Brady- 5 months
Watching Brady grow, change, and develop over the past 5 months has been unbelievable. I honestly didn’t think so much would happen in 5 short months. It’s actually hard to remember when he was a newborn, it just went too fast! But I have to say, every day he is becoming more and more fun. He is such a funny kid!
Here’s what Brady has been up to this past month:
*I think he weighs around 16lbs.
*He eats between 5-6 oz of formula each feeding (sometimes a little less). He gets 1 tbsp of rice cereal per ounce of milk. He eats every 4.5-5 hours.
*He has started spitting up more so we are giving him Mylanta 3 times a day and the doctor prescribed Zantac to help with his acid reflux. I hope he gets better…the doctor said babies usually start doing better with reflux around 8 months.
*He is doing really well sleeping in his crib. He usually goes to bed between 8-9pm and wakes around 6am. Sometimes he wakes up during the night but that’s becoming less and less.
* He wears 6 month clothes and is starting to wear 6-9 month clothes. He is outgrowing his clothes too fast!
*He’s wearing a size 3 diaper now.
*He loves his bathes.
*He’s still attached to his pacifier. We finally found a website where we could order more so after almost 5 months of stressing over his 1 paci, we finally have 5 new ones.
*He loves to be on the floor playing and rolling around.
*He usually wakes up in a very good mood. It’s so funny to hear him talking to himself when he wakes up.
*He rolls everywhere!
*He is a very curios (or noisy) baby.
*He makes the cutest little noises.
*He loves to watch tv.
*If he’s tired, he will go to sleep in the car; if he’s awake, he usually cries in the car.
*His Sunday School teachers say he’s doing a great job in class.
*He does really well during church services.
*He smiles all the time.
*He laughs all the time too… I love to hear him laugh.
* He is really starting to try to talk more and more. It’s so cute to carry on a conversation with him.
*He still loves blowing bubbles!
*He still drools a lot and chews on anything he can get in his mouth, but he still doesn’t have any teeth yet.
*His eyes are still blue.
*He’s continuing to get more hair and it’s coming in brown (I think), but if you get him in the sun, it has a red tint to it.
*He still loves playing with his feet.
*He tries to stand up when you hold him up.
* I don’t know if this is normal but he holds his hands together and hits them against his mouth. I don’t know if it feels good, because his teeth are hurting him or if he’s just weird??
*He has no problem at all with letting you know that he’s unhappy. He can throw some major fits.
*He is very impatient!
*He fights his sleep sometimes…especially for naps.
*He loves to look at himself in the mirror.
*I can carry him on my hip now.
Here’s Brady this month.
|He loved watching the Olympics with mommy.|
|This outfit is too cute. Wish we could have gone to the beach this year so I could have gotten a pic of him in this outfit on the beach.|
|It is so hard to get a picture of him because he's always moving and wiggling. His nickname is Wiggle Worm.|
|Happy 5 Months Brady!!!|
