I can’t believe my baby is five months old already! I feel like every day goes slowly and at the same time passes by so quickly. I’m trying to appreciate the moments that we’ve been given by writing on here to keep memories of my baby growing up. So here goes nothing!
Height/Weight: The last time Eesa was weighed was at his 4 month appointment, where he weighed 13.5lbs and his height was 60cm. He’s always been on the lower end of the scale, but we love his size! He often gets mistaken for older than he is.
Daily: Eesa’s days consist of playing, eating and sleeping. He usually starts off around 8-8:30am with a feeding, and then we put him in his crib and he talks himself to sleep. He naps until about 11:30am. When he wakes up I feed him, and then we do independent play time while I make/have breakfast. Once he’s done with that, we sing some nursery rhymes together, and then we do some time in the jolly jumper while I clean up the bedrooms. He’s been loving the jolly jumper! After that he takes a nap from around 2:00pm to 5:30pm. Once he’s done napping we usually go out for the day, if not we play until bedtime, which is about 9:00pm.
Bedtime: Eesa is an amazing sleeper. We are truly blessed. At 9:00pm I feed him, put him down in his crib, tell him goodnight and walk out the door. He is usually asleep within 1-3 minutes, and this is true for 90% of the time. Naps go the same way.
Eating: We started solids last month with purees (banana, avocado, carrots, and oat cereal) and this month we’ve moved on to baby led weaning. He is very good at it, and can easily guide the food to his mouth. He sucks on it more than he eats, but that’s the point at his age! We started baby led weaning with some sweet potato, and will soon move on to other foods 🙂
Sizes: He is currently wearing size 3-6 months and he fits into them comfortably. He still has at least 1-2 months before he outgrows them. He also wears size 4-6months.
Here are some of the things he’s learned recently:
- Can sit up on his own for a few minutes at a time
- Can roll over from back to front and front to back
- Can take items out of baskets
- Can grab with both hands and guide to his mouth
- Turning himself when on his tummy in all directions
That’s all for now! I love him more and more each day and can’t wait for what’s to come! Looking forward to writing on here more often.
