Grandma brought you over some Batman shades! You’re getting stinger by the day, and you’re starting to rock on your hands and knees. You can sit on your own for extended periods of time and catch yourself when you start to wobble.
- pull yourself into standing
- sit supported with your arms
- you say mama and dada, only kind of on dada
- more verbal and starting to babble audibly
- instantly open your mouth for food
- know what certain images are
- more flirting, with baby girls and grown women alike
You’ve officially outgrown showering with dad, mainly because dad isn’t strong enough to control you anymore. You’ve really taken to bath time and love the tub (splashing, of course). We start your first “My Gym” baby class this weekend (AKA Toddler Crossfit) ; I’m positive that you’re going to be running by the end of the month. We’ve started you on solids. You started with stage 1 and now you’re on stage 2. Mangos are your favorite! Your allergies are still bad, and you still have a cough and congestion. The doctor said that it’s not in your lungs, so we don’t have to worry about breathing treatments anymore.
Dad picked you up from school today and ran some errands with you so I could relax. I’ve not been feeling well 😦 so dad’s helping me a little more than usual.
Your’e almost crawling! And you’re mostly sitting by yourself. You figured out how to sit in the shopping cart just fine. It’s a whole new world at the store now that you can see everything!
You can’t get enough of this toy. On the other hand, dad hates it because it went off in the middle of the night while we were all sleeping. It scared him really badly because he thought someone was in the house. Now, we make sure it’s properly ‘off’ before we go to bed.
We’ve started feeding you Stage 2 foods, because you’re almost 6 months old and almost sitting by yourself.
