5 months!!

Thursday, September 26, 2013

Precious baby boy, you melt my heart each day with the things you do. You make me feel a happiness that I never knew was possible.  I think that each new thing you do is amazing, and I think you're a genius. You have your daddy and I wrapped around your little finger, and we wouldn't have it any other way.  We love you baby boy!

What you did this month:
  • You are wearing size 3 diapers.
  • You are wearing size 6/9 months and some 9/12 months clothes.
  • You weigh 19 pounds and I'm guessing you're around 29" long.
  • You are eating every 2-3 hours during the day.
  • Your schedule has changed this month...you eat before naps and when you wake up. 
  • You are still going to bed around 8 and waking up 1-2 times a night.  We start our days between 7 & 8.
  • You are taking naps at 9:30, 1:30, and a catnap around 5. 
  • You are holding your head up really well.  You are even straightening your arms.
  • You have started belly laughing! It makes your Da-Da and I laugh. 
  • You have started eating solids this month.  You started with rice cereal , then avocado, sweet potato, and now carrots.  You love to eat and try to eat our food too!
  • You went out of state, to Texas, for the first time.  You also went to the zoo for the first time while there. 
  • You love to play in your crib.  You can keep yourself busy for a good 30 minutes in the mornings.  You have learned to turned sideways and kick your music box until it magically plays music. 
  • You love to suck on your toes and bounce on my lap.
  • You had to take Gripe Water for the first time for an upset tummy.
  • You are starting to sit up some on your own.
  • You love all things electronic - phones, iPad, remotes...
  • You also love mama's hair!
