Five Months Old
My Appearance: Yesterday was my five month birthday! I was weighed today and I am now 16lbs 14 oz and I am 26.5 inches long. My hair is getting longer and it is a light brown color although in the sun it looks a little red. I also have some curls around my ears and so my hair always looks crazy. I also have a very large bald spot on the back of my head. I got my first tooth this month and today I got my second tooth. I still only have blonde hair for eyebrows. I look a little chunky with my double chin and rolls all over my body.
Milestones: This month I have done quite a few new things. First on May 29th I rolled over from my back to my belly. Now I spend most of my time on my belly. Throughout the month I also went from high pitch screaming to a low tone babble. On June 19 I got my first tooth. I am so tough that Mommy didn’t even know I was getting it until it was already poking through. Then a few nights later on June 21 I decided to not wake up in the night to eat and slept for 12 hours straight. Today, a day after my 5 month birthday I got my second tooth.
Daily Routine: My routine has changed a little this month. At first I woke up at about 6:30, ate at 7:30 and every 3 hours after that, my naps were only 30-45 min and I took about 4 naps a day, went to bed at 8, and woke up usually around 3:30 to eat in the middle of the night. The past week it has changed to getting up around 7 and eating, I take my first nap around 8:30 for about an hour, then get up and eat. I go down for my second nap around 12:30 and this nap lasts about 2 hours. I get up and eat, play, and then go down for a short nap at about 4:45 for 20-30 minutes. When I get up I eat again, play, and eat right before bed at about 7:30. During all my play time I like to stand up a lot. I got a new toy this month that helps me do that and I love to play in it. I also like to sit in my Bumbo and watch Mommy cook. I like to grab at everything and then it goes straight into my mouth. I got Tylenol and Origel this month and I do not like that nasty stuff.
Special Events: I had to spend almost this entire month without my Daddy around. I love spending time with Mommy but my Daddy is just so funny I missed laughing at him. Mommy and I did take a long drive to go and visit him this month and that was really fun. We all went to the St. Louis Zoo where I got to see a ton of animals. Daddy got me a monkey named Joe and he is one of my favorite toys to play with. I love to spend time outside and I got to do a lot of that this month too. I go swimming, take Kiara to the dog park, and go on runs with Mommy. I also got to celebrate Father’s day with Daddy a week late when he came home.
