jeremiah is taking a nap so i’m going to see if i can get a real post in here!
i can’t believe that he will be five months old on friday! my little tiny baby, nearly half a year old. sigh.
he is changing and growing so much every day, it’s very hard to keep up with him! i feel that if i don’t spend a minute of his awake time with him, i will miss everything!
i was looking at the miracle of his hands last night. how he puts his hand out to touch my hair, pat my chest, or caress my face is SO precious. his little chubby, dimpled hands are impossibly adorable.
yesterday, he started waving back at me. it’s hard to think it’s just a coincidence, since he did it three times in a row. this morning, he did it twice.
he is of course a pro at rolling from his tummy to his back. if you just lie him on his belly, flat, he will put his arms up to hold his head up. he needs very little support to sit up, and litle help to hold himself up in a sitting position. he LOVES standing up with us, and will pull himself to standing when we hold his hands.
kicking! boy does this boy love to kick! his favorite kicking is in the tub, but he likes to kick no matter where he is!
his little feet are his newest infatuation. he loves to hold both his feet in his hands, and bring them to his mouth. while he can’t get both in his mouth at the same time, he sure tries! lol! even when he’s eating cereal, he will want to follow up each bite with a nibble on a toe here and there.
he is getting cereal 2-3 times a day, and only 0-2 bottles of formula a day. the rest of his meal, the main part, is still breastmilk. i’m so excited and proud of this! ๐Ÿ™‚ i don’t think we’ll stop nursing any time soon! yay!
he it teething really bad now. he will cry his little eyes out about his poor gums. ๐Ÿ™ he will bite our fingers HARD too to try to sooth himself. it’s so sad! we are using tylenol and baby orajel to help him out when it gets too bad. a cute thing he does that i think is from his teething, is stick out his tounge all the time. it’s so precious!
he’s up now but in a good mood so we’ll see how long i can continue posting! ๐Ÿ˜‰
another thing he likes to do is sing. he makes little noises along to music, just like he’s singing along. it’s SO cute! and he LOVES it when anyone, especially me, sings to him. our new favorite is ‘bushel and a peck’. he especially likes the hug around the neck part. ๐Ÿ˜‰
he is still sleeping in his bouncer, but it’s on the floor now, not in his bed.
well he’s getting a bit lonely, so i’m going to see what he needs!
i just love the lil man so much it’s unbelievable! hugs to you all!

    If you can hold a baby carrot and let him nawsh away at it, it may relieve some of his discomfort… so says my sister, she has 5 munchkins. Yes, they do grow up fast… it’s hard to believe her oldest is 19!

    Hi Jenn,

    Amanda is teething too, she just got #2, and is work
    Hi Jenn,

    Amanda is teething too, she just got #2, and is working on two more. I’ve been lucky though… No teething issues from any of my kids. Wonder if that’s because they get their teeth a little later than most kids??? *shrugs*.. Whatever the reason, I am SO thankful that they don’t go through the pain!!!

    Amanda loves to kick too. She likes to play “Fly Baby”. While lying on the couch, I hold her above me like an airplane, and then she kicks her feet like crazy. It’s very cute!

    Hugs
    Julie
