5 Months Old!

5 months! Definitely not a little baby anymore. He still pretty much refuses to go to sleep or stay asleep so my life kind of revolves around reading about sleep and worrying about sleep. But he is doing lots of others things, since he has so much awake time to do them in! Forrest started eating solid foods this month and he's already very good and stuffing things in his mouth so he took to it right away. He started rolling over, sort of. He does it occasionally, and I'm pretty sure only by accident. This is most likely because he doesn't get much chance to practice since he's being held 90% of the day. He has also really started noticing Lotus, for better or worse. It's entertaining for him, but not so much for her since all he can do so far is try to grab her fur. But Lotus is of course reaping the benefits of the aforementioned start of solid foods, so she's still coming out ahead.

Cora really doesn't roll over on purpose very much, either. I think they have to connect it with benefitting themselves in some way. Her cousin Emily, who is 6 weeks older than Cora, seems to roll over to entertain herself--but she's a third child and sometimes DOES have to entertain herself, whereas Cora doesn't really have to!

Happy five month birthday, Forrest!
