5 Months with Brady

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!!!
