February 7th, my sweet boy turned 5 months. How?! I say it every month, but I just can't believe how quickly this has gone by! Søren is a joy to be around. He's sweet, calm, friendly and adorable. You can see him watching and learning and observing and soaking in everything he sees! He rolls a lot and scoots around a little, but no crawling or anything like that yet. We tried giving him oatmeal flakes several times, and he haaaaated them, so we didn't push it. He loves Yo Gabba Gabba, and smiles at Muno (the big red cyclops) when he speaks. This month he got his first cold, which was sooo sad! There were lots of boogies. He coughed and sneezed a lot, but for the most part was in good spirits and all smiles! Here are some stats from his 4 month checkup, which was just 11 days before his 5 month birthday, and a letter from me:
Weight: 17lbs 13oz (90th percentile)
Height: 25.75 inches (80th percentile)
Head: 17.25 inches (90th percentile)
You are so big! You've evened out over the past few months. I'm so proud of you. You have conquered rolling over, so as much as we try to stop you, you keep sleeping on your tummy! I'm letting you nap in my arms still, because I know this won't last long. It's always my favorite part of every day. We got some really giant belly chuckles out of you this month! It was the best sound, and I even got it on video!!! Be still, my heart. You love, love your cousins, and boy do they love you. I'm constantly rolling over little cousin feet with the stroller because they all crowd around to hold your hand and see your smile. Your cousin Erin loves to feed you and hold your hand, your cousin Steel always smiles so sweetly at you and makes sure to say hello and goodbye. Cousin Liam has been trying to teach you how to high-five for months already! Also, I took you to the zoo for the first time, and you were so good! You slept for a while, and when you woke up you were only really interested in our friends that were there and the penguins. I got you out of the stroller and put you on eye level with one of the penguins, and he came right up to the glass. You were so busy looking at the others swimming in the water you almost didn't notice the sweet little guy not 12 inches away from you! It was super cute. I only got a few iPhone pictures, but here is one :
I can't wait for all the other adventures we'll have together, my little mister! You are so loved, never forget that.
