Bryan’s 4-5 Month Milestones


Week 18-19

August 4th-10th

    • Sitting in big boy part of his stroller! (No car seat)
    • Reaching out for me and Daddy when the other is holding him- heart melter
    • No more boppy- sprawls out on my lap when I feed him or rock him
    • Putting his legs up on everything
    • Straightens arms, chest up when on tummy
    • Patting pictures in a book
    • Holding on to books
    • 8/6- Scooting all by himself in the crib by bringing his feet up under him
    • 8/8- I was holding him while making a bottle. He grabbed the nipple and white circle around it, pulled the nipple out and brought it to his mouth. Adorable:)
    • 8/10- reaches out to grab and turn book pages (with help)
    • 8/10- Grabbed his feet for the first time!
    • Smiles when you give him his favorite toys
    • Grabbing food or drink if I’m holding him in the carrier or have him sitting on my lap in front of a table
    • Snuggling with Glo Worm. Loves holding him when he’s going to sleep.
    • Gets SO excited when we come in to get him in the morning or after naptimes- it is AWESOME! My favorite thing


Week 19-20

August 11th-17th

  • Started sleeping on his belly with his bottom up in the air (freaked me out for a while but after I kept flipping him over and waking him up at 4am I asked the dr and she said if he’s strong enough to get over, it’s ok)
  • Taking pacifier out and often putting it back in
  • Big smiles when I hand him a favorite toy
  • 8/15- Object permanence!! Put my hand up in the air with a toy. He looked at it. Dropped the toy and he followed and looked for the toy on the ground! Smart boy
  • 8/15- Sat with minimal support!!
  • 8/16- Sat for a moment with no support!
  • 8/17- 1st tooth broke through! On bottom left.
  • FINALLY ok in the car seat!! Meaning he doesn’t scream door to door. Yay! It only took 4.5 months:)
  • Sometimes gets frustrated when he’s on his tummy because he wants to scoot!
  • Started doing baby signs
