James at 5 months

I say he is 5 months old because he was born 20 weeks ago. Anyway, here are some things that I want to remember about him at this age:

* he wakes up in such a good mood...almost always smiling before his eyes open
* he really enjoys playing in his exersaucer or on a blanket on the floor
* he is starting to giggle when he finds a noise funny
* he seems to like rice cereal
* he is wearing 6-9 month clothes
* he still has difficulty falling asleep when he is too tired
* he recognizes his mommy and daddy
* he sleeps from 8PM-4AM then drinks a quick bottle and goes back to sleep until about 7
* he has decided that he does not want to be buckled in his carseat anymore and always arches his back when we try to put him in...he also cries most of the time he is in the car
* he discovered his hands and sucks on them constantly, he tries to suck on his toes but his legs are too long to reach his mouth
* all of his little quirks add up to make him a wonderfully unique little person and the joy of our lives. :)

I cant imagine the rides in your car.. Is he rear facing still?
I hope he changes his mind soon, he seems like such a great lil chap otherwise! eheee

Yes Angi, he still faces the back. I think that's part of the problem because he tends to be pretty happy in the car if someone sits with him. We have also discovered that he can be distracted with toys in the car, so that helps too!

Hey, So cool that he sleeps so well for you. Must say I'm a bit jealous.
