5 Months, Drool and A Star Is Born

Benjamin hit the big 5 month mark last week. He's getting to be such a big boy. We continue to try rice cereal every couple of days and he's still trying to get the hang of it. He'll eat a few bites fine, then start getting really mad and upset, kicking his legs, etc. That's when we stop. I know he'll get used to it eventually and I'm not rushing it. Here are a few of his 5 month photos. Notice the drool. It's nonstop, copious amounts and we have to wonder if we will be seeing a tooth soon.

Here's a brother and sister picture. Sister was not yet dressed when I took this. And yes, she is not wearing matching jammies. She changes her jammie pants frequently and usually does not have a matching set on. But I think they look so cute together. :-)

Sunday evening was the church talent show. For the last week Emily has been talking about signing, practicing her songs, and telling me, "I want to get on stage by all myself." Well, the show was over and the youth pastor asked if anyone else would like to perform. Emily got up, took her microphone she brought from home, got on stage and sang Jesus Loves Me and then another little song from a Barney movie we have here at home. She wanted me to come up on stage with her so I sat next to her, held the real microphone for her and sang quietly along with her. She did a great job and didn't want to leave the stage!! What a ham! Everyone loved her show and I think it won't be long before she has an agent and takes her act on the road. Ha! We don't have photos of her solo performance since I was on stage with her and Daddy was running the camcorder. And I don't think we can post our camcorder video to the blog so you'll just have to take my word for it how cute it was. But here is a photo of her with the group of other children singing some songs earlier in the show. Notice she had her mic with her then, too.
