I’m still keeping up with monthly photos of B! It’s so fun to look back at them and see how much he’s changed over such a short period of time. Some fun information for you in regards to his weight/height/head circumference:
7lbs 13oz- 70th percentile
20.5 inches long- 50th percentile
14.5 inches around (head)- 70th percentile
17lbs 15.5oz- 80th percentile
27 inches long- 90th percentile
17.5 inches around (head)- 80th percentile
This boy is literally growing before our eyes- he is fitting comfortably into 9mo clothing and some 12mo outfits (I naively thought he would be wearing 12mo in the fall, not summer, but Grandma came to the rescue and sent him a ton of cute outfits to wear in the hot Georgia weather…which hasn’t shown up yet. Hellooooooo spring in the south- where are you?? I feel like I’m living in Washington- seriously 48 degrees in May? Not normal. I’m cold!!)
Anyway, I digress. On to the fun part- the photos! Here’s month 5:
|I love that his personality is really starting to shine. He is in 12mo clothing in this photo.|
And just for comparison, here are months 1-4:
The end of month 4 brought a LOT of firsts for B. He got his two bottom teeth in- and those suckers are sharp!! He also deliberately rolled from tummy to back (he started doing this around 3 months but just figured out HOW to do it recently)- we cheer every time he does it and he gets the BIGGEST smile.
He’s become quite the wiggle worm in his crib too- we put him down facing one direction and he can wiggle all the way around to face the other direction by the end of a nap. He also recently started rolling onto his tummy during the night- but doesn’t realize he knows how to do this during the day yet (it’s coming though- and I think some form of crawling isn’t far behind that). He also can sit unsupported for a few seconds at a time.
It’s hard to believe that in less than a month he will be 6 months old- and we will be starting solids!! I’m excited and terrified at the same time- we had so many tummy troubles with him at the start of his life, I don’t want to start all over with those again. Can’t he just be on a liquid diet until he’s 20?! He’s really starting to show signs that he’s ready though, so it’ll be really fun to see him try out new tastes and textures.
I can’t believe how fast time goes when you are a parent- but I’m enjoying every second of it!
