5 star baby

beckham turned 5 months old on the 19th and i am WAY behind on posting about it. we have had a busy 5 months. beckham is just the best baby. i feel like i say that every day because he is so laid back and just goes with the flow. beckham is rolling over all the time now and his favorite time of day to practice is between 1-3 AM. i'm not really sure why this is his favorite time - definitely not mine. we hear him on the monitor just having a good ole' time in his bed until he can't figure out how to get back on his tummy. so, mommy and daddy take turns flipping him back over until he finally gives up and goes back to sleep. i can't remember how long this lasted with court, but hopefully, he'll start practicing this more during the day. beckham has the best smile and the most precious 2 dimples.... it'll melt your heart. he is such a happy baby - we are very blessed. he just loves watching his brother court play - he'll follow him with his eyes all over the house. he is eating bananas and cereal each day and hopefully i'll get some other baby food made soon so he can expand his palate! he bounces so high in his bouncer i'm afraid he is going to fly out. we may have to put that thing away soon. he loves the sound of his voice right now. he just talks and talks and talks... especially when he is trying to fall asleep. he is a mover and a shaker that's for sure. he scoots ALL over his bed, his changing pad, and the floor. we really have to watch him now. beckham is also giving HUGS. when i hold him, he'll wrap both arms around my neck. i know it's not a real hug like court can give now, but i still count it as a hug. at least until he grabs my hair to put it in his mouth, or until he starts sucking on my chin to tell me he is hungry. i really had no idea how much work fun 2 children 2 and under would be. we are busy all day long and half the time at the end of the day, i really don't know what we got accomplished. any one else ever feel like that? :) loving my busy life although i would love to add about 10 extra hours (of sleep) between the hours of midnight and 6 AM. anyone know how to do that?
