Can you believe I am 5 months old?

Hi everyone, this is C. I haven't written in a long time, I think it was when I was about 2 weeks old actually.

I am 5 months old now - boy time flies! I am a slobber boy who loves to stand up and I'm trying to sit up by myself too. I'm 1/2 way there, I do some good crunches! I learned to roll over last month, so that's old news.

My hair started falling out a month or so ago and it just fell out all over the place except right on top. So I still have my same hair up there that I always did and it's getting really long and floppy. Then I just have some fuzzy hair everywhere else, kind of like a baby duck or chick or something. So, I don't have the most stylish hair right now. But it doesn't bother me too much if it doesn't bother you.

I had fun at Christmas time. I laughed a lot and learned a new squaking sound. I usually do my squak when I'm happy, but I decided to try it on Mommy last night when I was mad. She let me get away with it a couple of times, but then she decided that was a "NO Sir!" and so far I haven't tried it anymore today. She clapped her hands loud at me when I did it mad - I think that will put a stop to me trying that again (ya think?)

I'm sleeping really good. You oughta see me! I take about 4 naps each day and sleep all night from about 8:30 at night till 7:30 or 8 in the morning. I like my sleep. I fit right in perfectly with my family.

I still haven't started eating food yet, just Similac Sensitive. But I think I'm getting ready to try food. I am really interested in watching my family eat food, it intrigues me. Plus I've started learning to make chewing motions, I look like a cow chewing the cud! The doctor told Mommy and Daddy to hold off on starting food with me since I am a preemie. I really should be a month younger than I am (if that even makes sense!) so I guess I'll have to wait a little longer. I heard Mommy and Daddy talking, though, and I think they're going to start giving me some rice cereal soon! I still spit up a lot, so I'll bet that's going to be gross - hee hee hee hee!

Well I've got to go back to sleep, a growing boy needs his rest you know! Talk to you soon.

Oh, here's a new picture of me. I'm pretty cute, huh? Look at my little foot sticking up there! I LOVE those guys!

Oh my goodness he's adorable. We have to get out there to see you guys again.

I'm so impressed with his sleep. Can he come teach Isabel his need for sleep. She's such a mover she'd never nap if it was up to her.

Have fun with the cereal.

C, you are good at blogging! You should tell your Mommy to let you try it more often! :o) You're so very cute too! I hope to meet you in person before you're grown!

No, C, I can't believe you are five months anymore than I can believe your buddy Cara is 6!
Do you love your "pod" as much as Cara does her's?
Tell Mom that Cara isn't getting solids either...for as long as I can put it off. Her pediatrician says that you little preemies don't need it until 8 or nine months.

I found your blog through facebook. I also have a blog but like many other bloggers worldwide--mine is a struggle to keep up.
I was so moved and touched by your and David's story. Could there be any other explanation other than God for you guys getting your baby boy. I am so happy and glad for you.
I hope things are going well for you. I can't imagine the adjustments you guys are making---but all completely worth it.
Expect MIracles!
