five months old

You’re five months old! Almost half of a year has passed since you were born. Crazy, right? Crazy.

This month saw the end of the boobs, and it kills me. You don’t really seem to care. Your little eyes have been opened to the big wide world of baby food, and you’re not looking back. I still feel tinges of mommy-guilt every time I fix you a bottle, and it just plain sucks! It probably sounds silly to most people, but I feel like I’m mourning the loss of a special bond with you that I will never get back. I guess four months of boobs is better than none at all, and you’re happy and healthy and that’s all that matters. 
We’ve made it to six month clothes! You were only 13 pounds at your last appointment, but I have a feeling you’re pushing sixteen or so by now. Your appetite is practically insatiable, and you’re finally sleeping through the night (woop woop!), which means my boy is doing some serious growing! Part of me is sad to pack away all of your too-small clothes, but it’s exciting to look forward to all that the coming months will bring.

It’s official– you’re sleeping in your own bed! Daddy usually puts you down around 9 or 10, and you sleep until about 4– sometimes even 6:30! Now don’t get me wrong, I’m still a sucker for some momma-baby snuggle time, but it’s nice to get a good night’s sleep once in a while, too.

We packed up the swing and replaced it with a jumperoo this month! You don’t totally appreciate it yet (mostly because you haven’t figured out how to jump in it), but I have a feeling it will be a new favorite in the coming weeks.

The only thing you really care about right now is chewing– ON EVERYTHING. A couple of wittle teeth are trying to break through on the bottom, which means anything you can get your hands on goes straight to your mouth– momma’s hair, blankies, toys, your own fists… And apparently teething = fever = diaper rash, so it’s been a really good time in the Kozlowski house. Not.

This month brought with it your first halloween! You went with Daddy to the Mummer’s Day Parade, and we bundled you up in a super cute monster hat! You were too small for most of the halloween costumes we found, and this momma isn’t crafty enough to make one soooo the hat will have to do.

You are a ROLY POLY and dyyyying to sit up! I have a feeling it won’t be long! It’s so exciting, watching you learn new things each day, coming into your own. I’m almost afraid to blink! I can’t believe it’s been five beautiful months already. Love you, sweet boy ❤
