July 13th marked Shortcake's 5 month birthday. He is still as happy a guy as ever, although he is much less content to just sit in favor of trying to get at things and contort himself into all sorts of odd positions.
This month we tried some cereal for the first time. He followed right in his sisters' footsteps and happily ate it all. He usually eats once a night and will wake once in a while for a pacifier insertion.
A record was set right around his five month mark with a 12 hour stretch of sleep. He is up to 18 pounds and is wearing a size three diaper and more nine month clothes. He is getting better and and better at his eye-hand coordination with toys and his pacifier. So fun to watch him grow and develop.
