This one honestly snuck up on me – five months? FIVE WHOLE MONTHS?! Time slow down, pretty please.
Likes: Monkey (pictured in his 4-mo picture) is still a big favorite in this house, along side this rattle I randomly got him while at the store one day. He LOVES this thing, to the point that the other day when we went to Michael’s, he fell asleep holding it and didn’t let it go until we were back home. Silly kid. Loves standing as we hold him for balance, sometimes, he’ll cry and cry until we help him stand and then he’s happy as can be!
Dislikes: Still HATES falling asleep, it’s a battle somedays to get him to take his nap. He might love standing but hates trying to sit on his own, standing is where it’s at for this kid.
Milestones: Toes-to-mouth. Constant source of entertainment, them toes. First full belly laughs, and just continuing to get better at rolling over and tummy time stuff.
Weight/Height: N/A officially since no doc’s appointment but I do know he’s almost 14lbs (I did the whole, weight myself with him, then without him to see the difference).
Sleep: It’s been rough this month. He’s had more nights were he wakes up once around 1-2am than sleeping through the night nights. This wouldn’t be too bad if I could get back to sleep as he does, but no dice. I stay awake for at least another 45-60 mins after putting him back in the bassinet.
Random Tidbits: Oh man, where to start!
– He had a mild reaction to his 4-mo vaccinations so those were fun 2 days. NOT. Puke, no sleep, mild temperatures. Yikes.
– Two nights ago, he woke up a full 180 from how I laid him down. As in, his feet where were I put his head. Still not entirely sure how this happened.
– Apparently, he finds Pudge just plain ol’ hilarious. Some of the best laughs this month came at Pudgy Bear’s expense.
