Monthly Updates: Month Five


Barrett,
Five months ago we weren't sure what the future would look like with another Conway baby but today, five months later, we are in love with the outcome. You definitely have added so much joy and happiness to our family. The love between you and Amelia is amazing to watch. You two share so many laughs and kisses that you're almost inseparable if you are in a room together. You make some of the sweetest, funniest faces and I can't help but laugh at most of them.
We love you to the moon and back, sweet honey bear.
XO
Mom

Here are some special highlights for your FIFTH month:

Weight: 16 pounds 11 ounces (61%)
Height: 25.6 inches (56%)
Clothing Size: You're mostly in 6 month clothes. You still have a few 3-6 month sleepers that you can wear but I should be pulling them out of your closet soon.
Diapers: Size 2 Target brand diapers
Feeding: You are still taking the same amount of bottles (6 ounce bottles during the day and 8 ounce bottles before bed and for breakfast) as last month but this month we've introduced rice cereal and some veggies at dinner time.
Hair/Eyes: You have the lightest blond hair, which is still more like peach fuzz, and the brightest blue eyes.
Sleep: You go to bed around 7:30pm and you're usually up around 4/4:30am. You get some warm milk in your belly and you go back to sleep until 6:30/7 or until your sister wakes you up. You usually take a short 30-40 minute nap around 9am, a longer 2-2.5 hour nap at 12pm and a short 30-40 minute nap around 4pm
Highlights:
--You love to hold on and pull up on your feet with your hands.
--You tried food (peas) for the first time on February 4, 2013. You really enjoyed them!
--You love to be tickled on your neck and on your sides.
--You're getting really good at grabbing things and pulling them to you. Your coordination is very impressive!
--You've started boycotting naps, especially the long ones that overlap with your sister. NOT FUN
--You have the nicknames Bear Bear, Honey Bear and Chunk-a-roo
--You love your jumper and you can walk around in your seat to play with all the toys around it.
-- You've tried peas, green beans, avocado, bananas and rice cereal. Your favorite at this point would be the peas and your least favorite would be the bananas.
--You got a new bathtub that allows you to sit up a little easier. You're not a fan of reclining back in the baby tub anymore...you want to be up where you can see the action.
-- You have a very short temper when it comes to eating or to nap time. You know what you want and you don't like to wait!
--You love touching your hair when you eat your bottles.
--You've gotten to where you can really grab out handfuls of hair..ouch!
--Daddy's beard makes you belly laugh. You love to touch it and to have it rubbed on your cheeks and your neck.
--You like to hold on your lovie (yaya) and you like it to touch your face. Sometimes the yaya gets on your face and you freak out. You haven't figured out how to uncover your face yet and so you get really scared.
--You don't like Mommy to cut your fingernails and toenails but because they grow so fast, they get cut twice a week.
