Happy 5 months buddy!
I love this kid so darn much. I can’t imagine life without him! Right now he is eating just under 30 oz of formula a day along with half a small veg or fruit and a T of rice cereal. He loves food. He LOVES food. It’s shoveled in his mouth and he doesn’t miss a drop.
He weighs almost 16 lbs and is 94% tile for length!
He’s quick to smile.
His usual sleep schedule is a 45 min nap around 9 am, 1230ish – 245ish, a cat nap around 5:15 pm. He would sleep a couple of hours before bedtime – ie 5:00 – 7:00 pm if I let him. But I don’t. He goes down for the night anywhere between 8:00 – 9:00 and sleeps until around 5:30-6:00ish. He will sleep through the night around 4 nights out of seven. Then he is up once to eat for two days, then he is up twice (or more) for one day until the cycle repeats himself. The more places I take him in the evenings, the more tired he becomes and the better he sleeps.
He doesn’t cry much.
He lays in his crib and “talks”. Complains really, until someone comes in (meaning me). He gets so excited when he comes in that he kicks around like crazy and grins.
I put him in the same position in the crib each night swaddled and I find when he wakes up he usually has worked very hard to get his hands loose and is in a completely different position; often with his foot stuck between the slats.
He has been rolling over since birth but can do it with ease now.
He loves to snuggle and sleep on your lap.
Not a big fan of pacifiers.
Fusses and chews on his hand often. Still doesn’t have enough hand control to get toys in his mouth (I think his sister did by this age).
LOVES to stand and is very, very good at it. Needs little support.
Almost too large for the carseat.
