Aiden at 5 months

5 months old 5 months old

So… a few weeks ago… Aiden turned 5 months old!  (But then Halloween happened, and Autumn’s birthday, and this post got put on the back burner, so to speak haha)

Aiden is growing so much! He’s mostly in 6 month stuff, but in some 6-9 and some 6-12, depending on the brand.  He’s constantly on the move and he is so strong.  If we’re holding him, he wants to be upright, and he wants to be standing (with help).  He’s always kicking and always moving something.  Aiden has gotten to be VERY grabby.  He loves to grab at toys, books, coffee mugs, my hair, ANYTHING in front of him.  He has a very strong grip, too.

His favourite thing is to watch his sister.. he’s started grabbing at her, too.  He loves to listen to her talk to him, and he loves to watch her play.  He’s not yet crawling, but he’s moving so much that I have a feeling it will be soon that he’ll start trying.  His favourite toy is the Happy Driver toy (which is a steering wheel and dashboard), and he loves being held.

Aiden is still sleeping about 95% of the night in his crib, which is great.  He had a bit of a rough patch or a sleep regression, but seems to be back to sleeping normally.  We have our lovely bedtime routine, and it’s really working for all of us.  Aiden celebrated his first Halloween and went as Pugsley Addams!
