FIVE! I can't believe our sweet Carter Paul is almost a half year old! But before I get ahead of myself he's five months and a chunky, mama-lovin', sister-fearin' sweet baby boy! We love doing life with him by our side!

Weight: 18.4lbs
Height: 27.3 inches

Food | Real food! We finally started CPB on real food! We are still nursing quite a bit, he takes three 5oz bottles to school, and one snack. I nurse him exclusively at home right now. On the weekends, he'll have one snack a day, usually around lunch time. He is still getting about 25-30oz of breast milk a day. We started out with sweet potatoes, butternut squash, peas, and green beans. This week we're gonna try avocado as well!

Sleep | We've regressed on the sleep factor - sleep is hit or miss these days. One night he'll sleep all night, another night he'll wake up once, and other nights he's up for an hour wanting to play, or just super restless and won't take a paci, but doesn't want to eat. This mama is TIRED. I'm definitely re-training my body to run on 2 hours of sleep. {yawn}

Size | Still wearing 6-12 month clothes, 3-6 month and some 6 month pants, and shirts, I like them baggy so I will mostly put him in 12 month or 12-18 month shirts. Still wearing size 2 diapers, but probably moving up to 3's soon!

sick check-up

the FUN stuff | His little personality is really starting to develop! It really is the sweetest thing and I feel like he's going to be such a BOY! I couldn't be happier! His eye color is really a hazely-green rather than blue, I think it's safe to say he'll have his daddy's eyes! Handsome little fella! We can finally style his hair into a little fohawk! He loves to cuddle in our bed - but we're really trying to keep him in his pack-n-play next to our bed! He officially found his toes and has started sitting up with support! I can't wait to see what this next month holds!

first sick check-up! sweet baby!

trying food for the first time!
