Easton is 5 months

As I look at my sweet babe snoozing on the baby monitor I cannot believe that 5 months have past. Time needs to slow down so I can take a breath and take this all in. I obviously never really knew what mothers meant when they explain or attempt to explain the love they feel for their children, or how you would give anything for them. I almost feel overwhelmed when I even attempt to think about the love I have for my little boy. Every milestone reached amazes me.

Easton you have conquered so much. Over the past month you have perfected rolling from belly to back, learned how to eat baby cereal, started sitting for short periods (very short periods), found your yelling/screaming voice and on your last day being in your 4th month you started rolling all over the place. I think that maybe you have forgotten how to sleep, but my sweet boy we will get it back, someday. Mama now understands how important a "routine" is for you.

Most days looks like this:

7:00 a.m. (ish) wake up/eat/discuss our day
7:20 a.m. Mama has coffee time/watches the today show and you hang out in your swing then switch to your play mat
9:00 a.m. Mama attempts for sometimes an hour to get you to take a nap
10:00 a.m. Mid-morning snack time, get dressed and some more play time
10:45 a.m. if we need to leave the house...this would be the time to do it!
I try and get you to take 3 naps...and by try I mean I spend more time getting you to take a nap than you spend actually sleeping!

4 p.m. you watch your favorite show, Ellen...or maybe its mine? Pick up to house, attempt to start dinner and feed you before Papa gets home
6:15 p.m. Papa gets home and we either eat, or start dinner
7:30 p.m. Bath time
7:45 p.m. Jammies and wind down. This is where things get really tricky for us and all rules go out the door! : )

These days your sleeping anywhere from 45 minutes to 4 hours at night. Your still breastfed but this month we started introducing cereals. When you drink a bottle you usually get around 5 oz. We think you weigh about 16-17 lbs. Your wear some 3 months clothes and some 9 month clothes, it really depends on the brand. Your loving your stroller. Hating night time. Love smiling at any and everyone. And have developed some anxiety when your away from your Mama...oops! : )


  1. I can't believe he is already 5 months, time does FLY! It's so fun seeing how much he changes everyday. I love that little guy!

  2. Oh my goodness, what a cutie!

    I can't wait to see him again, and I love these recaps!
