The Baby Diaries: 5 months

You are 5 months!

That's nearly 6 months! Which is half a year!

I can not believe how fast time flies and that we've had you for such a significant period of time. But at the same time, I can't remember a life without you.

You've learnt to put your face to the side, so you no longer face-plant the carpet when trying to crawl. This makes for a much happier baby!

You can now spin yourself around in circles and are beginning to move backwards. I'm sure it won't be long before you're crawling. We can tell, you're desperate to get moving!

You weigh 11lb 5oz. Still a slow gainer, so much so that we have to take a trip to the doctors on Tuesday to get you checked out. I'm sure all will be fine though. They just need to look at your dad to see that you take after him!

We've managed to forge some semblance of a routine which has given me my evenings back! I'm looking forward to being able to sit and knit, or blog. But I do miss you upstairs and sometimes sit in my room listening to your baby monitor music so I'm still close by. It's quite relaxing actually!

You now sleep in your very own cot, which looks massive in comparison to your tiny frame! But you have settled in there fine, and are quite happy to sleep there so really it's just down to mummy to put you back after your night feed and you'll stay there all night (it doesn't always happen!).

You are getting very good at making happy sounds, and you have worked out that it is a good way of getting our attention and ensuring that we interact with you.

You're now starting to spend time away from me. I leave you with Nana for a few hours at a time so I can get back into a work schedule. I'm never far away but it still feels strange that I'm not looking after you. We just make sure I'm close by at feed time.

Next week we're going to start you on Rusks and Baby Rice. My breastfeeding days are numbered so I'm making the most of them while I can!
