5 Months Old

Hudson you are five months old!
Boy how time flies when you are having fun!
Here is a snapshot of your life at 5 months.

You still only eat about 4oz at a time, sometimes 6oz. You eat every 2-3 hours.

You have started eating rice cereal and oatmeal and really like them both. You now eat one of them every night before bedtime. You mostly just want to play with the spoon, but you really seem to enjoy the eating part too. From the way you act with oatmeal I think you will be a big eater, but that doesn't surprise me because mommy and daddy love food too!

You are sleeping in your big boy crib in your own room now!
You are always in bed by 9:30, but sometimes it's as early at 8:30. You are sleeping mostly through the night only get up once for the most part. You aren't completely consistent yet and that's ok. Mom worries about you when you sleep 8 hours straight so it's kind of nice to see you in the middle of the night (once is good though).

You are wearing 3-6 month clothes, but have a few 0-3 things that still fit  (mostly pants, since you have short little legs and a tiny waist)!

You wear size 2 diapers.

You have lost most of your hair except for your little mullet in the back. But it's starting to come back in very slowly. Mommy sure does miss your thick dark brown hair!

You absolutely love bathtime and splashing in the water. You kick and kick and kick some more!

You love to play in your exersaucer. You have figured out how to make it sing to you and like to chew on the toys that you can get to your mouth.

You still do not like being on your tummy, but do like laying on your back to play.

You are working on rolling over, but don't like to go all the way on your belly so you end up hanging out on your side a lot. 

You have figured out how to laugh!  You think it's hilarious when your feet touch your face and when you fly in the air. But if mommy starts laughing you usually laugh with her!

You are working on sitting up and do pretty good at it in your boppy. You love sitting up and standing. When you aren't sitting up you use your arms and try to push yourself up.

You smile ALL the time! That is what I love most about you right now. That smile is so contagious and you just flirt with everyone. You smile for mommy the most, but everyone else can normally get a smile out too. It's the sweetest thing I've ever seen. EVER.

You are the biggest joy to daddy and I! We are not one bit proud of you, YA RIGHT!
We love you to pieces and always will. We never knew a guy your size could be our biggest joy on this earth and that we could love you like we do!
And I had to share this picture because it's hilarious...checking out that moose!
