Ethan's 5 Months Old!

Ethan,

Yet again another month has flown by! Next month you will be half a year old (the panic attack is already starting). You are still long and slim weighing in at 13.6 lbs and measuring 26 inches (by my rough measurment). You are wearing a variety of sizes in clothing - mostly 3 month, some 0-3 month, and some 3-6 month. According to the length you should be in 3-6 month, but your still so slim they swallow you a bit!


The biggest thing that's changed this month is that you are now eating cereal. It's by far the messiest time of the day, but it's also my favorite. You've eaten rice and oatmeal with a little bit of fruit mixed in. You don't seem to mind any flavor changes, so hopefully you won't be a picky eater. I'm sure we will discover more once you start more solids next month.

We've come a long way since this picture!
Your cute personality continues to come out. You seem to be a very giving child. Thank God you aren't in daycare, because you LOVE to share your paci with me. You've also learned how to cough and try to communicate with that on a regular basis. Lola is now your new favorite favorite family. She occasionally tries to bring you her toys and rolls over for you to scratch her belly. She can't wait for you to get big enough to play!



Lola's not the only one rolling over these days! You too have figured out that with multiple rolls or by "creeping" you can go places or turn yourself around to face other directions...like to see the TV or keep an eye on me. Your favorite toys to go for are your soft books, your stuffed sheep, and Lola. You've also gained new flexibility and have a fascination with trying to stick your feet in your mouth.




Rolling away! You love to do this when I'm not paying attention.
 I've been trying to teach you how to sit. You definitely have more upper body strength than you used to, but if I let go you push yourself forward, kick your legs out, and then flip to your back. We have a long way to go, but you'll get it!

Falling Forward...

Kicking out...

On the belly ready to roll!
 You still hate taking baths. I've tried every temperature, putting you in inch by inch and all at once. It doesn't seem to matter. You scream bloody murder every time and it takes a million verses of "You Are My Sunshine" to calm you down. You eventually settle in, relax and pee, but by that time it's time to get out. Maybe one day it will be enjoyable!


Can't wait to see what all you learn this month!

Love,
Mom
