Happy Halloween! Andrew had a fun time with Grandma Olsen. He did a great job of showing her how he can roll and grab things. He also gave quite a few smiles to the neighbors who loved him in his bat hat.
It was 95 degrees today, which is way too hot for a big costume, so we opted for a "I want Candy" onsie. Here he is acting like the candy corn.

Andrew hasn't really liked any of the jarred baby food I have been giving him. This morning I pureed some sweet potatoes and peas to see if he would eat it any better. I wouldn't say he loved it, but he didn't hate it. I think the texture is more like his oatmeal.

Andrew and Elizabeth love being together. When Elizabeth is napping or doing something with Daddy, Andrew doesn't quite know what do to. His sister is a big part of his life. This morning she was trying to share this book with him. Unfortunately it was a little big for her to handle and she knocked him in the head. He is tough though, and didn't seem to mind.

You wouldn't think this innocent face could figure out how to reach his oatmeal bowl and grab it, but he did. This kid has an amazing determination, and an even better reach. He has really figured out how to use his hands to his advantage. I would dare say he is quicker than his sister. Oh Boy!

ANDREW SLEPT THROUGH THE NIGHT!!! Mommy and Daddy are so proud of him. It was a long time coming. He had been getting up every two hours to eat, but Mommy and Daddy decided he was big enough and let him cry. He cried for 45 minutes Friday night and finally found his fingers to suck on and put himself back to sleep. Last night he didn't make a sound all night.

Andrew is 5 months old today. He weighs over 18 lbs and is healthy and happy. He has been eating oatmeal for about a month now and loves it. We have also tried carrots and sweet potatoes, but he doesn't really care for either one. He has gotten very good at rolling over. He is quick at getting from his back to his tummy, and will occasionally go from his tummy to his back. He has really started giggling and interacting with people. He also loves having his sister close and doesn't mind a little mauling every now and then. The biggest surprise for me is dressing him in 12 month clothes and having them fit. I wish he would stop growing for a little while and stay small and cuddly.
