A 5-Month Update

We reached 5-months on Mother's Day, and your gift to me was the gift of sleeping in until 8 am instead of 6 am.  I soaked up every minute!  At five months you still wake up 1-2 times in the night and you and your brother are like little alarm clocks: waking up at 6 am even on weekends!  So you can imagine my happiness to roll over in bed, grab my phone and see the time was 8 am.  No wonder I felt so refreshed!

MaTAYto's 5-month tidbits:

You suddenly accepted your pacifier as we've been trying for months to get you to like it
You are now fully comfortable standing in your exersaucer without any extra padding, and you last about 15 minutes in it
You have found your "outside" voice: letting out high-pitched screams that seem to be for no reason at all (we joke that you scream like a girl - don't worry so does your brother!)
You've had a few upset reactions when your brother has played The Staring Game with you
Mama is considering starting you on early solids (banana, avocado, or baby cereal)
