Five Months

Can you believe it?  

I think Cullen weighs about 15 pounds now.  He is growing, growing, growing!  He changes everyday.  I love watching what he will do next!

What Cullen's Up To Now:

As you probably know, we started solid foods this month.  We tried oatmeal first...Cullen is not really a fan, so we gave up on that for now.  A couple of days ago we tried squash.  Fresh from GG and Papa G's garden.  Day 1 of squash: unimpressed.  Day 2 of Squash: He loved it!  He kept pulling the spoon to his mouth for more!  After another day or two of squash, we will try peaches...fresh from the local orchard.

Cullen is almost sitting on his own!  He will for about 5 seconds or so before he falls sideways or forward.  

Reaching for what he wants.  Well...not really reaching.  More leaning his whole body in the direction of what he wants.  (Which is probably part of why he falls on his face after sitting for more than a few seconds.)

What Cullen Likes:

Talking/Squealing.  His newest thing is to screech velociraptor-style.  At first it is adorable and hilarious.  Then it is kind of obnoxious because it is very difficult to carry on a conversation with that going on.  (Silly boy already knows he is the center of everyone's attention and apparently intends to keep it that way at all times.)

Bath time!  This is quite a change from last month. Until about a week ago, Cullen just sat in the water with a look on his face that said "I'm a boy.  Boys don't bathe.  Get me out of here."  Now, he has discovered the bath toys and is content to chew on a crab and kick his feet in the water.

Eating people.  If Cullen can get to your face, the first thing he is going to do is chew on your nose.  It is hilarious!

The remote.  It is his favorite thing to hold/look at/talk to.  (He has a remote that is his very own at my parents' house.)  My mom sent me this picture a few days ago:

I love how much fun it is to be around this cutie these days.  He's not that cuddly little newborn anymore, but he has so much personality for such a little person!
