5 Months!

Carson is turning into a crazy little baby.
He is no longer my sweet newborn that lays around all day.
He wants to talk and scream all the time and grab everything he sees (usually my face or hair).

-He is weighing in at 14 lbs 14 oz (25th percentile).
-He is still in size 3-6 month clothes (and some 6 month) and size 2 diapers.
-Carson is now falling asleep on his own thank goodness.  We got in the bad habit about two months ago of holding him until he fell asleep, but he has luckily adjusted back to his easygoing newborn ways.
-He still goes to sleep around 8:30 or 9 and sleeps until around 5:00.  He eats and goes back to sleep until about 8:00.  However, the past 2 nights he has woken up a little later than 6 and gone back down for a few hours.  I'm hoping this will be his new schedule!
-Carson is still awful at taking naps.  I am pretty much to the point where I don't believe a nap longer than 40 minutes can ever exist.  We are trying to cut out his 4th nap right now.
-He tried baby oatmeal for the first time about a week after he turned 4 months.  He has now tried carrots and sweet potatoes and loves both!  I try to feed him solids 1-2 times a day.
-Carson is crazy around Steve and me but is actually a very shy, observant baby in public.  He never cries when we are out and loves to just watch people and see what is going on.  It makes getting out with a baby pretty easy!
