Another month has come and our little boy is 5 months old!
He is really starting to get a cute little personality and he is just so fun.
We started him on solids when he was about 4.5M to help see if it would make him last longer in between feeds..since he still likes to eat every 3 hours. Although it didn't help initially, he has been going longer stretches in between meals..now he eats every 2-3 hours...and will go up to 4-5 at night!! it's been great!
He isn't a big fan of the solids...definitely does not like rice cereal..so we went on to bananas...and after a while he decided he liked that ...but those really made him constipated..so we haven't done those again..yet.
peas were next..another sour face..and not a fan...next was sweet potatoes..that seemed to be tolerable..haha!
and lastly, we have done carrots..not exactly a fan..will take up to 2-3 bites and then decides he's not a fan.
but, he does love prunes..found that out when he was constipated..:)
of all our kids, he is definitely the pickiest!! ha! (at least when it comes to baby food).
He talks up a storm...definitely wants his voice to be heard. but, i love those little voices, sounds, giggles and laughs...and his big smiles light up my day!
he is a squirmy wormy...constantly moving when being held and immediately flips over when on his back..and then keeps rolling.
He found his feet...and constantly plays with them.
Still keeps a fist in his mouth at all times..haha..so his sleeves are typically drenched with drool...and he changes clothes a few times a day bc he spits up so much on them. ha!
He loves to play "pat a cake" and "happy if you know it"..
started tucking his knees and arms under him so off his belly..that has helped his sleeping as well. :)
he and claire are so sweet together...he can spot her out of a crowd..and she is constantly up in his space, wanting to hold him, feed him, play with him, etc.
He had his first time away from his mommy and daddy while we were in NYC...he did good...especially once we got his bowls under control. haha. but I could not wait to get my hands on him once we got home!
Had his first lunch with bigs at school...
Love you, JTR!
