Family Fridays: Alexander at 5 Months

Another month has flown by and Alexander is now 5 months old. This last month has been a bit easier (than the couple before it), as Alexander has been napping more than 20 minutes at a time again. Now he'll he'll usually take at least one long nap of about 2 hours and often one or two other 1 hour naps. He's still not super great at sleeping at night, but a lot of nights now he'll sleep 5 hours in a row, and I'll take whatever I can get. He has also been happier and more easy going again. In fact he is super smiley guy lately. This is a fun stage of babyhood.

At 5 months:
  • He is quite vocal and babbles a lot.
  • He can push himself backwards when he is on his tummy.
  • He can roll from front to back and back to front, but doesn't often, because he has a tendency to roll off our play-mat and hit his head on the hard fake wood floor.
  • He seriously wants to try eating everything and loves tasting anything that we let him, but is still growing fine on primarily just milk.
  • He is 17 pounds 12 ounces and 27.5 inches.
  • He is wearing 9 month clothing now.
  • He really wants to do everything his big brothers do. And I have never seen a baby show such determination and persistence as this little one. At this point motor skills don't seemed to be his natural gift (like Andrew), but he like he will eventually learn anything he wants through sheer determination.
  • He loves to give kisses now (especially to mommy).
  • His brothers like to jump in whenever I am trying to get pictures of just the baby.
  • He can drool A LOT!
