NOLAN'S 5 MONTH UPDATE:
Weight: ?? Will find out at check up in 3 weeks
Height: ?? Will find out at check up in 3 weeks
Clothes Size: 3-6 month/6 month and even some 9 month
Diaper Size: 2 (Still using pampers swaddlers) -
Sleeping Patterns: Sleeping was touch and go this month... Nolan started waking up several times a night again... it took us a while to figure out that he was teething! (At 5 months and 4 days, his first tooth came in and then he immediately was back to his normal sleeping pattern of waking up only once a night :)
Milestones: Teething: Two bottom teeth are officially in. Rolling over from back to stomach and now also from stomach to back very easily. Loves to shake rattles/toys and has also started throwing toys or other objects across the room... Occassionally when he is in his swing and we think he is going to sleep, he grabs his pacifier and swings it around and then we hear is land across the room :). He is starting to sit much better and balance himself some. We introduced some solid food this month too - so far he has tried rice cereal and bannanas. He wasn't exactly crazy about either - but seems to be getting better at keeping some of it in his mouth.
Favorite Memory this Month: Some friends here in Huntsville let us borrow one of the jumping chairs that you hook over the door frame... they look kind of crazy, so I wasn't sure about it. We put him in a few times and he really didn't know what to do and would get bored/upset after a minute or so. About 2 weeks ago, Nolan started trying to jump anytime he was standing (while we were holding him of course) - so, we decided to try the chair again. He loved it. Now it is part of our nightly routine. I LOVE watching him smile and laugh while he jumps in the chair. Josh and I usually join in the jumping too... yes, it is as crazy as it sounds - but so fun. :) "JUMP, Nolan, JUMP!!"
Once again I can't believe how fast Nolan is growing so fast that I feel like when I blink, I miss something. I am so fortunate to be Nolan's Mommy and I love him more each day.
