5 months

Henry is 5 months old!
This has been a month full of firsts for Henry
-first family vacation
-first long trip in the car
-first wedding
-first baseball game
-first trip to Disney World
-first time to roll over (back to front)
-first time to sleep for 13 hours
-first time to eat cereal
-first time to meet Uncle Paul, Aunt Teresa, and cousin Jason

-he is still sleeping through the night most nights
-he thinks peekaboo is the funniest thing (other than his big brother)
-he wears a size 2 diaper
-he is wearing mostly size 6-9 month clothes and a few 6-12 month
-he is starting to like hanging out in his walker, but not for more than about 10 minutes
-he likes to hold his feet
-he is usually sucking on his hand, fist, forearm, bib or shirt
-he still likes his paci at night and nap time
-when we lay him in his crib he still sticks both of his feet straight up in the air (he has done this since he was a newborn)
-he finally rolled over. I was starting to wonder if he would ever do it. He is shy about it though, we still haven't seen it. He usually weights until I lay him down to play on the floor and then walk into the kitchen to do something. When I come back he is on his stomach instead of his back.
-nursing and supplementing with formula is still going well
-we have tried giving him rice cereal and oatmeal a few times. He is starting to like the oatmeal pretty well, but still isn't swallowing it as well as he should, so we will give it a rest and try again in a few weeks or so.

I know it's Friday, but I decided to post this instead of My Favorite Blog Feature Friday. It will return next week.

  1. Cute! That is funny about putting his feet in the air when you lay him down. I can just imagine what that looks like. Averi didn't roll onto her tummy until she was 6 months. She is 9 months now and not even close to crawling. She just rolls around on the floor but she has gotten really good at that!


  2. I can really see you in him in that first photo! So cute!


Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment! I read and appreciate each and every single one.
