Graham Robert: 5 months

Our sweet little Graham's personality is coming out so much more this past month. He is a quiet watchful baby, but wants to be part of the action. He loves to snuggle so much more than Hilton ever did which we love. He knows what he wants and has figured out to get our attention he has to be louder than Hilton. He loves to people watch already, and is highly entranced by male voices and grandpa type faces. We had him evaluated this past month for plagiocephaly (flat head) because many people have noticed and pointed out the definite flat spot on the back right side of his head. Thank goodness the doctor said it's very mild and should resolve on it's own without a helmet. We love this sweet little addition to our family.

  • Weighs 18 lbs!
  • Wearing size 9 month onesies and size 9-12 month pants - we can barely keep up
  • Wearing size 3 diapers
  • Went through a sleep regression right after he turned 4 months and now wakes up one time every night never at the same time. We tried crying it out but it didn't work so I'm desperate for sleep advice!
  • Takes about three 1.5 hour naps each day if we're lucky since napping is still a fight
  • Still eats about 4-4.5 oz. every 2 hours
  • We have tried pureed bananas, peaches, sweet potatoes, and green beans and he hates all of them
  • Acts like he is teething but I don't see anything coming out quite yet
  • Definitely going to be a blonde although we think he's looking pretty strawberry blond, almost red!
  • Loves his Baby Einstein jumper toy now that his feet can touch and is happy playing in it as long as you are in the room
  • Always wants to be carried facing outwards if he's being held
  • Has the biggest little grins and smiles for me when I coo at him and tell him I love him
  • Getting better at sitting although he's still inclined to topple forward
  • Still hasn't rolled over but it getting much better with tummy time and doesn't suck on his hands quite as much
  • Loves watching his big brother Hilton play toys in the front room, always checks in the backseat of the car to see if Hilton is there too
