Noah is 5 months . My little booger that still can’t sleep through the night and gives me attitude at times (lol).
I love how more aware he is.
I love how he now is getting curious about what we are putting in our mouths.
I love how everything that’s new has to be “approved by him” by putting it in his mouth.
I love how it is becoming a constant struggle when changing him because he just won’t stand still
I love how his fingers seem to be super yummy since they spent a majority of the time in his mouth
Yeah… some of these just drive me crazy! But they are here only for a while and then I’ll probably miss them (or not).
But the one thing I truly love is the fact that he tries to sing himself to sleep. It may be baby gibberish but that is music to my ears!
So let’s see what @babycenter has for us this week :).
Homing in on sounds
Your baby now realizes where sounds come from, and he’ll turn quickly toward a new one. One of the easiest ways to engage him is to jingle a set of keys. Wind chimes are great attention-getters, too.
Your baby may now be able to recognize his own name and understand that you’re speaking to him when you say it. You may notice that your little one turns his head when you call him or talk about him with others.
A growing range of emotions
Your baby can’t express his emotions in the same complex way that you can. Although he can let you know in clear ways when he’s angry, bored, or happy, his ability to show love and humor are just developing.
Your baby also shows a strong attachment to you by raising his arms when he wants to be picked up and by crying when you leave the room. He may also give you hugs and kisses.
Wow, Noah. You sure are getting the hang of things aren’t you?
