Every day I have moments of awe where I quietly marvel at my good fortune of having baby E in my life. Yep, this cynical girl does this every single day at least once. I can't believe that five months of this bliss have already passed. Wasn't it just yesterday that I had my heart stomped on by another baby making failure?
So, today we celebrate five months with baby E by of course taking his picture...
This month has really been filled with a number of changes in him. It blows me away to see new things pop up each week.
Weight: 13 lb 9 oz which puts him in the 10th percentile
Height: 24 in which puts him in the 10th percentile
Head: 41 which puts him in the 3rd percentile
Food: Formula, usually 24 oz in 4 oz increments; and as of two days ago cereal!
Activities: Grabbing at toys, excessive drooling, putting toys in mouth, rolling from tummy to back, scooting in a circle by swinging legs
Mommy's favorite moment: the look on his face as he discovered his toes! "I have toes mommy!" Many minutes have been filled with this new play thing.
Adventures: went on his first plane rides to California, then Florida, and back to Alaska! He did a great job sucking on his binky during take off and landing which really kept his ear pressure okay. People remarked that they didn't even know there was a baby on the plane!
Sleep: in his crib with the swaddle gone! During vacation he decided to start sleeping for eight hours. EIGHT! Now, I think we're growing and waking up every four hours to eat. Hungry boy.
