Okay, now please excuse me from hyperventilating...but my sweet little Avery bug is thisclose to being HALF A YEAR OLD!!! How did that even happen? I mean, wasn't I just complaining about my awful morning sickness with him yesterday?! But, low and behold, no matter how much I try to pause time, it just doesn't work. So, alas here we are. My sweet Avery is 5 months old.
I'm not exactly sure what his weight is right now. We don't go back to the pediatrician until he's 6 months old. And thankfully, he hasn't been sick, so we haven't had to visit unexpectedly!
So what has my little bugaboo been up to this month?
Well, we did try a teeny tiny bit amount of food. He has tried sweet potatoes, avocado, and green beans. He's certainly not as big of an eater as his big brother was at this age, so I'm not pushing it. Just following his cues really.
Avery is wearing mostly 9 month clothing! If it's a one piece outfit from Lincoln, it's too small. While we were in Tennessee, I tried to put this adorable romper on him, but I couldn't get it over his big ol' belly!!
His sleep may have regressed a bit this month, but I still consider ourselves very lucky. He's back to getting a bottle around 4am, but then he'll go back to sleep anywhere between 6:30-7:30am. I'm not complaining one bit!
Our vacation to Tennessee was our last hurrah with the beloved rock n' play. When we got back from our trip, made the transition to the pack n' play, and it went really well. I'm not ready to move him into his own room yet. I love having him close by at night.
He has started making the "M" sound. Which means he screams, "MAAAAAA!!!" all the time. I know at this point it still mostly just a sound, but it's still nice to hear.
He's still the sweetest, happiest baby ever. I seriously cannot get enough of him. And yes, I say that all the time!
He's still holding onto those baby blues! I'm pretty excited and hope they don't change!! They're so gorgeous!!
We had our 5 month photo shoot the other day. Here are a few of my favorite shots.
And here is a collage of a few of my favorite photos from this past month.
My little Avery bug. Sweet as can be. Gosh I love this baby boy of mine!
