5 months

Our little man is not so little anymore! At his 5 months check the other day we found out that he now weighs 17.3 lbs and is 27 inches long. Our ped says that he's the size of a 7 month old, so i guess that's why we've been pulling out the bigger clothes and packing away the ones that are too small.

The biggest development is that he's now rolling over. Despite the ped telling us that he'd roll from his belly to back first he did the opposite. He starting rolling from his back to his belly and was then kind of stuck there. Which he is none to happy about as he's not a tummy time fan. But today he's rolling back again so that's great. We're some very proud mommies!

He also just started solids. We started with the baby rice, but he really didn't like it, so i started making my own baby food. He seems to like the orange things - sweet potato and carrots are favorites and pears he's not too bothered about. I'm really starting slowly. We offer him some after his milk and if he takes a little that's great, if he's not interested then that's ok too.

Check out how cute he is!

  1. Haha I just made an almost identical post! We started solids this week too, so much fun!
    I haven't tried anything orange yet though, looks a nightmare to get out of clothes.
