5 months

Time again to do another update! Seems like the months just keep going faster!! I can't believe my little munchkin is already 5 months old. And next month he will be half a year old! Ack! It makes me happy and a little sad at the same time. I love watching him grow, but I will miss him being little too! Anyhoo, here's the monthly pic of little mr. It's getting harder and harder to get a good pic of him sitting there...he wants to lunge forward and grab his feet, or the camera, or anything within reach! :)

 Levi at 5 months:

about 18 lbs, weighed at home

I could not get him to lay still long enough to measure him, so not sure!

moving into 6-9 month clothing

still in size 3 dipes

still nursing/pumping, but we've started mixing a little formula at daycare b/c I don't get quite enough

having rice cereal mixed with a little formula. just started 2x a day last week. he doesn't take much at daycare, but he'll usually do pretty good for me. some days he likes it, some days he's not real interested

rolling from back to tummy, and just started getting up on all fours! he's starting to figure out how to push forward when he gets on his hands and knees to get to something

loves being outside

when we get home from daycare the first thing he does when I take him out of his car seat is grab my face and sucks/bites at my cheeks and nose. It's so sweet :) 

Still working on sleeping....some nights are ok, some nights suck. I'm pretty sure we will be doing some sleep-training in the next month or so.

naps are hit and miss. usually he'll take a decent morning one and sometimes a good one in the afternoon. he seems to do better at daycare than at home with naps.

has not been wanting to take a bottle at daycare or from me for the past few weeks. we've tried different bottles, different temps, etc. but he I think we've concluded that he's just being stubborn because he just wants to nurse. I think this also has something to do with him waking up so much at night lately...maybe has his nights and days confused when it comes to eating. he's gotten into a cycle of not eating during the day, so he's hungry at night, then he fills up at night and isn't as hungry during the day. makes sense right? not so much? who knows...

starting to sit up. pretty soon! he still wants to lean forward to get at toys

if he's on a blanket on the floor playing, he'll pull the blanket to get the toys he wants closer
pretty much everyone (grandmas, aunties, etc.) thinks he's working on getting some we'll see what happens in the next few weeks!

that's all I can think of for now, so here are some pictures from the past month!
