Campbell: 5 Months Old

Sweet little chick-a-dee, here is what you are up to at 5 months old:
 You are eating cereal and you like it ok.  I have mixed a little bit of fruit in it and have found out that you LOVE bananas and HATE applesauce.  I can't wait for you to start baby food next month!  I am interested in seeing what kind of eater you will be!

You are rolling all around.  You figured out how to roll from your back to your belly and now you are on the move.  When you are on your belly you push your self up and straighten your arms then you will move your knees but you never do them at the same time.  You want to be on the move so bad.  Once you figure out how to put the two motions together you are never going to stop.

Speaking of never stopping....you NEVER stop moving, I mean NEVER.  You are always wiggling in our laps or when we carry you.  Even when you sleep you move.  You twitch and twist and squirm in your sleep.  You are wild!
You prefer to sleep on your side.

You are a talking machine.  You talk most of the day and make the funniest sounds.

When you are hungry you mean business.  You cry until you see or hear your bottle and then the legs get to kickin' and you just can't wait.  You reach for it and pull it to your mouth.  You are very close to being able to hold your bottle all by yourself.

If you are awake you must be sitting upright.  You do not like to recline.  You must be able to see what is going on at all times.  I think you will be sitting up on your own in the next few weeks. 
 You found your feet and like to hold them when I change your diaper or when you are sitting on our laps.

You love any kind of remote control, especially your Sesame Street remote.  You go crazy when you see it.

You put everything in your mouth. You put your blankie, shirt, sleeve, fingers, toys...in your mouth.

Your favorite songs right now are Patty Cake and I'm a Little Tea Pot.  You smile and giggle when we do the hand motions.

You are usually in bed between 7:00 and 8:00 and you sleep until 3:30 or 4:00, I feed you and then you go back to sleep until 6:30 or 7:00.

You do not nap during the day.  You sleep for about 20 mins twice a day and that is it.

You are a pretty good shopping buddy and you like it when we go out to eat for dinner!  You are pretty go with the flow!
You are wearing size 3 diapers.

You wear 6-9 month clothes.

You have thrown 2 HUGE fits.  I mean arched back, screaming, red faced make yourself sweat fits. 

You are pretty dramatic about everything.  I think I am going to have my hands full with you.

You are a happy baby 99% of the time and I love how your little personality is starting to shine through. 

Your laugh makes me melt.

Cole is still hands down your favorite person.  Period.

You have started grabbing my face and pulling it to you and then licking my check.  I'm guessing this is your version of a kiss and I love it!

Basically you are too cute for words and a total joy!  We love you Campbell!
