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)
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.
Oh Wyatt, we are having so much fun being your mommy and daddy! I love watching you explore your world and look at everything new. Your happiness is contagious and so pure. What a joy you are.
