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!
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?
