Here we are at 5 months. N started off the month by rolling over from back to front for the first time! He was SO proud of himself, and continues to enjoy this newfound ability. He graduated from swaddling and now enjoys the freedom to kick and wiggle all night long. He’s upped his food intake considerably, adding 10-15oz a day for a total of 35-45oz each day. One week ago, his weight was 15lbs, 13oz. He smiles when he sees us, showing off his dimples. His laughs have also become more frequent and his “conversations” more energetic. His favorite game involves walking slowly toward someone. The anticipation of arrival cracks him up EVERY time. He is enjoying being read to more and more. He also loves the feel and taste of stuffed animals. He has found his thumb (and all his other fingers) and utilizes it when a pacifier is not readily forthcoming. He is reaching and grabbing things he is interested in–usually Dad’s face or something brightly colored. Due to some health issues, Pop moved out from our house into Tim’s aunt’s this month. We all miss him, and he misses Nathan especially. We visit him several times a week.
