5 Month Update!

Parker turned 5 months old on August 18th! Here's the latest on our big guy...

Height: 27 inches

Weight: Approximately 15 1/2 lbs.

Diapers: Moving up to size threes soon!

Clothes: 6 month and 6-9 month sizes (still squeezing into a couple 3-6 month outfits though!)

Health: Possibly teething? Little man drools like there's no tomorrow. 

Sleep: Waking up at least once a night to feed. Bedtime is around 7:30-8:00, wake-up time is usually 7:30ish. Baby boy is taking one morning nap, two afternoon naps and sometimes an evening catnap.

Diet: 100% mamma’s milk, and still all from mamma. Little man continues to shun the bottle.

Baby Gear Love: Parker loves pulling at all the hanging toys on his play mat and putting them right into his mouth. Anything he can chew on is a hit with him, though he has a special fondness for Sophie the Giraffe. Parker’s face lights up when we make her squeak and tuck her next to him in his car seat.

Social: Parker gets to see lots of other babies at Musicology, Mommy and Me Yoga, and mommy's newest activity, Stroller Barre. Everyone comments on how long he is!
Likes: Parker loves when daddy does “airplane” with him, he’ll put on the biggest grin.  He likes when mommy sings (it calms him down when he’s being fussy during diaper and clothing changes). Parker also loves to look at himself in the mirror. He laughs when he’s tickled and when he gets raspberry kisses on his legs and tummy. He knows his nighttime story, Goodnight Moon, and starts kicking his legs with excitement when daddy brings it out to read it to him. He follows all the pages, makes coos and squeals, and kicks with happiness all throughout the story.

Milestones: Parker does tummy time like a champ, now! His head control is now super, and he has especially strong legs (he loves to stand on them). Little man can shimmy 360 degrees while on his back or belly! We’ll put him down on the play mat and he’ll move to a whole different spot. He’s also rolled over, but is not doing repeat performances, hah! Little man loves to grab his feet these days (the "Happy Baby" yoga pose - maybe from doing Mommy and Me yoga??).
