Our happy little boy turned 5 months yesterday. 5 MONTHS! Crazy. He is such a sweet little guy. He's really grown "up" this past month. He's now in 3-6 month clothes and wears a size 2 diaper. We've had a few issues with him sleeping, but thankfully, unswaddling him has seem to fix that. He goes to bed around 7pm, wakes for milk around 2-3 and goes back to sleep right away until around 6:30-7. He's still sleeping in the bassinet next to our bed, but takes naps in his swing. He takes two good naps during the day and sometimes sneaks in a cat nap.
He loves to play with rattles and teethers..or anything else his little fingers can reach. Seriously, he wants it he will get to it. He's pretty much done with bouncy seats. It's become to dangerous. He sits up in them and he tries to roll over. I'm too afraid he's going to fall out of them. Not cool. But he LOVES being on his tummy, looking around and watching his big brother play.
He's overall a really easy happy baby..that is unless I'm not around. Then he may turn into a screamer. He is going through a little bit of separation anxiety right now, or as my husband refers to it, "not the mama syndrome." Ha.
-He can sit up now! At 4 months and 1 week, we sat him down and he sat there all by himself! He can sit by himself for a good amount of time now. Still wobbly, so we place the boppy pillow around him or stay close by.
-First Word: MA-MA!! Monday, he started making sound noises. (Da, Ma, Ba)
-Scooting. If he's on the floor and sees something he wants. He will get to it.
-Sucks on his toes. Yum.
THINGS HE LOVES
Sophie the Giraffe
ExerSaucer (short periods of time)
THINGS HE HATES
Being away from mommy (majorly)
We still haven't tried solids yet. He still seems perfectly satisfied with mommy's milk. We will try starting that next month. He does however take a bottle for me now. Key word being "me". But hey it's something!
Now for his monthly tie pictures:
Such a happy boy!
