5 months!!!

I can't believe it's already time for our 5 month photo shoot! I think I captured so much of his personality that he is developing in these precious pictures....

At 5 months here are some random notes about our sweet baby G:

*He is a great eater. The only baby food we have tried on him that he isn't crazy about is peas. But he will eat everything else. Bananas, peaches, pears, squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans, prunes, apples. Here's hoping he won't turn into a picky eater. :)
*He is rolling over from tummy to back....although mommy & daddy have yet to actually witness it...we know he can. He is really close to being able to roll from back to tummy...he gets really close.
*He is so close to sitting up on his own without any props.
*He goes down for the night pretty easily, around 6:30 and usually only gets up one time during the night...then gets up around 6am to head to work with daddy.
*He LOVES to jump in the jumparoo and door frame jumper. It's safe to say it's his favorite activity (except eating). 
*He smiles ALL the time and babbles, coos, and speaks his own language.
*He has finally discovered his feet and LOVES to touch his toes. He will lay on his back and grab both of his feet and rock back and forth (a pretty impressive yoga pose).
*He is wearing a variety of size clothes at the present moment. Learning that every brand differs...the average size he is wearing right now is 9 month (he can wear some 6 month things, and as high up as 12 month).
*He has his hands in his mouth all the time. We try a pacifier and he really doesn't want it....just his fingers.
*He spits up...A LOT and we are trying some different methods of correcting that. Some days it's minimal...and some days we wonder if he kept anything down. We never hold him without some sort of protective barrier! LOL! If anyone else wants to hold him...a disclaimer is always given.
*He is such a happy baby and is growing like a weed. We have a big boy on our hands.

Gavin, mommy & daddy love you so much! You have changed our lives and we are so honored that we get to be your parents. God gave us an angel and we promise to never take you for granted.

*ADOPTION FINALIZATION UPDATE - we are still in the waiting stages of the finalization to be scheduled...we are hoping for June....but we will have to wait and see. I promise to keep you all posted.

Thank you all for following us along and sharing in our joy. It's such a honor to share every step of this with all of you!
