Grayson at 5 Months Old!!

I cannot believe my baby boy is 5 months old! Where does the time go? Grayson is quite the wiggle worm and a big Momma's boy! He has the biggest smile and the sweetest laugh, he is just a happy baby! He is so smart and is a speedy learner. I love to watch him play in the new activity center Grams bought just fascinates me! We started him on solids {baby food & cereal} and he is doing great so far. He loves the food! I stopped putting cereal in his bottles last week since he's doing so well with baby food. He loves strolling & shopping with Mommy! He just looks around at everything and smiles. I bought G his first pair of New Balance tennis shoes {10.26}, they look so cute on him! His hair is growing back really fast, thank goodness :) Since Grayson is rolling over all the time I decided to no longer swaddle him at night {10.26}, it worked great for 1 week then he randomly started waking up in the middle of the night. We think it is because he gets cold so we got a tower heater & started using it at night {we programmed it to keep the room temp at 75-it cut off when the room temp reached 75 & cut on when it dropped below 75} and I also started swaddling him again. It worked so I am going to let him be and try to wean him from the swaddle in a few weeks. I still rock him every night before bed, and will continue to do so as long as I can :)
