You are now able to roll over in both directions, hold your head up while sitting, push yourself up onto your forearms, and bare your weight on your feet while being held in the standing position.
You are able to follow people and objects much better with your eyes. You turn your head in the direction of a person when they call your by name. You can manipulate a toys with both hands while playing with it. But your all time favorite play thing is your hands and thumbs. You are starting to reach for and explore desired toys.
You are starting to tolerate being apart from Mama for longer periods of time. And can play alone for short periods of time.
Your favorite time of the day is bathtime. While getting you undressed for your bath you always laugh and smile with anticipation of what is to come. Following your bath, playing Peek-A-Boo with the bath towel is one of your favorite games.
You are a good eater. You are now taking 6-8oz of breastmilk every 4-5 hours. I have tried feeding you some solids. You did not care anything for sweet potatoes. But LOVED the squash. Or maybe this liking was because Timmy was sharing him meal with you.
You are a very good baby. You seldom cry, only when you have a need that you want taken care of right away. These past 5 months have flown by. I can hardly wait to see what the future holds for us together.
