7.  He likes soft things, and loves the mam pacis.  I like those too becuase when they fall they almost always land nipple up, so you don't have to wash them (pathetic I know)
8.  He can roll over tummy to back with ease and is SSSSSOOOO close to consistently rolling back to tummy.  He gets caught on the side or distracted by the toys on his play mat.
9.  He has found his feet and thinks they are super tasty!  I think it's super cute!
10.  He is still getting up one time in the night.  We are trying cry it out, but he is a stubbor buggar.  He will cry off and on (and yet not really be awake, just crying with his eyes closed) for 45 minutes.  Doctor said "Sometimes, you just have to be more stubborn than they are"
11.  He has started eating cereal at breakfast and right before bed and seems to like it ok.  He is still nursing and for that I am thankful! 

Still my cuddle bug

A Post of Pictures

Hello all! I know I am sparadic at updating, but I am telling you, no internet is the blame.  I have a thousand and one posts in my head and there is nothing I can do about them.   Sp I decided I would use what I have here at the school in way of pictures (aka my phone) and give yall brief updates.

Reid with my cousin Ty during a Lil' Cats baseball day.  He got to run out on the field with him.

He had so much fun!

The lady he stays with has a horse, and he, mommy, and daddy got to ride one day!

Weekly Saturday cleaning routine!  This boy loves to be carried

And is just the sweetest anyway!

Sometimes you gotta just let them play in the rain

First swim of the season with Daddy!

Family fishing trip!
We had Owen's Baby dedication at church (another post full of pictures to come)

I cut off all my hair!  Still unsure but too late now!

Someone can now peddle on their own1

We went to the Clifton Lake Weekend in Tyler and got some quality aunt and uncle time.  This is Blake with Owen Blake :)

I am planning on doing a post on this, homemade silly putty!  Reid loved it!

Love these boys!

Someone was worn out (and found their thumb, boo, but oh so cute!)
