I’ll share our weekend with you tomorrow but first things first…baby boy is 5 months old!!! And SO MUCH FUN!!!
Size: 18 pounds 28 inches (97% tile). Size 6mo sleepers are getting snug 9 month ones are more comfortable on you. 9 to 12 month onesies. 6-12 month clothes. We’re trying to finish up the rest of your size 2 diapers and have size 3’s ready to go. We actually put you in a 3 at night to hold more of your tee tee
Development: You can grab things in front of you and put everything in your mouth. You play with your feet and are rolling over both ways. You actually LOVE to be on your stomach and you’ll get your little knees up under you too. It won’t be long before your crawling. As far as sitting up goes you are lasting longer and longer each day probably at about 30 seconds now without falling over. You belly laugh out load and it’s the best!! Sometimes your just in silly moods and little things like watching mommy eat a chip crack you up! Your latest tricks are blowing zerberts with your mouth and holding your bottle. Unfortunatly mommy uses glass bottles and they are heavy! So you can only really hold it up when your finished and its empty.
Personality: Your still a very good and easy baby. You love most everybody and think its fun to be “on the go” with mom and dad. You have silly moods where you laugh at a lot, serious moods where you just sit quietly and look very relaxed. Your very determined to get stuff that you want, for example grabbing for toys you’ll try until you succeed. You really are only fussy if your tired and ready to wind down. You also have very active moods where you will kick and swing your arms like crazy. I can tell your going to be a busy little boy
Eating: You took to cereal really well this month. We started you on once a day and worked up to twice, morning and night. Your schedule looks like this these days. 6:30am nurse, 8:30am cereal (during the week daycare gives u this), 10am 7oz breast milk, 2pm 7oz breastmilk, 5pm 7oz breast milk, 6:30pm cereal, 8pm bed time bottle of formula. We started giving you a formula bottle for bed too because mommy just couldn’t keep up with how much you are eating. You LOVE formula and mommy and daddy are happy that you are still getting 4 feedings of breastmilk a day as well. It works out! We think we will try giving you some oatmeal this month
Sleeping: Every month your sleeping just gets better and better. More nights than not you sleep straight from 8pm to 5:30/6:30am. If you do wake up at all in the night all we have to do is give you your paci back and your back to sleep. For the 5:30/6:30 morning nursing session mommy brings you into bed with me. You eat and then are right back to sleep…it’s my favorite snuggle time with you! oh yeah, and you’re a tummy sleeper. The second we lay you in your crib you flip right to your stomach. No stopping you! By the middle of the night you have your knees tucked under you and your little butt in the air. Talk about cute!!!
Likes: Music and having songs sung to you, twinkle twinkle is your favorite. Books and being read to. Your bath, playing with toys, watching mickey and baby Einstein, being held and tickled. You love to sit up and stand up more than lay down now. Zurberts blown on your tummy or feet ALWAYS make you belly laugh. You also LOVE your chica chica boom boom cd. The second you fuss in the car we press play and your instantly quiet. It’s a miracle worker for us!
Dislikes: Really just getting lotioned up after your bath and being tired. And Hunter 5 wanted to show you all his new skills! check out the video below :)
