Little Man is 5 months


We can hardly believe that Jacoby is 5 months today!! He's a growing boy and weighs almost 17 pounds and is 28 inches, he's a big kid. He's wearing 6-9 month clothes now. I feel like I always need to try outfits on him to make sure he hasn't grown out of something and will actually be able to wear to wear stuff more than a few times, but he's not a fan of dress up. We love Jacoby so much, he brings so much joy to our lives. He's finally starting to sleep a little better, wakes up once or twice at night and probably once a week will sleep all night long! I love those mornings, I feel so good! :) Jacoby loves toys now and will shake his rattles and suck on just about anything he can get to his mouth. He is a big time drooler and slobbers all over the place. He is in love with baths now and kicks like crazy to make splashes. About two weeks ago we started feeding him rice cereal at nights and he's doing really well with that, but is SO messy, I've gotta post some pictures of him, he's crazy! He's also discovering his little feet and loves to grab hold of them and play with them. He's becoming an expert roller, but gets frustrated when he's stuck and can't roll back over. He's still in love with his binkie, and we are a fan too. Whatever makes him happy, makes us VERY happy. He's sleeping in his crib in his bedroom now and it still makes me sad at nights to not have him in our room with us, but I sleep so much better and so does he. (Not Tyler, he could sleep through anything, doesn't matter.) Most recently he's finally acting interested when we're eating and he starts smackin' his gums. We love you Jacoby, you're the BEST!
