5 Months...

I'm convinced the time is passing quicker with two kids vs just one as I blink and it's already been a month since my last post. We've not been doing much other than hanging at the house playing, swimming, watching movies, grilling, and generally enjoying life with our little family. However, in the meantime, Drew turned 5 months old. 

  • 17 lbs
  • 26 inches in length 
  • wearing a size 3 diaper
  • a "supported sitter," but you have sat up, unsupported a bunch
  • drooling non-stop.  I've called you "Drewl" a few times. 
  • cutting 2 teeth.  On the bottom, your two front teeth are coming in.
  • mastering all of your musical, noise-making "things."  You've been shaking the rattle and keys, but now, when sitting in your stationary/exersaucer/bouncer thing, you hit the keys to trigger the music.  You also hit the music-maker with your feet while on your activity mat. 
  • you really only cry when you're hungry or you're tired. However, most evenings you also indulge in the witching hour which is fun...not.
  • just starting to jump a good bit and being more active in general. 
  • eating baby food at dinnertime most nights.  This last week was carrots and then sweet potatoes. We'll try squash and maybe some peaches next week. 
  • still waking once in the middle of the night.  A couple of nights you woke up multiple times. I blame this on teething.   
  • blowing raspberries and starting to kind of baby talk back to us. You're also starting to give "sugar" which I just love getting. 
The summer is flying by. And these boys are growing up and changing with every day. We're doing our best to slow it down...but have not quite mastered exactly how to do that.
