5 months!

The months just keep flying by! Our little (big) guy is 5 months old already! Here's what Mr. Evan is up to these days!
  • Weight: between 16.5-17 lbs (weighed 17lbs 2oz on Friday, the 1st, but lost weight over the weekend while sick & got down to 16lbs 7oz. Weighed 16lbs 8oz today (the 7th)).
  • Height: 26 inches
  • Eating 5-6 oz every 3 hours during the day
  • When healthy, usually sleeps 9 straight hours at night.
  • Changed his bedtime up and now is OUT by 6:30. 
  • Usually sleeps 6:30-3:30/4:00, wakes up to eat, & goes back to sleep until around 6-6:30.
  • Had strep throat again, another ear infection, and Norovirus. NO FUN!
  • Had tubes placed today! Hoping for NO more ear infections!
  • Tested to see if he was a carrier for strep because a new doctor thought he was (momma knew he wasn't, been there/done that with Aubs). Test came back normal, he is not a carrier. Just a strep magnet like Aubs :(
  • Wearing size 3 diapers. They are a bit big on him but I was afraid he would outgrow the 2's before we finished a new case. 
  • Wearing size 3 month/3-6 month/6 month/ and some 6-9 month clothing
  • Still taking medicine for his reflux and we're still thickening his bottles with rice cereal. 
  • VERY happy baby.. always smiling, even when sick! 
  • SO laid back! Everyone comments about how calm & happy he is :)
  • Still trying to sit up by himself. Still supports himself with his arms and leans over some. 
  • Started eating baby food! So far he's tried home made avocado & bananas. He's also had store bought baby food & has tried sweet potatoes, carrots, and apples! He LOVES to eat!! :) He tries to grab my hand to get the spoon to his mouth faster!
  • Usually takes 3 naps a day, 30-60 minutes in the morning, 1-2 hours around lunch time, and 30-60 minutes in the afternoon.
  • Loves when his big sissy reads to him :) 
Can't believe just a few more weeks and he will be HALF a YEAR old!

4 months

I completely missed doing a 3 month post for Evan :( And I'm about 2 weeks late on his 4 month post. Sigh! Oh well, better late than never, I suppose! Evan turned 4 months old on December 30th! I can not believe how fast he is growing up! Here's what he's up to now!

  • Weight: 14 lbs 9 oz
  • Height: 24.25 inches
  • Eating 4-6 oz every 3 hours during the day
  • Sleeps anywhere from 6-9 hours straight in his crib at night
  • Usually goes to bed around 7-7:30
  • Does really well sleeping when he is feeling well! Unfortunately, that hasn't been often lately :( 
  • In his 4 months of life, he's now had strep throat 3 times, croup, RSV, & 4 ear infections :( 
  • We go to the ENT this Wednesday to already see about getting ear tubes placed!

  • Still taking medicine for his reflux and we're still thickening his bottles with rice cereal.

  • Rolled belly to back for the first time on December 1st
  • Rolled back to belly for the first time on January 7th
  • I sat him on the floor sitting up by himself on January 4th & he didn't fall over! He isn't a pro at it yet, but can sit up & pretty well for a good minute or so on his own!! So shocking to me- he is doing things so much faster than Aubrey did.
  • In the 38th percentile for weight, but already weighs 1 oz more than Aubs did at 8 months!
  • Coos/talks all the time :)
  • Loves his jumperoo & piano play mat

Evan 1 month

Obviously, I haven't blogged in FOREVER. I am just writing this so that I can look back on it in the future. I need to do a blog about Aubs these days too. That girl is a mess! Here's all about little brother's first month though :)

  • Weight: 8 lbs 9 oz
  • Height: 19.75 inches
  • Eating 3-4 oz every 3-4 hours. 
  • Just moved to size 1 diapers (can still fit in some newborn diapers but we have a ton of 1's so we made the switch).
  • Wearing size Newborn clothing.
  • Having lots of trouble with reflux. 
  • Will have a swallow study done soon to check on all of that. 
  • Following in big sister's footsteps and has been to the doctor every week of his life :(
  • Besides the nasty ole reflux, doing great. He is a very good baby!
  • Still sleeps a ton. Has maybe 30-60 minutes of straight awake time once or twice a day.
  • Is much better with tummy time than Aubs was. He tries to roll over already & doesn't scream the second we lay him down, like a certain little someone did ;) 
  • Total tummy sleeper. Hates laying on his back. Favorite place to sleep right now is on Mommy's chest. 
Can't believe Evan is already a month old. Aubs is such an amazing big sister & Evan has fit right into our crazy little family :)
