Happy 5 months Louis Nathaniel!

Biggest sister Marianna and Louis share a special bond. He really lights up when she is around. She is like a second little mother to him and for a 3 almost 4 year old is really caring and responsible with him. Louis loves his sisters!

Louis gets lots of opportunities to be carried-- even by his sister. Marianna has been slowly getting more comfortable carrying Louis (sometimes w/o mommy knowing it right away!) She generally does a really good job but sometimes gives us a mini-heart attack:)

Here is Louis, after eating. Rubbing his belly...nom nom nom.

Here is Louis after I scare him by taking a picture (see above:) What a startled boy!

Attack of the killer bunny mask. Or rather the bunny craft mask that was cute at one time but has since lost a few pieces:)

Practicing some pre-crawling moves.

Our big boy is five months old and 14 1/2 lbs! He is still a scrawny fella though, I think mostly because he is so long! He wears 12 month clothes because his torso is super long. He is only 25th percentile for weight, but top of the charts for length. Head circ. was about average, so he is growing well. We're planning to start solids when he's 5 1/2 months old like his sisters did, with mostly fruits and veggies but still nursing full time. If he doesn't steal table food from my plate first that is!

We love our Louis!
