It's been awhile and he is now 5 months old!

So this post is a month old but wanted to post it anyway!

Sorry that I haven't posted in almost a month. Time really does fly. Evan turned 5 months old this week.

What a busy month it has been. We kicked off the month with Evan's 4 month pictures. Sandi Heinrich is the photographer who has been helping us chronicle Evan's life is AMAZING. We have so much fun taking the pictures which seems to be evident when looking at them.

Evan's first Hanukkah was a success! He got more gifts then he knows what to do with and all he really wanted was the wrapping paper to eat :) He has changed the way Isaac and I look at the holiday for sure. It will just be more and more fun the older he gets.

We saw Evan roll over for the first time (and haven't really seen it since). He is trying to roll a lot but not all the way there. Evan is also grabbing at EVERYTHING! My hair, lips, noses, glasses, you name it he will take it and put it in his mouth or try to.

We heard Evan say "Bah". He says it a lot! Even at 4 am when he wakes up :) Speaking of sleep I can say that we are having more great nights then not. He goes down around 7pm and is waking up around 4am. He may be up anywhere from 5 minutes to 45 minutes but goes back down until about 7am. Now if only Isaac and I can sleep like that.

Other milestones we have hit over the month were: Evan sitting up more and more by himself, loves playing in his exersaucer and jumparoo. Peek-a-boo is a favorite and gets laughs every time. We try reading to him but all Evan wants to do is eat the book.

We will be starting food with Evan once he hits 6 months. Since he has such sensative skin he is more prone ot food allergies so we need to be careful. I am going to try and make some of his food myself and see how that goes. He seems ready now! We are waiting for that first tooth to break through but who knows when that will happen.
We are getting ready to embark on our first family trip and so excited! We are sure the airplane ride will be an experience we will not forget, good or bad. Evan will get to meet so many cousins and friends I don't think we will be holding him much, except for the diaper changes of course.
