Happy 5 Months!

 Cale is 5 months old!!  I can't believe how he has changed in these last few weeks!
 He has started rolling over consistently from his tummy to his back, infact we can't keep him on his belly because he rolls over the second we put him down!
 He has a very quick and strong grip, good luck getting your hair back if he gets a hold of it!
 He LOVES cozy blankets!  He falls asleep as soon as he's wrapped up in one!
 He loves to be tossed, rolled, tickled, and kissed! 
He started eating solid foods! I'm trying out the homemade baby food and following the Super Baby Food plan, so we started with brown rice cereal, sweet potatoes, and avocados!  It's been fun trying things out of the "norm"
He sleeps from 7-5, eats, then sleeps till 7 or 8.  It's wonderful :)
He still spits up ALL the time! 
He can walk if you hold his hands, which is so fun! 
He weighs 15 lbs (35th percentile) and 26 inches (80th percentile) so he's tall and skinny! 
 He got his helmet!  He has favored his left side since he was born, so the left side of his head is flat, his left ear has shifted forward and up higher than the right, and the left side of his face was also shifting up!  Kind of crazy, but he has the helmet for 3 months.  He wears it all day and night, but gets to take an hour break when he wakes up and before bed.  We are really pleased with it so far!  We have already seen great results! 
He is just a boy!  He loves to laugh and play rough, he has more ear wax, slobbers, and spits up more than any other baby i've seen!!  But we sure do love him!!  His laugh brightens all of our day!!
