Chase will be five months old on Wednesday. He can sit for a little while unassisted before toppling over. And he also loves to be held. Ashlyn definitely keeps him entertained, and I love watching him watch her as she runs all over the place.
Nursing is still going well. I think I will wait until next month to start solids. For a couple of reasons. ONE - he seems to be doing fine with just milk. TWO - I have been reading articles about waiting until 6 months to introduce solids. THREE (and maybe this is the biggest reason) - we are already really busy with a baby and 2 year old. The craziness usually starts around 5pm. It's already a hectic time of day - home from work, dinner, baths, pajamas, stories, bedtime. I am not overly eager to add another item to that agenda. So we will wait another month.
I love rocking him at night before bedtime. He just stares at me with those sweet, innocent eyes and smiles as he is drifting off to sleep. Melts my heart. What can I say - I'm in love.
Here is Chase at 5 months.
And Ashlyn at 5 months.
