Taiki is 5 Months

This month just flew by! Only 5 months down and already he is looking pretty chunky!


Here are his developments for this month:

He flails his arms around a lot now and has started trying to grasp on to things (which is what I think the arm flails stem from). He smacks my face with his little fists until he is able to cling on to my eye or a nostril lol.

He rolls over on to his tummy and can prop himself up with his arms now, but only to the right! He can only roll to the right. He's going through a Zoolander phase.

He loves standing up (with help) and looking at people. He gets all excited and waves his arms around wildly and smiles uncontrollably.

Aila has gotten really interested in him lately and will always ask me to show her his face. She loves kissing his cheeks and showing him her toys.

He is really good at sucking his thumb, I'm already dreading the weaning process.


He had his baby photoshoot today and got dressed in a kimono and a tuxedo! He was a little sleepy so it was harder than normal to get him to smile, but we got there. His sister's had the best time dressing up in princess gowns and having their hair and makeup done!

He got his BCG immunisation shot today, the BIG one! The 9x9 stamp one :( He didn't cry as much as the girls did, but he was still very very sad.

He can stand and support himself on the coffee table. His knees buckle sometimes and he slides off every now and then so I have to watch that he doesn't dong his head, but he is getting better!

He cries and stares at me when he wants to be picked up. Even if he can't see me, he knows my voice and will cry if he hears me.

He looks at us when we eat and seems really interested in food. Just another few weeks or so and I will see how he likes solids.

I had to take his passport photos this month and attempted to do it by myself this time. These are some that didn't make the cut, but are still cute :)


Still the smiliest baby ever! He loves faces and will try grab onto them. His motor skills aren't there yet but he is getting better at slowly opening his fingers and wrapping them around the things he wants.

Love him to bits and love watching him grow :)
