5 Months Old

Bodie - you are already 5 months old! I won't say how i can't believe it or how fast this goes because that is really overstated...but sheesh...5 months already! this month you have been really making yourself known - who can blame you - you have Bryson to compete with :)

You found your toes on our trip to Modesto - and they are pretty cool i guess because every time i put you on your back, in your mouth they go. you are pretty ticklish and mommy and daddy can get you belly laughing - brother likes to blow on your stomach and dance around you when you are in the walker to get you to laugh. Mommy loves it when he does this while she is trying to cook dinner!

We weighed you last week and you were 18 lbs 1 oz. I think your Moby days are over because i tried to carry you around while errand shopping this week and you started sinking - i had to adjust it 3 times! that's okay though because you love the Ergo just fine...in fact most of the day you are there if i have you and big brother.

you caught a little cough/cold this last month and it has thrown your sleeping way off. gone are the nights of long sleep stretches - you now wake every 3 hours max - more like every 2 hours. you also are not a fan of being alone during the night - you prefer me to hold you ALL night long...which i can't because you are so heavy you make my arm fall asleep. i am hoping this is a temporary illness thing...

you are growing so big we had to buy a new carseat because your shoulders were too big for the infant seat's belts! you have entered the awkward baby phase where you can't sit up unsupported and are too big to be carried in the infant seat, so therefore you are held constantly...which you don't mind one bit :)

we got bryson's old walker down from the garage and cleaned it up for you - which is your new favorite thing...we also like to "shop" in bryson's baby toy bin - you are fascinated with all the toys and grabbing and discovering. you also like to discover my plate every time i eat - this month we also let you taste for the first time. you aren't too sure about the whole thing, but judging by your size, we think you will catch on pretty quickly!
