So, Luke was five months old last week! I'm so behind on posting. He's rolling both ways now, from tummy to back and back to tummy. He can get to the toy he wants if it's within a couple feet of him by either rolling or turning himself by arching his back and scooting his feet.
At five months Luke is mellowing out a little more every day. He is a very high strung baby, but is becoming happier by the day. He is content to play with his toys on the floor or in his exersaucer for fairly long periods of time. He is getting pretty good at arching his back and twisting his body on the floor to get himself closer to the toy he wants. He grabs at his feet, and has started actually getting a hold of them pretty often. My man has no desire to sleep through the night. Sometimes lack of sleep makes me feel like I'm going to lose my mind, but then I get to hold him when he's all snuggly and asleep and I forget that it's 3 am and I've already been up four times.
Luke goes through periods where he's very vocal and other periods when he's really quiet. I think he likes the sound of his voice in certain places, like the house in Ocean City which is very open and at church where the ceilings are really high. Nobody at church seems to mind him "talking" throughout the service though, they tell us how cute he is and what a joy it is to have a baby there.
You know what the frustrating thing about blogging is? The fact that my very favorite things about Luke can't be captured with pictures or words. It's a million tiny things that can't really be described. So, these will have to do.
This is what I get when I change him during the night. He rolls over and goes back to sleep on his changing table.

sleeping on his tummy! sometimes when he rolls on his tummy he cries and I have to flip him, sometimes he flips himself, and sometimes he just falls right back to sleep.
