Collins || 5 months

Dear Collins,

You are now 5 months old and still the best baby!  We can't get enough of you.  You constantly have someone in your face trying to kiss you or entertain you or get you to laugh.  Thankfully you tolerate all the attention pretty good!

You are starting to play with toys and love to sit up.  You still need help to sit but love sitting in your highchair or the exercauser.

You are still a great sleeper and eater.  You go to bed around 9 and sleep to 6am.  you take 2 long naps during the day and a short nap in the evening.  For the most part you are on a great schedule.  You nurse (take a bottle at daycare) about every 4 hours.  You take around 6oz in your bottles.

You just moved into size 3 diapers and are wearing mostly 3-6 month clothes.  You are still a little peanut and I would guess you weigh around 13.5 lbs.  You are our smallest baby so far.

You've started sucking your middle 2 fingers more and more (like Graham did).  You will tolerate a paci some if you are really sleepy.  Otherwise, you pull it out and stick your fingers in your mouth.  You love to hold and play with toys and chew on them.  You can roll over but usually aren't on the floor long enough to do so.  You are still held a lot of the time. :)

I know people joke about how consecutive kids get shorted when compared to the first and while they may be true with some things, it's definitely not true with love.  You are loved hard by us all!!

We are so thankful for you and how you've completed our family!  We love you bunches!

Your sissy love you so, so much!
