5 months!

Bryar Wayne today you turn 5 months old! It is just amazing how fast these months have flown by with having you as apart of our family! You have grown so much in just the last month and are already wanting to be a big boy. It just breaks my Mommy heart seeing you talking, wanting to sit up, rolling over because our precious baby moments are going by way to fast.
You are still in a size 1 diaper but I am sure that we will be going into 2's before to much longer! At the doctor last week for your ear infections they said that you weighed 12.5 lbs! What an accomplishment with starting out at just 4 lbs 4 oz!

3 month clothes except for a few brands that are short in the length because I am pretty sure that you are going to be taller than all members of our family. Which is fine with us because Caleb Sanderson (a bull rider) is tall too ;)

Speaking of bull riding, you absolutely love to watch it at night while Mommy and Daddy do. It is actually what was on the tv when I had my first contraction the night you decided to arrive. You talk, kick, and yell at the tv sometimes although Mommy does not like for you to watch it for very long since it can become just "to much" for a little one.

You are the most easy going, laid back mellow baby that I have ever been around. I would say that you are a lot like your Daddy but I must admit that your sister was a lot like you as well. You love to watch everyone and see what is going on. Your big blue eyes just get bigger and bigger as you focus in on things. I am pretty sure that you are storing all of your energy up for around two years and then you will be "hell on wheels" for sure. ;)

I am so proud that we have made it this long with nursing. Honestly every week feels like an accomplishment to me. You are starting to take at least one bottle of formula while I am at work although we did just finish the very first can of formula that was opened for you in the NICU and started another. You are still eating every 3-4 hours except at night, you will wake up to nurse just enough for you to fall back to sleep.

I am not sure if we are teething yet but boy do you drool! (Hence, the wet spots on his shirt) You chew on your hands constantly or are always to pull my fingers to your mouth. I do have to admit though that I am pretty scared to continue nursing once your teeth start coming in!

We do still cuddle at night time although I have been moving you into your bassinet and you have really been doing great in there! (Huge accomplishment for us both!)

We are a month behind on your 4 month well check due to Mommy's insurance changing with her new work but you will be going this month :(

We hope to start you on cereal for your 5 month birthday but we will see how that goes.

I love you so much little buddy and I cannot wait to see all of the milestones that you accomplish this next month!

Story of Mommy

My photo
I am a sinner saved by the grace of God. A wife to the 5oh, and Mother to Charli Beth and Bryar. This is my story of Motherhood, life experiences and sometimes even my overwhelming heart all typed out. I believe in second chances, yet the firm hand of parenting. That sweet tea is of the comfort food category. Chickens belong in every backyard. Children should each have a responsibility of their own while helping take care of duties in the home. Sports are a must for our family, and we spend many nights on courts or fields. We consistently feel new to each of the experiences that are brought into our lives. But we are always excited for the journey in which God has given us.
