Eating: Still exclusively nursing. We won't introduce food until 6 months. He won't take a pacifier so he usually gets nursed to sleep for naps and bedtime :) It's funny how different I am with the second kid, because with my first, I never let him nurse to sleep. Must have been all those dumb "parenting" books I read. Ugh, you live and you learn. Now I could care less when he nurses or how much he nurses. As long as he is growing healthy and happy, I am happy. He still eats 3-5 at night...yeah..i . am. tired.
Sleeping: Nope. He's up around 4-6 times a night. Usually ends up in bed with me around 4:30AM and wakes up anywhere between 7:30-8:30. Little guy does not sleep well. It will come one day though...right? ;) He naps around 3 times a day 10am-1:30pm-5ish. Then he goes to bed around 8:15pm.
Diapers: We finally have gotten a hold of his rash issues- His skin is so sensitive so we can only use a certain type of cloth diaper and have to use a disposable like once a day to keep his skin from breaking out. It works for us, and I am so thankful because I have a LOT of cloth diapers that I used with Winslow and I am not ready to get rid of them. He is in a size 3 disposable.
Clothing: 6 month clothes and I am going to start getting out the 6-9 month soon!
Social:Smiles all the time and talks a lot! He is content to be in my arms all day if I would have it. Such a layed back little fella. I love it. He loves when Winslow talks to him and his daddy is the best at making him smile.
Likes: Nursing, being held, his exersaucer, Winslow, chewing on everything, being outside, sleeping in the Tula.
Dislikes:getting out of the bath, teething, sleeping a long time at once, being left alone for too long, the car, pacifiers, bottles.
What we're looking forward to: We have a busy next few weeks! Me and the boys are flying to Texas by ourselves in two weeks. We will spend 10 days with my dad. I cannot wait. Then right after that, my mom is coming for a few days while Seth flies to NC for a bachelor party. Lots of fun to be had in the next month!
Here is Winslow at five months:
Definitely see similarities, but they also look very different! Love my boys!
