Baby boy turned 5 months old on April 28 (I know, I’m late posting this).
He’s itching to get up and get moving. He tries to do all of the things that his brother does, but he just can’t yet. I look for him to start crawling SOON.
He’s got sitting up completely mastered. He (obviously) still topples over occasionally, but he’s pretty steady. He can roll from back to front and front to back. He has two teeth that are in completely with two more coming in (that we can see).
He doesn’t sleep as soundly as he was, thanks to the teething. He still wakes up twice a night and is up for the day by 7:30 most mornings. He takes a catnap in the morning around 10:00 and a longer nap in the afternoon around 2:00 followed by another catnap around 6:00.
I really think his big brother might be his favorite person. Ever. He sure does love Noah.
He’s still exclusively breastfed, and we haven’t really talked about or thought about weaning him yet. Maybe around eight months? I’m not worried about it now. He’s thriving and it really doesn’t bother me or annoy me yet. The only issues we have with BFing is the biting. He thinks chewing on my boob is hilarious. You can tell by the way he grins when he does it.
