What? Five Months?

Five months have flown by and this little guy has my heart like no other!  He is quite the little charmer when it comes to his momma and his Mimi!  How can you not love those little fat cheeks and beautiful eyes and smile?!?!?! 

Here are Lawson's 5 month stats:

WEIGHT: 19 pounds by our scales
HEIGHT: Probably around 27 inches 

Still sleeping the same as he did at four months.  Sometimes even better!  We had to move him back in to our room because Justin is home from college, so I think Lawson sleeps more in peace when he is closer to us.  We have to have the sound machine on high to drown out Daddy's snoring though...lol!  

Same as four months, but has come to like nursing again.  Probably because I am home more and offering it more often than a bottle.  He still take both though.  

We bought a new bouncy for him, the safari kind.  He loves JUMPY in that thing and gets going pretty good sometimes.  Loves laughing at Hailey and Berklie being silly.  Loves to have me sing to him, that is how I get him to sleep some nights.  Loves to play peek-a-boo, tickle monster, and patty cake with momma and daddy!

He is starting to get on all fours!  We are in trouble!!!! He goes to take off and falls to his belly.  That happens a few times, and then he gets upset.  Then he proceeds to scoot...hey whatever works, right?!?!?!   

He still has strawberry blonde hair and blue eyes! He is getting more hair, and has much more than Berklie ever did at this age.  

He is getting such a little personality and can throw a fit like no other!  Especially throws one if his food does come fast enough...lol!  I love him to pieces just the way he is!

 Here are a few quick takes after dinner one night, so please excuse the food left on his face...lol!

Lawson 4 months

So, I have been REALLY behind on the blog and I apologize for those who follow it (mainly Alice Ann)! ;-) Four months for Lawson has come and gone, month 5 is almost over, and on the way to 6 months!  That is half a year old, people, seriously where did time go?!?!?!?!

Here are Lawson's 4 month stats:

WEIGHT: 16 pounds 90%
HEIGHT: 26 inches 90%

Lawson definitely has different sleeping habits than Berklie did as an infant.  She was a night owl and slept late.  He usually goes down for the night between 8:30-9:30 and sleeps until 6:30-8:00.  This would be great if I actually went to bed at the same time, but I usually don't get to bed until 11:30 or midnight....so my fault on lack of sleep.  When he is tired he wants his momma and his bed.  He does not like being away or out and about around naps or bed time (unless we are in the car).  Which is also very different from Berklie.  She could have cared less.  She'd sleep anywhere and still does!  So, I am hoping that football season won't be too rough with him.  We shall see!  He takes a morning nap about an hour to two hours after he wakes up and sleep between 30 minutes to an hour .  Then he wakes and play time, lunch time, and ready for another mid day nap which last an hour and half to two hours.  Then another cat nap in the afternoon.  

He perfers to bottle feed, so I have been pumping and then using a bottle.  He takes about 4 ounces with his food for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Then a six ounce before bed, and another 4-6 ounces sometime throughout the day (most the times in the morning and a little before naps.)  He loves carrots, green beans, squash, sweet potatoes, prunes, pears, apples, bananas, peaches, and avocado.   He does not care for sweet peas AT ALL!  I need to up load that video!  

He loves to be held and played with by us all, especially Hailey.  He likes his play mat, but since getting more active he just scoots off it for fun.  Like his exersaucer a lot, too and of course...BERKLIE!

Lawson rolls over both ways consistently and scoots where he wants to go.  He is now on baby food and cereal.  Sits up with assistance, and loves to stand up while you have him in your lap.

Strawberry blonde hair (looks like it may turn dark) and blue eyes!  Sometimes his eyes look green to me, but I think they'll probably stay blue like Berklie's.   

Needless to say....he is a BIG BOY!!!!  He is an absolute doll, and I can't imagine my life without him.  I unfortunately never got around to taking 4 month pics, so here are some of him throughout the month.
