Our little guy is 5 months old (as of Thursday)! Every day bring something new with Miles at this adorable stage. It’s so much fun to watch him discover new things every day.

Also, let me tell you – that terrible beast called 4-Month Sleep Regression is real. Last month was rocky between the hours of 1:00 am and 6:00 am around this house, but we all managed to survive and I’m so grateful that night-time sleeping is back to long rhythms again.

Here’s a quick snapshot of Miles at 5 months:

Loves: His toes! Miles spends hours every day looking at and playing with his toes. When I take his socks off and play with his feet, he laughs so hard he practically chokes. He also loves his binky (paci, pacifier, whatever), his stuffed animal friends, rides in Mommy’s front-pack, tickles, and conversations with Daddy.

Tries: To put everything in his mouth. Also, he tries to give big wet sloppy kisses now.

Learning: To listen to and interact with books. Watching him learn to enjoy reading time has been so much fun!  Miles is also learning to sit up – we aren’t quite there and normally spend a nice chunk of the day tipping over into pillows on Mommy’s bed.

Laughs At: The nursery rhyme “This Little Piggy” and “The Itsy Bitsy Spider”.  Seriously. He loses it every time. He also laughs when he sees himself in the mirror. It’s so cute!

Dislikes: Tummy-time is less unpleasant than it used to be, but still not his favorite.

Excited for: Baby’s first Christmas! Miles loves looking at the twinkle lights outside and at our tree. I know he’s too little to really enjoy much, but it’s so fun to see how amazed he is at the pretty lights and colors.

Miles is such a gift and it’s such a joy to watch him grow. Tell me though – what was your baby like at 5 months? Prepare me!
