5 Months

The twins turned 5 MONTHS old today! I can't believe that next month they will be half way to ONE! Seriously, time has flown by and it makes me so sad. They are no longer my itty bitty babies.

The day after Thanksgiving the boys and I flew to South Carolina for the month of December. I was so nervous about flying with them alone, but they did exceptionally well and slept most of the flight. There were actually 3!

Your first Christmas card

You are my good great eater! You know exactly when it is time to eat and you will let me know that it has been at least 3 hours since your last bottle. You take 6 ounces in each bottle during the day and 7-8 ounces at night. We started spoon feeding you Christmas day and you did great! You really got the hang of it pretty quickly, no big surprise there though. So far, you have had rice cereal, oatmeal, prunes, sweet potatoes and squash. You aren't a fan of prunes so I mix that in with your oatmeal. You LOVE squash and make a yumm sound when you eat it. It is SO funny! You are such a little ham! You love to laugh and talk, especially first thing in the morning. You can talk in your crib for at least an hour before you start to get fussy and want to hang out with me. You go to bed anywhere between 8-9 and have been sleeping until 6:30-7:30. You have about 3 naps a day and for about an hour each. You can sit up by yourself with a little help from your boppy around your hips. You still love your paci and can take it out of your mouth and then put it back in your mouth all by yourself.  You love to suck on your hand, too!  You finally found your feet a few days ago and I bet if your belly wasn't in the way you would put those in your mouth also. We are going to move you into a bigger carseat soon because you just aren't comfortable in your Peg Perego infant one anymore. Your favorite activity is jumping and you loved being in your jumper at Nanny and Poppy's house. You also love to play on your play mat and pull at the toys hanging. Unfortunately, you have an appointment next week to get fitted for your very first "football" helmet. Daddy and I know you will grow to become use to it and will not have any problems wearing it for a short time. Hopefully, only a few months. You are such a joy to have and I am so glad I get to be home with you every single day.

My strong baby! You have super baby strength no doubt. You have been rolling from your back to your tummy for a few weeks now. Your great- gran was the first to see you do it because I had gone to the Post Office to mail a few Christmas gifts to New York. You haven't stopped since. In the middle of the night you will roll from your back to your tummy and sleep. At first I was so worried about you sleeping like that since all of the recommendations say back is best, but I can't stop you from doing it. For about a week and a half you would wake yourself up when you rolled over and I guess you couldn't get comfortable so you would wake us up to help you. A few nights you were almost inconsolable and it broke my heart. You have since gotten the hang of it and sleep through the night again. You aren't the best eater, but you still eat enough. Sometimes you get frustrated with eating from the spoon and decide you've had enough. You sit very well by yourself, but I'm always close by to catch you if you fall. You are trying your hardest to crawl and can push up on your arms and knees, but don't know what to do next so you lay back on your tummy and just army crawl. It might take you forever to get there, but if you want to get there bad enough you don't give up. You laugh at your brother alot, especially when he's  crying. haha! You really enjoy being in your exersauser. You are such a good little boy and Santa spoiled you rotten! You are still such an easy baby and your smile melts my heart! You look more and more like your daddy each and every day!
