Age: 5 Months
Weight: weighed him this weekend and he was about 17lbs 6 oz
Milestones: SCREAMING he has certainly found his voice and loves to use it he likes to scream and squawk and is always telling us about everything. He has decided rolling is over rated and wont do it anymore, I have been putting him on his tummy more to hopefully help him develop more muscles for crawling and rolling. He is also getting better at sitting and it shouldn't be long before he is sitting up more straight on his own. He has been grabbing at stuff and playing with toys more too which I think is so cute!
Sleep: Still kind of random. I don't force any kind of sleep schedule on him I let him sleep when he is tired and not when I want him to. He will sleep from 730 or 8 at night and will usually wake around 3 am and then up for the day around 630 or 7. Sometimes he wakes around 1230 but I am hoping that will become less and less frequent. He will also usually lay down with me and take one or two long naps one in the morning and one in the afternoon usually lasting 2-3 hours.
Eating: Still exclusively breastfed, I am waiting till 6 months to start solids. Breastfeeding has gotten so much easier I will do a post just on that here soon but I love that he can eat and be full in 5 minutes. On the nights I work he will sometimes eat 5oz around 6 then another 6-7oz just before bed around 730 or 8 then will eat another 6oz when he wakes up in the nights and then 5oz at 630 or 7.
Likes: LOVES to be outside and go on walks, bath times, his jumperoo, books
Dislikes: being left alone in a room, being wet or dirty, getting his nose wiped...typical boy
|taking a dive trying to get out of his boppy...no tummy time mommy!!!|
What I'm wearing: moved to size 3 diapers for nighttime, most of 6m clothes are getting tight Im going to have to rotate to the 9m stuff. 6-9m clothes fit good too almost all 6m jammies are too short
