Higdon at five months:

    Untitled

  • is on all fours, scootching and so close to crawling.
  • sits independently fairly well
  • can go from all fours to a sitting position
  • gets stuck under furniture when he “crawls” backwards

  • is starting rice cereal
  • sleeps 10-11 hours at night, takes two naps during the day
  • loves to talk
  • sucks his thumb – our only thumbsucker
  • reaches for people he knows and for strangers that take time to talk to him.  It made Grandma Bea’s day when he reached out and grabbed her cheeks at her 94th birthday party last weekend.
  • Had his first swing ride and the best under-dogs ever!
