Your Five-Month-Old

Author GreatDad Writers
Submitted 02-11-2007

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

He doesn’t 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. Don’t be surprised
if he gets frustrated and fussy sometimes. He learns by trying the same
movements and sounds over and over.
