Asher turns 5 months old…already!
Oh, how time flies. Asher is now a happy baby. He has grown out of that fussy period completely now and is finally developing a routine. He goes down around 8:30 at night. When he wakes for the day varies. A couple times a week he gives me a 3 am wake-up call, which I have grown to not be surprised by. He has finally started to take 2 naps a day, the morning one at 9-9:30 and one in the afternoon. We have stopped the Zantac, but the nondairy diet continues. He will tell me when I have had the wrong thing to eat by making a big mess. So, I try to be a good girl. He is nursing about every 4 hours, sometimes more often depending upon his nap schedule for the day.
Asher now can sit momentarily without support, cries when he can not see Mommy, holds his arms up when he wants to be held (which is most of the time), likes to play with his hands (and eat them), jibber jabbers a lot, has the cutest little laugh, & has yet to actually swallow any baby cereal. He is now done with the bouncy chair and the Bumbo seat, having found how to escape them! His cries are rarer now, limited to when he goes down for a nap, when I leave the room, & whenever Addison cries.
I can not believe he is 5 months old! It is so sad how quickly the time is going by.
