Happy 5 Months Troy!

Happy 5 Months Troy!
This month I feel like you are really moving out of the newborn phase. You are stronger and more alert. You interact with us more. You smile more and we can get you to smile easily at us by talking to you or singing to you.110126-IMG_7975.jpg
You learned to grab things (purposefully) this month. You can pull on the toys that hang from your car seat. I’m hoping that maybe, just maybe, this means you’ll start to be able to entertain yourself in the car. We still don’t know why you have such trouble in the car . . . you often scream when there seems to be no reason for it. We’re hoping that won’t continue much longer. You also like to chew on your shirt or fingers, and you’ve been chewing a lot more just in the past few days. I wouldn’t be surprised if your first tooth broke through during this next month.
You are really good at holding yourself up now, and you will often hold yourself up for many minutes while you lay on the floor or in your crib. 110211-IMG_9743.jpg
You learned to stick your tongue out this month. You are quite funny when you stick your tongue out at us! 110209-IMG_9410.jpg
You’ve had a few spells where you’ve slept better at night . . . I’m hoping that you’ll keep making progress towards sleeping through the night.  You’ve also started sleeping for longer stretches during the day. Up until this past month most of the time you just wanted to take many short, short naps during the day. Now you usually take a few longer naps.


You tried oatmeal for the first time this month. You didn’t seem to like it, and you really didn’t seem interested in trying it at all. Hopefully you’ll be more interested in solid food when it is a fruit or veggie. It won’t be long before you are trying those!


We love you so much!
