You need more patience, all arts require you to stick with it if you want to benefit from them. A year or 2 will give you a true sense of what an art is about and whether you want to stick with it. At our Muay Thai club you on't even get to do the fun stuff for the first year.

By your comments you seem to love it.

If money isn't an issue keep it up. There will be plenty of times in your life when you will be forced to leave your school for one reason or another. Then is the ideal time for moving on.

Don't cross train until you have a solid base in MT. 5 months is hardly even a beginning, especially since it's your first martial art. Stick with it solely and focus on getting a strong, solid understanding and then move on to cross training. Do it too early and you'll never get proficient at EITHER art.

I also concur, except that judo is really great. It may get you hooked too.

Hey you never know some people pick up martial arts really fast, making it easyer to crosstrain. second off you can do both at once considering that they are inpacting to diffrent areas striking and grappling.,

If you are meant to be there you will just know. There won't being a whole lot of umming and ahhing. Don't just go elsewhere after you cease training look around while you training and physically compare the two.

Cheers
