5 Months of Mr. Chubbs

Wow, time has flown by so quickly. My little 7 pound 2 oz baby boy is now a whopping 18 pound, 5 month old.

Jefferson is a BIG boy :). He loves to eat. He has finally moved to a 4 hour eating schedule. Boy am I thrilled. He is now eating cereal 3 times a day as well. I switched him to the oatmeal as soon as I knew he could swallow. He loves banana, and is NOT a fan of avocado. I plan to try it again in about 3 weeks. I've decided to make all my own baby food this time (so much cheaper) so I'm up for the challenge. I'm afraid my milk supply has had a hard time keeping up with Jefferson (have you seen how chubby he is?) so I'm supplementing 2 oz at night. I'm just out of milk by the time bedtime comes. He is eating 1/4 oatmeal cereal, all of me, and then 2 oz of formula before he is satisfied at bedtime.

Mr. Chubbers is now taking 3 naps a day. He takes a 2 hour nap in the morning, a 2 hour in the afternoon, and another 45 minute or so nap before dinner. I have tried to break the 3rd nap, but all he does is cry, so he is NOT ready.

And for the BIGGEST announcement (yes, this is the time for the drum roll people) he is FINALLY sleeping 12 hours at night. Yes, my friends, that's huge!!! I'm so proud of him.

As for mobility. I don't think we will be having any of those issues this time around. He taught himself how to roll from his back to his tummy this week. Now we have a roly poly. Jefferson also figured out how to walk all over in his walker. He takes his walker very seriously.

The brother and sister love is already getting to be so much greater with my two kids. Jefferson lights up whenever he sees Jewell. He also pulls his head up way high in his car seat so he can watch her while she sits in the car. When Jewell sees him she very happily says, "BABY."

Happy 5 months little man! We love you.
