The Wilde Olive Blog: Jonah: 5 Months


Jonah: 5 Months

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

 Jonah turned 5 months old on March 19th and I feel like he’s changed the most over the past month than any before. I’ll probably be saying that again next month, but for now it’s true. Since it's been a few weeks, MUCH has changed already, but I made most of these notes the week he turned 5 months!

At FIVE months old Jonah…

"talks" ALL the time!
 gives the sweetest smiles
and is very attentive..taking it all in.

Also, Jonah...

• is about 15lbs (we’ll check his height next month)

• has some serious baby chub going on especially in the thighs!

• still has blue eyes

• is still going blonde or red – don’t quite know yet

• is wearing mostly 3-6 month clothing and size 1 shoes

• can hold his bottle (CAN but doesn’t always WANT to – that’s okay mama will do it)

• can sit up on his own for mintes at a time (he does this really well on his changing table)

• tried solid food for the first time

• went to his first parade (and second)

• became a BIG cousin for the first time (Jonah and Jude are exactly 5 months apart)

• sleeps exclusively in his crib at home and through the night most night

• sleeps on his side in a swaddle – but usually gets his arms out

• HATES his carseat most of the time

• likes being in the carrier

• went on his first forward facing stroll

• laughs often at everything and nothing

• loves other kids – he watches those cousins like no one else exists!

• will have quiet time in his crib with Scout for about 10-20 minutes without napping

• tries to grab everything out of your hands

• holds on to your shoulder when carrying him

• pulls hair

• loves to shake things (rattles, toys, necklaces, keys-I have to watch him on that one)

• loves his toys (play gym, sophie, winkle boxed toy, his owl and Bee at NaNa’s)

• is an aspiring quarter back or pitcher – loves to throw things and they go far!

• grabs your face

• still loves to look at himself in the mirror

• is liking tummy time much better

I know I say it enough, but my life has changed and this kid is the center of my universe! LOVE HIM!
