Isaac @ 5 Months Old :)

Isaac is 5 months old now. Where has the time gone? I cant believe were this close to half a year! In some ways it seems to have flown, and in others well, its been an exhausting 5 months, let me tell you. Sleepless nights, constant work during the day but all worth it! 🙂

I didnt do a 4-month post because last month was so crazy, what with my husband having thumb surgery twice and my parents moving back to the state. Last I updated, Isaac was rolling over tummy to back and back to tummy (at 3 months). So much has happened in the month since I updated! He is sitting up very well now and is eating solid foods. He loves his big sister, Emma, who will do absolutely anything for him, too. She is the sweetest big sister, I love to watch them together.

At 3-4 months, he was pretty dependent on me to play with him constantly and keep him company on the floor when he was awake. Now hes doing better at playing by himself with toys, mainly because he can sit up. Its a feat hes very proud of accomplishing, and he prefers to be sitting up all of the time now. But NOT in the Bumbo he pretty much rolls right out of that now. He doesnt like being restrained at all!

He has such bright smiles and a cute little belly laugh when hes being played with its his favorite thing to do, play with his daddy, mommy, or sister. He especially loves to have his feet tickled or kissed. Speaking of feet, this is the way I find him many times during the day

I know it looks like he has lots of hair in this picture, its actually cradle cap lol

Hes eating solid foods three times a day now! Hes a hungry little guy. Hes had bananas, peas, carrots, mashed potatoes, rice cereal, oatmeal, and squash so far. His favorite is the rice cereal and carrots, but hell eat it all. Except peas, which came right back out as soon as I spooned it in.

He makes this really funny, adorable face with his tongue sticking out determinedly sometimes. I love it!

He is NOT a fan of tummy time.

But nothing brings him more joy than having someone support him in the standing position! He even takes steps already he is very ready to get moving.

I wonder if hell skip crawling and go straight to walking?

Isaac still sleeps through the night in his swing (something I discovered at 2 months worked for getting him to sleep well). Hes getting pretty big, though I doubt hell fit much longer! Hes already sitting up in it. 🙂

Isaacs little Angels Kiss/Stork Bite on his forehead has faded a bit but is still there. It doesnt bother me at all, and I dont even remember its there until someone asks me a silly question like:

  • Does he sleep with his forehead down on the floor?
  • Did he hit his head and bruise it?
  • Does he have a brain tumor?

Okay, nobody actually asked me that last one. 😉 But so far no one seems to know what a Stork Bite is! Good thing were here to educate them. lol
