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.

Hudson: Five Months

30 Aug

Huddy boy turned 5 months old yesterday. Here is what he was up to last month.

The biggest update from last month is that we have started solids. Based on our experience with Kyler (which was horrible), we were really dreading it. I was going to push until later but he was hungry. We bumped up  his bottles to 6 oz bottles and started solids. He loves it. We are already at 2 meals a day and I imagine that by 6 months we will be at 3. So far, he has had: apples, bananas, oatmeal, rice cereal, peaches, green beans, butternut squash, carrots, pears and sweet potatoes. He actually had quinoa today mixed in with his pears and loved it. I think we will try avocado today or tomorrow as well.

He has also started rolling over. He rolls from back to front but not too much the other way. That means he sleeps on his belly now. Crazy!

He is not sleeping so well. I don’t feed him in the middle of the night anymore and he isn’t too happy about it. He pops up quite a bit (stupid paci) but usually goes right back to sleep once he has the paci. However, he wakes up at like 4:30 freaking out looking to eat. I will not feed him before 5am so that is fun. The past few nights he has been going until 6am so I praying this is a trend.  If not, then we will have to let him cry it out sooner than later. I also think he has to get used to rolling over because now that he can, he is all over the crib.

He wears 9 month clothes and 6-12 month (Old Navy) clothes. I think I will was some of his 12 month clothes soon as we are getting close to that in the Carters brand. He is also wearing size 3 diapers. He has out grown his sun hat (again) so I need to get another one. He has a huge head!

He is such a happy and sweet little guy. He is pretty easy going unless he is tired or hungry. Other than that, he just goes with the flow. Happy 5 months!
