Had To Share

I came across this on the internets today. It's rare I find something worth sharing, but I thought this was good.

5 Months Old

My baby is 5 months old today. Where has the time gone? He is getting so big, and cute. He has changed so much the last month.

-He still isn't sleeping through the night, but he has been great about taking naps. In his crib!!

-He has gotten quite proficient at rolling, and can now move all over the place.

-He has warmed up to the camera a little. I've been able to get a few pictures of him smiling lately.

-He is pretty happy, and smiley most of the time. He loves when people talk to him.

-Gabby gave him his very first bottle of formula this weekend. I was happy I was able to make it to this point without supplementing. I wasn't able to pump enough milk for my trip, and I wanted to see how he would take the formula before I left. He took it like a champ. The boy isn't picky about his food.

Vegas, Baby!!

We are going to Vegas next week. I have been in denial about this trip, because I just don't feel ready to leave my baby. Since this is a work trip for my husband we planned it months ago, before Nathan was even born. It's hard to turn down a trip that is 75% free. Especially when it's to your favorite place. I *think* this will be trip number 8 in 4 1/2 years.

I also found out that my friend/hairstylist (her husband works for the same company) is going too. So this week I finally started to get excited. We talked about what we would do all day while our husbands are working, and have even planned some crazy Vegas hair-jinx.

I am still nervous about leaving my baby, but it's only for 2 days. I know he will be in good hands. So I am going to go, and have fun. I promise to only call to check on him twice a day.

A Few Recent Pictures

I realize I haven't been blogging much lately. I guess I've had a little bit of bloggers block. I always think about things I want to blog about, but then can't find the motivation to actually do it. Hopefully March will be a better month.

Here are a couple of pictures from this weekend. We walked down to the park, and enjoyed the semi warm weather. I've mentioned I have a hard time getting Nathan to smile for the camera as you can see from these looks that hasn't changed. My husband seems to have an even harder time than me. I had him take like 20 pictures of me with Nathan and he's not even looking at the camera in any of them. Oh well, he's still cute right?

4 Month Stats

Nathan had his 4 month appointment today. It was supposed to be two weeks ago, but the Dr office cancelled again. Anyway everything went good. He didn't like laying on the exam table and kept trying to roll away, but he only cried for a minute when he got his shots. He only had to get two shots since they have all of the combo ones now. He got the DTaP, Hib, Polio, and Pcv. We are waiting on the HepB, and skipped the Rotovirus. Here are his stats.

Head Circumference: 17 1/4 inches
Weight: 16lbs 13oz
Height: 26 1/2 inches
