5 months!

Height: N/A
Weight: 17 lbs. 2 ounces (last week)
Food: Enfamil A.R. for babies who Spit. Rice cereal in the a.m. and a vegetable in the evening. He drinks 4-6 ounces of formula every 3 hours or so during the day.
Sleep: He is sleeping through the night. Our schedule has been a little more lax lately due to the holidays so his bed time has changed each night. One night it may be 7 and the next 9. Last night he went to sleep at 6:30 and woke at 7:00 this morning. He usually sleeps 11 hours or so. But maybe he'll start sleeping 12 hours like last night! :) He has been waking up some because he's been a little sick with a sinus/ear infection. But he always go back to sleep easily. Still loving his nap nanny! Such a good baby!
Clothes: 6-9 months and size 3 shoes.
Favorites: He loves big sister! He loves to just sit in his car seat by the window and play with a toy. He likes to try to pull things apart! This is hilarious! It's almost like he's working out! ha! He gets sweaty from it! He enjoys Praise Baby and Baby Einstein. Loves his swing now! PTL! ha! He likes his exersaucer and sit and play. He has started going for toys during tummy time. He can roll from back to belly. He has rolled from belly to back but nothing consistent. He's just pretty darn easy to please! Such a laid back boy! He loves to squeal! and we love hearing him squeal! Oh and he loves loves loves giving open mouth kisses on the cheek! Mommy loves this too! so so sweet! He loves to stand while we hold his hands. Wow! He's came a long way from an itty bitty newborn babe!

God is good! Can't wait to see what new things he'll do this month!

*Went to Children's Hospital this month to have his bump on his forehead checked out. Dr. said it was either a dermoid cyst or another hemangioma under the skin (both very common). Will schedule a CT scan to check and see which of the two it is. Either way, not a big deal at all and no rush to get it seen about. Very thankful for this!

4 months...

So, I'm a little behind on the 4 month post (considering I'll be typing the 5 months post as soon as I wrap this post up!) but didn't want to leave it out.

Height: 25 inches
Weight: 15 lbs. 13 ounces
Food: Enfamil A.R. for babies who Spit. He drinks 4-6 ounces every few hours. We also introduced rice cereal about a week before he turned four months. He was pretty excited about that! During the month we began introducing green beans and peas. So far he's loved everything. We haven't really been consistent with the solids though. It's been busy around here!
Sleep: He is sleeping through the night. He usually sleeps 10 1/2-11 hours. He wakes every now and again but goes back to sleep. He's such a good baby! Usually ready for bed around 7:30 each night.
Clothes: 6 months in everything
Favorites: He loves talking to big sister, mommy and daddy! He loves trying to grab for things. We introduced his sit and play and exersaucer this month. He loves them both for a bit but when he gets tired he's ready to get out and is sure to let me know about it! lol! He especially loves it when sister plays with him while he's in one of those toys! He's such a smiley happy baby and has such a big laugh! We love, love, love making him giggle! :)

hospital gown...

Oh Spicer Beth! This kid seriously cracks me up! Lately she has really been pretending a LOT! Her absolute favorite thing to pretend is "house!" Just about every time she plays "house" she is pregnant or "pregant" as she says. lol! She is the mommy, there is a big sister and she's going to have a baby at the hospital. (you know just like mommy did recently! ha! she's played this since then) When daddy plays he's her husband! I love it! Jared and I are always getting a kick out of it! We love listening to her "pretend." It's the best thing ever! Yesterday, during her pretend time she got the idea to make a hospital gown with a blanket and ponytail holder. She knew exactly what to do just asked me to help her make it a success! Naturally, I had to snap a picture of it! In this picture she has her piggy (which by the way is her favorite stuffed animal that she has recently been inseparable from!) in her belly! She always has something in her belly when she is "pregant!" Love her!!
