Happy 5 months


You are 5 months old today! 
You weigh approximately 15 pounds

You are still my little bobblehead- tiny body and big head. 
You  still fit into some 0-3 month clothes.  You are wearing a few 3-6 month clothes and jammies. 
You are still eating a lot!  You are eating 5-6 times/day, usually just 5.  I still have had to give you 2 oz formula a few times a day because I can't keep up with your demand.  You take about 36-38 oz breast milk per day.   
You wear size 2 diapers, but we have started putting you in size 3's for sleep.
You stay awake anywhere from 1.5-2.5 hours after eating.  You still like Sophie the giraffe.  You love books.  You like your playmat with keyboard kick plate and are really liking your jumper and bouncer.   
The weather has been great so we have been able to get out and walk pretty regularly and you love it.  You love looking at everything and usually fall asleep before we get back.  
Your smile melts our hearts.  You are continuing to be happier and happier.  You are definitely becoming a little charmer - you smile really easily at everyone.
You still really like being held - we can't put you down for too long.  Although, you don't want to sit still, you want to stand all the time.
You have started flipping from your stomach to your back and flipping from your back to your stomach.  One of my favorite things happened this past month - you started raising your arms up when we say, "Up."  We just love picking you up and having you reach for us.
Your eyes still look like a deep blue color.
Your hair is continuing to lighten and is now blonde.
You don't take much of an interest in the tv anymore and I'm not sure why.  
You are sleeping about 10-11 hours per night.   You go to sleep pretty easily, thankfully.  Naps have been rough this past month.  You have only been napping 15-30 min at a time.  I have started to put you in the sleep sack instead of your swaddle for naps and I think that's why you aren't napping very well.  You keep waking yourself up.   
Everything still goes in your mouth these days. 
You are trying really hard to mimic our mouths and sounds.  You are just starting to blow raspberries and make a cute popping sound.  
We started feeding you rice cereal a few weeks ago and you love it.  You still love watching us eat and open your mouth real wide and try and steal our utensils.  I think we are going to start baby food some time in the next week or two.  
You are our sweet precious gift from God.  
We love you!
Love your little rosy cheeks

Happy 5 months!
