Liam turned 5 months old on January 18th. As usual, I'm behind with my posts, so this will be posting just before he turns 6 months old!
Happy 5 months, my sweet boy! You are my amazing blessing. I learned so much from you in your 5 short months in my life. Your sweet face is the first thing I see every morning when I wake up and your smile melts my heart. Your beautiful spirit and incredible determination are evident in every single thing you do. I am honored to be your mom and I am so proud to call you my son. I love you with all my heart, my beautiful boy!
MILESTONES: Pushing up on your arms, beginning to stand while holding onto our hands, working on a supported sit, and the ability to hold your head up for longer periods of time.
TOOTH COUNT: None, but the tooth buds are there. You definitely have symptoms of teething!
COMFORTS: Nursing and cuddling.
FIRSTS: Between 4-5 months, you celebrated your first Christmas, and rang in your first New Year. Unfortunately, you also had your first visit to Urgent Care. On the day you turned 5 months, you had your first solid feeding!
EATING: You are mainly breastfed, and you are starting to give up your supplemental bottle. You started solids on the day you turned 5 months old.
SLEEPING: You were sleeping really well, then got sick with pneumonia, so that messed up your sleep schedule. You still take several long naps throughout the day.

LIKES: Eating, snuggling, being swaddled in a warm blanket, taking a bath, playing with toys while propped up in your boppy, and interacting with loved ones.
DISLIKES: Being hungry or cold, and getting strapped into your carseat.
FAVORITE TOYS: OBalls, OBall Car, and Soothe & Glow Seahorse.
NICKNAMES: Miam (thanks to your sister, Lily), Little Dude, and Buddy.
HEALTH: You finally had your first illness. You threw up while on your back, which led to you aspirating, which led to pneumonia.
EARLY INTERVENTION: Miss Pam comes to our house once a week, and has been working with you to get you to gain weight consistently, and build the strength in your neck muscles, arms, and torso.
STATS: 9 lbs 6 oz and 25 inches.
WEARING: Newborn Diapers, some Newborn clothing, 0-3 month clothing, and size 0 shoes.
PERSONALITY: You are so sweet, cuddly, determined, and happy. You are as social butterfly and love to interact with your family and friends!
