Theodore: 5 Months


Little boy, you are growing too fast!

Here are some of your stats for the month:

-You are in size 2 diapers.  Size 3 just arrived and are ready for you!  You are in mostly 3-6 month clothes.  Your 3 month pants are getting a little too short.

-You hold your head up like a champ and are working on sitting up.  It'll probably take another month.

-You're now rolling both ways!  You love to roll up on your belly and just laugh and laugh.  Especially when your sissy is watching you.  Then she laughs.  So funny.

-You love when mommy or daddy play the piano.  You'll just lay there and smile.  Love it.

-You are still so smiley.  Only fussy when you're tired and hungry.  Sometimes you get overly tired and do not want to go to sleep!

-Your naps have been much better this month!  Sometimes it takes you a little bit to get down at night, but once you're down, you sleep til we wake you up.  Thank you!

-Your naps are typically from 9am-10:30am or 11am and afternoon nap from about 1pm-2:30pm.  Then you take a catnap around 4:30pm or 5pm and wake up around 6pm ready for that last bottle.  You still go down early like your sister-around 7pm.

-Eating 8 oz. every 3.5 to 4 hrs during the day.  We switched you back to cow's milk because the soy didn't seem to make a different.  It actually seemed to make you a little fussier.  You're now eating rice cereal or oatmeal 3 times a day along with plain yogurt.  You eat veggies or fruit twice a day.  So far you've had:  carrots, peas, sweet potatoes, avocado, applesauce, peaches and squash.  The sweet potatoes don't really agree with your stomach.  You have eaten everything just fine, but especially like avocado!

-You squeal and talk all the time.  Very cute!

-Still a thumb sucker.  Once you are asleep, you take it out.

-Your sister absolutely adores you and loves playing with you (sometimes a little too rough!)
