The little lad is
five months old! Sigh. . . Makes me sad that time seems to travel at the speed of light! He was my only baby that was born little, but he has not stayed that way. He hasn't been back to the doctor for months, so I do not have an accurate weight. My arm tells me that he is quite heavy! :-) He has been sporting a size 3 diaper for months and is "fittin' right smart" in 6-9 mo outfits. All the drooling has come to fruition - we have spied two bottom "toofers." He has heaps of smiles for his family but still loathes time in front of a camera! (As if you hadn't figured that one out!) He is becoming quite the snuggler, and his Daddy is one of his favorite people. He gets soooo happy when he spies Troy and always turns when Daddy's voice is heard. I have come to discover that he does not like to be passed around to numbers of people and gets very overwhelmed if too many folks fawn all over him. I remember Seth being the same way. Silas is very content to see people from the security of his parents' or Seth's arms. There seems to be a few friends that have moved into his inner circle, but for the most part. . .he's family oriented. Silas has found his hands and has been reaching for all sorts of things and now spends time with toys. He loves to sit and be entertained by his big brothers. Developmentally he seems right on track, but I have noticed his muscles are not as strong as a his brothers' were at this point. We were told to give the lad an extra four week cushion since he was born early.
Enjoy some recent photos of the littlest Castle.

I always love to hear/see updates of what your little guy is up to. It makes me sad that they get "big" so fast, but also just a little bit of pride(the good kind :-) surfaces as well. Gotta love those big boys! :-)

Love the update and pictures. It seems Silas was able to elicit a bit of a smile at the tarantulla! Hope that is not a sign of future "surprises" for Mom. Hugs to all of you!

Already!? Five months sure did fly by! He looks really big and squishy! LOVE the pictures! He is a doll. Wish I could sqeeze him! I love squeezing my baby, and kissing her to pieces! Wow! He has teeth already! Hope acts like she's cutting, but I am still waiting... just a lot of drooling and chomping on her hands!

I really enjoyed these pictures. The funny thing is, Mollie has the same spider that's shown in the last picture! She enjoys things like that much to her mother's dismay. :-) I can't believe how fast your baby boy is growing.

Wow, Silas is getting so big, his sober expressions are so cute!

I love to see pictures of your growing boys!

5 months already!? Goodness, where does time go? Silas has grown so fast!

I know what you mean, Jana. Since he was so small, I thought he would stay that way but not a chance! I truly think he is close to 20 lbs!

Martha, my nearly 3 year old is still wearing size 5 diapers! What are you feeding that boy?! :)
