5 Months Old! (With pics)

Today, the bug is 5 months old.

He is currently sitting behind me playing with one of his favorite toys, a car simulation thingy that sings to him. He's obsessed with the freaking thing. Liam is a pretty happy baby, unless he is stuck lying down or on his tummy. He loves sitting up, and while he can still sit up by himself for like 10 seconds, he falls. Or, he will tripod himself (its quite funny to watch and see) and kind of try to sit like that for awhile.

God forbid the child has to lie down, he goes crazy. He has great abs that allow him to pull himself halfway up, but he can't quite figure out how to get his lower half to cooperate just yet.


Liam now eats cereal twice a day, and two ounces of pear juice. (Per ped)
He is fully formula fed.
He scoots when he wants a toy.
He can roll over from side to side.
When he is angry, he says Mom.
Okay, it's more like "MOMOMOMOMOMOMMMMM"
He can also sit himself up...sometimes...and if he really wants to.

He is approx 27 inches long and 18lbs. I say approx because my measurements are nothing near the drs normally.

Enjoy some pictures from his 5 month photo shoot!!

Please only repost pictures with permission from me, unless you are family.

Thanks! And that is the Life of a Leebug.


Til the next milestone..

Oh the bug...

I don't have much of an update for Liam this week.

He will be five months old next week, and I will update then. But for the most part, Liam is doing great. He is laughing, talking (babytalk), trying to sit up and lighting every moment in our lives!

His milestone this week? He can drip from a sippy cup! We give him applejuice once a day to help him poop. TMI, I know, but I gotta help the poor kid and his toosh!

Until later in the week...

Can you say seereeuhl?

Thats right Liam had cereal today for the first time. And boy was he ready!!! I kind of let him tell me when he was ready, and since hes almost 5 months I just watched for his cues. Which were...moving his tongue around and reaching for everyones food. He can also hold himself up for 8 seconds! Eeeek!

Today he had 2 tablespoons mixed with breastmilk. His first spoonful he didnt know what to do with it, and he kind of got super excited and kicked his little feet all around. But after that first one he even tried to take the spoon from me and help put it in his mouth.

Sigh. My little boy is growing up so much...its heartbreaking. He is also on his last two days of breastmilk and he is handling the switch well. Maybe in two weeks we will start veggies!

Until then...thats the life of a Leebug.
