Wells | 5 Month Old

Weight: One week ago he weighed 11 lbs, 5 oz. I'm actually taking him in on Tuesday for a weight check so we'll see what he's gained since! I doubt it's much. Tiny peanut.

Height: Two feet tall!
Sleep: Such a good little sleeper this one. Wells goes to bed at 7:00 and most days I have to wake him up at 7:30 the next morning (!!). He takes 3 great naps every day and sleeps for 1.5-2 hours. He sleeps on his tummy in the same little corner of his crib (we call it Wells' corner!). Wells sleeps great in his crib but not so much in the car seat so this makes life a little tricky right now. I always do my best to make sure he gets those naps in his crib so errands are super quick or we just stay home all day and go nowhere. Otherwise little man gets tired and doesn't appreciate us disrupting his good crib naps.

Eat: Wells eats 5 times a day. 7:30, 10:30, 1:00-1:30, 4:00 and 7:00. Since he dropped his middle of the night feeding, it's increased his daytime feeding time and now it takes him around 12 minutes to eat. I still don't ever give him bottles but I did give him one last night and he took it!
Clothes: Wearing all 0-3M clothes and size 3-6M Kickee Pants pajamas (it's the only pj's we sleep in around here). I was really worried that he would grow out of his clothes and not have anything to wear the last 2ish months of summer but his growth has seemed to slow down a bit (typical at this age) so we might be okay!

Diapers: Size 2 Honest Diapers
Likes: Smiling, sleeping, being held. Wells loves Campbell. We have recently introduced him to some toys and he is fascinated! He also thinks Mickey is quite entertaining but only for about 10 minutes.

Dislikes: His bouncer. He has never liked that thing but sometimes he obliges.
Milestones: Wells learned how to roll over (on my birthday!) and he thinks he can't lay on his back now--immediately to the tummy. He can sit up (supported) and bear weight on his legs really well. He chews on his hands a lot and smiles at us ALL the time. Wells started giggling at us this month and it's the sweetest little sound!!

Month Five: Wells dropped the swaddle this month and decided to become a tummy sleeper. He talks to us all the time and smiles constantly. Wells gives us giggles now and it melts my heart. Last Saturday he scratched his eye really badly resulting in our first ER visit at Childrens but he recovered quickly and those baby blue eyes are still just as pretty as ever!
All About Wells: Obsessed with this baby. He is an angel and an absolute sweetheart. I smile at him constantly and he smiles so big right back! I adore watching him sleep on his tummy with his booty in the air. I watch this baby in awe and soak him up. He's growing too quickly and it makes me sad. I used to not love the baby stage but now it's my absolute favorite. Babies are so incredibly precious and such a beautiful gift from the Lord. I am truly treasuring this time with him before it fades away and is gone forever. Baby Wells is amazing and my hurt could just burst every time I hold him and snuggle him. These last five months have been so good for my soul and I am so thankful for this precious gift from above.
