Atticus - Five Months
Height: I *think* he's about 27" long.
Weight: 16.5 lbs wearing a diaper and clothes on the high-dollar scale at Michael's work
Diapers: Still exclusively in cloth. I still love them. :)
Sleep: Our Healthy Sleep Habits, Happy Child recap can be read here. For the past few days, Atticus has been going to bed about 7, waking about 5 am to eat, and then going back to sleep until 8-8:30. I plan to night wean him at 6 months.
Food: Still exclusively on breast milk (from the tap). We plan to introduce solid foods around 6-7 months with Baby Led Weaning. We are skipping cereal completely. Atticus' pediatrician gave the 100% okay on BLW and skipping cereal. He actually said he wished more parents weren't so eager to start their babies' little bellies on solid foods so early. :)
Clothes: Atticus' clothing sizes are all over the place. He has a couple 0-3 month outfits from Petit Ami that fit. Most of his actual clothes are 3-6 months, but they are beginning to see their last wears, I believe. Some clothes are 6-9 months. Sleepers are 9 months, and onesies are 3-6 months.
Atticus loves to jabber, play in his jumparoo, and chew on Sophie the Giraffe. He has not started crawling yet, but he will roll and roll to get to wherever it is he wants to go.
We got rid of the pacifier about three weeks ago. I think we got rid of it before he really figured out it was there, because he doesn't seem to notice that it's not available for him anymore.
He can sit up for a few seconds at a time, but not long enough to sit in a high chair at a restaurant yet. I'm looking forward to that day so I can finally eat with both hands. :)
