5 months old

Leo turns 5 months old today, and he is getting huge. He is 17 pounds, and 271/4 inches long. Everywhere we go, people think he's 8 or 9 months old. He is a big, big boy! His hair is growing too-- it sticks straight up, so he looks a little bit like a dandelion.

Leo loves to look in the mirror and laugh at that funny baby he sees. He loves to jump and bounce and play. He loves watching other kids. He loves blowing raspberries, and being tickled.
Last week he rolled over for the first time, from his back to his stomach. His legs are very strong too. For the last month or so, he can stand up on his legs. We hold his hands, and he can support all his own weight. We get so excited about these small milestones, but we also get scared that our little baby is growing up too fast.
