Coltrane: 5 months old

HOLY GROWTH SPURT, BATMAN!

You’ve grown so much in the past month, physically and developmentally. During the first two weeks of the month, you and I didnt get much sleep because you were so busy growing. But it was worth it. You are now 16lbs and over 26 inches long.

Getting so big and tall and strong!

We love hearing you laugh and sing yourself to sleep. We’re finding out that you love nature, like Mommy. You like to look at the trees in the park or outside our apartment window.

We took a big trip to see Gigi and Pop Pop in Maryland. You met your Tío Paul Paul and his girlfriend, Angelica, for the first time. You had tons of fun laughing and playing with everyone.

Even though you hadn’t seen your grandparents since you were 2 months old, you didn’t miss a beat. Pop Pop is really good at rocking you to sleep and loves to play with you in your new bouncer.

Gigi is really good at making you smile and laugh.

You had your first solid foods this month. So far you’ve had rice cereal, apples, pears and peas. You really like pears.

You are also sitting in the tripod position, which is the precursor to sitting up straight all by yourself. You are very flexible and try to put your feet in your mouth. You can put a significant amount of weight on your legs. We are still working on rolling over.

You still love to read and received your first Highlights magazine in the mail.

We couldn’t really take that many photo shoot pics because you are so squirmy, and I don’t think you like it very much.
