5 Months

Dear Chase,
You are 5 months old! I'm sorry I'm a few days late posting. We've had some major internet issues. 5 months just sounds so old! I can't believe it's almost your half birthday!!!! You are still such a happy, smiley little guy and you bring so much joy to everyone who gets to love on you.

Here are some things you've been up to...

You are still in size 2 diapers but close to moving onto 3's.

You wear 6 to 9 month PJs but you wear 6 month tops and 3 month pants.

You are eating every 3 to 4 hours and at night I try keep your feeds about every two hours.

You eat about 7oz when you have a bottle.

You are so happy and content.
You nap the best when you're being held and you don't ever nap in your crib. Sometimes I'll put you down in your bouncer for a nap but I love to hold you so when I can, I let you sleep in my arms. I don't care what bad habit it's starting.

You completely outgrew your swing...

...And you are sleeping in your crib in your own room now.

You are doing great sleeping in your own bed. You've only gotten up in the night a couple times in the past three or so weeks and you always put yourself back to sleep.

You sleep from about 9 or 9:30pm to about 6:30 or 7am.You blow raspberries and you drool a lot.

I thought I felt a tooth breaking through on the bottom, but I'm just not sure. You're not very fussy about it if you are.

You are playing more with toys.

You love to "EAT" your monkey.

You have two to three good naps in the day and a couple power naps here and there.

You love to be tickled on your ribs.

You love to watch football and you break your neck to do it.

You love your binki.

You always have your toes or hands in your mouth.

Sometimes you get your thumb in your mouth just right.

The flat spot on your head is getting better and better.

You grab hold of everything.

You are so flexible.

You laugh at your brother and all the silly stuff he does. He can get you to laugh harder than anyone else. (Infact, I'm listening to you belly laugh at him now. You're really egging him on with your laughter.)

You still love your bouncy seat. You can really get it rocking.

You are "talking" a lot.
You have tried rice and oatmeal cereal and squash.

You eat your food once a day. You do best in the evening and don't like to eat with Nanny, no matter how hard she tries.

You are always looking around and love being in new places.

You have almost rolled from your back to your tummy. You are so close!

And...Here is a little Halloween sneak peak.

I say it every month but you are so amazing. We love you so much and can't imagine life with out you. Life gets more and more crazy as you get older but it gets more and more fun with each day. We love you little monster!

Love, Mommy
