IJG is 5 months old!


This month IJG learned to roll from back to tummy. Now he can roll both ways and is constantly rolling when on the floor, or in his crib, or during diaper changes...lots of fun! Once he learned to roll the other way, he pretty much stopped waking and rolling over all through the night, but now he wakes between 4 and 6 am...several times. I've tried putting him to bed later but it doesn't seem to help and he usually conks out around 7 pm. He has also decreased the length of his naps and will sleep for about 40 minutes in the morning and about an hour in the afternoon. Naps and bedtime are a bit of a battle since the rolling started. Unless he is totally out of it when we put him down, we have to pat him to sleep or he will roll around and talk/yell instead of sleeping. We often have to do this when he wakes during naps and throughout the morning to get him back to sleep. IJG has also found his feet this month and loves to hold them during diaper changes. He is working on sitting, but still easily topples over. IJG is breastfeeding 6 times a day and can assist with feeding himself if fed from a bottle. IJG got sick a few weeks ago with fever and phlegm. He also got me sick. This was the 2nd time he has been sick, the first was at 2 months. This time was definitely worse and it was clear he was not feeling well. He is still working on getting his first 2 teeth in. IJG likes his baths (we've introduced toys), diaper changes, playing with his toys, when we talk/sing to him, and when we tickle his tummy. He smiles and giggles all the time, especially if we laugh.
