Happy 5 months!
It's been another rough month of sickness, but you handle it pretty well. You've been sleeping in your carseat because you just can't breathe, which has also caused you to not sleep well at night. We're all exhausted. We're so ready for you to continually sleep through the night. We're also ready for everyone in the house to be healthy for a long stretch of time.
The day before your 5th month birthday, you started turning from your stomach to your back. You are so grabby now a days, also. You desperately want the remote and our phones. You still enjoy your play mat and your bouncer, you tolerate your bumbo for a few minutes, and you tolerate your stomach for a few minutes. You love Sophie the giraffe. You like being read to. You like being carried and have become less tolerant sitting in your bouncer. You LOVE your brother and have really started laughing at him. He still loves you and enjoys holding you for a couple of minutes at a time. He's very proud of you and still calls you "Baby Beckett"
I think you're about 17.5 pounds. You are still getting only breastmilk and eat 5-6 x day and take about 30-35 ounces. You are wearing size 2 diapers during the day and 3's at night. Naps are okay, especially if you're in your carseat. The first and second naps are about 1-1.5 hrs and the third is about 30 minutes, but sometimes you only nap for 10 or 15 minutes, you're definitely not consistent. You go to bed about 7:30 and usually wake up once or twice throughout the night and then wake up about 7. You travel in the car very well.
Here you are reaching for the camera
I still think you might be the smiliest baby I've ever been around, and everyone comments on how happy you are. You squeal and squawk a lot. You love having someone talk to you and maintain eye contact.

My cute little elf. My mom got you this adorable outfit. I love it!!!!!
You so desperately wanted to eat the strand of lights.
Happy 5 months to our sweet, happy, pleasant Baby Beckett! We love you so much and pray for you daily and know God has big plans for you!
