This month has been so fun! Forrest is killing us with is cuteness and hysterical personality. He really loves to talk, like all of the time. He makes all sorts of funny noises and sometimes he does weird things with this mouth, and we are certain that he is discovering different sounds and feelings.
We started solids, which has been so fun, and funny to say the least. We started with Earth’s Best Organic Oatmeal Cereal, which, once we made it more pasty, than runny, he LOVED! After about 2 weeks of that, we moved to Avocado, which he didn't hate, but certainly didn't love. We kept him on it for a week, then went to squash, which he LOVES. Lunges towards the spoon and whines when we dont feed it to him fast enough. He currently gets his normal bottles and in the morning he gets a vegetable and for dinner he gets his oatmeal.
He’s started to sleep until 8am which is amazing. I no longer need to nap during the day, which increases the amount of work I get done, which of course leads to more “me time”!
Forrest still isn't officially teething, which I am so thankful for, and he LOVES to just sit up and play with his toys. He has mastered rolling from front to back and back to front, as well as scoots and slithers across the floor. I call him a little sundial, because he just goes in circles for a while! He cuddles with a little fox during nap time which is so sweet! He started doing it all on his own, sometimes he will play with it until he falls asleep himself, but he always ends up cuddling it.
Jake enforced a new rule: making Forrest fall asleep on his own. Which means no more rocking him to sleep then placing him in his crib. It worked amazingly and he easily puts himself to sleep. I cant believe I was running up and down the stairs multiple times during naps to give him his pacifier. He was totally fine.
Below are our most coveted 5 month items:
Baby Bullet - I always wanted to make his baby food and my Dad bought this for me for Mother’s Day and I couldn't wait to use it. It’s been amazing. I wasn't able to pre puree and store avocado because it browned to fast. But with the squash, its been amazing! I have about 2 weeks of stored food, all for a whopping $1.89. I don't think I have ever loved an item more.
Mam Brush and Bite Teether - As I stated, Forrest isn't officially teething, but he LOVES the way this feels on his gums and he can hold it easily.
Infantino Shopping Cart Protector - Now that Forrest is sitting up and more interactive with everything going on, it was time to retire the Baby K’tan and use this handy thing we got before Forrest was born. Its adorable. comfy, secure and Forrest loves it. I can also attach his toys to the front so that I dont have to worry about him chucking them across Target.
Bright Starts Vibrating Teether - Another favorite for Forrest’s gums! This vibrates when he bites down on it and he's obsessed.
Joovy Spoon Walker - This walker is simple, sleek and everything I wanted in a walker. The tray on the top is removable so that I can put whatever toys I want on there. No crazy colored, bulky thing! This walker also breaks down flat easily so I can store it wherever. He loves banging his toys on it and being able to jump up and down. His little feet don’t touch the bottom so we put a stiff pillow underneath so he can touch and jump away. I can also roll it around so that he can play while I make dinner or make his food! I truly love how I can easily customize his play time with whatever toys he’s loving at the moment. One of my most favorite purchases after the mamaroo!
