How crazy is it?
Time just keeps on flying by. Thanksgiving just passed and December (my favorite month) is upon us.
It’s like, “Whoah, Santa. Slow down.”
For one I’m excited to spend my favorite holiday with Noah. He may be clueless but it’s just so exciting!
And he’ll be 5 months in two weeks! AAAHHHH!!!

A barrel of laughs
Even though crying is still your baby’s strongest form of communication, he’s also developing his sense of humor during his fifth month. He may start to laugh at pleasant surprises such as your face appearing from underneath a blanket or a toy popping out of a box, provided it isn’t too loud or startling.
Encourage your baby’s laughs, giggles, and smiles with funny faces and lots of general silliness. Babies enjoy hearing a variety of sounds and you don’t need special toys or instruments to provide them. Simply click your tongue, whistle, or make animal noises — your baby will love it!
Encourage your baby to experiment and play with a variety of objects. Something as simple as a clean cloth diaper might occupy him for several minutes. Watch him suck on it, hold it, and discover what happens when he scrunches it up.
Give him a light rattle and see him delight in the sound it makes when he shakes it. An activity center or crib gym is a good choice for this stage, as your baby begins to explore the cause and effect of moving a lever and hearing a bell ring, for instance.
Appreciation for a full range of colors
Babies see color from birth, but they have difficulty distinguishing similar tones, such as red and orange. (Babies can tell the difference between very different colors such as red, green, and yellow.) As a result, younger babies often prefer black and white or high-contrast patterns.
At your baby’s age, color differences become clearer, and your baby has started to distinguish between similar shades. Present him with a variety of colors in books, toys, and clothing.
Well, I can tell you one thing for sure. At least to the best of my knowledge, he has a thing for anything red.
