You are FIVE months old! Time is flying! Your favorite thing these days are your feet, any chance you get you love to grab them and put them in your mouth, You are working on sitting up, you can do several seconds unassisted if you start in a balanced place, but sooner or later you always topple. You are also happier just hanging out on your back. I've been able to have you hang happily in your bassinet on occasion and you'll just play with a toy or your feet and chatter away.
We don't have a 5 month ped appointment, so I don't know how much you've grown, but you continue to eat like a champ and grow in strength all the time. You still don't have a schedule for life, naps are every few hours or so and last anywhere from 20 minutes to two hours on a rare good day. I count one hour long nap a day as a success. You are too interested in the world to want to sleep.
You are full of smiles. When Daddy comes home, you light up. When you see your sitter or your sister, the grin fills your face. You like to be held up high above our heads, you like to be snuggled to our chests, you like to sit on our laps facing out, seeing the world. Every chance you get you stand on straight legs. You are starting to notice that you aren't mobile and it's starting to frustrate you. Not too much, but I can see your eyes following your sister and you can't wait to chase her.
You babble a lot these days, you have a lot to say! If anyone is having a conversation, you want to be part of it. I tell you all the time, but oh man are you adorable!
