Bentley is 5 Months!

He may still be a tiny peanut, but this kid is already 5 months old. This month he:

  • Moves! He can roll both ways like a pro and wiggle-worm himself in any direction he wants to go. It's hilarious, but it worries me a bit that he's going to be crawling before I know it, and that's when things get scary!
  • Talks. He is making more and more sounds and trying to copy us more. One day this month, I was being an awesome mom and bribed Fynn with a bagel from DD if she was good while my car was inspected. As we left, Fynn asked if she had been a good girl, and Bentley said "ah-no". Fynn and I just about died laughing at that one. Obviously he wasn't really saying no, but it was just the best timing. 
  • Found his toes. He loves to grab them and hold them and even just stare at him.
  • Maybe knows his name- He turns and responds to his name, so we're thinking that he somehow knows it means him.
  • Knows about his fingers. He watches them very intently as he moves them and has figured out how to grab toys and his sister's hair. He's also figured out how to get the things he has grabbed into his mouth
  • Only wakes up once a night (usually) to nurse and go right back to sleep.
  • Loves TV and any other type of screen. When Fynn was this age it was so easy to keep her away from TV... this time not so much. If the TV is on, he will roll and scoot into a position where he can see. Fynn had the iPad across the room from him the other day and within 2 minutes he had scooted over to see what she was doing.

  • Loves his Crinkle Bear... which is actually a monkey. What evs. Drew and I both thought it was a bear until their babysitter said otherwise one morning. He loves this thing and it goes in the car with us anytime we go. All you hear while driving is a steady *crinkle,crinkle,crinkle* 
  • Wearing a combination of 3-6 month and 6 month clothing. 3-6 month stuff is getting tight, but the 6 month stuff is still big. Waist-wise he fits into 3 month pants, and he's been wearing some of those on cooler days since they're not really long enough, but it works
  • He weighs about 13 pounds now. On Tuesday he weighed in at 12 lbs 14 ounces.
