Playing Catch Up

 I had every intention to post about Garrett’s 5th month right around the time he turned 5 months (which was on Thanksgiving…but clearly that didn’t work out) so here is a quick run down of what we’ve been up to and even though he’s 5 1/2 months now I’m hoping to be more efficient when he turns 6 months which is on Christmas Eve (pretty special isn’t it : )

  • Weight (won’t find out until our 6 month well check but I’m going to guess around 18lbs
  • Height….same as above but I’ll guess around 27-28 inches (he’s going to outgrow his car seat before I know it!
  • Sleeping from about 7:30 or 8:00 until about 4 or 5 o’clock when he wakes up for a quick feed and then falls back asleep until about 7 or 7:30
  • Eating about 6 or 7 oz at a time and like a champ (although you wouldn’t know it because he’s got his Daddy’s skinny genes and big feet : )
  • Eats solids twice a day he prefers pears or bananas mixed with cereal for breakfast and sweet potatoes or peas for dinner
  • Is really good at tummy time, although now he just seems to want to move so he gets a little frustrated with it
  • Talks all the time and feels the need to put everything in his mouth!
  • And is gearing up for what we hope to be a cold and snowy Ohio Christmas!
  • Loves to smile and move….drool and all : )
