Liam - 5 Months

Highlights from this month: We had your dedication on Mother's Day Sunday, May 10. We had all your family and a couple of close friends come to your dedication, and afterwards, we had lunch at the farm. It was an awesome day. I felt my eyes tearing up during your dedication.

Weight: 18 pounds 15 ounces

Height: You were 25 inches at your 4 month appointment, and you are probably 26 inches now.

Hair: You have a mohawk! Your parents and everyone else LOVES it! Your hair is slowly coming in now, and it's a light brown.

Eyes: You have violet blue eyes with a dark rim around them. The dark rim is from your momma, and you also get your almond shaped eyes from me. The deep blue color is from your dad.

Clothes: I have you in nine month shirts, pants, and pajamas. I feel like they are getting way too tight on you, and I really need to skip 12 month clothes and buy 18 month clothing.

Your Mike Wazowski onesie is my favorite.

Eating: Drinking 7 ounces each feeding. We started giving you apple sauce and rice cereal last month. You love the apple sauce and sweet pea combo. We could tell you were ready for real food when you didn't seem satisfied after your milk. 

Sleeping: Most of the time, you go to bed around 9 p.m. and wake up at 6 a.m., but there are also days where you wake up at 3 or 4 a.m.

Likes: When we are out and you're getting fussy, I like to bounce you in  your car seat. You instantly start laughing. It's adorable.

You love making raspberries. AND you love when I do it too. P.S. Why do they call it raspberries? How weird is that?

You love when people talk to you and look at you. You look at them and smile so big! You're definitely social.

You always find pretty people and stare at them when we're out and about. It's adorable.

You also love being toted around wherever we are at any given time.

Every time we lay you on the floor, you will start doing your crunches where you lift your head and your legs.  You even do that at your doctor's appointments when they are weighing you. It's adorable!

Waking up in the morning is one of your favorite times of the day. You talk. You smile. You look around, and you smile at your parents when we come and scoop you up to give you a kiss.

Dislikes: You are starting to hate it when I put you down.

Milestones: You have rolled over twice this past month!

Your top gums are hinting at two front teeth coming in soon. Your nose has been running, and I can tell your teeth are hurting you at times.

You discovered your feet and your hands this past month! During the day, you will stare at your hands and look at every angle. It's so cute! In the morning when you're in your crib, you will pull your feet up and play with them. You're pretty entertained by it.

Momma's Favorites: Your advent nooks that are rubbery and scented vanilla. They are a perfect teething toy, and they smell great.

I'm loving the sweet potato-apple sauce and rice cereal combination for your snack at night.

Outings: Your outings have included church, your Mimi's house, walks with Kittle, the farm, and running errands with your momma.

You opened your first bank account this past Friday. You seemed pretty excited to save your money, and I was pretty impressed you were interested in saving at 5 months. ;)
