It was an eventful month for Henry. On his 4 month "birthday" it snowed pretty heavily and on his 5 month "birthday" he had an allergic reaction to penicillin. In between those he:
became a master of rolling over, therefore stopped being swaddled 11/25
started scooting on the floor,
tried out the doorway jumper,
started wearing size 4 diapers at night
got strep throat, therefore his first antibiotic, therefore his first allergic reaction
Henry is still fitting into 6-9 month clothes, but mostly on the 9 month side. Since he actually had a doctor appointment the day he turned 5 months old, I know that he weighs 17 pounds 15 ounces.
There's a new routine getting Henry to take a nap. I put him in a fleece sleep sack, snuggle his Simba lovey into his arm, give him a pacifier and pat his back while holding him. Works like a charm. My girls didn't really care for a lovey until they were a little older, but I noticed that Henry was always grabbing for my necklace when trying to fall asleep so I've been handing him the lovey instead and....well...he loves it =) I've also started laying him in the crib on his belly since he will turn himself over anyway and wake up in the process.
Henry has really seemed to figure out the 2 naps thing. He puts together 2 solid naps almost everyday. He's still waking up about twice every night. I'd love for that to get better.
Here is a roll of the pictures from this month:
Our little teddy bear =)
We love this little guy!
