June 22, 2011 - High Five

I tried to take Noah's 5-month picture with him sitting up, but he kept trying to eat the sign and then he would cry when it fell down. So it turned out like this:

We had to go for a laying down shot, like when Grace was 5 months old too!, in order to get a good picture of him:

At five months old, Noah tries to sit up by himself and likes to be standing as well. He has been eating rice cereal for a few days now, each day doing a little bit better, and he is sleeping longer stretches at night finally (a couple of times up to 8 1/2 hours!). He has a cold so isn't feeling 100%, but manages to smile a lot anyway. This morning he tried to use a sippy cup for the first time, but instead of drinking the water I think he was just teething on the spout.

He must weigh somewhere around 18 or 19 lbs and seems quite tall to me. He is wearing 9-12 month size clothes almost exclusively. He continues to love things that make noise and thinks everything his sister does is pretty wonderful.

Coincidentally, I picked up Noah's American Passport and Consular Report of Birth Abroad (CRBA) today; the CRBA is proof that even though he was born abroad he was an American at birth. It will be a very important document come the day he decides to launch his campaign for President. If Americans think Obama is a questionable case, wait until they meet this Kenyan-born Danish-American!

Happy 5 months, buddy! We love you!
