Five Months Old

This is going by so fast, but it is so fun!

You are officially laughing now but still don't do it very often. You would rather squeal and screech. 
You are mostly such a good and happy baby. You are starting to not like riding in the car more and more though. When it used to put you right to sleep you spend the majority of the time in the car crying unless I'm sitting in the back seat with you.
You are doing so well at sitting up! If you have something that your bum is nestled into you can sit right up without any other support. There have also been a few times where you have sat up without any help at all. You have this cradle that we now have to strap you into since you are getting so squirmy and strong. When we put you in it, you will sit up and just your little head is popping up over the edge. It is pretty cute to see. You also sit straight up in your bouncer when you are strapped into it. That is some great core strength! 
I am not sure if you are loving tummy time or if you just don't remember how to roll back over to your back. Whenever we put you down on your back you immediately roll over to your tummy. You will be content like that for long periods of time too, so I'm guessing you like it. You will just look around while holding your head up so well! You're also getting much squirmier and tend to travel a little bit while you're on the ground. Just the only direction you go right now is backwards. You have rolled back to your back many times, but just not very often.

You have been taking naps and sleeping at night in your very own crib in your room with Tanner. It has been a very smooth transition. You haven't woken Tanner up hardly at all and you can sleep 4 or 5 hours at a time sometimes. Usually it's only 2 or 3, which we need to work on.

We have started you on solids and you are doing so well! Right now you are loving squash, banana and apple. It's a little bit of a fight to get you to eat vegetables, but you eventually get them down. You've also been holding your own bottle every now and then and are getting pretty good and putting your bink back into your mouth.

We believe you have been teething lately. You are nothing but drool, chewing on your fingers or anything you can get into your mouth really and a bit of a runny nose. Just waiting for that first tooth to pop through!

You have now officially upgraded to size 2 diapers and into 3-6 months clothes. I was so sad when I put away your 0-3 month clothes, but the new wardrobe is pretty fun. I love putting you in outfits that I love when your big brother wore them and you are just as cute in them!

Weight: 15.8 lbs (home scale)
Height: 26.25 inches

You are so much fun and can't wait to see what you do this next month!
