Happy 5 Months Michael!

What Michael is up to at five months old:
- This has been a busy month for us. With a doctor appointment, a trip to Disney World, Christmas celebrations and new years, we are ready for things to calm down a little.
- Michael had a doctor appointment on December 14th. The doctor said he is doing really well, and that he is a healthy baby. He is getting so big and doing great. He now weighs 16.72 pounds and is 25.75 inches long.
- He is now wearing size 3 diapers and is about to outgrow his 3-6 month clothes.
- He still has not rolled over yet, and doesn't seem very interested in doing so. He is, however, able to sit unsupported on the floor and play with his toys. He is also able to sit up in his high chair and in a shopping cart.
- Still no teeth either. I think it could be any day now, but who knows...
- We moved him up to his "big boy" car seat this month. He hadn't fully outgrown his baby carrier, but it was getting so heavy to carry around. He has adjusted well to the new car seat, and seems to really like all the extra room he has.
- We took Michael to the Christmas Parade here in town. It was a cold morning, but we bundled him up nice and warm. His cousins, Clara, Lindy and Charlie were in the parade.
- The weekend before Christmas, Andrew's parents took the whole family to Disney World. He did great during the 9 hour car ride. We had a great time, and are looking forward to taking Michael back when he is a little older and can enjoy it more. He slept in his stroller a lot, but he did wake up for the fireworks, and seemed to really enjoy them. He would stare up at the sky and smile.
- Having Michael here for Christmas was such a blessing. We were even lucky enough to have a white Christmas this year. He got spoiled by all of our family, and has lots of new toys to play with.
- Michael continues to bring so much joy to our lives, and we love him so much! There is not a day that goes by, that we are not extremely thankful to have him as our son!
