Westin is 5 months old!!!

Height: 25 in

Weight: 15 lbs. 13 oz (this was a few weeks ago, he is over 16 lbs now)

Sleeping Pattern: Takes two 2 hour naps during the day, sleeps from 8pm til 7am each night, no lie!!!

Eating Habits: Breastmilk - 4 or 5 milk feedings a day, he has a jar of fruit with cereal each morning and each evening vegetable and cereal. LOVES food!! 

Development: Grabs his toys on his play mat, sitting up with support, ROLLING OVER!! He's my rolly polly!!

Cuteness: He just figured out his big brothers and just how hilarious they can be! He thinks they are the best thing EVER! Melts this Momma's heart! He has the cutest belly laugh and he LOVES his Daddy!!

Talking: He is cooing and trying to talk all the time - especially to his Daddy. :)

Favorites: Mr. Fan and his Mr. Giraffe are his best friends! He also just started enjoying books. He LOVES books.

Firsts: Belly laugh and recognizing everyone in our family! First football game as well.

Concerns: He does this thing sometimes when he nurses, looks like a convulsion. I am talking to his doctor about this at his 6 month check up.

A Day in the Life: (not much has changed since month 4, I do add in some cereal usually around 6pm)Wakes up at 7am, smiling like a cutie pie. Change diaper, eats, plays for a little while. Around 8:30a he eats cereal and fruit, then naps for 2 hours. Eats again at 11a, plays a little bit more, goes down for afternoon nap around 1p. Wakes up at 3p starving, plays til 5p, then always wants to eat again and takes a small 30 minute cat nap while Mommy finishes up dinner. He eats cereal and veggies around 6pm then has a bath around 7p and is asleep before 8pm each night.

Westin Mommy and Daddy love you so much! You are the light of our lives and we are so proud of the big boy you are becoming. Thank you for completing our family.
