My 5month Old

I can't believe he's 5 months old. In some ways it seems like he's been here forever (of course that is relative when you aren't sleeping), but he's just the perfect fit for our family.
**He has curly hair already -it's going to be wild once it grows in (as you can see)
**He has eaten solid foods since about 3 and 3/4 months old (to try to get some more calories and weight on him).
**He weighs only 10lbs 13 oz (he's tiny like his sisters - except Madison- seriously we don't know where she came from she's so big) - he's not a big eater.
**He doesn't sleep more than three hours between night feeding and maybe two if I'm lucky during the day (it would be great to get him and Madison on the same nap schedule one day).
**He's been sick twice (bad upper respiratory virus and now strep throat)- my heart aches for him and me.
**He LOVES his sisters (all of them) smiles and laughs for them constantly except when he's tired.
**He's definitely a momma's boy, loves his daddy but is definitely a momma's boy (he knows where the food source comes from).
**He's very sweet and pretty happy once you address his issues (he's a little demanding I have to say).
**All those things I've heard about boys (smells, noises, burps......all true with him)
**We can't imagine life with out him (or any of them......except the noise level at 5:00 at night might actually be audible in our house instead of deafening).
**I wouldn't change it for a thing except maybe some more sleep.
