I'm Baby Jack and I'm back with a monthly update! I turned 5 months old today and boy is it getting hot around here! Maybe I just feel hot because I've been doing so much new stuff lately. I've started to sit up on my own! Well, sorta. I can sit up for a little bit, but then I get tired and just sort of fall over. Luckily Mommy and Daddy are there to help me back up. Sometimes they let me sit in the front part of the shopping cart instead of my carseat, but I'm always strapped in tight. Let me tell you, the view is so much better from there!
I've also learned that I have a tongue! It's the coolest thing ever! I looove sticking it out all the time. I even have a video of me in the bath and I'm sticking my tongue out at Dad (direct link here, embedded below). Who knew such a cool thing existed?
I also enjoy tummy time a lot more these days now that I can roll over (if I want). I can also lift my head really high and twirl around to look at different toys when I am playing in my activity gym. Maybe I'll be able to crawl soon! Watch out Mom and Dad!
Oh yeah, Mommy tells me I've been sleeping through the night. I guess that is a good thing? I don't even realize because I am sleeping the whole time. I start getting tired (Dad calls it fussy) around 6:30 in the evening so he gives me a bath, and then a bottle and then it's to bed I go until 6:30 in the morning! I still take at least two naps during the day- one in the morning and one around noon. I get really good naps at home, but when I am at daycare there is just so much going on... who has times for naps? I guess I need to listen to my teachers and take a nap because Daddy says I get REALLY tired on the weeknights and he's tempted to put me to bed even earlier than 7:00. Who wants that??
I didn't go to the doctor this month (thank goodness!) so I don't have any measurements, but I'll be back next month with another update when I am finally half of a year old! Daddy did put me in a produce scale at Wal-Mart and he said I currently weigh about 16 pounds. You can see all of my 5 month pictures here.
Well I guess that is enough for now... stay tuned for next month when I'll finally be 1/70th the age of my Daddy!
