Bennett | 5 Months



I know I say this every single month but I really can't believe my baby is already FIVE months old already!! Bennett is so much fun and has hit some pretty fun milestones this past month : )

Weight/Height: I definitely feel like he has put a lot of weight on recently. My guess is 18lbs. He was 25 in. at his 4 month appointment and I think he's still probably around that length. 

Hair: Oh Lord...his hair is something else right now! It's getting sooo long on the sides but it's almost completely gone in the back. He desperately needs a hair cut to even up the hair around his ears so we'll probably do that soon. I'm hoping once he is sitting up consistently that it will grow back in. 

Eyes: Still bright blue!

Clothes: 6-9 months in shirts and 3-6 in pants/shorts

Diapers: Size 2

Sleeping: We put Bennett down around 7:30pm and he usually wakes up around 7:00am. I am very appreciative of how good of a sleeper he is! Even when we go on vacation he still sleeps pretty good!! He is getting better about naps too. I'm hoping once I'm home with him for the summer that I can get him on a good, consistent, nap schedule ; )

Likes: Going on walks, taking baths, sleeping in his crib, his paci & lovie, and singing songs

Dislikes: Poopy diapers, being hot, being tired, and being hungry

Eating: Bennett eats five 7 oz bottles a day. 7:00am, 10:30am, 1:30pm, 4:30pm, and 7:00pm. He eats a jar of baby food at 8:30am. I am going to start giving him more baby food this summer once I am home with him.

Milestones: Bennett is rolling over from front to back and back to front like crazy! He loves rolling around everywhere. He can also sit up unassisted for about 15-20 seconds. He loves trying to do it and laughs when he falls over. 

Baby items we can't live without: We have used our stroller (Britax B-Agile) a TON this month. Bennett is getting big enough to sit in the big part and not the infant carrier and loves it! We are still loving the Mama Roo but the real winner this month has been our Fisher Price Jumperoo (similar one HERE). I forgot we even had this until I saw it in the box in the back of Bennett's closet. I'm so glad I realized we had it because he loves it!
