Campbell | 5 Months

Weight: We got the chance to weigh Campbell a week ago and he was 13 pounds and 1 ounce.

Height: Totally forgot to measure him and now he's asleep. Whoops!

Sleep: Campbell is sleeping, on average, about 11.5 hours now. I put him down for bed between 7:30-8:00 and he typically wakes up around 7:15. He still takes 3 naps a day. His morning and afternoon nap last anywhere from 1.5-2 hours and his last nap is just a short cat nap that lasts about 30 minutes.
Eat: Just like last month, Campbell is still eating 5 times a day. Two of those meals include solids. For lunch it's oatmeal then fruit and for dinner its oatmeal, vegetable, then fruit. Campbell loves his food and will pretty much eat anything. I'm still breastfeeding Campbell. For the last 3 weeks he has refused a bottle and only wants to nurse. It's really not a big deal and I prefer to nurse anyway because it's so much easier but I wouldn't mind if this little phase ends soon.

Clothes: The little peanut is still wearing his 0-3 month clothes. All of his pajamas are 3-6 months though. I've put a few 3-6 month clothes on him and they don't swallow him. I think in just a few very short weeks Campbell will move up to the next size. We're almost there!
Diapers: Pampers Swaddlers Size 1. Although I noticed today that it may be time to move to the next size. Once I'm done with this pack of diapers I'm going to give size 2 a try.

Likes: Campbell loves his jumper. He plays in it all the time. Bath time is still his favorite and he really enjoys being outdoors. Campbell LOVES watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. Mostly he likes sitting in my lap and cuddling with me.

Dislikes: Campbell isn't loving tummy time these days. I think he gets frustrated because he wants something exciting to happen, like crawling, but he just doesn't know how to do it. He doesn't like to be left alone for very long.
Milestones: Campbell found his feet this month! He turns to noises and sounds. Campbell is grabbing for everything now. He always wants what's in my hand--cell phone, drink, etc. I love handing him a toy and watching him grab it and play with it. We're experiencing a little stranger anxiety these days. He pokes out his bottom lip and lets out a little cry whenever someone he doesn't recognize holds him. It doesn't take him too long to recover and get over it though. He's just started to reach for me a little bit and he also tucks his head down into my shoulder. Both gestures melt my heart.

Month Five: Campbell has really grown a lot this month. Not necessarily in size (little peanut) but in mind. I swear he gets smarter every day and it's so neat to watch! Life is running pretty smoothly and I don't feel just completely exhausted and worn out by the end of the day (most days!).
All About Campbell: Campbell is such a sweet little boy. He smiles all the time and it's just so, so precious! He still thinks it's the most hilarious thing ever when we pretend like we're eating him. Campbells (left) fingers are constantly in his mouth. It's starting to drive me a little crazy! I pull them out but he puts them right back in. He hasn't been interested in his paci lately which, I'll be honest, makes me a little sad. My favorite thing is in the morning when I go to get Campbell out of his crib. When he sees me he gets the biggest grin on his face and kicks his little legs and is so excited to see me. It's the best part of my day!
