He has expanded his palate beyond rice cereal and breast milk to include apples, pears, peaches, oatmeal, barley, green beans, peas, sweet potatoes and butternut squash. He LOVES them all. In fact he hasn't found a food he doesn't like.
He has also started to play peek-a-boo. When someone ducks behind something and then pops out and says "Peek-a-boo!" Nate ducks down and pops back up at the same time. He doesn't actually say "peek-a-boo" but he giggles hysterically.
It is so amazing to see this little guy acquire all of these new skills.
Here are a few pics of Nate at 5.5 months:
