The day after Christmas was Trip's 5 month birthday. As you can see from the pictures, he is getting much more active and interested in the world around him. He was not wanting to sit still to have his picture taken! Here are some updates:
- He is enjoying playing with toys, watching the dogs, and talking to lights.
- He is laughing so much more than he was just a couple of weeks ago, which is really fun.
- Trip is working hard on sitting up too. Sometimes he can sit independently for a few seconds at a time.
- He is also very interested in food. He likes to watch people eat and especially loves the blue water bottles that I use every day. He has been eating solids most evenings. So far he has had rice cereal, sweet potatoes, and carrots. He has been getting tired of the rice cereal lately so more vegetables and some fruits will definitely be on the menu in the near future.
Looking at his favorite light fixture in our living room- he likes it whether the light is on or not.
Telling his monkey some secrets.
Checking out that light again!
Trip's first experience with rice cereal- he insisted on putting his hands in his mouth and therefore had cereal all over his face, hands, and hair. Fortunately, he isn't that messy on a regular basis, but I know we have many messier meals to come when he starts feeding himself!
