Cooper-5 Months!!

Wasn't it just yesterday that I was writing Coop's 4 month update?! 

Holy. Guacamole.

Happy Baby Picture..ready...go!

Height: 24 3/4"
Weight: 13 lbs 5 oz
Diapers: Size 2
Clothes: 3-6 Months

Highlights from this month:
-Rolls both ways...all the time!
-Laughs...oh those laughs melt my heart!
-Looks at me or Jon when he hears our voices.
-Looks at you when you say his name.
-Grabs toys...and they go directly to his mouth.
-Attempts to hold bottle..but gets lazy half way through. But he can put his bottle into his mouth if you hand it to him..he just doesn't hold it up enough to completely be independent on this one.
-Tried squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, and peas. We're 3 of 4...not sure we're a fan of peas yet!
-Takes 5 oz of formula every 3 hours. 
-Sat up unassisted for the first time on 7/14/13 (at 5 months and 1 day).
-Can get into crawling position. 
-Babbles like crazy. 
-Said "mama" 3 times in one night...hasn't said it since. :(
-If he's laying down and has something to pull on, he can pull himself up into the sitting position.
-Starts to mimick sounds back to us.
-On a good normal night he goes to bed between 7-7:30 and wakes up between 6-7:00. 
-We are still working on naps but we have came a LONG way this month. We were going from 4 20-30 minute naps a day to 2 1-1/2 hour naps and 1 30-45 minute nap. Much happier baby when he is well rested!!

This has been the best month so far...he has changed SO much and you see his little (BIG actually!) personality coming through.

Enjoy a few more pictures from the past few weeks:

True story: After this picture was taken, I took Cooper off of Reggie and Reg got up, mean mugged Cooper, then sat on the other side of the bed. Besties? Not quite yet...hahaha

Oh My Gawwwwd Mama!!

This picture melts my heart into a million pieces.
