Another month has passed! Our little darling turns 5 months today. It was indeed the golden age of babyhood as the past one month was full of fun and joy now that he is more interactive and aware of his surroundings (albeit with a little bit of sleeplessness here and there).
At 5 months, Ewan:
~ weighs 7.0kg
~ made his first successful flip on 24 July 2010. The more we clapped and cheered, the more eager he was to show off his new skill
~ reached out his hands for me to carry when I asked, “Mommy pau pau?” on 7 August 2010. My heart stopped and melted instantly
~ made tremendous improvements in his aiming, reaching out and grasping skills.
~ thinks he’s a big boy already and only needs one nap a day, especially on weekends
~ is becoming more vocal; I will never get bored of listening to his baby language!
~ wakes up at 3.30am every now and then to mumble, pull our nose/lips/hair/shirt and roll all over the bed. He thinks we’re his giant toys
~ laughs more
~ observes things and follows their movements more intently
One more month to half a year old, where he will be starting solid!
