July: 5 Months??!!

We keep saying we love every age more than the last month…..but this age he’s really starting to love knowing that he can affect things in life and be a contributing member of society…..while he doesn’t have a job yet though, this is our most favorite age yet!  He’s growing up too fast!! : (

Age: 5 Months
Weight/Size: Almost 16 lbs! 95% for height, 40% for weight
Favorite Words: Da-da-da-da, ba-ba-ba-ba (All yelling of course), and random babble
Favorite Activities: The owl play mat (never gets old), his “car” (a plastic driving wheel with a fake key and working blinkers), chewing anything and everything, and picking flowers in the backyard (or tearing flowers petals from their stems really)
Signature Moves:  Rolling across the living room from one side to the next, grabbing his feet - my fave!!
Likes: Splashing in the bath, anything water-related (SO fascinating apparently) & toys!
Dislikes: Getting taken out of the bath, sharp shiny objects purposely being moved out of his reach 
Mommy Likes & Dislikes:  His baby giggles, there truly is no sound in the world better than that, and I’ve been told he has a really good baby laugh!!  Dislikes: Loose “stroller drop off” rules
Sleeps: 8pm-ish to 7am-ish; Naps 3x a day for an hour each in crib w/little to no assistance or rocking
Changes in Mood/Behavior: A lot less likely to be content with staying in one place for a long time…..our babysitter commented this week, “I can tell he is going to be an active boy!”  Pretty sure that’s what our breeder warned told me before I picked up Hunter for the first time
Eating:  Still 6-8 ounces 5x a day, around 8 oz before bed
Clothes: 6 Months, 9 Month pajamas (he's a tall one)
Proud Parent Moment: When I accidentally dunked him in our pool when I missed a step going in….good thing my reaction was of pleasure and happiness when he came up sputtering when I really felt like crying and having a panic attack!!
Looking forward to:  feeding the baby some solid foods!  I’ve been researching like crazy and just bought a Cuisinart Baby Steamer-and-Blender-in-One machine!  He has been showing a lot of interest in our food lately (loves strawberries, not so hot on apples), so I can’t wait to see what he’s going to like and what he’s going to throw on the floor…either way Hunter will get fed too which makes my life just a little easier! : )

July: 4th of July 4 Day Weekend Recap!

So we ended up feeling crazy on July 4th and decided the baby needed to see 
at his ripe young age, so we napped him a little later than usual and headed down the street to a huge park for the scheduled fireworks show with blankets & folding chairs and all- he was totally mesmerized!!  He was startled when the first one went off, and by the end he was a liiiiiiittle cranky (who isn’t after being up for almost 4 hours, right?) and was asleep the minute he hit his car seat on the ride home!  Here are a few pics from his first 4th!!

The following day we took Jack out to Long Beach to the big aquarium- I’ve never seen so many strollers in my life, or maybe I’m just noticing them more…to which I had to argue to the “stroller parking” attendant that just anyone shouldn’t be allowed to walk up and “claim” a random stroller that might not be theirs (we all know my mega-mommy splurge was my stroller) that they’ll just sell on Craigslist alongside the baby monitor that was stolen off my front porch last year….anyways the aquarium was a hit and even allowed us time to eat at Rock Bottom during his long nap afterwards!

Saturday we had a pool party with the Jackson family and Jack loved watching Cole play in the pool while the Daddies enjoyed a much-needed beer in the sun.....
