LO's favorite things:
Age: 5 1/2 months, oh my!
Length/Weight: Not sure on the lenght but he weighs 20 pounds
What is LO eating: 8 ounces of Gentlease about 6 times a day plus a solid once a day. We've done bananas, carrots, peaches, apples, peas, sweet potatoes, oatmeal, and pears.
How is LO sleeping: Great! Goes down between 10-11pm and up around 9am. He cat naps during the day. His sleeping patterns are so much like ours that it is funny! This boy loves his sleep, just like his mama!
New milestones?: He finishes an entire jar of a solid at one feeding, where he was doing a half jar. He can sit with support and roll over quite well. He can spin himself around when on his tummy. He will also mimic the sounds that I make to him (mmmm, ooooh, eeee, aaaaah).
Something good: I have started signing to Carter! I have Baby Signing Time volume one. Now whenever I give him his bottle or change his diaper I will sign what I'm doing. When we go outside I sign bird and dog, too. It has actually been really fun learning this. I can't wait till he starts signing back.
LO's favorite things: Soft blue lovie, fisher price sea horse, light up teether, ducky tub.
Age: 4 months
Length/Weight: At his 4 mo check up 15lb 15oz and 27"
What is LO eating: Breastmilk all day every day
How is LO sleeping: He had a nasty ear infection/viral infection that sent his sleep all to hell but he mostly co sleeps and sleeps well with us. I'd prefer he sleep on his own but not enough to make it happen. DH said he was awake last night and watched Rory roll towards me and apparently I just lifted my shirt and he ate away - I don't even remember it....he eats a lot at night so we'll probably co sleep for a while. On work days I think he does a bit of reverse cycling b/c he prefers boob to bottle and will only take 4-8oz during the day then want to nurse all night, aw well.
New milestones?: Nothing super exciting, he rolls, he can kind of pivot around on his back, lots of smiles and laughs
Something good: He seems to be over the ear infection/viral infection. Having a sick baby was not fun at all!
LO's favorite things: Being held LOL Rory is a big fan of mom and being with me
Length/Weight: don't remember length but she is 15 lbs.
What is LO eating: just mommy's milk so far
How is LO sleeping: not so good...she eats a lot more at night than in the day! Usually she wakes me up about 5 times but we are cosleeping too so at least I don't have to get up (unless the boys wake up).
New milestones?: nothing new but she rolled tummy to back a few weeks ago
Something good: she is still very sweet tempered.
LO's favorite things: she has a little blanket thing with a giraffe head that she loves to chew on.

What is LO eating: BM, Gerber oatmeal cereal, peas... haven't introduced fruits yet because I don't want him to not eat the veggies anymore lol!

New milestones?: Rolls both ways super fast. Spins all over his blankets lol. He sits with support grabs at his feet. He has realized he has a tounge and it is funny.
Something good:His sunburn is much much better now. He is happy 95% of the time and the gas seems to have finally calmed to a managable level
