5 Months

Austin has discovered that he has hands and fingers. It is funny to watch him sit and just stare at his hands; opening and closing them, and turning them back to front, and then back. He does this mostly when he is eating.

He started sitting up this last month, and has gotten to the point where he can sit for only a minute or so without toppling over. We stack up pillows behind him, and toys in front, and he is good for at least a little while. 

His hair is getting out of control! I anticipate a haircut, or at least a trim in the next couple of days. 

Austin got sick for the first time. He wasn't really interested in eating, and his temperature reached 103. He was always tired but couldn't sleep; his stuffy nose and cough made it hard for him to breathe during naps and at night.

He weighs 16 lbs. 12 oz.
