5 months

It is pretty hard to believe Cayden is already 5 months and I could not be more blessed to have a baby like him...he is seriously one of the happiest babies! Everyone is always telling me how he is always smiling and is so happy! I am really grateful and am trying to enjoy it as much as possible because who knows how our other children are going to be....but I defiantly think Cayden is going to take after me and be a little entertainer..he makes us laugh a ton!

The other day I was going through pictures on my phone and came across this one...we took this while he was still in the NICU just a couple days after he was born...I still can't get over how tiny he was and to see how much he has grown is so much fun..







We did some at home weighing and measuring and we think he is somewhere around 15 pounds and around 24 inches...
5 fun things about Cayden:
-He is learning to sit by himself as you can see from the pics above
-Loves to sleep on his side
-wants any type of drink you have! And if you are holding him he will try and grab it from you and drink it! (he has done that to me a few times)
-He is starting to play with toys which is not only fun to watch but also great when I need him to be distracted.
-He loves mirrors! He will look at himself and smile and laugh..I think he knows its him or so I would like to believe..

Your baby is seriously advanced in the gross motor skills area. I can't believe he is already starting to sit on his own! He is so cute and I totally think he looks like your mom. I wanna see him in person so bad...he and Macy could be great friends.
