Rockin' and Rollin' at 5 months

Eli loved hanging out on the dock at Rob's Parents where he celebrated his 5 month marker.

He wasn't quite rolling over yet, but it finally did happen at about 5 months and 1 week.

Other monumental 5 month happenings include:

Eli had the first vaccines ever of his young little life at 5 1/2 months. We got DTaP and HIB, to be followed next month with the prevnar vaccine. He did great, he only silent cried for a few moments and then slept then entire way home from the doctor's office. He never was cranky or ran a fever. I feel good to begin the vaccination process now and am really happy he did so well with his first round.

Eli also began eating and drinking other than at mom's cafe at 5 months and 3 weeks.

First came the sippy cup with water (and a splash of apple juice if Grandma got a hold of it)

and then came the rice cereal

he enjoys both, but his favorite by far is to drink out of a real cup that mom or dad is holding. Rob has doused him more than once with a big swig of water.

Eli also responds to his name, lifts up his hands to be picked up, and has found his feet! This little guy gets cooler and cooler with every passing month.

  1. he is so cute!! Ian doesn't respond to his name- probably because of the 8000 pet names we seem to have for him!!

    sorry we couldn't see you when we were in GA!
