finley & landry {five months}



Oh my sweet babies!! From four to five months I feel like you guys are growing out of being babies. Your movers and shakers and talkers and rollers. Sometimes I wish life had a pause button because I feel like I can't savor every moment like I'd like. And although I miss you being newborns I love watching you grow, change and learn.

finley marie

at five months, you:
weigh 12 lbs 8 oz
wear size 2 diapers
are in 3-6 month stuff and some 6 month stuff
Similac for Fussiness & Gas and drink anywhere from 6-8 oz every 4-5 hours
started cereal and eat about 2 Tbsp twice a day
you only like oatmeal cereal
have now tried Peaches and Sweet Potatoes
 size 2 nipple
have started sleeping about 11 hrs at night, from about 8:30-7:30
have started wanting to be laid down in your crib to put yourself to sleep
have mastered rolling back to belly and belly to back, there is no stopping you now
i think you are trying to wean yourself from your paci and I'm not going to fight it
you have a huge personality and are very opinionated
love your brother and are so interested in him
have learned your 'squeal' gets you attention STAT
are so selective with your giggles
i swear your gonna be crawling by 6 months the way you motivate around on your belly
have the exact same temperament of mommy
have learned 'strange danger' very early; if we're in a store and a stranger talks to you 9 out of 10 times you break out in the most dramatic cry
love you baths but HATE being dressed after
love the wind blowing in your face, even though it takes your breath away
are so interested in faces; when we hold you in front of our faces you want to feel and touch and explore
are such a chatty little girl, as soon as you wake up in the morning we hear you chatting away on your monitor
we call you "fluffy" although you don't weigh as much as your brother your fluffier

are in 3-6 month stuff and some 6 month stuff
Similac for Fussiness & Gas and drink about 8 oz every 4-5 hours
are still taking Prevacid twice a day
started cereal and eat about 2 Tbsp twice a day
you only like rice cereal
have now tried Peaches and Sweet Potatoes
 size 2 nipple
have started sleeping about 11 hrs at night, from about 8:30-7:30
are a master at putting yourself to sleep
are so happy when you wake in the mornings and you 'talk' with your mobile forever
have started sucking your thumb when you are sleepy
haven't started rolling back to belly but are so close
are such a content, happy baby with a big personality 
are super happy and ALWAYS smiling and laughing
are definitely going to be a red head and have amazing blue eyes
thinks before you bedtime bottle you must ALWAYS have a bath and refuse to eat without your bath
love your exercaucer
love people and the attention they give you
want to 'stand' all the time. i think your going to learn to stand before you learn to roll over
its official, you have your first little tooth bud coming through and it hasn't seemed to phase you at all
you are so ticklish. and all over!!!
since we call your sister fluffy, we say you are the solid one. you seem so skin but are def heavier.

It was just about this time last year that we were about to 'break' the news that you two were going to be blessing our lives. I think no one could've ever imagined what amazing joys you would be. Daddy and I love you more than we could of ever imagined. We can't imagine what life was like before you anymore and that's perfectly fine with us. We can't wait to watch you continue growing and changing into little people.
