Lincoln: Five Months

26 Mar

My sweet little dude. He will be half a year old next month. How????

This past month (this last week actually) he tried oatmeal for the first time and loved it! The Jenkinson kids have always grown fast and we end up feeding solids before the 6 month mark.

He is going through a pretty hard core sleep regression right now and we are EXHAUSTED. It’s pretty much every hour, or sometimes half hour. I know it will past but it needs to pass quickly. The days are becoming a struggle to stay awake.

He still hasn’t rolled over official, however, he rolls to his side all of the time and now is spinning in circles. Pretty sure when he learns to roll over, he will quickly get up on all fours. I can’t even think of having 3 mobile kids soon.

I saw this every single month but he is seriously the sweetest thing. I think because he is my last I am also obsessed with these baby months even more but I can’t get enough of him. He is so squishy, smiley and giggly I can’t take it! Never change baby boy.

Lincoln: Four Months

26 Feb

This kid. He has stolen my heart.

Lincoln is 4 months old already. He is still as sweet as can be. Since 3 months, he has started sleeping in his own crib and I think he is liking it. The last week he has been waking up more so I am sure we are headed into the dreaded 4 month sleep regression. Grrrrr. I have tried to stop feeding him in the night unless he really is stirring.

He went to the doctor and weighed 17 pounds and 14 ounces. Same exact Hud weighed at 4 months. He is still an inch shorter than Hud was at 4 months so it’s pretty funny they are growing at the same rate. His shots bothered him and he wasn’t my happy little dude that night. Other than that, his appointment went great. His hernia went away too which is kinda funny. I don’t think we were expecting it to go away for a while and he really only had it for about a month.

He is starting to play more with his toys more and more as well. He started playing in his jumperoo and grabs at the things on his mat. I think he is close to rolling over and have caught him hanging out on his side lately.

Lincoln, you are the sweetest and happiest little guys and we love you xooxox

Lincoln: Three Months / 13 Weeks

29 Jan

This past week, Lincoln turned 3 months / 13 weeks old. He is the happiest baby and smiles away. He is so sweet and I could just snuggle up with him all day long.He caught another cold so the poor guy has been super congested again. He isn’t sleeping through the night anymore but seems to wake up about once a night now. Once a night I can deal with. His eating habits are a little off right now. Sometimes he just won’t eat and will push it to 5 hours. Sometimes he prefers the bottle but this past week he would prefer to nurse which kind of sucks because I am back at work. Hopefully he will get over it soon and be okay with the bottle again… if not I may be searching for a new type of bottle! He will be 14 weeks tomorrow… time is flying by!

 

Lincoln: Two Months

28 Dec

Lincoln turned 2 months old on Christmas Eve.

He is such a sweet and cuddly little guy… or should I say big boy. He weighs close to 16 pounds and seriously looks 6 months old. People always ask me how old he is and they always guess much older.

He is such a happy go lucky baby. He really only fusses if he has a burp or gets super hungry but that is really it.

He has starting sleeping through the night for me this last week and this mamma is so happy. If he does wake up, he wakes around 4;30-5 to eat and goes back to sleep. Thank you Lincoln!

He loves bath time, to smile and his new piano mat he got for Christmas.

Lincoln: One Month

28 Nov

Lincoln turned one month old on Thanksgiving, the 24th.

He is a super chunk 🙂 He likes to eat and I am thankful that I have gotten him okay with eating every 3 hours instead of 2. He nurses in about 10 minutes and when he falls asleep, there is no getting him to eat again. He hates being gassy, poor guys spits up quite a bit and I can always tell if he needs to burp. He loves bathtime. He is so relaxed and content and could sit there all day. Funny because Hudson hated bathtime. He has his own little look going on, however, I do see a mix of Kyler and Hudson as he is getting older. Even personality wise, he is sort of a blend between the two. He isn’t as easy going as Hudson was as a baby but not near as fussy as Kyler.

He is wearing 3-6 month clothes for the most part, 6 months for Carter’s brand. He is about 13 pounds now and off the chart for both height and weight. His eyes are still pretty dark but they are still blue and his hair seems to be lightening up a bit. He has big hands and big feet so I am sure he will be a big boy too. He could take or leave his paci which I hope stays a trend. We don’t seem to give it to him near as much as the other 2 kiddos and I am okay with that. He only uses it when he is hungry and it’s really not time to eat. We also don’t swaddle him. So different for us because his brother and sister loved it but he prefers to have his arms out, he doesn’t really startle easily. He is sleeping in the pack and play by my bed and moved out of the rock and play a week or so ago. He isn’t a huge fan of the swing but loves to sit in his bouncer with the vibrate on.

He sort of goes with the flow… he is much more alert now and likes to start at the ceiling fans. He can get a bit fussy at night but we are learning what makes him happy. A good burp, warm blanket and being left alone is working right now.

Happy one month big boy. We love you and are so happy you are here!
