Briggs had his first experience with the lake last week. Which means he had his first experience with a lifejacket. I’ve yet to have a baby who is happy and comfortable in a life jacket – why can’t they develop a better design?! He was a good sport though and the motion of the boat even put him to sleep in my sister-in-laws arms for a bit.
He was at the doctor last for a well-check. At 5 months old, he’s 13 lbs and 26 inches – long and lean. He’s about too long for all his 3-6 month clothing, yet they’re all baggy around the middle. We’re also transitioning away from the swaddle for sleeping. Some days I think it’s a good idea, other days not so much!
