I can't believe how fast the time is going. Big ol' Henri boy is already five months! This month Henri has been working on sitting up and is decent at it. It's tough for the big guys, you know. Can't say we don't get some good laughs at him falling over when we prop him up...but he is a good sport and just starts laughing with us. He is super giggling. Especially when he looks at Lucia. Oh man it is so cute. He laughs and laughs at her!
This month we also tried some sweet potatoes...but....then he didn't poo the entire next day, so we put a halt on the solids and probably won't try them again for a week or so. With Lucia, we did baby led weaning, which I prefer SO much more than mushing everything. Basically baby led weaning is encouraging baby to feed themselves rather than doing puree' on a spoon. So you offer them soft foods and they pick it up on their own and go for it. Lucia perfected this at six months and it was so much easier!
What else...Henri loves his bouncer and will stay in there forever if I let him. He talks ALL day long. Is in love with Lucia. Whenever she is even around him he smiles and smiles at her and tries to get her attention. He is sleeping pretty well...and by pretty well...I mean...waking me up all dang night. He is definitely growing fast though. He is already getting too small for 12 month clothing...I know right?? We are buying him 18 month clothes now. What on earth. He is 98 percentile for weight at 21 pounds, and 90 percent for height at 27 inches and his big noggin is 75 percentile. Here are some pictures of my sweet boy.
