Brody by the Month! (5)

Brody turned 5 months old on August 30, 2015!

Brody, this is what you are currently doing:
  • You are still wearing 6 month clothing, but will move into 9 month soon! 
  • You moved up to size 3 diapers this month.
  • You weigh 16 lbs!
  • You eat every 2.5-3 hrs and eat about 5-6 oz. 
  • You tried oatmeal cereal this month, but didn't really like it and Mommy didn't notice a difference when you ate it. We decided to keep giving you your bottles and wait until you seemed more interested.
  • You are still sleeping through the night! I've tried to start putting you down earlier and you normally sleep from 8:30-9 p.m until normally 8 am or later! You love your sleep and will almost always out sleep your sister!
  • You were still swaddled every night, but you started to try and roll over, so Mommy knew she had to do something soon. I knew you wouldn't be able to stay in your swaddle for much longer. I saw online about Merlin's Magic Sleepsuit. I loved it because it has a light layer of cotton inside that kind of weighs you down, so your reflexes don't startle you awake. Your hands and feet are open though so if you did roll over, you would be fine. Mommy started putting you in that during your naps and at night and you loved it!
  • Thanks to your sleep suit, you now will take nice naps in your bed, ranging from 1-2.5 hours! 
  • Mommy rocked you to sleep in the past, but the doctor said I could start sleep training you. I was unsure doing it this early, because I didn't train your sister until she was much older. However, you have done great! The first night I took you out of your sleep sack and that did NOT work! I put you back in it and you sleep like a champ. The first night you cried off and on for about 30 minutes, but since then, I maybe have to go in a soothe you once, but you really just fuss for a minute and then go right to sleep! It has been so nice!
  • Your sister is still your best friend! You light up when she's around and she makes you smile and laugh all the time!
  • You are still squealing and talking up a storm this month! 
  • You are such a happy baby! As long as you are fed, have a clean diaper, and are around people, you're good to go!
  • You are very hot natured! You only sleep in a diaper and your sleep suit at night and for most of your naps.
  • You still love bath time!
  • You chew on your hand or your thumb all the time. You are beginning to teeth, but I haven't spotted a tooth yet! 
  • You still love riding in the car seat but don't fall asleep while driving like you did when you were little.
  • We started putting you in your Little Einstein's jumper and you LOVE it! You spit up every.single.time you get in it, but you are so happy! You jump and jump and jump! 
  • You rolled over for the first time on August 12th!
  • You get mad though because you can roll from your back to your stomach, but you haven't learned how to roll back onto your back.
  • You are still laid back and sweet. You'll pretty much go to anyone and smile away!
  • You still have very light brown/blonde hair and you have a lot more this month!
  • You still love your paci, but don't have to have it all the time.
  • This month you went with the family to Shreveport for Abigail Hay's wedding! You did so good!
  • Daddy went back to school, so we helped him in his classroom!
  • You also went with Mommy to take sissy to her swim and gymnastic lessons!
Oh sweet baby..you make Mommy smile every day and I love to smother you with kisses! You are my pride and joy Brody Mitchell Moss! :)
