Ryan is 5 months! Woo Hoo! I have heard from many people that many really fun wonderful things will start happening around 5 months. I can honestly say that this past month has been much better than months 0-4. Ryan has a HUGE personality. When he is happy, he is very happy... and when he is not happy, things are pretty ugly. Is it normal for 5 month olds to be throwing temper tantrums already?? Its amazing that some days I feel like he is just so happy and content but the very next day I am overwhelmed by a very fussy baby. So yes, things are much better but I am still looking forward to even happier days.
This month we continued to be very busy. For mommy's sanity, we get out of the house a lot. We had a 4th of July party and a World Cup party, we have gone on walks with Kelli and Noah, we spent the weekend in Sea Bright with Jackie, Julian, and Eloise, we also spent the weekend at Pelican Island with the family, we had Cyndi's graduation party, and we visited with Blake and her new baby sister Brooklynn. It was really a fun month!
Some of the key happenings of this month are:
* You are giggling much more. You still have not had your first belly laugh, but you are getting close.
*You are still not sleeping consistently. Some nights you can sleep from 7pm-6am (these nights are AMAZING) but many nights you still wake up several times.
*You are rolling all over the place, which is partially why you are having trouble sleeping.
*You can sleep on your tummy.
Here is to what I hope is an even better month! I love my little man.
