5 months

Guess who turned 5 months old yesterday? This little bunny. We don't have another well visit until he is 6 months but I'm guessing he is getting close to 20 lbs. Huge.

When P was only about 6 weeks old, we went to Thanksgiving dinner at my friend Lisa's. There was a sweet 6 month old baby there and he just seemed so big to me then. I couldn't imagine my little tater tot ever getting to that point. He was so teeny, just snoozing and getting passed around loving arms then.

Now he is an active little person. He constantly wants to be exploring, squealing, singing, laughing, and enjoying the amazing world around him. Music really moves him and you can see his little arms and legs bouncing around as soon as he hears the rhythm.

Currently, we are trying out some different solids. Exciting stuff. Once this guy had a taste of sweet potatoes, there was no denying that he loved food. He had been eyeing our forks for weeks but we got the go ahead from his pediatrician after his last check up so we went for it. Needless to say, he's a happy eater.

Currently, life at 5 months is pretty great. It feels like all at once we've crossed over from newborn-ish into real baby territory. Our days are becoming longer and so much funner. Our sleepy nugget has woken up and is ready to take on the world.


  1. Wow! 5 Months! He looks just like you, such a cutie! We should get our babies together sometime now that you guys are NYers again. What neighborhood did you end up choosing?

    1. Belle, I was just thinking about you today! Yes, we should. We live in Carroll Gardens. You're in PS, right? Let's make plans xx

    2. No, not PS (I wish! It's a little pricey {and crazy family-intense} there), we live on the south side of the park in Prospect Park South, although not for long. We are planning to move (again!) May 1st- we have a couple neighborhoods in mind.. Biet's birthday is mid-May so you MUST come to that (I'm hoping we see each other before then, but just in case). Biet hardly has any baby friends- let's introduce our bambinos!
