Brayden & Bailey are 5 Months Old!


5 months already, really?! It seems like yesterday they were born.


Bailey Boo ~ Our precious little girl. You and your brother are growing like weeds. You are currently wearing 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers. Your daddy picks on me because I still try to put you in your cute little 3-6 month outfits and unfortunately...they are a 'lil tight. It's okay though because you have some cute 6 month clothes too. :) You are still eating 6 oz. every 3 hours. We put outmeal in your morning and lunch bottles and then at dinner time we have started trying new foods. We tried carrots first. I was shocked that you and your brother both liked them. You ate carrots for several days...we wanted to make sure you didn't have a reaction to it. We introduced you to sweet potatoes last night. You liked those also. We are going to continue giving you sweet 'taters for a few more days and then we will try something new. You are still sleeping through the night. {Praise God!} You are just like your momma...you love your sleep! You have pretty much made your own schedule. You get up first thing in the morning...eat...watch cartoons; swing or bounce in your jumperoo and then your ready for a nap. You pretty much do this same routine over and over throughout the day. You still fight your sleep but once you give in...you are usually out for a couple hours. Your daddy and I have to pat you on your butt to help you fall asleep; however, this doesn't always work. You've started moving around in your crib every which a way when your asleep. Sometimes you've made your way to the foot of the crib but most of the time your cuddled in a ball at the top corner of your crib. It's sooo funny how you move around in your sleep. Your daddy and I recently introduced you and your brother to the jumperoo. You aren't that interested in jumping yet; however, you love looking at the stuff all around you. You love to sit there and watch your brother jump beside you. You've recently found your feet. Here and there you will hold your foot in your hand. You also like to kick that left leg of yours. It's pretty funny. You look like your trying to start a motorcycle or something. haha You are still drooling all over the place. Bless your heart...you've been fussy and you are always trying to stick your fist in your mouth. Sometimes you gag yourself. You love it when we put our fingers in your mouth and massage your gums. I can't wait until your first tooth comes in. Your newest thing is growling. Where you got this from...I'll never know. We've tried to figure it out. The only thing I can think of is when I squeeze ya'll I make a sound {I guess you could call it growling...} It's hilarious when you do it. If we growl at you...you growl back at us. It's soo funny! You crack us up. I hope to get a video of it soon. You are the 'sit-up queen.' You are going to have some mad abs one day if you keep it up. ;) Bailey Bug you have grown soo much this month. We love you sooo much and can't wait to see what next month holds for our precious baby girl.


Brayden ~ Our little Mr. Personality. You Mr. are growing way too fast. You are only 5 months old and you are wearing 6-9 month clothing. Some 6 month stuff don't even fit you. I can't believe how big you are. You are one heavy boy. It almost doesn't look right me carrying you around. You're an arm full. I don't even know if I can still carry you and your sister in your carriers at the same time. Ya'll are two heavy munchkins! You are still wearing size 2 diapers and ya'll can surely fill them up. :) You are drinking 6 oz. every 2 1/2 - 3 hours. You are not sleeping through the night yet. We had one night where you did and boy was that a shocker to me and your daddy. You haven't slept the whole night since then. Maybe we will get lucky real soon?! Hopefully you will surprise us! Recently you have been going to bed anywhere between 7-9...you let us know when your ready. Once your in your crib, we usually have to go in there a few times and give you your paci and we'll rub your hair and you'll usually fall right to sleep. Most of the time you will wake up at 4 am hungry. We feed you and you go right back to sleep. Your daddy and I trade off at night. He gets up one night with you and then I do the next. You usually wake up again around 7 or 7:30. Most of the time you are ready to go ahead and get up. We feed you...you watch cartoons....bounce in the jumperoo or swing and then sometimes you'll start whining to let us know your tired. We will "try" to lay you down for a nap. You usually only lay down for 30 minutes. We are trying soooo hard to figure out a schedule for you and Bailey but for some reason she likes to sleep more than you. You started physical therapy several weeks ago for your neck. Ever since you were born you have favored your left side more than your right. We thought it would be best if we started therapy now to help you. You are doing great! You go twice a week and will probably do it for 2 months. We have already noticed a HUGE improvement already. We could tell a difference after the very first time. We are sooo thankful that it's only muscular and the stretching has helped. We recently introduced you to the jumperoo. This has helped you with turning your neck...which is great. You love that thing! It's so cute how you get so excited and bounce in your jumperoo. You also love looking and moving the animals around it. You still smile all the time and laugh out loud. I love love love to hear you and your sister laugh. It's the sweetest thing. We have found that you are very ticklish...under your arms and especially around your neck. You laugh so hard when we tickle you. Brayden you have grown sooo much this past month. We love you sooo much and can't wait to see what next month holds for our precious baby boy.

Stacey - Declan has always fought sleep and Lexi embraces it. I think it is a girl/boy thing. At least you have one sleeper!! Beautiful babies!!
