Steak and potatoes

Connor now has TWO teeth! He sure is in a rush to get all these teeth in, guess he is excited to eat real food!

Connor hasn't really had a strong attachment to any comfort items, besides his teething giraffe Sophie. He loves Sophie and she goes everywhere with us for him to gnaw on and play with, but he doesn't really fuss if she isn't around.
This all changed last week. After we got home from our trip to Utah to see grandma there was a box waiting for us from my cousins Monica and Julie and my Aunt Susan. Inside was a cute onesie and an adorable soft blanket with Connor's name embroidered on the bottom of it.
Now every night and during nap time he fusses until I cover him up with it. He loves to rub it against his cheeks, which is just too cute!
I was nervous at first to put him in his crib with a blanket, but I figure if he can roll over both ways, sit up on his own and get up on his hands and knee's he is big enough to move the blanket if it covers his face.

5 1/2 months....already

I can't believe that Connor will be 6 months in under 2 weeks! Still blows my mind how fast time is flying by, before I know it he will be walking and doing his own thing!
Its been far too long since I have updated this thing so Ill start with things Connor now does:

1: Rolls over both ways (has since he was a few days shy of 4 months)
2: Feeds himself his bottle
3: Sits up on his own for longer than a minute without tipping over
4: Holds/plays and occasionally drinks from a sippy cup
5: Eats oatmeal and veggies (fruit will start soon)
6: Gets up on his knees and scoots backwards. Forward momentum will come some day!
7: His first tooth is all the way out and a second one is just days from breaking through the gums.
8: Giggles. This is my favorite. He loves having his sides and ribs tickled and just yesterday he giggled for the first time just because he thought the dog was funny. No tickling or anything required!
9. He has the pincer grab mastered and has no issues picking anything up with his thumb and forefinger.

That's all I can think of at the moment. I'm sure I'm missing some things...He is right around 19 pounds and 27inches. BIG BOY! He was around the 74% for weight and 78% for height at his last doctors appointment. His 3-6 month clothes are starting to make their way into storage as its becoming increasingly difficult to get them on him.

Connor and I took a road trip this past week to visit my mom and grandparents up in Utah. It was a LONG drive and if I'm being honest I wanted to pull my hair out by the end of it. It was awesome seeing my mom and grandparents but 20 hours total of driving time is just too much for me to do by myself with a 5 month old baby. We are home now and Connor is getting used to sleeping in his crib again instead of snuggling in bed with mom. He much prefers cuddling.
