Dear Little Man,
You are already 5 months old! You are doing so much at 5 months and you have become your own little person. You have the best smile and giggles and you light up the room wherever you go...(OK, so you only go visit your very biased family or the grocery store, but still).
You are not quite eating big kid food yet, but over the last couple of weeks you tried banana, sweet potato, and squash and you loved all of them. We are going to officially start food at 6 months. You are still drinking mama's milk like it's going out of style and you are growing so big! You still eat every 2 hours during the day and have made it so far without any formula supplements.
You are wearing 6-9 month clothes, although you should probably be wearing 9-12 month clothes. You have a very strong body and big thighs like mama and daddy had when they were little (and one of us has now post-baby). You probably weigh over 20 lbs now, but we won't know for sure until you are weighed at your next appointment. You wear size 3 diapers and your shoes are 6-12 months.
Daycare is one of your favorite places to go. Your Baba and Deda take such good care of you and you love your little friends. You love sitting outside and watching all the big kids play. The other day you saw the leaves flying and you were trying to catch them with your tongue, silly boy. You are starting to get a little bit of separation anxiety and are drawn to your parents if we go somewhere with unfamiliar people.
Sleeping is going well. You like to party until 10 or 11 at night and then fall asleep until your tummy wakes you up to eat any time between 2:00 and 3:30 and then eat every 2-3 hours again until the morning. You like to sleep in and Papa wake you up for daycare at 7:30. You give a sweet little smile to start the day and I'm pretty sure it melts Papa's heart.
You love your playmat, Sophie, and anything you can put in your mouth. Mama and Papa just set up your jumperoo and high chair and those are the jam right now too. You also just discovered your big brother Chino and you love watching him and even petted him for the first time the other day.
Baby Bear- we love you so very much! You are a happy, happy boy and have brought so much joy to our lives. We can't imagine life without your smiles, dinosaur shrieks, and blowout poops.
