Your five-month-old is full of energy. He wakes himself up in the morning and is ready to dive into his day.

He doesnt just look at things. He wants to explore everything. He puts things in his mouth. He rocks on his stomach. He kicks his legs. He reaches for toys. He talks to you. These are ways he learns and grows.

Your baby is excited because he has more control over his body. He is able to reach for things he wants. He is learning to roll over. He can read your feelings by the tone of your voice. He likes it when you repeat his sounds.

You can have a lot of fun with your baby as you help him learn. All this exploring, growing and learning can even wear him out. Dont be surprised if he gets frustrated and fussy sometimes. He learns by trying the same movements and sounds over and over.
