Grow Baby Grow - 5 Months

Wow. Looking at these pictures really puts it into perspective how BIG Trent is getting! These past 5 months have been the best (and hardest) of my life. But no matter the challenges, I am SO thankful to God every day for the joy of my son. My life has forever been changed in the best possible way.

Things Trent is doing these days:
  • He can roll over from back-to-front but doesn't very often, since he doesn't really like being on his tummy still (although that's getting better).
  • He can laugh (big belly laughs) and squeal (ear piercingly so). He is talking more every day. I just wish I knew what he was saying!
  • He loves his Johnny Jumper and Jumperoo. He's really getting into toys and likes to reach for things and put them in his mouth.
  • He got his first tooth!!! (still no photographic evidence) He drools constantly because of teething and has a sad, nasty rash on his cheek because of all the drool.
  • He reaches for people (like his mama - LOVE THAT ONE!).
  • He can sit unassisted for about 5 seconds before falling over.
  • He still absolutely loves standing up the most.
  • We haven't started any food yet but probably will in the next few weeks.
  • He's getting more predictable with his naps and feedings. He's still waking up 1-2 times a night. We could probably work on cutting that out, but I can't emotionally handle nighttime crying. I decided we will try to ween those night feedings at 6 months. (Bought myself some time to prepare - ha!)
