Kendall is 5 Months Old!

Kendall Paige, you are five months old! 

    You weigh 15 pounds. 

    You are eating around every four hours. When you wake up, you nurse and then eat cereal. At first you were horrible about swallowing your cereal. It took you a week or so to figure things out. Now you do so much better. You eat about 4 tablespoons, 3 times a day. 

    You are still sleeping through the night. You usually go to bed between 8 and 8:30 at night and you get up around 7 or 7:30. In the mornings you lay in your bed and talk talk talk until Momma or Daddy comes to gets you. And you are all over your crib! Some mornings you are completely sideways at the top of the crib. We are going to video you going to sleep pretty soon. It’s too cute. You will jibber jabber for 5 minutes, find your 2 favorite sucking fingers, throw your other arm over your eyes, and then you are out! 

    You are adjusted to a four hour schedule now. You eat and stay up for 2 hours, and then you sleep for 2 hours. You typically have 2 good 2 hour naps. Then your last evening nap is around 45 minutes.

      You still love sucking on your hands. And the slobber, oh my, the slobber! Mom has been keeping a look out for some teethers but nothing yet. 

     You are wearing size two diapers. You are in size 9 to 12 month clothes. 

     This month, you have figured out how to work those hands. You especially like teething toys because they are a little easier on the ole gums! 

     You rolled from your tummy to back at 9 weeks. You can almost roll from your back to your tummy. You get your legs and lower half completely turned. Your shoulders are holding you back a little. 

   Unfortunately, you have decided you are not a fan of the car.  :(  Short trips are ok, but the longer the trip and the sleepier you are, Watch Out!

      You are one laid back chicka (unless left in the car too long)! We can pretty much take you anywhere and you go with the flow. You have made adjusting to life with a baby pretty simple. Watching you grow and learn is amazing. 

     Our prayer with you each night is that God will save you at an early age, and you will always have a desire to serve him. We love you, baby!

 Watch you grow!

This girl is even cuter in person than she is in all the blog pics. Love her! She really is super laid back. I wish my kids were that calm and quiet when I ate Mexican! ;) Happy 5 months of being parents!
