Well, everyone told me that the time would go fast, but holy cow! Alan is 5 months old now, and growing like a weed. He is almost 17 lbs now, and a little on the chubby side. I still think he's perfect though. It's been a busy couple of months. Alan has started eating rice cereal, and just yesterday, his first tooth came through. He's just a little grumpy about it, but overall he's been a pretty good sport. A little Orajel, and a nice bath usually helps.
Since it's been so hot out, we've been trying to get some time in the pool. Alan loves to swim, and will gladly stay in the pool until he's a prune. He has also discovered Ginger. He likes to sit back and watch her, and sometimes he tries to get her attention, but she's not really into him.
Alan also got a chance to hang out with his cousins Alex & Avery. They all got along very well... actually they just kind of sat there. I'm sure that when they get older they will have more fun!
