Fisher is 5 Months!

Fisher is 5 months! Here's what's been going on the past month:
  • He still loves being on his tummy and is great at rolling over although he doesn't use it to go anywhere. He just rotates in a circle most of the time.
  • He really likes the pups now. He likes to watch them and let them lick his hands. He even giggles at Maeby and has started pulling their hair. Fun. 
  • He still likes to move around as much as possible. He likes to stand up in his new jumparoo and he squirms like crazy while in his crib or on the ground.
  • He is still working on his sitting up. He does really well in the bumbo.
  • The drooling continues.
  • He isn't classified as a "thumb-sucker", but he definitely chews his thumb and fingers. 
  • He is reaching for EVERYTHING. He has found the joy of pulling hair...even beards when available.
  • He really loves grabbing his feet. He especially pulls on them during diaper changes. 
  • We are still waiting on more hair. It's there, but it is so light it is hard to see. 
  • He is sleeping through the night great these days. Bedtime is around 7:15/7:30 and we are usually up at 7:30am.
  • He started rice cereal. It is a complete mess, but he seems to like it. He just can't always eat it successfully. 

This month's activities consisted of:
  • Fisher attended his first wedding (and took his first long car trip) and looked like a stud. Our friends, Lauren and Dwayne, got married in Chicago.
  • He had his first and second visit to a zoo. The first was the Chicago Zoo and the second was in Nashville. He doesn't notice the animals, but he seems to enjoy people watching. 
  • Fisher was also dedicated this month on Septmeber 30th. His life verse is:"For we are God's masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago." Ephesians 2:10
  • He attended his Aunt Heather's surprise 30th birthday party. Well, he was there...just sleeping upstairs most of the time.
  • He also supported us in Memphis while we did the Color much fun! Even though he was kept away from the colorful powder, Fisher still had blue boogers, blue hands and blue drool. Nice.

Well to say I'm amazed at how quickly he is growing is an understatement. I love being a mommy to Fisher and get such joy from watching him learn and develop each day. I really couldn't be more blessed. 

Here are some more pictures from the past month of Fisher's life:
