Happy 5 Months Grayson

I am so late with posting Grayson's 5 Month Post, but tonight was the first night he was awake long enough after daycare for me to take pictures. He was so into the camera tonight he kept grabbing for it. I really thought it would be difficult to take his picture. But he did GREAT!

5 Months... I can't believe it is already here! Where is my pause button? The months are going by SO FAST. I think I say this every month, but the last month has gone by so FAST!

Grayson what have you been up to over the past month:
~ We think you weigh over 14 pounds you went to the doctor two weeks ago and you weighed 13 pounds 14 ounces. We had to go to the doctor because you ended up having the whooping cough and you were put on your 1st antibiotic. The medicine helped so much and within a few days you were feeling SO much better
~ The past week you graduated out of size 1 diapers and are now wearing size 2 diapers
~ You wear size 0-3 month pants and jeans and size 3-6 month tops,jackets, and PJ's
~ You are still breastfeeding or getting breast milk for each feeding. You drink 5 ounces and over the past month we have introduced you to cereal. You are not a FAN of the cereal, but we are going to keep trying. Mommy plans on making your baby food and we may try veggies over the next week or two.
 
~ During the weekend you nap very well. You take a great 2 hour nap in the morning and in the afternoon you usually end up taking three one hour naps. At daycare during the week your naps have improved a bit some days you will sleep for over an hour and than other days you only end up taking short 20 minute naps. It all depends on if the other babies are crying.  However this week you have not slept AT ALL at daycare and that makes my sad.   
~ You are still getting up 2 or 3 times a night. Over the past week you got up around 11:45PM to have a bottle and then you would wake at 2 or 3AM and mommy usually just puts your paci in your mouth and you fall back to sleep until 4 or 5AM and then you want a bottle. You sleep 100% in your crib during naps and at night. With daycare mommy has decided that a schedule is not working so on the weekends we just try to make sure you get as much rest as you need. Trying to get you on a schedule during the week stresses Mommy out and it never seems to work so for now we are just going with the FLOW.
 
~ You love being outside, since it is now Fall we have been able to take walks in your Bob Stroller and you LOVE it!
~ You love to play in your exersaucer, jumperoo, Baby Einsten playmat, and laying on the floor.
~ You talk and carry on great conversations.

~ You have the best laugh and we love hearing you laugh at the silly things mommy and daddy do. Plus you are super ticklish on your belly and under your arms.
~ You love playing with mommy's hair, you grab it every chance you can and you also twist it in your hands when you are eating or going to sleep.
 
~ You love all your baby friends and your teachers at daycare. It was a sweet moment this past week when mommy dropped you off at daycare and you joined your friends for tummy time and reading books and you just smiled and started talking to all your baby friends. That moment made mommy's heart melt.

~ You can roll from your tummy to your back and you are so close to rolling from your back to your tummy.
~ You are so close to sitting on your own too. You are becoming such a BIG boy!
~ You love sucking on your hands and feet. It is too cute seeing you put your feet in your mouth.
~ You seem to be teething, but right now no teeth.
~ You love seeing babies or kids any where. You get the BIGGEST smile on your face.
~ It may not look like it, but you are getting a few more hairs on your head.
~ You still love bath time and you kick and splash around in your tub.


~ You love watching Baby Einstein Videos and Cartoons in the morning while mommy is pumping and getting ready for the day.
~ Over the past month you have become a Mommy's Boy!
~ Your daddy tells me every day that you are SPOILED, I just tell him you are loved!

Happy Five Months My Sweet Blue Eyed Baby Boy!
