5 Months

We have had a busy month! We went to Oregon twice and spent a week in Hawaii. Ephraim has grown a ton. Here are his highlights:
*We have finally stopped having to use a nipple shield to eat!
*He eats every 3 hours and we are trying to extend that even more.
*He has become much more coordinated with his hands and grasps at things all of the time.
*He loves water and his bath.
*He has begun scooting on his back. He arches his back and then pushes down with his heels. Several times I have been changing his diaper, reach down for a wipe and find his head off of the changing pad.
*He hasn't rolled over yet - I think he could if he really wanted to, but he is completely content on either his tummy or back.
*He loves to smile and laugh.

He was not in the mood for a photoshoot on his "birthday." I couldn't find my stuffed Dopey to take a picture with, so I put him in a Dopey t-shirt.
He loves it when Forrest makes him fly.

Sleeping on Nana's dock. I think his hands look like he is praying.

He loves to jump in this. He giggles as he spins himself in circles.
