It has been an exciting month for Conor. He has perfected rolling and is pushing up well on his tummy. He can pull his knees up under him but hasn't managed to get up on all fours yet, although he does scoot forwards and backwards with his knees. He is trying to tripod and has done it for a few seconds but doesn't quite have the balance down yet. He also likes to stand (assisted of course, although he is very strong and doesn't need much help.)
He is sleeping better, on occasion. He does very well going down for the night. Now that he can roll he sleeps on his tummy. He will sleep through the night a few nights in a row, then go back to waking several times. He is now taking three naps a day, almost always in his crib, usually 45 minutes although ocasionally 1.5 hours! I strongly suspect he is teething and hope they break through soon!
Age 5 months
Weight 17.6 lbs (on our scale)
Lenght 27.5" (by my measurement)
Size 6 month clothes, size 3 diapers (4's overnight!)
Eyes Still blue
Hair getting very long, and he's worn a thin spot on his temples from sleeping on his tummy!
Teeth none yet, but appears to be teething and his bottom gums look swollen
Sleeping sometime through the night, sometimes up once, sometimes up several times..... He likes to keep it interesting!
Eating dairy free breastmilk (we tested the waters with some dairy and he had yucky green poop :( ) Nurses 5-6 times a day with one 7 oz bottle \at bedtime
Movement scooting on his tummy, pushing up with his arms, standing assisted
Milestones blowing raspberries, tripods briefly
Outings Halloween costume party, Christmas shopping with Mommy (and the unsuccessful quest for the $0.49 Leap Frog Alphabet Pal)
Favorite toys/activities Jumperoo, Mortimer the Moose, Winnie the HorseHippo, Winkel, Loopapalooza, peekaboo, singing songs, taking baths
Words/sounds Bzzzzzz, rasberries, loud shrieks
Memorable moments Thanksgiving at Nana and Grandpa's

We were playing on the floor and his eyes started to get very heavy, and before I knew it he was asleep. He rolled on his side and took a good nap right there on the floor. A few hours later he did it again. This time he rolled mostly on his tummy with his little butt up in the air.
At bedtime he fell asleep in the glider so I put him down, but he woke up and cried once he hit the crib. I picked him up and he quieted down but wouldn't close his eyes. I set him back down in the crib awake with his paci and quietly moved to the glider to wait. After about 15 minutes he drifted off to sleep.
I think this is quite possibly the most important "milestone" he's hit yet! There's hope yet for long naps and sleeping through the night again. It may not last but I'm going to enjoy it for now.

We stopped swaddling that night because I'm afraid he'll roll in his sleep and get stuck. The first few nights have been okay - pretty much the same not so great sleep as before. Hopefully it will improve.
Weight 16lbs 8oz
Length 26 3/4 in
Size 2-3 diapers during the day, 3 diapers overnight, 6 mo. onesies
Hair brown, still all there and doesn't look like it will fall out; getting VERY long and puffy!
Teeth none yet; drooling lots and putting everything in his mouth so maybe he's teething???
Sleeping Ugh... Usually up at least once at night, sometimes 2-3 times. He fights sleep more now. We just stopped swaddling because he was rolling in the crib. He still takes 4 45-min naps during the day with some longer 1.5-2 hour naps once in a while on mommy's lap.
Movement rolling both ways easily, just started pushing up on his knees while on his tummy
Milestones rolling, grabbing objects, sits assisted, holds head up well
Outings Detroit Marathon to watch Daddy finish his 2nd marathon, walk at Maybury State Park

Eating dairy-free BM, bedtime bottle of BM from daddy. Also tried soy/egg/tomato/citrus/chocolate elimination but that didn't seem to make too much difference.
Favorite toys/activities playmat, blanket on the floor to practice rolling and sing songs (Favorite is "Open Shut Them", mirror)
