Liam at 5 Months

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!


Dear Liam,

  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!

Love, Mommy


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.


SOUNDS/WORDS: You coo and giggle!

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!



  1. I can't take it, he is just the cutest!

  2. He's so adorable, I love reading his monthly reports! XO

  3. Hi Stefani! Wow, nearly 6 months already? Where did that time go? Liam (I really love that name!) is absolutely precious and these are all sweet pictures of him!! Look at him smiling, and I see a little bit of Lily in him, am I right? Glad to hear things are going great with him (apart from his sickness and trip to hospital). I bet the kids love having a tiny baby in the house again and are spoiling him rotten :)

  4. P.S. Happy 2014!! I am finally getting back into my blogging!!

  5. We love all the Oballs here too! They are probably the best first toys for little ones!

    Happy 5 months (actually 6 months -ssssh)!

  6. Happy 5 months! Happy 6th months! Liam is the snugglest!!

  7. I love watching Liam grow! He is so precious! I wish we lived closer so that we could meet in person, I think he and Cody would have a blast together!!
