Happy 5 Months, Baby Boy!

 5 MONTHS OF PURE JOY....
Everyday he does something new that melts my heart. His little personality has blossomed and I cannot get enough of this little stinker!


(Look at my big boy sitting up so well!)

 Stats:
We went to the doctor and he was in the 90th percentile!
Weighing in at 18.12 and 25 inches long!
(He lost a few ounces while sick)
(GRRRR!)



Milestones:
He found his feet and pulled them to his mouth! Now he plays with them all the time!

Rolling over much easier!

Jumping up and down on your lap!

Sitting up for minutes at a time! 

Sitting up in the tub playing with toys 

He is really looking Camden over. He just sits and stares and him. He wonders WHY in the world that kitty will not come to him! "Everyone else is fighting over me!"


Firsts:
Oatmeal/Rice Cereal with a Spoon!
 (Not crazy about eating with a spoon!)

Attempt at a training cup (not too successful)

First time sitting in a highchair at a restaurant!
(As you can see by that sweet face, it was a success!)

Celebrated his first Alabama National Championship win! RoLL TiDE!
(He was NOT in a good mood & would not look at mommy!)

First Snow!

New Year/Firework Celebration
Poppy bought him some fireworks. Uncle Dave had a show too! We covered his ears and he just watched them!

Suffered from his first cold 
 (This is the only way he would sleep... Mommy's chest makes everything better!)

Discovered Poppy's beard

Spent his first nights in his Pack N Play!


Loves:
 Touch & Feel Farm Book

Camden

People watching... he will stare you down!

Mostly the same as last month: hands, feet, Mickey Mouse, T.V. PERIOD!, milk, jumperoo...
AND of course, his mommy;)


Other Updates:
Gage is still eating around 4 ounces at a time, with a snack at times. He gets majority breast milk still with 1-2 formula bottles a day. MOST days, he gets oatmeal with water and a splash of juice mid-morning and around 5:00 in the evening he gets rice cereal. He doesn't care much about either one of them; but we are getting better. The baby LOVES his milk.
He is in 6-9 months clothes, mostly 9 month. He is still wearing size 3 diapers.
He suffered from his first cold. We went to the doctor for his 4 month check-up and the next day he got a terrible cold. He had a horrible cough, runny nose, and you could hear it in his chest. We had a few sleepless nights because my baby could not get comfortable. I cannot STAND seeing him suffer. Let's talk about sleeping...  before getting sick he was back to sleeping through the night with one "paci plug". Now, he is waking up to eat once a night. Hoping my sleeper returns soon!! We had to make the move to the Pack N Play, he was getting a little large for his bassinet. Hoping to make the move to the crib....ONE DAY! I just can't part with my baby JUST yet!:)

This is such a fun stage and I cannot wait to see what he does next!:)
I LOVE YOU, Monkey!

  3. We have that same high chair! LOVE IT!! I know it's hard to put them in that baby bed but it was the best thing for us! I put Liam in it starting at 1 month and it has been wonderful for us but everyone is different. Maybe you will one day, you didn't buy it not to use it :).....He will be too big for it before you know it. We just transitioned Liam to a toddler bed :(...time flies! Miss you girlie!

    1. Girl, it is a different story when you have to get up and teach 20 8 year olds! Sleep is VERY important so tromping ALL the way up and down stairs IS not an option right now!lol Luckily, his furniture will be his until he leaves the house so we will get some use out of it!

      Miss you too honey! Liam is such a big boy!:) LOVE our boys!!
