Almost 5 Months Old!

I can't believe Liam is almost 5 months old! Really? Seriously? Let's see the doctor okayed me giving Liam cereal, so I started giving him rice cereal a couple weeks ago. He was still waking up every two hours, so doc said it was okay if I got a little sleep. LOL. He seems to like it, and there hasn't been any wierd rashes or anything so he's probably not allergic. (Thank goodness, can you imagine an Asian being allergic to rice?) Brutal. It really does seem like he's sleeping better, he has been going almost 4 hour stretches for the most part. I am enjoying that!

He is also really starting to like his toys (we call them chew toys). At first I was a little scared, because he never really seemed interested in anything. As of the past few weeks, he is now reaching for stuff (even stuff he shouldn't like power cords), and he really likes to hold his toys, and his mommy's hair. He also love to suck on the label on the side of his boppy pillow, it is so funny to watch him try to get it in his mouth. He is also rolling like crazy. I turn my back for a second, and he's all the way across the living room floor. We moved the coffee table out of the living room, and spread a big comforter on the floor so he just rolls around like a little jelly bean. He was getting to big for his bassinette, and he started to grab the sides of it and pull himself up, so I was a little worried that he would pull himself over.... so, last night was the first night in his big crib. We moved it into our bedroom, and he didn't seem to have a problem with being in it. Pretty cool....

On to the mom situation! Mom found a place in Franklin, which is not so bad, but it is a little bit of a drive for her. I think as soon as everything is moved and settled, she will be able to start the healing process.


  1. He sure is getting big! And he';s still too cute!

  2. Glad to hear things are going better for your mom! Love the pics of Liam! Such a cutie!
    I am jealous your little guy is rolling! i still have a few months to go for my little man...although out of the blue he started sleeping 6 to 7 hours so maybe that will happen for Liam in his big boy crib...

  3. Before you know it, he will be a real "mover and shaker".

    I liked that 3-6 month period.
    The time really goes by so fast though! Enjoy him while he is young. You are lucky you can put the time into his care like you do!

    Glad to hear your Mom is doing ok.
    I am glad she found a place, now she just has to make it her own!

    I put the BBC August Challenge up if you are interested.

  4. He is getting so big! He is adorable.

  5. Even cuter now! They get big so fast - enjoy these little moments while you can!

  6. He sure is getting big! Thanks for sharing pix, he's such a doll. Glad to hear your mom is moving forward in her life. Take care, hey did you join BBC for August? I gotta go look who's all joined since I signed up.
