Five months seems like we are really well into this baby thing. Logan is definitely becoming less of a baby and more of a little boy. His personality is really developing and he is so much fun. He is cooing and babbling more, smiling all the time, and crying a whole lot less than when he was an itty bitty baby. It is rare now that we are stumped with what is wrong or what we can do to make him happy. There are few things he dislikes, and he is exploring more all the time.
In the last month, so much has changed! We had a great trip to Florida with friends, and just this past weekend we went to Dallas. Logan is now “sleep trained” and we are all sleeping great at night. He even has better naps and is happier overall during the day.
He started sitting in his stroller facing forward without the car seat adapter, we opened up the BOB stroller for future longer walks when the weather gets nicer, and he started loving his Jumperoo. It’s his favorite thing right now. We also opened up the high chair, but haven’t used it yet, or started solids, but that’s another story.
He smiles all the time, talks, pays attention to books, to me when I talk to him, and always follows me around a room with his eyes.
At his last doctor’s appointment at 4.5 months old, he weighed 16 lbs, 11 ounces and was 25 inches tall. He was in the 75% for weight and 40% for height. Sounds about right!
Lily is also doing well with her new brother. She still watches him, sits by him, and sits with us when he gets a bottle. We all take walks together, and she is very sweet to him. Mostly, she loves his toys.
This next one is a big one (aren’t they all?). Logan goes to school and mommy goes back to work!
