5 Months

This was a rough month but James seems to have turned over a new leaf as soon as he turned 5 months old so hopefully that will continue through his entire 5th month. This month James started standing on his legs when we hold him up. He gets very excited about his accomplishments when he does this. He can also wiggle and roll around on his blanket on the floor to get to whatever toys he wants to play with.
James is talking more and giggling. He continues to find new sounds he can make and repeats them constantly (even at 3am). His current sound is a high pitched squeal. He also buries his head into your shoulder when he laughs-like he's so pleased with himself. It is very cute.
We took James for his first sick visit to the doctor (he ended up not really being sick). He had kept us awake for hours at a time in the middle of the night for a week so we thought he might have an ear infection. He didn't. About a week later he found his ear and has started playing with his ear...I don't think it's infected but now he is showing one of the signs!
Because of Thanksgiving we have done a lot of traveling. James did great! His sleep hasn't been too disrupted and he put up with sitting in his carseat for 6 hours at a time. He also got to meet lots of new people.
James also got to see his first snow!
