Everett 5 Months

Everett is growing like a weed! Here are his updates for this month:

  • He is really great at holding up his head, and propping himself up on his elbows. He still enjoys laying on his back a lot more than on his tummy, but when he's on his tummy, he is exploring the world!
  • He can scoot pretty well on his tummy, and he can scoot around in a full 360!
  • Everett is a pro-bottle holder now (which mom and dad LOVE)
  • He loves to snuggle and cuddle with mom and dad. He loves to rest his head on our shoulders.
  • He is quite the smiler/laugher. He loves to smile and mom and dad and laugh at his silly toys.
  • Everertt is a TALKER! He is starting to use more consonant sounds and gurgle sounds in his speech.
  • We've started him on some solid foods! He loves his rice cereal and fruit juice. This weekend, I also gave a pickle and lemon to suck on and he loved them!!! Especially the pickle!
  • Everett will sometimes sleep all the way through the night, which is awesome! And in the morning when he wakes up, he talks, coos, and eats his toes. We love mornings!
  • Everett has gotten flexible enough to eat his little toes. It's cute watching him!
  • He is starting to bite down pretty hard. We think he might cut some teeth in the near future.
  • He's really started to grab at his toys. He'll reach and roll to try to grab his toys! 
  • He loves to go upside down, fly, and be swung around during play time! He loves to rough house!
  • Everett loves to practice standing up as well! He enjoys being able to feel his legs going up and down.
  • He still really loves to stare at lights...which is hilarious. Sometimes it's the only thing that will calm him down! 
  • Everett also enjoys talking naps with mom in her room with her blackout curtains. 
We love our sweet Everett. Watching him grow is so much fun! He's got quite the personality and we love it!
