Lincoln: Eight Months

3 Jul

Lincoln turned 8 months old on the 24th. He is now eating 3 meals a day and drinking 4 bottles. He weighs 23 pounds and I really need him to start crawling because he is so heavy! He is starting to say mama and dada now. Mama when he is crying and dada when he just babbling. He loves to chew on everything and anything but no signs of teeth just yet. He is a good sleeper and goes to bed between 7-7:30pm and is usually up around 6:30am. He loves to cuddle with his lovely and stuffed animal ❤ Lincoln’s favorite food is sweet potato if I had to pick…. he eats it right up! He is still the happiest baby on the block! Love our sweet chunk ❤

Lincoln: Seven Months

26 May

Lincoln man is 7 months old! I say this every single month but seriously he is the best and happiest baby. He is always laughing and giggling and rarely cries. He goes with the flow and is pretty relaxed. He can sit up for a bit on his own now! He is liking food more and more and loves to play with the puffs. He is wearing 12 month clothes and size 4 diapers. He loves his brother and sister and his momma 🙂 I stopped feeding him at 11pm and he has been doing great. He is sleeping through the night for the most part. He goes to bed around 7-7:30pm and wake up around 6am (give or take). I know I am going to regret saying this but I can’t wait for him to start crawling. My arms are getting a serious workout lugging him around. Can’t wait for him to be able to sit in a shopping cart. I think we are a few weeks away from that in which case, we will move him to the big car seat and out of the infant. Happy 7 months!

Lincoln: Six Months

26 May

Big man turned 6 months old. He is the happiest thing ever! He is sleeping so much better now that we got over that horrible sleep regression. He started to roll over finally 🙂 He doesn’t really like food all that much so school is working on that with him. He had a great doctor’s appointment and is catching up to Hudson. He is 28.5 inches long and 20 pounds and the biggest chunk. Love you sweet Lincoln!

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.
