Weight/Length: He was exactly 14 lbs. on his five month weight check in. (We bought a scale shortly after he was born, it’s a lot of fun to check to see how our little man is growing!) He was 26″ when we measured his length, and didn’t measure his head this time. He’s a long and lean baby, and we love it!
Hair: I think his hair is getting a little lighter compared to when he was born. It’s getting long in the back and remaining shorter on the sides, with a few stragglers.
Diapers: Size 2 Honest Company and Medium Gdiapers.
Clothing: 3-6 Months in Gap, Old Navy, and Gymboree. 6 Months in Carters. 🙂
Favorite Things: The swing (both in and outside), his bug crib toy, and piano gym
Likes: He loves listening to music–any kind, he loves the stroller and the ergo, eating at dinner time (not so much breakfast time), swim class, watching other kids, anything to do with outside!
Dislikes: The Bumbo. Well, he likes it but he spits up in it every time he sits in it. So it is not my favorite thing. Hopefully he will like it at some point!
Milestones: He is starting to stand up, as well as learning to sit up. I’m guessing he will be able to sit up by 6 months. He started rolling right around 3.5 Months stopped about a month later. Did it the other day and decided it wasn’t for him again. We will see when he starts again. He LOVES to talk and laugh , he will talk to anyone. He is usually the one talking during his My Gym class.
Sleeping: Oh sleeping…Usually up 2 times at night, sometimes around 1am and then at 4/5. (But last night he slept til 4:30AM, it was pure bliss!) He usually takes 2 naps during the day and a catnap in the evening. His first nap is about an hour and the next one at least 1.5 hours.
I hear myself daily say how I can’t believe how fast he is growing, and I want my newborn baby back! In all honesty, I love watching him grow and learn about the world around him. Literally, he is a sponge that is taking in everything around him. All it takes is usually one or two times of showing him something and he is ready to go! This is such a fun stage and I can’t wait to continue to watch him grow!
Come back later today for Confessional Friday!
