I love these early stages of babyhood because they are always accomplishing things and meeting new milestones. At just five months old, I’m already seeing so much of Macks’ personality. Gone are the days when all he did was eat, sleep, and poop. Now he’s easily entertained by his sisters and is on much more of a predictable schedule. It’s amazing how in just five short months all of the things our little ones are able to learn and accomplish. Here are five things that Macks is doing at five months old.
Pulling His Sister’s Hair
Macks like to grab and pull nearly everything in sight. But he’s managed to perfect the art of hair pulling, especially with his sisters.
Although he’s very active and likes to squirm and roll everywhere, he does love a good cuddle. He fell asleep on my chest over the weekend, which he hasn’t done since he was a newborn. It felt so good to have him do that again.
Roll Around the Room
He just mastered the art of rolling over a couple of months ago and now he’s rolling all over the room. I’ll put him down in one spot and two minutes later, he’s all the way across the other side of the room.
Macks went in the swing at the playground for the first time last week. Although he’s not completely sitting up unassisted, he does have some control. As soon as I put him in, he was laughing and giggling. He could have stayed in it for hours.
We just moved Macks into his crib a couple of weeks ago and as soon as I put him in, I noticed he rolled over to his belly to sleep. It makes me so nervous, but he prefers it and the pediatrician assured me it was fine since he was doing it on his own. All of my kids have been tummy sleepers, so I guess he’s just joining the ranks of his sisters.
