Micah: 5 Months

The Big Boy is 5 months old today.  I know its cliche, but sometimes it seems like he’s been here all along and in other ways I can’t believe its been 5 whole months.  The days go slow sometimes but the months have been flying by.

At 5 months, he:

  • rolls over
  • smiles
  • coos
  • laughs a lot
  • has 2 teeth
  • is growing out of 9 month clothes and wearing 12 month
  • scoots on his belly (mostly backward)
  • loves his big sis
  • loves being tickled
  • takes 3 naps/day
  • sleeps around 8 hours a night, then wakes up to eat and then sleeps again for another 2-4 hours
  • is starting to like rice cereal a little
  • is more flexible than his big sis was at this age (or maybe I’m more flexible?)
  • is very social
  • smiles at anyone who talks to him
  • nuzzles into my shoulder when he gets tired
  • likes having his bum patted after he’s done eating and before he goes to bed
  • likes singing and humming
  • loves being outside
  • wants to be on the move a lot
  • splashes like a wild man in the bath
  • likes being on the move in the Baby Bjorn (which would be fine if he didn’t weigh 20 lbs!)
  • doesn’t like to be constrained by the carseat unless he is sleeping
  • likes the exersaucer or anything that keeps him busy

Micah, October 2011

Isn’t he a handsome little fella?  We love you, Big Guy.

  1. We’ll have to Skype soon so we can see glimpses of his progress! Sounds like Big Guy has found his comfort zone. 🙂
