5 months

Fynn turned 5 months at the beginning of the month, but things have been so crazy as I transition into my new job that I haven't had time to blog about it.  He's rolling over easily these days, starting to scoot around (he rarely remains on the activity mat these days!), can reach for toys and his pacifier and manipulate them into his mouth, and will be crawling before any of us is ready! He babbles, laughs and giggles, loves to smile at his big sis, and likes to have 'conversations' back and forth with us. We started him on solids (at night mostly), and so far he's had rice and oatmeal cereals, squash (good), peas (really good), sweet potatoes (super good), and green beans (not a fave). He doesn't eat much at a time, but he's getting better every night. His teething has been especially hard at times lately, but as of this morning, it appears that his first baby tooth may actually be breaking through (thank goodness)! He's still getting up every few hours at night, mostly due to the teething as far as I can tell, and he's still in a bassinet in our bedroom as attempts to move him into the crib in the same room with Mia have been unsuccessful. Both of our kiddos appear to be not-so-good sleepers, so putting them in the same room has been a bit of a nightmare. It looks like miss Mia may be moving to the main floor into a room of her own sooner rather than later (yikes!). At bath time, he kicks and splashes all over the place, and loves to scoot his bottom off of the plastic holding piece at the bottom of the tub so that he's submerged as much as possible (which makes it awfully difficult to actually bathe him!). I think we're going to have to do a mommy-baby swim class this winter, because he seems to really like the water!  He's growing like a weed - this week he started wearing 9 month rompers! He's going to be tall! We still can't believe how sweet of a baby he is - the only time he gets fussy is when his teeth are really bothering him. On that note, I'm off to go cuddle him a bit before the hubby and I sneak off for a date night tonight!
