Leeland at 5 months!

WOW! Time truly is flying by and baby Leeland is growing up! Everyone said it happened fast, but I just had no idea.  He doesn't even like to be held like a baby anymore, he's very active and doesn't stop moving.  Even in his sleep he flops around. (Just like his daddy :0)

Here are some things that Leeland is doing at 5 months:

-Jumps when supported by someone or in his Johnny Jumper
- Eats solid foods twice a day.  The foods that he has tried are....
          Rice Cereal, Mixed Grain Rice Cereal & Oatmeal
          Green Beans, Peas, Sweet Potatos, Squash
          Carrots & Bananas
-Sleeps through the night.  Leeland goes to bed at 9pm and wakes up around 7am
-Can pick his pacifier up and put it in his mouth all by himself!
-Leeland went to his first football game on September 11, 2010.  Greensboro College VS Emory & Henry.  Unfortunately it rained and we were only able to stay for about a quarter and a half, and watched 1 quarter from the car. :0(
-Leeland can walk supported with Mommy holding his hands.  
-Leeland can get up on his knees and scoot a little but hasn't quite figured out what to do with his arms.
-Leeland can pet and play with the dog... He really enjoys yanking on her ears, and she always knows how to make him smile when he is upset.
-We're dealing with his GERD, and the medication is making things better! Hallelujah! 
-Leeland gives "hugs"... don't know that he thinks of it as a hug, but he wraps his arms around me and holds on tight. And I melt every time! 
 That's about all the new things so far.  This has been a great adventure.  I look forward to waking up each day to see what's in store for us.  I love being at home with Leeland and am enjoying every second, every minute and every day with my sweet sweet little boy! <3
