5 Month Stats

Matthew had his 5 month check up today. He gained a whole pound since last month, he's up to 15lbs (apparently sweet potatoes are fattening!) and grew about a quarter of an inch to 26 and a quarter inches. Matthew is always the center of attention when we bring him to the doctor's office - all the nurses love him! Who can resist this face!

Houston We Have A Thumbsucker! And A Tooth!!!

Matthew, the master of shoving his entire hand into his mouth, has suddenly realized that it's easier to just suck on one of his fingers - he has found his thumb! He still jams his whole hand in there occasionally, but every once in a while he settles for just the thumb. He was bouncing like crazy when I took this pic so it's not the best quality - but you get the idea! We also found out why our usually good sleeper has been cranky and fussy the past few nights - a tooth is breaking through his bottom gums!

PS - Ignore the large gash on his head - in his attempts to fight his sleep Matthew rubs and scratches his face like crazy. And no matter how short we cut his nails, or how well we file them, he still manages to do some pretty good damage.

Bye Bye Pooh Hat

We bought this hat as a part of his "coming home" outfit. It was HUGE on him back then. Now, it's just a tad too small for Ish's growing head! On to the next cute hat.

Big Boy Car Seat

Sometime in the next few weeks we'll transition Ish to his big boy car seat - right now he's about an inch too short for the straps to work properly. Here he is, trying it out - he looks pretty happy about it!
