Todd: Five Months Old

Five Month Stats
Weight: 17 pounds 10 ounces (taken yesterday at the pediatrician)
Height: 26 inches (taken at home)
Diapers: Size 3 
Clothes: 6 Month and 9 Month clothes, 9 Month PJs (his thighs got too big for his 6 month PJs haha) 
Eating: Nurses six times in a 24 hour period. Five times during the day (every 3 hours) and then once in the middle of the night, after about 8-10 hours of sleep. We will start solids with him soon! 
Sleeping: Today of all days is not the day for me to talk about his sleep! He had a horrible night between croup and rolling..he's a MESS. He still doesn't know how to roll back to tummy and he's only comfy to sleep on his he rolls to his back 1-10 times a night and gets pissed! Okay, so it's usually once, but last night was bad. He goes to bed at 7pm and doesn't eat until around 2-4 am, then sleeps til 7ish am. He's kicking butt with naps and is taking 3 solid naps, usually 1.5-2 hours for the first two naps and then a cat nap in the evening. One day this week he took 2 2+ hour naps so he didn't need his cat nap.

New Things!
*Was diagnosed yesterday with his second case of croup and his first ear infection. He's on a steroid for the croup and antibiotic for the ear infection. Still a happy, happy guy!
*LOVES his bottle! Crazy! Can even hold it himself sometimes. Takes 5-6 ounces once every other day. Only takes breast milk...I got formula samples and he hates it.
*Can hold onto toys and of course puts things straight in his mouth. 
*Loves pulling his pull toys on his car seat. During car rides I just hear his toys going the whole time. 
*Loves rolling onto his back in the middle of the night....
*Loves his hands. Meserized by them. 
*So, so, so close to rolling back to tummy...cannot come soon enough. 
*Seriously seems like he's teething...but I said this for months and months with Embry.
*Wearing his amber teething necklace now.
*Seems close to sitting up, the pediatrician predicted he'd be an early sitter, but he's not there quite yet. 
*Just adores Embry. Finds her in the room at all times and smiles and giggles at her. Even when she's bugging him...hah.
*Loves his baths, getting water poured on his head he kicks and goes WILD. 
*Getting very easily distracted when nursing. If I want him to get a good feeding and stuff is going on, I sometimes have to leave the busy room and feed him in his room.
