Ashton is 5 months old!

Where is the time going? Seriously, 5 months already?

Ashton at 5 months is such a delight. He truly is such a happy baby. He loves to kick and play and talk. He is getting 5 bottles a day and 1 at night. He eats food twice a day. He has tried avocado, green beans, peas, squash, carrots, sweet potatoes and apples. He will eat them all, although he enjoys some more than others.

His night sleep is getting better but his days are getting worse. I know that day sleep develops last, so I am holding on to that fact knowing that it will get better. During the day we do what we can to make sure he does not get over tired. He is napping in the swing right now.

He is just the sweetest boy. He smiles at anyone who will smile at him. He is really starting to play with toys and rattles. This week he has particularly enjoyed watching himself in his play mirror.

This last picture displays how Ashton has looked for the better part of this month- hands in his mouth. We are still waiting for his first tooth to appear!
