Oliver is growing up so fast! Sometimes I look at him and stare in wonder at how much he has changed in just a few short months. Every once in a while, he will give me this look, and I swear he looks more like a little boy than a baby! It's so exciting to watch him learn and grow and see his personality develop, but I'm not about to give up the snuggles and kisses and gurgles just yet! So because I never got around to posting about 4 month old Ollie, I am combining 4 month old pictures and facts with 5 months. This is little guy seriously just makes my heart melt 24/7.
Above are some pics of our little man at 4 months. Oliver handled his 4 month appointment and shots SO much better than his 2 month appointment. This was a big deal for mommy! He is tall and skinny and most importantly healthy.
And below is Oliver at 5 months. (Lots of 5 month pictures to come in other posts about our adventures this month!)
And here are some facts about Oliver in the 4/5 month old stage:
-wears 3-6 month clothes
-size 1-2 diapers
-doesn't get a lot of tummy time because he is constantly rolling over to his back
-can roll from back to front and front to back now
-moves around in his sleep A LOT
-loves to grab faces
-has tested the flavors of gelato, pesto, curry, beef stew, pastry cream, butternut squash, and orange juice. He really isn't eating yet, but he is fascinated by what we eat and is getting really grabby, so we started to dip his pacifier (or our fingers) in different items for his tasting pleasure. So far, so good. We tried tiny bits on the spoon, but he just played with it.
-tries to suck on empty water bottles
-is teething. He chews and drools like a boss and has had some pretty fussy last couple of days.
-sleeps from 9pm to 8:30am but has regressed to getting up 2 times a night
-is napping better during the day.
-always wants to be standing up and bouncing
-gets distracted while eating ALL THE TIME
-quick to smile when you make a silly face at him
-is starting to get a little ticklish
-can be instantly cheered up by taking a bath or shower
-tries to hold his own bottle and put his pacifier in himself
-sits up unassisted for a few seconds at a time
-talks to his toys
-travels great in cars and planes
-and laughs and giggles a lot at night before bedtime
I feel pretty lucky to get to spend my days with this little guy. There is no where else I would rather be than home with him!
