Isaiah is 5 Months Old!
...And I feel like I have a big kid on my hands. Isaiah is just so full of personality and love - it's incredible watching him grow day by day, minute by minute. Here's what he's up to:
He's really starting to notice how he can move his fingers individually and he watches intently as he wiggles them. He loves his toes and when he's sitting he bends over to eat them and puts his legs over his head when I'm changing him to play with them. He's also wiggling around more when getting changed - rolling, kicking, arching his back, trying to sit up. It's pretty funny!
Rolling over back to belly is really easy for him now. When I leave the room, just for a second, and come back, he's on his belly. He's very strong and has good grip on anything grabs (goodbye dangly earrings and necklaces!). He's laughing a lot more now and is really becoming ticklish on his legs and armpits.
He is still sleeping through the night! He usually goes to bed between 8 and 9 and then wakes up between 6-7. When we moved he did wake up around 2 or 3 for a week straight but went back to sleep as soon as me or Darren picked him up. I think he just wanted to make sure we're still there. He's settled in nicely since the move. At first, all the noise and people were overwhelming. One night he slept 5-7 because he was so tired! But he's quickly getting used to it and it's fun to watch him interact with his cousins and all the other people that love him.
He's still strictly nursing and usually eats 7 times each day. He doesn't nap much, usually about three cat naps and he's good to go. A lot of times when he's fussy it's because he needs to reboot with a cat nap or just be left alone in his crib and mobile (it's his quiet time).
Isaiah is really into Grady now and loves to pet him/grab his hair. He smiles when he sees him and giggles when Grady licks his hands. He loves looking out the window with Grady - it must be all the pretty green trees. He loves his stroller now too (not that he ever hated it) and often ooooh's and aaaah's as we cruise around.
Loves to bounce, bounce, bounce!
Enjoying some Washington sunshine!
Happy 4th of July!

He still loves singing, bouncing, nursing, and cuddling with his mom and dad the most. He melts my heart every day and I'm so thankful to have him in our life!
