Charlie at 5 months

On Valentine's Day, Charlie turned 5 months old. Unfortunately we don't have any pictures from that day, since the bulk of the day was spent in the car on the way from NC back to my parents' house in FL.

When we got back home to KC, I snapped a few photos of Charlie boy to capture his fifth month.

At five months old, Charlie...


smiles and giggles, especially at mama :-) 

has long, blondish hair

sits unsupported for short spurts


has found his voice, and still babbles "g" consonant sounds

still nurses exclusively, every 2-3 hours

rolls over tummy to back and back to tummy- but not very often!


is loooooong and skinny, weighing in right at 15 lbs.

catnaps throughout the day, rarely sleeping longer than an hour

has big, beautiful eyes


usually sleeps 3-4 hours a time at night

is just growing out of his 3-6 month clothes in length


reaches for, grabs, and brings toys to his mouth

likes his worm toy best, second only to his hands

is unbelievably content- except for some evenings, when it's mama or nothin'


sucks or chews on both thumbs

is already getting his first tooth, on the bottom!


Sweet Charlie, you were the perfect Valentine this year!
