Holy moly my baby is 5 months old!!!

I'm a little late with this post. For some reason the month I was so looking forward to, #4, when he was supposed to change so much, just flew by! The weird part is all the things I was looking forward to didn't really happen.

What we were up to this month:

-We surprised Grandma for her birthday! I tried so hard to find the video and then all you can do is share it on facebook. Her reaction to seeing him sitting in the bumbo was so funny!

-We hung stuff on the walls in the nursery.

-We went to 2 weddings. The picture with the horse is at a wedding. Also Chase's first time around a horse. We confirmed that Chase does not like loud noises. We also found out if he is overtired even the car can't put him to sleep.

-Chase got to see his Aunt Nickole for the 2nd time in his life.

-Chase got to watch Daddy play softball for the first time.

Chase started taking longer naps this month. Seems like whenever I have something planned he'll nap 2 or 2.5 hours. He's still waking up twice at night. He's rolled a couple times from belly to back but the way he does it he ends up bonking his head kind of hard. He needs to work on getting his head closer to the ground and turning it and letting his legs follow. He reaches for EVERYTHING now. He tries to type on the computer or play with your phone if they are in front of him. He also tries to put EVERYTHING in his mouth. He discovered how to move his fingers this month and started grabbing our faces and doing what we call "the claw".


  1. He's so cute! I can't believe it's been 5 months!

    My friend said her son started sleeping longer at naptime around 5 months. I look forward to that!

  2. Oh my goodness....can't believe he's almost half way to a year already.

  3. He is just too sweet! I can't believe how big he's getting!
