My 5-Month Old

We made it back from my mom's house this afternoon. It felt weird to get home and then have Jay leave for work. Oliver slept until we got off the interstate. He actually fell asleep at Mom's, and stayed asleep while we put him in his car seat and left. He woke up and was in a silly mood. He was making lots of faces at me in the car!! (I always ride in the back with him during long car rides..actually for most car rides..but especially long ones because it just makes it so much easier.)

Oliver has been pretty sleepy since we got home. He took a couple of naps, and then was ready for bed at his usual time. Sometimes I'm amazed at how he has put himself on a schedule. I really didn't push one onto him, but rather watch his cues and established a routine from there. And I have to say, its worked out great!!

The picture of him with the blue blanket was right before I put him in the bath. He is such a cutie!!

I can't believe its been 5 months since he was born. At this time back in August, I was struggling to stay awake as Jay did most of the night time stuff with Oliver. I just couldn't stay awake!! Thankfully Oliver has a wonderful Daddy who was more than happy to spend that quiet (well, sometimes quiet!) time with his new baby. Sometimes it makes me very sad to see how much he has grown and changed. But then he does something new, and silly, and I'm just so happy that I don't have time to be upset.

Happy 5 month birthday, my precious baby boy....
