Baby boy’s fifth month came so quickly!
We spent the entire month going back and forth between two cities and planning/packing for our move. As a result, our little guy had to get used to entertaining himself a bit more often as we worked. He started rolling around like crazy, giving us some genuine laughter, learning to sit up on his own, and became more adept at grabbing toys and putting them in his mouth. He also began developing a bit more stranger anxiety. I put him in the church nursery for the first time and he didn’t (at first) do as well as he had done in daycare at 2 and 3 months old. I also paid a friend to babysit while I packed, and he cried a lot at first.
He is doing much better about riding in his carseat, though! He has always hated the carseat but this past month was the first in which he didn’t have as many total meltdowns. He is still eating and sleeping well and he enjoys when mama and papi play with him at the same time.
His babbling has begun to sound more like he is trying to say real words. It’s super cute, and he drools all the time.
We are definitely looking forward to seeing what the next couple of months bring!
