Alden turned 5 months in November and if you recall from this post, we had a lot of things that happened that month. Alden could finally roll from front to back and back to front! He also started to reach for things around him and he loved playing peek-a-boo. His hair also started getting longer and it was curling up on the ends as you can see from the pictures. Not to forget, his cheeks were also getting so much rounder as he was packing on more chunk. During this time, we also noticed that he can respond to his name which resulted in a lot more smiles and giggling around him.
He was still breastfeeding at this age and he drank about 5 oz. per bottle and goes through 3 bottles while I am at work during the day. I pumped twice at work; once in the morning and once again in the late afternoon. Alden is very lucky that I produced at least 20 -25 oz of milk in a day! As far as sleep, we were still co-sleeping.
Some highlights in November:
- Celebrated daddy’s birthday
- GGMa and GGPa Uhnavy came to visit
Aw look at my chunkster! He was so little!
