5 Months Old!!!

(For those who asked...I get my backgrounds at Cutest Blog on the Block - all for FREE, and make my headers at - thanks for the sweet comments and emails!)

My big boy is 5 months old today!

He thought he'd be a show off for you and sit all on his own:

So what's the little man up to this month you ask? Here's a brief list...

-We have a favorite food! Freshly mashed bananas...yummo.
- You LOVE to talk. You often attempt imitating sounds, your favorites being "oh" and "hi."
- You startle easily. Which can be funny as long as you don't cry!
- You want to hold your bottle but you still aren't coordinated enough!
- You sit up for a couple minutes at a time.
- You HEART your FEET!
- You're shy!!! If someone new talks to you, you hide your face in my shoulder! I love it!
- You are just like like staring at yourself in the mirror! Ha!
- You are still in love with your jumperoo.
- You think Mommy is your own personal gym when we are out. You are SO strong!
- You love watching TV, but how could you not? You are our son!
- You're still a great sleeper. Every night you are asleep by 9:10 and you sleep until at least 7:15.
- You smile more than any baby I've ever met! You are so happy!
- You are a sound slept through an entire thunderstorm that woke both Mommy and Daddy up!

I'll keep adding!

And in case you ever wondered how much you can get out of ONE sweet potato...

There you have it.

One and a half ice cube trays. I'd say they hold about an ounce each...maybe...maybe not. I've never been good at guessing that kind of thing. I'm the person who puts leftovers in the biggest tupperware I have.

So to make this lovely concoction, I steamed the potato, then pureed it in my mini food processor (not my big one) and added water as needed to get the consistency.

I was at Tarjay today and I read the jar of sweet potatoes, and let's just say I'm glad to know that mine are free of a lot of that stuff!!! No offense to those who feed their baby the jarred stuff though...heck, I was fed the jarred stuff, and I'm ok! Well, maybe that depends who you ask...

Do you use recipes for your homemade baby food or just wing it? I think I've heard of people adding vegetable juice instead of water???? I could be wrong. I'm definitely hoping to make my own food when the time comes.

That looks like my butternut squash stash. ;) I love making our baby food.

Happy 5 months to Brayden!

I make all my baby food too. However, when we go camping I buy jarred as it is easier than having to try to keep the stuff I make chilled. So, just thought I would let you know Gerber makes organic and Earth's best...both are strictly how we make it (just the veg or fruit and water) ascorbic acid (Vit. C) for perserving which accoring to is fine.

First I wanted to say thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on my girlie. You'll have to go check out my sons (two of them) now that I posted swimming pictures today.

Second, HAPPY 5MO BIRTHDAY to Brayden. He always looks so happy and content.

I love the thought of making your own baby food. Wish I would have thought of that or had the time.

I will be making my own baby food too! I fed both my other kids the jar kind but now that I'm older and wiser I've made the switch to cloth diapering (all in ones) and making my own food! we'll see how it goes once the baby is here! lol

and Brayden is such a cutie, I'm so glad he's a happy and healthy 5 month old, praise GOD!
