Hello all, it’s that time again. I can’t believe another month has come and gone and my sweet baby boy is now 5 months old! His unofficial measurements this month were 17 lbs and 25 inches long. His head circ was 43 cm.
As I mentioned in our last update, Jacob started on some solids. So far he has tried rice cereal, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, and peas. He has yet to get the hang of eating from a spoon. He usually looks surprised when we try to feed him and about 95% of his food ends up back on his bib.
He’s been “talking” like crazy lately and he has learned to blow raspberries so he does that quite frequently.
He celebrated his first Easter and picked up a bug from a girl at church. He spent about two weeks with a cough and a few days with a nasty cold. He is feeling much better now though. Our little trooper was smiling the whole time!!
He also stayed the night away from mom & dad for the first time. He stayed at Grandma Kathy & Grandpa Jim’s while we went to a wedding in Detroit. He did very well and slept the whole night for them.
He is very close to being able to roll from his back to his front and he has pretty much mastered rolling front to back. (Tummy time is officially out) We also bought him a little seat so he can practice sitting up. He LOVES to practice sitting and standing. His legs are very strong and with a little help in the beginning he can pull himself up from a sitting to a standing position. He has discovered his feet which are often in his hands now. He has yet to stick them in his mouth though! (I’m not sure with his big belly he could bend that much)
