Jackson's 5 month update

Holy cow I have a 5 month old!!!  Time is just flying by.  I really felt that when my nephew was born last week--holding him I couldn't believe that Jackson was smaller than him, not so long ago!   That being said he is such a fun age right now.  Learning a TON and just being his funny self.  The only thing I DON'T like about this age is the teething and sleeplessness... but well this too shall pass!

Weight/Length: 16.5lbs and 24.25in  (note- we did these ourselves this month so they may not be completely accurate lol)
Clothing Size: 3-6 months mostly, can wear a few 6-9
Diaper Size:  Finishing the last pack of size 2s then moving to size 3!
Feeding: Exclusively Breastfeeding, eating every 3 hours for about 10-15min, drinks 4-5oz when being fed expressed milk from a bottle.  Probably starting some oatmeal or rice cereal later this month, he's super interested in solids!
Milestones: Finally rolling over more regularly (from belly to back), getting better coordination when reaching for things (and putting them in his mouth), babbling a ton (using some consonants too), Can lift his torso up at a 45 degree angle when on his tummy, can grab his toes and ALMOST get them in his mouth lol.
Sleep: Still not going the best-- working on getting him to nap longer during the day and in turn hopefully get him to sleep better longer stretches at night.
Likes/Dislikes:  Loves his activity gym and playmat, loves the bumbo and jumperoo, loves music and being sang/talked to, likes going on stroller walks outside and also being worn in the Ergo.  His favorite toy is a crinkly teething blanket.  Dislikes lately include napping (lol-he's an expert sleep fighter) and being left alone lol he always hollars out if I leave him in his swing or something and go into the next room.
