My life as a mommy :)

5 months old!

My sweet little man is now 5 months old! I cant believe it, he's suppose to be my wittle baby still! We have had a big month and learned lots of new things!

Look who is now sitting up all by himself now! I am such a happy and proud mommy! I did cry the whole day when he started sitting up by himself though! He is suppose to need his momma for everything but yet he is becoming so independent and loves to lay in the floor on a palet and play with his toys. He used to love to sleep on my chest at night but now he wants to be a big boy and lay beside me. He also learned how to roll over from his back to his belly and his belly to his back. He loves making noises with his mouth, which is his newest discovery and he does it all the time now! We also have two teeth trying to break the gums on the bottom now! 

He eats 4-5 oz of Simliac Sensitive every 2 hours and has one thing of baby food at night for supper followed by 2 oz of formula to go with that. His favorite food is bananas and squash! Since we hit the teething stage he no longer sleeps through the night. He wakes up every 3 hours at night for a bottle. However, recently we stopped letting him drink a bottle to make himself go to sleep. We have developed a new schedule to better fit us and we love it!

6:30 am- wakes up for the day and has a 5 oz bottle. We then play and watch Mickey Mouse Clubhouse until 7:45 am when I drop him off at my mom's house while I go to work. 
9:00am- he goes down for an hour nap.
10:00am- he wakes up and plays with his cousin kayden.
1:30pm- I pick him up from my mom's and we both take an hour nap.
Once we wake up we either go to the park and play or go for a walk. We will then come home and wait on his daddy. Then he all just play together in the floor. 
4:00pm- he goes down for another hour nap while I clean up the house.
5:00pm- we go outside and let him jump in his jumper for awhile before coming in and letting him have some supper. He eats at the same time we do so that he will become used to eating as a family. 
7:00pm- he gets a bath, loitioned up, his jammies on then we will read him some bedtime stories.
7:30pm- he gets his last bottle fed by his daddy while I get a shower.
8:00pm- me and him will lay in bed with dimmed lights and I put the tv on the lullaby channel. Normally, by 8:30 he is asleep for the night. 

This past month he has been to his Uncle TyTy's football games, a trip to the fair, birthday parties, 2 weddings, and to the mall. He is such a happy, giggly, silly little boy. He loves to smile at every girl he sees, his jumper is his best friend. I couldn't have asked for a better little boy. He is def the biggest blessing I could have ever asked for. He has taught me what its like to truly love someone with your whole heart. We have learned so many new things and went on so many new adventures this past month. I can not wait to see what this month has in store for us.
