(Can you tell my block idea isn't going to last?)
William started moving around a lot more this month. Not crawling yet but he is able to squirm his way across his blanket and reach for his toys. He is rolling over a lot more, often as a way of moving to his desired destination.
We started introducing solid foods this month (not technically solids, but real food--pureed style). I am attempting to make homemade baby food, most of which is fairly easy and straight forward. Oatmeal was my first attempt and although the first serving turned out well, reheating it the following day was more than disappointing. I decided to purchase his grains for the time being. So far he has tried oatmeal, avocado, banana, squash, green beans and rice cereal. His favorites seem to be banana and squash, but likes playing with the spoon more than actually eating the food.
His sleep routine has come a long way since his 4 month check-up, which is when we were quite desperate for help. He now wakes up 2 to 3 times a night often going for 4-5 hours at least once! Believe it or not, this is a huge improvement. His day time naps are a little more predictable but they change just about as fast as he grows.
We are enjoying our little boy. He is certainly starting to feel less and less like a baby (especially since he's no longer the youngest baby in our circle of friends).
