Walt is Five Months!

It’s another monthly birthday! Every month I think I like this one the most, but that keeps evolving with each passing month.  Walt actually celebrated this b-day on the day I got back from Nashville. Luckily he was in a fantastic mood when I picked him up from day care, so we snapped some pics.

What I found during this photo shoot is that his is becoming ridiculously mobile! It was hard to get a pic of him sitting still.  Before the pics, I’ll update on what he’s up to:

  • Walt is a very very very happy and social baby. He loves to be played with and smiles constantly
  • Walt really started belly laughing about a month ago, but now does it on cue and when he’s tickled (see my previous post)
  • He just figured out how to flip from back to tummy. This came out of the blue. One day he was happily immobile, the next day I couldn’t get him to stay on his back!
  • He’s still long and lean. Most of his onesies are too short in the torso. He can squeeze into 6 mo. clothes, but should probably be in 9 mos.
  • Walt goes to bed around 7:00/7:30 and definitely knows when it’s bedtime.
  • After WEEKS of training, he now sleeps comfortably without a swaddle.  As a matter of fact, he’s stopped waking up at all. (I hate to even say this b/c it’s so wonderful and I don’t want to jinx it!)
  • The boy always always always has his mouth open. Chris is a mouth breather, so this is his trait 🙂
  • Walt sits ok with assistance. He’s usually more interested in finding his way to his toes, so ends up in a folded over position. Fancy yoga!
  • The shock of the week was when I stuck my finger in his ever-so-drooly mouth to feel the startings of some teeth on the bottom!

We tried some solid food with him a few weeks ago just for fun. After some reading and discussions with my fellow mommy friends, we’re going to give it another shot soon. Walt definitely shows an interest in food and watches Chris and I intently when we eat.

Birthday boy happy 🙂

See, he’s eye balling his piggies

Extreme close up and probably my favorite pic 🙂
