Wyatt: 5 Months

wyatt5months3

Wyatt turned five months on Sunday. 

I’ll continue to say this each month, but this has been my favorite stage so far! He’s full of smiles and giggles and thinks everything is funny. He can now hold his head up which makes carrying him around a lot easier (even though he’s getting so heavy!)

He has such a fun little personality and I love watching him learn new skills everyday. He’s very curious and is always alert of everything that is going on around him.

Weight: I’d guess around 15 pounds (you don’t go in for a 5th month doctor appointment so we won’t get his official stats until next month)

Length: I’d guess around 28 inches. He’s getting SO long.

Hair: brown (seems to be getting a little lighter maybe)

Eyes: Blue

Nicknames: Wy, Wy Guy, Wy-Wy, Mr. Man. Mr. Stinky 

Likes: Singing and music. We sing to him all day long, making up crazy silly lyrics and going nuts singing the same songs over and over. He currently loves “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed” He also is so proud to be holding his head up. He likes staring at picture books and checking out new toys. 

Dislikes: Going down for a nap, going to bed at night, and waking up from a nap. 

Clothing and Diapers: He’s in a mix and match of 0-3 month and 3-6 month clothing. Still in size 1 diapers. We are still using cloth diapers when we are at home.

Sleep: We are struggling! Most nights he’s still sleeping in his bassinet that is attached to our bed, but any day now he’s going to be too long for it. We’ve been trying to transition him to his crib, but are failing. He slept a full night in his crib once. The four-month sleep regression is no joke. He still wakes up about 1-2 times a night to eat. He’s an okay napper -taking 3 consistent naps a day. We follow the Eat, Play, Sleep, Repeat routine. 

Feeding: He eats every 3 hours (or less during the day.) Still exclusively breast-fed. Looking forward to adding some veggies next month!

Milestones: Holding up his head and chest during tummy time. Sitting up in his bumbo seat. Reaching out and grabbing toys and everything else in his sight. Rolling over. Laughing all the time. Almost saying “hi!”. Holding up his head when we hold him.

He loves cell phones and tries to grab and play with it during our nightly facetime dates with Grammy. 

Wyatt still can’t live without his wubanubs. He also has a few favorite stuffed animals.

What I want to remember:

The way he lights up when we sing to him.

How happy he is to see Daddy whenever he comes home.

His reaction to the snow. 

How excited he his when he discovers a new toy or book.

    I look forward to every day that I get to spend time with Wyatt. His smiles and laughter brighten up my day. 💙

      And he is so lucky to have you in his life!

  • He is such a handsome little man! Look at him holding his head up. How are you liking the cloth diapers? I have read so many people debating the whole cloth vs pampers and it always left me curious for a real view on it.

    • kwalshmac

      He’s so proud to hold his head up and sit up! I really like the cloth diapers, but we still use disposables 50% of the time as well. I should really do a cloth diapering 101 post soon. They are really not that much harder than disposables.

    Katie, he is so precious!!! I hope to set a day and time when I can go to your Mothers house to play with him!!! (my very first play date)

    • kwalshmac

      Thank you! He’s such a happy and curious little guy. I hope you can stop by soon.

  • I love how much his personality shines through in the pictures you share!

    • kwalshmac

      That’s so sweet! He has such a big and bright smile, it lights up his whole face (and my day)

  • I can’t handle how cute he is. he’s just so jolly!

  • Ugh!! Him in that “baby it’s cold outside” outfit…I DIE. I’m seriously impressed with him holding his head up…it really is big. And I don’t mean that in a shitty way. I’m sure there’s a big ole’ brain in there!! happy hump day love!
