5 Months


Happy five months, sweet Faegan!


You had a little bit of trouble with your bottles this month and decided you weren't going to take them while I was at work. Grandma Karen kept you and graciously dealt with a hungry baby that only wanted her mama. Miss Jessica has been patiently working with you ever since you changed your mind about them and after four days of fussing with her, you will now take your bottle.


I came home from work last week and started talking to you and you were just cackling. I don't know what you thought was so funny, but only Gigi has been able to get that much noise out of you until now! You love your Gigi and make the funniest noises for her.

Here is a video of you laughing at me. Ignore my annoying voice! I have learned you'll do anything to get those precious laughs and smiles!


You are still wearing size 2 diapers and 6-12 month clothing. Some of your sleepers are 3-6months, but they are getting a little tight in the length. Your little legs are the chunkiest things and I could just eat them up. However, you do seem to be growing into your rolls :)


We are waking up for a feeding at least once a night. I think your teeth are bothering you some. I thought we had some peeking though, but they aren't quite there yet. I don't think it is going to be too much longer because I can see the tell tell yellow line that Gigi told us was the perfect indication of a fast approaching tooth. You got pretty upset a couple of nights when we put you down for bed and I don't know if it was your teeth or you just don't want to miss out on anything. We have started the night time routine of bath around 6, feeding, read a few books, and be in the bed around 7. Most of the time you wake up around 6:30 or 6:45 and take after your mommy and daddy and are super happy when you wake up! You are definitely a morning person.

You still take two good naps in the morning, an nap after lunch, and have started taking a quick cat nap in the afternoon around 4.

On our visit to Georgia for Thanksgiving, we got Blair's exersaucer and you love it. The dog with the crunchy ears is your favorite and you also like to try to put the apple stem in your mouth.



We still are using your bouncer, but your feet are starting to hang off. I don't know what we are going to do when you outgrow it! It is so nice to have a portable seat that we can place you in and you are content. You kick your foot in that bouncer and make yourself bounce. It really is quite funny!

You stopped rolling over for a little while this month, but you started again this week. I think you must have been working on learning something else.

You definitely know who your mommy and daddy are and give us the biggest grins when we get home. We still get wet kisses from you too!

I am beginning to notice an interest in food from you. You will follow whatever it is that I am putting in my mouth and try to reach for it. We are going to start solids this month when I have Christmas break and I think you will love to eat! Your daddy cannot wait to start giving you food!

After bath time with Blair. You love Blair and bath time and especially love taking a bath with Blair!

You are grabbing your little feet all the time now. You can really only reach them when you are lying on your back. I have to work with grabbing little hands when we are trying to get lotion on after bath time!

We love you so much our sweet, sweet, Faegan! You are growing up too fast!
