Playing Catch Up : 5 Months

Ahh! I've been so bad at keeping up with our family blog. As you can imagine since B is now 6 months old he has changed so much. However, I will try and only write this post about his 5 month experiences.

During the 5th month the most exciting thing was we started B on solids. We started first with rice cereal, then oatmeal, then wheat. He loved all three. Next we started veggies. Sweet potatoes were first and were a hit. Next was squash which was also yummy. Next was peas which literally made him gag. I hate to say it was funny but it was. He does ok with green beans but loves carrots. So basically any orange veggie is a hit and anything green is a no-go. That will have to change!

Sleeping: We tried to have him start sleeping unswaddled but it was unsuccessful. He would cry and cry and wake himself up with his hands. We went back to swaddling. He is still taking 3 naps a day.

He is much more active and aware. He reaches for the dogs, reaches for toys, and reaches out to grab mommy and daddy's faces to give kisses. He is sitting up with assistance.
