5 months old

Will you are 5 months old today! Here are some highlights from the past month:

You had your first Christmas and didn't really know what to think--you actually slept through the older kids opening all their gifts and woke up about 8:30am. You didn't pay much attention to you gifts but enjoyed the company of both sets of grandparents that day.

I am not sure how much you weigh but you are starting to outgrow your 3-6 months clothing.

You tried rice cereal but really didn't seem to like it (like every other child). It seemed to upset your tummy so we are waiting to start it again until you are 6 months old.

You wear a size 2 diaper although I feel like we will move up a size before you are 6 months old.

We finally ordered your crib and put it up last Friday--you have been sleeping great in it. We are still waiting on your bedding.

Mom finally figured out that you would enjoy being swaddled for naps as well--the first day I swaddled you for a nap you slept for 3 hours.

You have been taking 2 good 2-3 hour naps each day since and still sleeping most of the night.

You have really been blowing raspberries this month--and drooling all over the place.

You have been spitting up more lately--I think due to the fact that you have outgrown the current dosage of Zantac you are on.

You are smiling a ton at your brothers and sister--all they have to do is start talking and you grin and grin.

You love your daddy--you missed him when he went to the Sugar Bowl ( he left on Saturday and didn't make it back home until Thursday)

You still hate tummy time but we are trying to get you to roll over so it is a must:-)

You were pretty high-maintenance this month until mommy figured out the nap problem.

We love you and can't wait to see what you do next Will!

How funny on the nap thing. We discovered that with Lauren too. Once we did, life was so much nicer. Sounds like things are going well at your house!
