I feel like Beckham is acting so old old these days, I mean for a 5 month old and all. Like I can see more of his personality and he's looking more and more like a little boy. The time is going by so fast and he's ever changing, which means I have to be too. That is a little rough for me but I'm learning more and more to be 'go with the flow' due to the two males that I live with.
So two new things that I had decided to stress about doing with him were breaking him of sleeping in a swaddle and starting solids. It is ridiculous that I decide to stress about things with him because it always works out, as do most things in life I guess. Anyways, I do think he will be pretty malleable and easy going like his dad, at least I'm hoping!
Sleeping sans swaddle & paci:
It literally took two nights of laying him down on his back and letting him cry it out for awhile. In fact he is sleeping better at night and for naps than ever. Of course he always flips to his stomach and likes to burrow into the sheet and bumper (which is why there is a bumper on because he had stuck limbs and red spots all over his large head from hitting it repeatedly on the bars), but I just obsessively check on him and he sleeps just fine. This is not 100% of the time, but it is more often than not....at least for now. Oh, and he broke himself of the paci, by screaming bloody murder every time we tried to put it in his mouth.
Since that worked out I decided to start solids last night, mainly in hopes that he will start sleeping through his routine 4 am feeding that I just love.
He clearly has no choice but to love owls since this high chair inspired me to be obsessed with them:
He was a little more interested in grabbing the spoon and chewing on it then what was actually going in his mouth, but he swallowed it all and seemed to be sad when we took him out and didn't give him more.
In these last 2 you can really see the difference in his eyes; his right one is hazel and his left one is blue. They aren't extremely different and you have to catch him in the right light, but they are definitely unique and I love it.
I love everything about this photo:
