Five Month Birthday! June 21st-27th

I turned five months old this week!  My folks can't believe how quickly time has flown by already.  Mommy always comments to Daddy about how big and heavy I'm getting.  Uh, Mom...that's what I'm supposed to do...grow.

I'm getting really good at rolling over.  Mommy puts me down for "tummy time" and I roll over my left side right away.  I guess it's a way for me to avoid tummy practice.  Mommy has resorted to putting a stuffed doggy (my wrestling buddy) down by my left side to prevent me from rolling over.  So what have I started doing instead?  Rolling over my right side.  It's not as easy for me to do as the left side, but I'm getting the hang of it.

Here I am on the way over.

Look at me here.  I take after my Mommy.  She used to do this when she was a baby too.   Mmmm...toes are tasty.  I sure am flexible!

Daddy decided to play with my hair during one of my bath times.

Mommy thinks I look like my Uncle Jonathan here when he was younger.

Mommy bought me this new teether.  I'm going to town on it.  Yum yum yum!

I had a play date with James on Thursday.  He's the son of one of Mommy's coworkers, Auntie Cambria.  I wasn't sure about her but I let her take a picture with me.

When I got a bit more comfortable, I was willing to sit next to James.  He's six weeks older than me, like my buddy Alex, but much bigger (his parents are really tall).  When I first arrived, he was sooo excited to see me...he started squealing and smiling.  I didn't know what to do so I cried.  I'm checking him out here though.  Auntie Cambria had to hold me up, as I can't sit on my own yet.

The mommies decided to strip us down to compare rolls. I TOLD you James was big!  He weighs 22 lbs already!  Mommy says he's solid.  I don't know what that makes me then.

On Friday I had a play date with my buddy Alex again.  I'm not sure what he's doing here, but I don't think it's ok.  The mommies were laughing at us though.  I feel violated again!

Alex looks all innocent here.  Yeah right...we know what you did to me.

Finally, a shot with some overalls Grandma bought me.  Weeee!


  1. Looks like you and Mommy are both enjoying the summer break. Love all the baby pics and baby rolls.

  2. I love the look on Elliot's face as he devours the teething ring. And I think Alex is using Elliot's head as a teething ring :P

  3. So small yet making friends already!
