Five Months Old


Sleeping and Eating: Gavin has been so much fun this month! He still sleeps whenever he wants to, and his schedule hasn't changed much. A morning, midday, and evening nap and then asleep for the night by 9pm or 10pm. He typically sleeps through the night, but does occasionally wake up between 4am-6am for a nightly feeding. He is eating a consistent 5oz per feeding and once or twice a day I add rice cereal to his bottle. This month, we tried rice cereal, pears, and sweet potatoes, but I think it's a little early for him to be eating baby food. He made a mess with the pears but did much better with the sweet potatoes. We're going to try bananas this week...so we'll so how that goes! :)

Likes and Dislikes: Gavin loves Sophie the Giraffe and his Jumperoo! These two items keep him entertained all day. He jumps for a good hour and then eventually passes out in the Jumperoo...only to wake up and start jumping again. Lol I love watching him do this. He's also been arching back in the Boppy pillow to the point that he is upside down. He likes to sit in his Bumbo seat and watch me cook in the kitchen. He especially likes when I sing and dance while cooking and often laughs hysterically. :D He's recently found his toes and likes to eat them, while also taking off his socks and eating them, too.

Lately, he dislikes his car seat and whines a bit when he has to buckle in, but as soon as he has a few toys he calms down. He still loves You Are My Sunshine and I sing it to him a few times a day. He has noticed our cats (Torre and Abigail) and I think he likes them. He's always trying to "pet" them and they've done really well adjusting to him. He has been much more talkative this month and has been saying "oooooooo" tons. He still loves bath time and I think he's going to be quite the little fish.

Milestones: He is a little roly poly! He rolls all over the place! He is reaching for things easily now and likes to pull on my hair (OUCH!). He's also still doing his little Army crawl and I don't doubt that he will be crawling very soon.

Gavin,
You are the sweetest, most loving child and I am so proud to be your Mommy. You make me laugh and smile so much and I love that you are my little buddy! Daddy and I love you very much and are very happy that God gave us you. :)
Love, Mommy


Happy boy in the tub!

he's so purchase! and yay for some long periods of sleep! Elyse is now sleeping fairly consistently from 7:45-8:00 until at least 5:30 or 6! Now if we can just get that last hour down...

And just for the record, I'm a huge fan of Christmas & birthday celebrations so while part of me is freaking out about your countdown, the other part is super duper excited!
