5 months old!!!

As usual, I can't believe time has gone by so quickly. Fischer is still doing new things every day. He can almost sit up by himself (he has the strength, but not the balance), he easily grabs toys now, he knows his name, and he is trying to crawl (very unsuccessfully!). His crawling right now consists of pushing with his feet while laying on his face...the face scoot. Then he looks up at you as if to say, "Did I make it?" He gets really frustrated when he doesn't make it to his goal...but he's learning! Below you will see how his daddy is trying to teach him to play video games, how he likes to read books, and he got his first kiss from a girl in his Sunday School class named Annabelle (at Olive Garden - how romantic!)

This month was highlighted with a big trip to Texas...and Fischer's first flight! He did very well; no crying at all. We could see the looks on people's faces when we got on the plane with a baby, but by the end of the trip, they were all trying to play with him because he will smile at anyone! (he loves the ladies). Texas was a lot of fun...Fischer got to see all his relatives on Dustin's side of the family and some of our friends from college. Here are some pictures from the trip:
