Inspired by Leapfrog's "Math adventure to the moon" (which is one of Jacob's favorite shows), I made a rocket ship with mostly empty fuel gages and space crystals for fuel. (Painters tape and paper)
First, we just sorted by color.
Next, I numbered each color 1-10 and layed out the squares on the floor in their color groups, number side up. I wanted to see if he would be able to put the numbers in order by himself.
He couldn't correctly order the numbers. I got 1,2,3 correct and 8,9,10 but the ones in the middle were a little off. The funny thing is even with the numbers out of order he would still count 1-10 as he counted the numbers up each column. So he can count to 10 and read/recognize each number but doesn't "read" 1-10.
We also tried it with shapes. Again first with just colors and then numbers.
He got bored with the numbers and started lining them up on the floor in random order.
This little cutie is 5 months old! He just seems so tiny (especially compared to his big brother and sister) but even then I think he might be shrinking because he is just so small. And cute as can be!
He is a bit of a fussy baby and not a great sleeper. He is sleeping 8-10 hours at night and sometimes wakes in between and needs to be soothed. He only naps for 30-60min at a time. He wakes and needs soothing and then will usually go back to sleep. And in the evenings almost always needs to be held and cries every time I put him down even if he is dead asleep. Makes it difficult to get much done in the evenings when I end up holding him for hours, but I don't usually mind that much. Just look at that cute face.
He is wearing size 2 diapers and 3-6mo clothes though he really can still wear a 0-3mo outfit.
He wears 3 or 6mo onesies, 3mo pants and 3mo jammies.
I think he is teething because he is putting everything in his mouth and drooling up a storm. He is grabbing and holding onto things. He is getting more content playing under the play gym or sitting in the bumbo chewing a toy. His is getting more interested is watching Jacob and Evie move around and is noticing the TV.
He laughs, smiles, coos, squeals, and screams a lot. He is ticklish on his sides. He likes having people play with him.
He is rolling over back to front and has been for about a month. I think he might be our fastest crawler and walker, only time will tell.
He is still nursing about every 3 hours during the day, about 7 times a day. We are going to be starting solid foods any day, whenever I get things together enough to do it. I think that might help with the sleeping...maybe he is just hungry.
Who can resist this little face? Seriously, the cutest!
