With both of my boys I have found that 4-5 months is one of my favorite ages! Just look at this sweetness and you'll see what I mean!
Full of smiles, content to watch his big brother play, and a good sport when the teething pains visit him -we just love our sweet boy!
We have entered the easily distracted, very active phase of nursing! It's a full contact sport.
Nursing is hard work! Sometimes a power nap is in order. This is the difference between my first baby and my second baby. With my first, I would have worried about all the things I had to do during naptime. With my second, I just soak it in!
Has started to "talk" a little! He likes it when his efforts are acknowledged!
We have a jumper that Ben got to try out this month - he likes to just hang out in it, but hasn't really started jumping yet.
One big difference we've noticed compared to when Eli was a baby is that Ben is a big-time chewer! Eli was never really into putting things in his mouth but we think we're in for it with Ben! Already he will be holding onto your finger and then casually start to bring it towards his mouth…
He hasn't really shown any interest in solid food yet so we are holding off for now.
Toes are a favorite!
We got the famous Sofia the Giraffe teething toy for Eli, and he didn't care one bit for it. Ben, however, is a fan!
Ben knows just what to do with junk mail!
A very cranky baby just has to be worn. We didn't figure out until two days later that the fussiness was due to teething! No teeth have made an appearance yet but they sure are giving him a hard time!
This month Ben discovered a new trick - sucking on his bottom lip! It's so cute! It looks like he's very deep in thought when he does it.
