We are starting to see more of his personality and we just think he's going to be a goofball. He is silly and I swear he likes to make us laugh. He's very social and his favorite thing to do is to talk and hang out with us.
He's such a happy little guy who gives the biggest smiles, but doesn't giggle. It's just funny because he makes sounds and sometimes let's out a little chuckle, but mostly he just smiles big.
He definitely has his mama's temperament and can go from SO happy to SO mad in about 2 seconds. For the most part, he's super happy and easy-going, but when he's mad he's MAD. (Which seriously perfectly describes me, ha!)
I'm always in denial leading up to his "monthly birthday" and just keep telling him "you're only five months old!" instead of you're almost 6 months old. Slow down time!!!!
Anyway, here are some highlights from his fifth month:
-On September 19 (his 5 month birthday!) he tried food for the first time and ate some sweet potatoes. I was soooo nervous for some reason, like seriously SHAKING when I gave him his first bite... but he just loved it! He acted like he's been eating solids all along. He seriously cracks me up!
He just LOVES food though. Every time he sees the spoon he just opens his mouth SOOO wide. He can't get enough of it.
I DIE over the sound he makes when he chews. He's always made that sound, but it's come out even more now that he eats. He is so funny!
He doesn't really care what you feed him, he'll eat it. I would say he doesn't "love" peas or spinach, but he still eats it!
He LOVES eating puffs. He totally "chews" on them and it's the cutest thing.
-He's been grabbing his toes for awhile now but I've been waiting for him to stick them in his mouth. He FINALLY did it on October 11th. SO dang cute.
We tried to see if he would grab the candy from the cauldrons, because he really is such a grabby boy, but he just seemed confused. Sweet boy! We sure love this little turtle and can't wait to dress him up in this costume a few more times this month with about a million more pictures!!
|He got a little hot so we had to take off part of his costume|
-Grandpa and Grandma Richins got Charlie the CUTEST converse and he wore them for the first time. I was worried his chubby feet wouldn't fit, but we somehow squeezed them in. :) He looked SO cute and so grown up! We decided he had to go out looking so fancy so we walked around the Lehi outlets and drove past our Draper temple.
-This past week or so Charlie has started to get a little bit SNUGGLY when he's tired and we are basically dying over it. He's usually just SO wiggly and doesn't stop moving, but when he's sleepy he will lay his head on your shoulder for about 20 seconds before he remembers that he wants to wiggle.
-Charlie is getting pretty good at sitting up, and is doing even better now that we got him a new toy (an activity table, but we took the legs off for now). I just can't believe how BIG he is getting!
-He is getting even more interactive and social. He absolutely LOVES to play and sing songs and read books. He has always been chatty too, but I swear lately he's been even more chatty. He always has something to say. He'll even have little "conversations" with us.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar is still his favorite.
And last but not least, a
few million random pictures and videos that are just way too cute...
|He loves sitting like this with daddy!|
|He is also fascinated by the controller|
