Luke Andrew - 5 Months Old

Month - 5 Months Old, February 12th, 2015

Height - unknown, but I'm sure he's grown at least another inch or two

Weight - 17 pounds, 11 ounces (up 1 pound 6.5 ounces from last month)

Diaper Size - 3 and I hope we stay in the size 3 for a little bit and this little dude slows down in the growth department. 

Clothing Size - between 9 and 12 months clothing! His 9 month onesies are starting to get tights....what else is new. LOL! 

Sleep - HA! What's that? Gets up once a night, sometimes twice a night to eat. I really dislike feeding him twice a night, but sometimes he is just so stubborn and won't go back to sleep.

Eating - 6 ounces of formula, 6-7 bottles daily. Oatmeal in the morning with 4 ounces of formula and a veggie or rice cereal in the evening (5pm) with 4 ounces of formula. Veggies tried: sweet potato and summer squash. Veggies up next: avocado, carrots, peas and green beans.

Firsts - solids (oatmeal, sweet potato, summer squash)

This is the first month where Andy and I have noticed a big change in Luke. The afternoon/evening use to be a tough one for us and Luke. He would be fussy and tired but we would be trying to keep him awake so that he would sleep longer for us. Now, we is super happy until around 6 PM. He "knows" when it's 6 and is ready for the 3 B's (bath, bottle, bed). Car rides were tough there for a little bit because Luke just didn't want to be confined to the car seat. Now he knows that he won't be in there long and is pretty content. Luke has discovered his hands and feet. He is getting better everyday at using his hands to put items in his mouth to "eat" and is even getting the hang of putting his "bink" in his mouth by himself. Sometimes it's not in correctly (upside down or even half way in) but he doesn't mind. He absolutely LOVES his jumperoo and can spend a good hour in there bouncing away. He also likes to watch fact if he doesn't hear the sound of the TV on, he is looking at it like, why isn't the TV on? Sometimes we will put on Baby Einstein's for him on the TV and if we are in the car and he is crabby we will YouTube Baby Einsteins and he instantly quiets down. That show is magical. :) Daycare has been going well and he loves it there. His teachers are amazing and I wouldn't wish for anyone else to be in there with him. Sickies are here and there. It's almost like he is dealing with a sickness every other week. The middle of January a big flu bug went around and Luke got it also. Diarrhea and throwing up were the main culprit and I swear the exorcist came out of him when he was throwing up. I have never seen someone throw up like that....OK that's enough details. Thankfully (only thankful for the fact that I didn't have to take time off of work) the bug really hit him late Friday night so we spent the entire weekend cuddling and changing outfits and sheets.

New follower!! Your son is adorable! My LO is 3 months and I am encouraged to know that she won't always scream in the car seat. She hates that thing. Hoping she gets better in the car soon. Have a blessed day!
