Happy 5 months to my studly little L-Pop!
Weight: A little over 17 pounds (he was a little over 16 at his 4 month checkup)
Height: 26 inches
Clothing size: A few 3 month, but mostly 6 & 6-9
Shoe Size: 2, sometimes 3
Diaper size: 3
Feeding: We did cereal a few mornings this month, maybe once or twice a week, and avocado a few nights. He threw up after eating avocado on two different occasions, so I decided to hold off on any foods besides breastmilk for a few more weeks. I'm going to try again closer to 6 months.
Sleep: Liam is FINALLY back to sleeping 6-8 hours a night...IN HIS CRIB! The hardest part is the very beginning of the night--he goes down at 9, and almost always wakes up within an hour. I'm working on him learning to self-soothe himself back to sleep, but normally I have to go in and nurse him back to sleep. After that initial wake-up, though, he usually sleeps until 5 or 6, wakes to eat, then goes back to sleep until 9. LOVING IT!
Milestones: Liam started to kind of sit up a little over a month ago, but within the last two weeks, has gotten to where he's sturdy and can go long stretches without falling. He looks sooo cute sitting up!
Adventures: We went to a museum this month, and even though he's far too young to really enjoy it, he was very entertained with people watching and seeing all the different colors, sights & sounds.
Mommy and Daddy could not get through the month without: Lots of PJ's & lots of patience! It seemed like we went through two pairs of pj's a night a few nights a week due to throw up/diaper blowouts.
