Corbin is 5 months old..... and 10 days

Ok, so I'm a little late. But only a little bit.

This month:
Corbin is 20 lbs and 27 inches, according to my own inaccurate measurement.

He's in size 3 diapers, size 4 at night, and eating about 8 oz 4 times a day. He goes to bed at 8:30, and wakes up at 7. I'm still trying to push that back to 8.

He learned about cause/effect this month- he figured out that when he pulls on his ducky toy, it vibrates and makes a fun noise. When he pulls on the rattle ring on his bouncy seat, it comes off and he can play with it. And he does these things over and over again.

He found his toes. It makes me laugh every time I put him down on the changing table.

He got teeth! Teething has been rough, and sometimes it feels like it's still not over, but he now has two adorable bottom teeth.

Technically from this month, but just the other day, Brit turned to me and said "From now on, Corbin will be referred to as Biscuit." Don't ask me why. I love it.

He has recently become a Binky Baby. Since he was about 1-2 months old, he would ONLY take a binky as part of his naptime routine, and would spit it out as soon as he was in bed. If you tried to give it to him any other time, he's spit it out within about 20 seconds. In the last few weeks, he'll keep in a binky for 20 minutes or more. He doesn't really cry for it, but I like that he'll take it. Binkies are cute.

This is what I usually find at the end of a nap:
