5 Months!!

Well.....better late than never! Our little peanut is 5 months old (and two weeks). It truly does go by SO FAST!

He is such a little joy! He smiles all the time....except I can't seem to capture any. When I turn the camera on, he just stops and stares.... haha! :) It's hilarious! I PROMISE that he smiles all the time...just not on here!
Not exactly sure what Asa is doing in this picture, but I told Joseph to duck out of the way so I could take a picture of Asa.  He did good.

 Just ignore the red cheeks.... They are very chapped and irritated! And...he is so sensitive to everything!! :( 

Do you see all those rolls?!?!  I love seeing them!
At 5 months, Asa is:
-in size 2 diapers
-for the most part, wearing 3-6 month clothes- with a few 0-3 here and there.
-taking 5-6 oz. bottles every 4 hrs. except obviously at night.  He takes about 7oz. before bed.
-Goes to bed at 8:30 p.m. and sleep until about 7:30 a.m.
-Takes 2 good naps, and maybe a cat nap here and there (he is trying to let go of his hour nap late afternoon, so he's struggling to stay awake some during the day, but we are pretty much down to just the two naps.)
-Tried cereal the first time the other day and did great.  We have done it a few times since.
-LOVES LOVES to watch anything on tv.  We try to keep it pretty clean or educational :) einstein, veggie tales, maybe a little golf here and there.
-Smiles and giggles all day!  I love it when I go grab him in the morning and he looks up at me and gives me the biggest smile.  Melt my heart!
-He is trying VERY hard to roll over and sit up.  He is close to rolling over, and will do it with some help.  I still have to remember that he will be about 2 months behind, so he is actually doing very well considering.

Here are some things that Asa has been doing:

The picture below is him in therapy doing some tummy time and working on rolling over.

Went to church for the first time today! Finally!!

 \Just being a boy!

His favorite....watching baby einstein in his mommy's bed!

He is such a precious little boy and has the sweetest personality.  (a little stubborn at times...but so sweet!)  I feel so blessed to have him!


  1. He is such a blessing! I love getting to see him every week! :)

  2. He is a cutie pie!!!! Love that 'argyle' (is that how you spell that?) adorable. Just come hang out with my boys and Asa will feel right at home...none of them have ever sat up before 8 months or so...and I don't even have the good excuse that they were early!! :) Just lazy i guess! :)
