Time is going sooo quickly. 5 months, can't believe that.
Goodness me, I can't get enough of him!
Our guy is a busy little thing. He is a baby that likes to GO....even when he can't quite get where he wants to go! :) He is so different than Chase! He isn't a baby that enjoys just to be held. He wants to be sitting upright and on the move. Bouncing, rocking, walking, swaying. He keeps us busy!
He loves to roll over and spends most of his time on his tummy. He can even inchworm his way to things he really wants, such as a toy of Chase's. There will be some major toy shuffling around here very soon as it is giving me anxiety that he will get a hold of something small!
He loves to grab both of his toes and kick his legs. He is starting to blow raspberries with his tongue and loves to squawk and hear his own voice. He likes to chew on teething toys and is getting quite drooly. He gets VERY frustrated at toys and often does better when it's just him on the blanket. He will grunt and groan when they don't fit into his mouth the right way. He recently tried out an exersaucer and seems to like it. Don't worry Mimi (the OT of the family) he is only in it for 20-30 minutes a day, if that. :) Perfect for him while we are eating dinner!
He is sleeping pretty well. Every so often he will have an off night where he's up more than once, but usually he goes to bed between 7-8 pm and gets up to eat around 5/5:30 am. He usually goes back to sleep for 2 more hours after that. We'll take it!
He is taking a really good morning nap a few hours after he wakes up, usually lasting from 1.5-3 hours. His afternoon naps are more like cat naps. He naps in the rock n play in the morning and my goal is to move him to the crib for that morning nap SOON!
Here are some photos from the past few weeks!
Loves to grab his toes...
and chew on them. :)
