5 month cub.

Here we are again!
Man, time really does fly!
My baby is 5 months old!  FIVE!

It's crazy that in just one month he'll be a half of a year.

He's still the best baby...nothing new there. :)
Here are his latest and greatest...

2 weeks after his 4 month check up, he had to have another check to make sure his ear infection was gone.  They weighed him at that appointment and he chunked in at 18 lbs 3 oz.  Some days I swear he weighs more than that.  My back kills me by the end of the day.  But I'll take it over worrying about whether my baby is growing or not!  Trust me...he's growing!

At that same appointment, his pediatrician kept commenting on his ear drums.  I kept fighting back the laughter...I don't know why but it was just so funny to me!  Multiple times (literally) she said how perfect his ear drums were.  Now I've had my share of Kameron compliments, but they usually go something like: 
"Oh, he's adorable!"
"Look at his gorgeous eyes!"
But never have I ever received, "His ear drums are beautiful!"
But hey...that's right!  My body made those beautiful, perfect ear drums. :)

He's got rolling down like no one's business.
Front to back to front to back...
He was very proud of himself when he did it on the bed for the first time since it wasn't a firm floor.

His naps have gone downhill a little bit since we moved to Santa Barbara.
He's still quite the champ at night time sleep, which I very much appreciate, but his naps are either too short or he just refuses them all together.

It's quite apparent Kameron likes to eat.
But recently other things are FAR more interesting than eating.
The kid cannot stop looking around at everything while eating.
He basically just snacks now since he gets so distracted.

He's been showing signs recently of teething.
Runny nose, red cheeks, SUPER irritable and inconsolable at times, and just goes to town gnawing on anything he can get his little hands on!
It comes and goes in waves so I'm just not sure when a tooth is going to poke its little head out!
We shall see...

We started a couple solids this month.
We started with rice cereal.  He liked it ok...he wasn't super into it.
But he seems to really like sweet potatoes!
We're still trying to get the swallowing aspect of eating solids down, but he seems to enjoy the taste!

Since moving in with my in laws, he's been really into their dog, Beau.
It's pretty cute!  Beau is just a puppy so sometimes he wants to play too hard for Kam, but when they're both being gentle with each's pretty heart melting.

Kameron is just a happy boy.
He loves to bounce, roll, laugh, play, grab, and look.
I feel so blessed to be his mother (even when he screamed for an hour straight at the DMV, which is a blog post all on its own) and I just love watching him grow.
