5 months

How in the world can Ace be 5 months already??? He should still be my snuggly little newborn. But every single day, I'm getting a glimpse of a silly, wiggly, full fledged little boy. Ace is up to a lot these days! In this pic we were trying a little photo shoot. He is a mover and a shaker, so we didn't get that many great shots.
Bath time is still a favorite activity. He loves the water and kicks and splashes for a long time!
Yet again, I was trying to get some cute pictures and this is the result. Let me eat your camera, Mama!
Per his usual, Ace is a great eater. We stopped breastfeeding at 4 months, so he is getting formula plus baby food. So far, he has had: carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, avocado, peaches, blueberries, applesauce, pears, mangoes, apricots, bananas, and squash. He seems to love them all. He uses his mesh feeder to eat watermelon and cantaloupe.

Ace is trying all sorts of new things. He so badly wants to sit up. He is very, very close, but his little behind seems to be too round still.
Whoops! Thank goodness Daddy was right next to him to play catcher!
Ace is weighing in somewhere between 18-19 lbs. Still sleeping from 6:30ish to 6:30ish. He will through a curve ball every once and a while and wake up in the middle of the night. Last night he was up about every 2 hours. Hope that doesn't last! He is a pro at rolling over. True to our family tradition, he has about a million nicknames; which are: Acey, Acer, Aceyroni, Aceyronei and Cheese, Scooch, Scoochers, Scoochie, Poops, Poopsie. There are probably more that I can't remember! He has no teeth yet, but drools buckets and loves to chew on anything.

I'm so proud to be your Mama, Ace! You are so fun and I love getting to know you better every day. Happy 5 months, big man!
