5 Months

Aiden will be 6 months in 11 days...about time I posted a 5 month update. December has been kind of a crazy month, so we just got around to taking photos. It may also have had something to do with Mommy's delay in knitting a hat she wanted to use in December photos. I didn't finish it until after Christmas, but it was definitely worth waiting for in my opinion. Super cute, right?

At five months Aiden:

-is wearing mostly 6 months clothes, though he still fits in a few 3-6 month things
-not sure exactly what he weighs, but he is getting bigger by the minute
-is eating about 10 oz and a little cereal while Mommy is at work and every 3-4 hours when she is home
-is quite interested in any food or drink you might have near him
-is still sleeping only 4 hours or so at a time (he likes to eat) and often ends up in bed with Mommy

-is sucking his thumb
-is chomping on everything and drooling like a mad man
-I'm pretty sure we are working on a tooth

-is rolling and scooting all over the floor
-is wanting to stand up often
-is sitting up by himself, sort of. He can do it on the couch or in your lap pretty well, but only for a few seconds on the floor
-loves being upside down

-likes rough and active play
-is very ticklish, especially under his chin
-thinks peek a boo and silly noises are the best thing ever
-shakes his head side to side like he's saying "no" and thinks its pretty funny

-still loves Sophie the giraffe and his assorted blanket animals
-thinks spinning toys and music toys are pretty great
-often freezes and listens intently when he hears music (that's my boy)
-enjoys being outside
-loves his bath and being naked
-still has his tongue out all the time
-is about the cutest thing you ever did see

Loved the hat! Love that little guy more! I can't wait to see him! I won't be able to hold him, but I certainly can play.... Enjoy every moment!!!!! Love, Nancy B
