5 Months Old

This Big Man is Growing sooo Fast!!! And I am loving every minute of it!
  • Evan wears 3-6 months clothes and still some 3 month...maybe because Mommy can't let go of some of his cute outfits...sigh.
  • Evan wears size 2 diapers.
  • Evan always wears a bib....ALWAYS!
  • Evan loves changing time more than any other time.  He smiles constantly and giggles when he gets wiped...BOYS!
  • Evan eats every 3-4 hours and is still breastfed.  He is able to go longer between feedings...but if he had it his way, it would be every 3 hours.  When he has a bottle, he now eats between 5-6 ounces.
  • Evan is still practicing eating his oatmeal with a spoon.  His reflex to push all food out is still pretty strong...but we practice daily.
  • Evan still has pretty bad reflux, which now is mixed with extra drool from teething...equaling 6-7 bib changes a day!
  • Evan still sleeps through the night without a feeding, but this past month woke more often around the 2:30 hour and needed to be soothed and pacified.
  • Evan naps great and really wherever we put him.  He will nap in the swing, carseat, our bed, his crib....wherever.  He typically takes one short nap in the morning, a longer nap after his 2nd feeding (same time as Zoe) and one more nap before bedtime at 8...and then we wake him to feed one last time for the remainder of the night.
  • Evan loves, loves, loves his swaddle and is swaddled for almost every nap and at bedtime.
  • Evan is doing great with tummy time....he isn't a huge fan of it, but he does really well.  While on his tummy, he tucks his knees in and is lifting his head so well.
  • Evan can balance on his side and roll to his back and almost can roll to his tummy from laying on his side.
  • Evan loves to stand up on your lap and sit with you, rather than swing or lay on the floor gym.
  • Evan loves to take his pacie out of his mouth and try to put it back in...sometimes this is successful, sometimes not.
  • Evan is such a flirt and so smiley!!!
  • Evan has CRAZY eyebrows that stick straight out like an old man!
  • Evan loves playing with his hands and is really grasping for objects...and, of course, bringing them straight to his mouth.   
  • Evan has only pooped about 5 times this past month...Yikes...which results in the most smelly farts you have every smelt!
  • Evan LOVES Zoe.  They are so darn precious together.  She hugs him and talks to him and kisses him and he just smiles away.
  • Evan doesn't like his bouncy seat anymore and isn't a huge fan of the bumbo. 
  • Evan talks so much!  Especially with his Papa...and he has started to make his presence known at Mass.
  • Evan is all pacie...and has sucked his thumb less and less.
  • Evan loves staring at the TV and all its colors.
  • Evan has a great disposition and is so happy majority of the time!!! I just love this kid!

Oh how I remember the days of reflux gone by. Jake, my oldest, had it. :( I'll never forget the day he didn't wear a bib all day (six months old...and yes, teething made it worse...oh, and he got a cold at around eight months, and it triggered it again). I even called my mom to tell her as if he had taken his first steps or something. Ha! LOVE the photo of his little piggies. :) Happy 5 month Birthday, Evan!
