Wes is 5 Months!

 

Can you believe that Wes is already 5 months? I swear I start every post about Wes the same! BUT REALLY! Time goes by so fast with a little one.

He is starting to giggle so much more! I find myself doing crazy, obnoxious things just to hear that sweet giggle. He is grabbing ALL things and sticking them straight into his mouth, including his feet! He loves putting his little feet in his mouth. He also has found his tongue! He is constantly moving his tongue in and out. He recently started rolling all over the floor reaching for his toys. He loves and needs ALL of his mommy and daddy’s attention. I also discovered that he is OBSESSED with a certain version of ” Wheels On the Bus”! Any time he is upset or tired I play the song and he is asleep in minuets! Its crazy!

He is loving his teachers at school. Apparently he even has a little girlfriend! 😉 Some times he is in such a good mood in the mornings that it really makes me sad to leave him. Mommy doesn’t want to share his sweet snuggles and giggles! haha We really are so thankful for the teachers at his daycare. They are seriously so sweet and listen to all my needs and concerns. Thank you Lord!

Wes is still drinking around 5 ounces every three hours. We did start baby food, so he has been drinking a little less. We have been so excited about baby food! A lot of people have been telling me to make my own baby food but the best choice for my family right not is to simply buy it. I researched and found a great company called Beech Nut! All of there products are REAL fruit/vegetables. The only ingredient they use is the actual fruit/vegetable. Wes loves his greens and carrots! We might have to pay a little more but we will have a sane momma in the house!  Maybe during the summer when I am not working I can try it out.

Wes loves:

Manhattan Toy Winkel Rattle : He absolutely loves this rattle! It’s so colorful, soft, and so easy for Wes to grab and put in his mouth! You can even stick it in the freezer to soothe your teething baby.

Baby Bandana Bib and Teething toy: I love these bibs because they are actually absorbent and super trendy! Wes loves them because attached is a teething toy for him to chew/play with.

Baby Einstein Rhythm of The Reef Activity Saucer:  He loves his saucer! We are always in it! I love this one because it has sounds and lights!

Fabric books with Crinkle Noise: We love our fabric/crinkle books that we can put in our mouth!

Rock and play: Yes, we are still sleeping in our rock and play at night! I will be out for summer in a month then I will start the process of transitioning him to his crib. So until then Wes and I absolutely LOVE the rock and play! He’s been in it since the day we brought him home from the hospital. HEAVEN sent!!

Pampers: We have been loving pampers! We have had zero blow outs or leaks! LOVE

3-Stage Deluxe SuperSeat : Wes loves to be sitting up and checking out what everyone is doing, so this seat his perfect for him! I sit him in here when I can cooking or cleaning. I even feed him in his seat sometimes! We use it ALL the time!
