5 Months

As all Mom's with little ones say, "Time is flying by!"
I can't believe Parker is 5 months (3 days shy) but we went to his well baby yesterday and I wanted to document his weight/height while it is still fresh in my mind!

Weight: 15 lbs 10 oz (25-50th %)
Length: 26" (50-75th %)

*He continues to sleep through the night (goes to bed between 7-7:30 wakes up around 6-6:30, eats then goes back to sleep until around 7:30) A mothers dream! Now I need to get my 2 year old to sleep better....

*LOVES to smile! But especially loves to smile at his big sister and his new favorite is himself! While I am getting ready he gets to sit on the counter in his bumbo and stare away at himself.

*Has yet to roll over, which I am actually okay with! I don't think I can deal with two moving babies yet.

*Coos and talks to you all the time, especially when I am changing his diaper (except when he's hungry, then it's just screams!)

*Loves his little minky blanket. When he is tired and fussy you can just put the blanket up to his face and he snuggles right in.

*Takes 2-3 naps during the day. One quick one early morning, a longer one (2 hours-ish) in the afternoon, and a quick cat nap around 5 (perfect for making dinner!).

*Still super easy going!

*Yes, he's been put in a dress AND has had a headband placed atop his head! But not at the same time and Troy knows about it....he is the one who told me to try the dress on!
The headband was a new style and I wanted to see how 'big' it was on a baby head and the dress was an alteration of the little dresses I have been making. The pattern goes from 12 month to 5T and I had a request for 3-6 months (Hi Lindsay!) so I had to alter the pattern and wanted to see how it turned out....he is definitely too chubby for my 6 month dresses ;)
Sorry, no pics of either!

*Drank water out of a sippy cup without a problem (I am going straight to sippy with him, no bottles this time around!)

*Troy Jr. in looks

*I think he will be keeping his blue eyes like his sister.

*Still spits up like crazy, hopefully after his Dr.s appointment yesterday and him getting an Rx for Zantac the problem will be solved! I hate that every picture we have of him a stinkin' bib is around his neck!

*Ate his first (of many!) solid foods tonight! He loved the rice cereal, which is completely opposite from his big sis Taylor!

Have I mentioned how much I love these kids?

Bentley HATED Zantac. It helped him from hurting/screaming all the time, but did nothing to help the constant spit up. Hope it works better for Parker.

Aw, what a cutie! Hopefully the medicine will work for him soon. I can't wait to see the dresses you are making. And who knew you had such a great model for Olivia's dress?! Thanks so much for making them for me!

What a cutie! He is becoming a big boy! I love the last picture of them both!

He's so handsome. It's amazing to me how quickly they change and all of the sudden grow up. He sounds like such a good little baby.
