Aiden @5 months

My oh my, hard to believe little man is already *5 months* old! Ahh!! Seriously, seems like yesterday I was preggers and just day dreaming about my little nugget! 🙂

{Me-38 Weeks pregnant & Baby Aiden a week old!}

A LOT has changed lately with my little sweetheart. He is really growing so fast and revealing a little bit of his personality every single day.

Aiden LOVES going on walks in our stroller, we’ve gone a few times just before bedtime and he loves it. {Nature is definitely calming for the soul.}

He has also realized how cool it is to actually hold himself up more while on tummy time, thanks to seeing others master this trick at Baby and Me class.

He’s just recently started to babble and baby talk. He also moves his mouth as if talking but says nothing.

Prior to talking we started off by making noises with our mouth…noises such as spitting and blowing raspberries. It’s the funniest thing, he does it and just laughs at himself. {Mommy even caught him on camera}

Aiden has mastered pulling out his paci but has yet to master putting it back in. {He continues to STILL *LOVE* the paci….someone takes after daddy in deed!}

He LOVES books, and always wants to turn the pages. He particularly loves flip up and pop up books. {*Hint hint* GG & Popo}

His favorite toy is still his stuffed Monkey.

He loves to kick kick kick, especially when on his play mat.

He loves bath time still and loves to splash around with his legs.

Speaking of legs, he’s discovered how to use his feet to bring dangling toys closer to him to grab.

Socks don’t stand a chance anymore, we’ve mastered tugging and pulling at them at all times.

He also sits up *assistedly*, not by himself yet. Though he does like the bumbo chair! 🙂

He’s finally started to take notice of Lexie and Lucas and will stare them down when they are on the move. {He’s probably saying “Enjoy your space will you can, because I’ll be invading it soon! ;-P hehe}

He smiles and laughs ALL THE TIME, especially when someone is talking to him {particularly mommy!}.

He’s begun to get distracted by mommy getting up or leaving the room. He can be perfectly content by himself playing and if mom gets up and doesn’t acknowledge him he cries in an effort to get picked up.

He knows his name and responds to it well. He usually hears it, turns and then smiles. ❤

Though he shouldn’t, he loves the Olympics, all that action catches his attention more often than not.

He is also all about his exersaucer/jumperoo now, before it was tolerable and but now he greatly enjoys it and has mastered all parts of it.

Aiden is also all about his hands, he reaches for EVERYTHING now, especially toys, cups and bowls. He also likes to grab mommy’s face while nursing, forcefully stick his fingers in my mouth, pinch me, and then sweetly rub my face and chest afterwards.

He also likes to talk while nursing, with his mouth full he talks away making funny little sounds.

He has also starting teething, or some stage of it, even though no teeth have made their appearance, the signs tells us that some may be on the there way sooner than later.

He concentrates a lot when reaching for things. It’s so cute to seem him thinking and getting those wheels turning!

Aiden is super active but has yet to roll from his back to his tummy. He’s gotten close several times but is still working at it.

He has one strong grasp and his new thing is grabbing on to the back of mommy’s hair forcefully without letting go.  :-/

Lately we’ve been fighting our sleep and it’s really the only time Mr. Sunshine is a complete grouch. He doesn’t want to be put down when he falls asleep, with mostly happens in mommy’s arms. The minute he is placed down he wakes up eagerly and cries if we try to soothe him while he’s laying down. He WANTS to be in my arms, or in the moby wrap close to mommy. Someone is definitely a snuggle bunny! 🙂

{handsome baby! (even with a shirt full of drool! 😉 lol) }

{breaking out of the swaddle}

{new tricks!}

{Smiles {& spit) galore!}

5 months already, and enjoying every bit of it! 🙂

❤ Alicia
