Winslow is SIX months!

Weight: 19 pounds 4 ounces

Height: This is where it gets funny...for his 5 months update, I said he was 28.25 inches.  That's because I measured him myself and I was obviously wrong because today they measured him at 28 inches even.  The nurse still couldn't get him to straighten his legs out without him squirming like a worm, so who knows how tall he REALLY is!  Let's just say 28 inches. 

Nicknames: W, Win, Monkey, Little Fella
Eating: HE HAS TEETH PEOPLE! TWO OF THEM! anyway, he Nurses every 3-4 hours with one feeding at night (around 3-4 am).  We started solids a couple weeks ago and he loves sweet potatoes and avacado! Doesn't love apples...we do one small meal around lunchtime and if he's not interested, I don't push it...he will let me know when he's ready.  We probably eat solids 3-4 times a week.  I'm hoping to knock out that early AM feeding sometime soon...I would love to get more than 5 hours of sleep at once! (That would also help if my hard headed body would get in bed before 10:30-11 at night.)
Sleeping: Sleeping in his crib from 7pm-3 or 4 am and then acts like he's hungry as a goon.  That silly boy.  He'll then go back to sleep until 7 or 7:30.  He usually ends up in bed with me for an hour or so...I love snuggling with him. :)  He still naps three times a day and I don't see that changing anytime soon since his naps are not that long.  He's happy so I'm not gonna try to cut on out or anything.
Diapers: Cloth is the bomb dot com.  I'm obsessed...minimal blow outs, and no stink like disposables. 


Clothing: 9 month and some 12 month outfits..I'm trying to squeeze him into 6 months clothes because I need to go find some bigger stuff for the little man.  ;)

Social: Smiling at everyone and he can also put his arms out to go to you if you clap at him to come to you.  It's the most PRECIOUS thing in the world.  He is also scared of face he doesn't know and he'll whimper a few times but when he sees me, he will settle down.  This boy is always squealing and talking too.  He is also making a lot of different sounds now with his mouth..they almost sound like words.  Still no real words yet, but he loves to scream at the top of his lungs. 

Likes: Being tickled on his ribs, kisses under his neck,  bathtime, rolling around everywhere, pounding toys on the table, squishing Darla's head, standing up with assistance, chewing on his feet and hands and anything else he can get into his mouth, pulling momma's hair, Sophie the Giraffe.

Dislikes: changing clothes, getting out of the bath, sometimes naps

What we're looking forward to:  A 6 month photoshoot/ family photoshoot is coming soon, lots of our friends are coming to visit us from Charlotte and staying here, and my mom is paying us a visit in a couple weeks. 
  Milestones/ things to remember: He has TWO teeth on the bottom front.  They are about halfway done growing.  He can sit up by himself for a while now.  Started food on 2.1.14- oatmeal. 
We love you so much, Winslow!! You have so much personality and we cannot wait to watch you grow!  
Look how big you've gotten!  



  1. Wow, look at how big he's getting!

    Where did you get his cloth diapers?

    1. I got most of them through a Cloth Diaper Swap group on facebook! They were used in very good condition, and once I received them, I did a bleach soak in the tub to disinfect them. (It doesn't mess them up at all if you use the correct amount of bleach) They are like new now! For any new diapers, I order through KellysCloset.com. They have GREAT customer service, and usually have coupon codes for free diapers if you spend a certain amount. I love their website and they also have a Cloth Diaper Support Group on facebook. Hope this helps!! :)

  2. Love Baby W!! He is changing and growing!
