Owen is 5 Months!

Dear Owen,
This week you turn 5 months old! Wow, time is flying right by us! I love you more than I can even express. My heart has stretched and grown so big because of the love I have for you. You are the light in my days and nights.

Check out the dimples on that adorable boy! 

Stats: You are one heavy boy, but I'm not exactly sure how much you currently weigh.
Clothes: You wear mostly 6-9 month clothes these days. When its warm you spend the day in a tank top onesie that has shorts.
Eating: You are nursing every 3 hours during the day and close to that during the nights too. Sometimes we give you a little formula before bed in hopes you'll sleep a little longer.
Sleep: Sleep has been rough this month. For the first three weeks you were up what seemed like every hour or two. You did great for a few nights, only waking once, but then you learned to roll from back to tummy, which wakes you up. We think the turn startles you, but you seem to like sleeping on your tummy when it doesn't frighten you. And also, you've kind of become a snorer!
Activity: We bought you a new jumper this month because you tried you friend Nico's and loved it. You jump and jump and jump and jump in that thing! You rolled over this month and now whenever we put you down you roll right on to your tummy. You also discovered your feet and love to eat them as much as you can. You're still into standing assisted on the kitchen counter, the carpet or wherever you are.

-We've been going on morning walks for the past week. You enjoy the sights and usually fall asleep before we make it to Starbucks and stay asleep for the rest of the walk home.
-You've started to teethe a bit, which we know because you have been drooling buckets and love to chop and bite anything in your reach.
-The dog aka Rocky is still your most favorite source of entertainment.
- You smile so so big at anyone who pays you attention and have the most adorable dimples.
-When I'm home alone with you I put you in the bouncy chair in the bathroom while I shower and get ready. You love this because it means I'm going to sing to you and play peek-a-boo with you by popping my head out of the shower every few minutes. You giggle and smile each time!
Owen I can't believe that my next monthly post about you will be your 6 month birthday! Oh geez, I'm feeling sad even thinking about it. I love you to the moon and back, baby boy!
