5 months with Tommy
Tommy you are five months old!! Actually you are a little over five months now because mama is still figuring out how to maintain this blog. I go back and forth on letting this blog go but then I imagine my son being 2, 5, 10, years old and I know I'll love looking back at these posts and being able to cry over how sweet and wonderful these early months were.
Weight: 18lbsHeight: 26 inches
Clothing Size: Still in some 3-6 months (though they're starting to look a little tight) but he is mostly into the 6-9month items in his closet.
Diaper Size: Size 3
I am following the EASY method (Eat, Awake, Sleep, You Time). He usually wakes up around 7am and then I feed him and we have playtime for about an hour and half before he goes back into the sleepsuit and down for his first morning nap in his actual crib. (Up until two weeks ago, morning naps were happening pretty much exclusively in the stroller and if he didn't fall asleep on our morning walk I knew it was going to be a long day of no sleep, plus now it's way too cold for walks that early.) He naps for about 1-1.5 hours and then wakes up and we start again. He is taking 3 naps a day and after that first nap he generally is awake for about 2 hours between each nap. The last nap of the day happens around 4 and then we start bath time around 6 or so and then I feed him around 7 and put him down in his crib for the night. He is still waking up to eat 2-3 times during the night but I know that just like he learned how to nap he'll soon figure out how to sleep through the night. But until then I am savoring those late night snuggles.
Favorites: He has started noticing and cracking himself up over Hunley. He lights up when daddy gets home from work, and loves listening to Hakuna Matata, being naked on the floor, FaceTiming his grandparents and aunts, and he has started sucking his thumb which is melt my heart adorable.
