5 months!

Dear Sawyer,

You are 5 months old today. You are the happiest little boy and such a blessing. Watching you learn, grow and discover the world is amazing. I can honestly say I have enjoyed every single second.

You are a big boy. You weigh 17 lbs. - maybe 17 1/2. And you are around 26 inches long.

You are still a really good eater. You are still only on breast milk and you eat every 4 hours. You take 2 6-7 oz. bottles at daycare and nurse 3 other times a day. Sometimes 4. We haven't started cereal yet. We will do this in the next couple of weeks. But I know that breast milk is so good for you and you are really healthy so the Dr. said no rush on the cereal.

We've gone a little backwards in the sleeping department. It is really just hit or miss. You usually go down by 9:30 every night and sometimes you'll sleep till 5 or 5:30 and sometimes you still wake up around 3 or 4 am. Sometimes the paci will get you back to sleep but usually you want to nurse.

You are wearing size 2 diapers and 3-6 months clothes.

You love to sit in your jumpers. You aren't really jumping yet but you love to stand up. You also love to stand up in our laps with our help. This is your favorite thing - you could do this for hours!

You can also sit by yourself. Only for a few seconds right now before you start leaning over. But you get better everyday.

You are so happy. All the time. You laugh and smile constantly. And are the cutest little guy ever!

I love you so much. Sometimes I think my heart could explode!

Here are some pictures of you at 5 months:
