{Luke} Five Months

Happy Five Months, Luke!

Luke weighs 15 pounds 8 oz.
He wears size 3-6 months clothes
He wears size 3 diapers

I can't believe we are just weeks away from him being six months- half a year old! So many milestones start happening at six months that I am excited for (food!) but also I am not wishing the days away.

This month had its share of challenges. In his four month update I shared how Luke was starting to drool alot and liked chewing on his hands. That continued through July but included a sleep strike that left Ian and I totally useless for a couple of days! Whether it was teething or growth spurt related we will never know.

Our little buddy is back to his normal schedule. He nurses really fast and he currently wants to be held constantly when he is awake. He's started reaching for cups and spoons when we are eating so starting food next month will be fun!

6 am- Up for the day, feeds.
7:15- Nap
9:30- Wakes up, Feeds
10:30- Sometimes naps but most days we run errands in this time and he cat naps in the car
12:30- Feeds
1:00 pm- Nap
3:30- Wakes up, Feeds
5:00- Naps
5:45- Wakes up
7:00- Bed time!

Luke still doesn't roll over but he loves to sit or stand assisted.

He loves suck on his thumb now to fall asleep. We take him up to his room when he is fully awake, lay him down, and he rolls over onto his left side, puts his thumb into his mouth, and falls asleep. Easy peasy.

Sophie the giraffe is still a favorite toy and he talks to himself sometimes.
