Watch Me As I Grow: 5 Months

Everett is 5 months old:

  • He can now fit his entire foot in his mouth and loves grabbing onto his toes
  • Started eating rice cereal, had his first bite on Thanksgiving! {I thought that was appropriate}
  • Fights us going down for a nap. I think he realizes there are better things to do than sleep {which is what his dad always says}
  • Went to see a specialist about his noisy breathing and the result: acid reflux
  • Can sit up, almost by himself
  • Starting to stand, with help of course!
  • Can hold his bottle by himself
  • Loves singing and being sung to
  • Starting to say “Mama” {I’ve heard it a few times now and its usually when he’s starting to get upset and wants me, too}
  • Loves watching football, Pup Patrol and Mickey’s Clubhouse
  • Holds his head up while doing tummy time
  • Grabs our faces when he’s being fed
  • Started playing peek-a-boo with us
  • Gearing up for crawling



Here’s a look over the past month:

How are we doing? Pretty great, we are just loving this little guy. He is so much fun, just loves to laugh and play… Nick and I are really enjoying him. Our families have been out here a lot this month, which has been nice to have the extra help. I’m LOVING my job, every day is a new day and I’m learning so much. It’s great being back in the industry and I have a wonderful team! Thats about it, just working and hanging out with our favorite little dude. 🙂
