5 Months Young!

I'm 5 months old today, and it's been a crazy 5 months! I learned to roll over, I've eaten avocados, sweet potatoes and bananas, I sleep without being swaddled, I stick out my tongue, and I'm working on sitting up!

Many of you may be wondering what it is I do all day, so here it is. I spend a lot of time hanging out with my daddy during the day - reading, playing, walking the doggies, taking baths, and of course, eating. My mommy gets home in the evening for more playtime! Here's a rough schedule:

6am: Wake up, eat, play
8am: Nap time
10am: Eat, play
11am: Walk with the doggies
12:30pm: Nap time
2pm: Eat, play
4pm: Nap time
6pm: Eat, play
8pm: Bath
8:30pm: Nap time
9:30pm: Nighttime snack
10pm: Sleep

Sound like a lot to do? Well, it is. So much in fact that I often wonder if my parents will be able to keep up this pace. They aren't 5 months old after all. I hope they're getting naps, too! This is me falling asleep at the gym:

Ok, so about that eating. Avocados: awesome. They were my first food, so maybe I'm being a little partial, but they're filling, nutritious, and very tasty! At least I thought so until I had sweet potatoes. They're a little sweeter, and also supposed to be great for me. A little drier than those avocados, so it took a lot of milk to make them soft enough. Here is an action shot:

Last weekend I started on bananas. Those are very soft and very tasty. I can eat 1/3 of a banana in just 9 minutes, and it's only going to get better!

So you may have noticed that I go on walks almost every day. I love it outside, especially with this spring weather. There is a park nearby with a pond, and we walk over there and around the pond. There are always some geese (saw their goslings yesterday) and when it's sunny I usually see a few turtles. Check them out!

That's all for now. Sorry I haven't written in a while, but as you can see, I've been busy. For now, I'm off to enjoy my 5 month birthday!
Your pal,


  1. Happy Birthday my dear sweet little man! You certainly are growing up fast! Your days sound tiring, and I really don't know how your Daddy and Mommy keep up with you.....but it's only going to get more exciting when you begin to crawl and walk and then run!
    I can't wait to see you again!

  2. You really are a busy little person. Lovely pictures of you. Happy five month!
    Love Auntie Eva
