Cohen ::5 months::

Really? 5 months already?

1 week ago you weighed in at 12 lbs 14 oz, so I'm sure you have hit 13 pounds now. You are also 24 1/2 inches!
-You are in 0-3 months and 3-6 month clothes.
-You still are in newborn shoes!
-You now wear size 2 diapers.

-You can roll from tummy to back and back to tummy. You hardly lay on your back anymore as you almost instantly roll to your tummy.
- You are tripod sitting pretty good!
- You were sleeping pretty good but the last few days, you have been waking up after about 8 hours of straight sleep and then you have trouble going back to sleep.
- Normally, you go down to sleep between 7 & 8, sleep 8-10 hours, eat, then sleep for about 2-4 more.
- You nurse about every 2 1/2-4 hours and will not take a bottle for me and barely take one from your daddy.
- No teeth yet but you drool ALL the time!

-You take 2 good naps a day. Your afternoon nap is the longest and you can sleep about 2-3 hours. Your morning nap is about an hour.
- You love your feet. You found them around 3 months, but lately you have been playing with them a lot more and you like to try and eat them!
- You have a sweet little laugh, though it takes a lot to get you to laugh hard. If we pretend to laugh, you normally get a kick out of that.
- For the most part you are pretty laid back and good at entertaining yourself.

- Just today you have started getting up on your knees and trying to inch further. I REALLY hope you don't crawl soon. I don't want you to grow up!
- We tried cereal 2 weeks ago and you kept pushing your tongue out, so you weren't quite ready. We tried again the other night and while you gave us an awful look, you did eat a little bit. I'm in no hurry this time, because, again, I really don't want you to grow up!
- Your favorite toys right now include this steering wheel toy, a crinkle book, and a ball.

- We got out the jumperoo and you really haven't decided if you like it or not. If you do enjoy it for a little bit, it doesn't normally last long!
- You are mr. fussypants in the evenings, especially around supper time. You are a little needier than your sister was at this age!
- Your hair is slowly growing and getting thicker. Your skin is also getting better, but you almost always have some sort of rash on you.
- Your big sister LOVES and ADORES you and you love the attention she gives you!

I can't believe you are 5 months! Such a big boy! :) We love you!!!
