Nathan: 5 Months

To my little man,


You are 5 months old today!


It seems like each month is racing past even faster than the month before! Every day is an exciting adventure for you and we are really enjoying watching you discovering the world around you.


You are definitely much more interested in your toys and other objects (Mommy's wallet, Mommy's Keys, basically Mommy's anything) and can bring anything to you mouth with perfect precision. Your favorite thing to chew on (as Mommy predicted) is you feet. I have been told that baby feet are particularly delicious and you certainly seem to think so! You are staring to get much more interested in meal times with Mommy and Daddy and you have almost spilled Mommy's dinner on the floor a few times. I'm sure you are looking forward to starting solid food next month!


At the beginning of the month we moved you into your own room. We did it slowly in stages: for a week or so we kept you in our room but moved you to your baby swing to sleep at night, then we moved the swing to the nursery and kept you in there for another week. (The first few days were really hard for Mommy but she made it through; you didn't seem to notice any difference!) Then we spent a few days doing all of your naps in the crib and the swing at night. Now you are sleeping in your crib full time in your own room and it's going pretty well so far. I was actually quite surprised at how smoothly you took to the change; and to be completely honest Mommy and Daddy are happy to have their own room back! You are still waking up once or twice during the night but Mommy is happy to take 10-15min to nurse you at night (at least for now!).


Don't grow up too fast my sweet boy; your Mommy can't handle it!

With Love to the Moon and back,

Mommy & Daddy
