He is grabbing for his toes constantly and is even managing to get them in his mouth. He loves flipping the pages in our board books when we read to him. I read to him every day. His current favorites are: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, Are You My Mother? and Curious Kitten.
A few stats about Aiden at five months:
Weight: 15 pounds and 10 ounces!
Height: Taller than last month, but won't know exact height until his dr. appt. next month!
Size clothes:3-6 month clothes...what's the deal with clothes being 3 months then jumping to 6 months? We are in a weird in between stage because different brands sizes vary so much.
Sleeping: He is still sleeping about 7-8 hours a night. He still loves being swaddled and he is still sleeping next to me in his Rock N Play. We started transitioning him to the crib for naps, but then he got this nasty little cough and needs to be elevated when he sleeps so we had to regress a little bit, but we are making progress. I'm in no hurry to kick him out so it's fine by me.
Random stuff only parents want to know:
Nicknames: Bubba, Love bug, Hunny, Buddy boy...I could go on all day.
Likes: Grabbing our faces, touching his toes, swimming/bath time, singing, anything music related (I swear as soon as he hears a song or instrument...instant happiness!) and taking walks in our new Ergo360!
Dislikes: Teething, coughing and all of the sudden he hates the Nose Frida. Uh oh.
