Logan (5 months)

Another month has flown by. Isn't that how it always goes? Logan Kent is 5 months old, and in fact, is inching really close to 6 months. I have gotten into the habit of documenting things right before he turns another month older, and its turned out to be working ok. As it is right now, there is so much excitement as he moves out of his 5th month!

This big wide open grin is what you seen from Logan most of the time. So content, happy, and easy to take care of. If he's included where the action is, then he is good to go.
He can always be easily amused by his big sis, and she becomes more inclusive of him (taking him toys, stopping to talk to him, helping feed him) as the time passes. Makenah can always make him smile! She keeps a close eye on him too, and will even mother him some. For example, he was getting little fussy in Target the other day, and she sweetly turned around and said, "Logie, people are trying to shop..." HaHa!
Logan tried solids for the first time this month, and much prefers fruits or mild tasting vegetables over rice cereal. (The peas were terrible...ha!) Makenah pulls up a chair right with us, and does some coaching along the way. "Eat it Logie!" "Don't spit it out Logie!" She is really intrigued by his baby food, and insists on taking a tiny finger sample of each. He is starting to get the hang of it, but I would say at this point, more food may still be coming out than staying in!
Everything goes straight to his mouth right now too! In addition to toys, he tries jewelry, my hair, peoples fingers, his feet, and clothing as well. Slobbery, drooly boy.
Logan is such a strong boy!! He's up on all 4s now, rocking, rolling and pushing. He's going to crawl off in no time! We are pretty sure this morning he went forward for the first time. He's quite a bit ahead of where Makenah was, but he's got her to try and keep up with, right!
But, his other favorite way to lay is the "skydiver." He lays like this and wiggles his legs really fast, too. He still makes all the cutest baby sounds--cooing, growling, hootin' and hollerin', and will have a whole conversation with you. Love it.
Not too much change in his nighttime sleeping pattern or his overall eating. He still nurses like a champ! His naps have seemed to become pretty predictable, and on most days his afternoon naps does some overlapping with Makenah's! (Cue the chorus of thankfulness!) He takes a short nap mid morning, a long afternoon nap, and will occasionally throw in a supper time cat-nap, otherwise, just waits until bed around 8.
At his 4 month dr. appt., which was closer to 5 months, he weighed 17 lbs. 5 oz., which was the 75%ile. He also got 3 shots that shut him down for a good 24 hrs. Poor baby.
Other things about Logan from the past month...
~Attended  his first Storytime at the library
~Traveled to CO with us again
~ Is getting WAY heavy in his baby carrier. His weight will soon outweigh the convienence of that thing
~First outdoor concert
~Is getting strong on his feet, bearing his weight
~Has continued to stay with us during church, but will be visiting the nursery for the first time soon!
~Has a cute head of hair coming in so sweetly. A pretty cute crew cut of new growth and some long stragglers from the first batch!
~Still likes his swing, especially for some shut-eye
~ Can bounce up a storm in his exersaucer/bouncer

Logan, we are completely in love with you!!
You are the sweetest, sweetest thing!!
Love you baby boy!
