We should have realized that getting up only 1 time per night was too good to be true. Paisley hit the 5 month mark and suddenly it was party time at mid-night and again at 2:00am. This makes for a ROUGH night of sleep!!!
In general, the 5 month mark has been a bit rough all around. Besides the sleep issue (or lack there of I should say) we also have spotted 2 bottom teeth pushing through. They haven't popped out of the gums yet, but they are visible. They are awfully cute but causing havoc with our little guy.
|"Mom, why didn't this come with motor?"|
We officially have a roller! The second we lay him on his back he rolls to his belly. At night, after he rolls he scoots his knees underneath him and sleeps with his bottom up in the air. I'm not sure how comfortable it is, but it is awfully cute. When we lay him on the floor he rolls to his stomach and uses his legs to scoot around. He's determined to get from point A to point B. Once he figures how to coordinate his arms with his legs, our baby proofing skills will be put to the test.
A few firsts we got to experience this month;
-New Years Eve (our little guy went to two parties! And we didn't get home until the New Year!)
-First time bowling
-First hockey game (Paisley enjoyed the view from a suite in the Ford Center)
-First time eating cereal (He got the hang of the spoon pretty quick and acted like he was eating peanut butter)
-Being read to! I had know idea a 5 month old could be so attentive!
-Bouncing in his Jumperoo
-Knocking over his cloth blocks
-His Leap Frog Dog Scout
-Listening to Scott and I talk
-Hearing his mom or dad sing
-Laying on his changing table naked and kicking
|"What Mom? I'm just playing with Scout."|
-Being laid down for bed
-Not being in the same room as mom & dad
-Being woken up before he is ready
We've almost made it to the 6 month mark of being exclusively breastfed. That is a huge feat and we are so thankful for everyday we can say that. We're crossing our fingers the next month brings a better sleep cycle and baby teeth that clear the gum line.
Until next month.....
