5 Month Catch Up

Our little one is already 5 months old. How on earth did that happen?! It seems like he just grew up overnight. Let me tell you, we've learned a lot in 5 months. He's teaching us new things each and every day. Mostly we've learned about how much love we have for this tiny human being.

2 months -----> 5 months
just like that

Last time I posted, our little one was just 3 months old. I shared some of our favorite must have baby gear items. Some of those opinions have changed a bit over the past couple of months. We still like both carriers but use the Ergo carrier more than the K'tan. The co-sleeper bassinet was also outgrown more quickly than we would have liked. We ended up moving him to his crib around 3 months, because we felt he needed the extra room. You live and you learn.

3 Months

+ first time rolling from back to tummy (see picture above)
+ you started sleeping in your own crib & on your tummy... talk about parental anxiety!
+ laughing and smiling are a couple of your favorite things
+ you roll onto your tummy but get "stuck" there since you don't roll the other way yet

4 Months

+ you have discovered your feet... they're fun to grab onto
+ peekaboo is one of the funnest games ever
+ blowing raspberries is a new discovery
+ you love anything with buttons, and you love to push those buttons
+ light up toys are a favorite as well

5 Months

+ you touch, grab, and feel everything
+ when we call your name, you definitely know we're talking to you
+ you are drawn to the littlest of details... like zippers on bags, buttons, and tags on items
+ we swear you're getting teeth... you are a drool monster and chew on everything!
+ you are starting to get your knees under you, and we think you will crawl in no time
+ eskimo kisses are fun... and mom is taking advantage of your love for those for now

We can't believe how time has flown!
Speaking of flying, you have already taken two trips on an airplane.
That's a post for another time though.

I can't believe how much more fulfilled our lives have been these past 5 months.
Every day is a new adventure.
We love you, Chase!
