5 months

Stats: Weight- 13.2 lbs.

Clothes: Calvin is wearing 3 month clothes and size one diapers. I love seeing him in so many of the outfits that Christian wore! I have pulled out the 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers since we will be transitioning soon.

 Sleep: Sweet boy still fights evening sleep from around 7-11 and wants to be held. We did get him to sleep in the swing a few times then which was amazing! :) He sleeps in the pack and play in our room and still loves to be swaddled. His wake time is usually no more than an hour to an hour and a half.
Typical "schedule":
8:00am wake up
9:30am Nap
12:00pm Nap
3:00pm Nap (sometimes this nap merges with the 12:00 with a feeding in the middle)
5:00 or 6:00 pm Nap
7:00 Bath and get ready for bed then fight sleep for 3+ hours…
Wakes up between 4:00am and 6:00am to eat

Activities: We have been enjoying walks and going to the park. Calvin naps so well in the Ergo which makes us able to get out a bit more often. He still loves the activity mat and tried the bumbo for the first time.  We celebrated Calvin's first Easter this month.

Development: Calvin has made a huge leap in head control the last few weeks. When he is on his tummy, he will lift it about 45 degrees but is more stable when being held. He rolled over this month and usually rolls more easily from his back to stomach. He loves to smile and giggle but doesn't have any big laughs yet. (Maybe he will always be a quiet giggler :) ) He loves blowing raspberries and is very ticklish! This month he also held onto a toy for the first time- a bowling pin handed to him by his brother!
