Miles at 5 Months

Yesterday, we celebrated Miles turn 5 months old!

Yesterday was also the official day I could feed Miles rice puree! I can’t begin to tell you how excited I’ve been for this moment! I’ve been talking about it to anyone who would be forced to listen since his doctor told me last month. My mom and I have been discussing how to make his rice and milk porridge at least once a week.

It’s rice. It’s not that big of a deal. Except it is. Miles begs to differ, though.

Miles has also been getting better at firsts he accomplished last month! He’s scooting backwards in his attempt to learn how to crawl forward without scraping his face along the floor. He’s mastered rolling left and now starts out his rolls by rolling right once and left twice. We think he’s understanding how to use the word “mama” in the proper way, but he also might still just be making noises that sound like mama. When you hold out your hands and ask him if he wants to come to you, he leans his body forwards and occasionally holds his hands out to you.

I can’t wait to see what new firsts he picks up in month 5! <3
