Jack- 5 Months

Weight and Height- 

Jack now weighs 14.4 and is 24 inches long!  He's still wearing lots of 0-3 month clothes. Most of the rompers I bought him are 6 months and he is swimming in them. 

4 months shots were terrible. 

Jack continues to go back to his group of specialists. We continue his nebulizer and percussion therapies 2 times a day.  He will be getting some blood work and chest x-rays in the next few months. At his last appointment his specialist used the words "fantastic"

Jack is a great sleeper. He always gets up 1-2 feedings a night. 

Jack barely cries.He is such a happy little boy. We had our first screaming car ride last week. It was so sad. He SCREAMED his bloody head off. I sat in the back with him and replayed Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood over and over for the 40 minute car ride! 

I think he may be a strawberry blonde.

Our 1st Mother's Day 

Loves his sunglasses


Jack is wearing 3 months. He also fits in 0-3. The rompers I bought for the summer are all 6 months. They are all so big!

Feedings- Jack is nursing whenever he is with me. I pump all day at work. He takes 6-8 oz bottles every 3 hours. 

We have one down. Most days start at 5am. We begin with this treatments and follow that up with a feeding. Our nights usually contain another treatment and feedings. We all go to bed around 11pm. 


He is so incredibly happy and friendly. Jack reacts to people he is familiar with and its usually a huge smile. He is now interested in his cousins and smiles at them when they play. 

Pool- He LOVES being in the water. 
Bath time is a favorite too. 
Music- We all love the Frozen station on I tunes Radio. He still like when I sing to him. 
Family- He loves his grandmas and grandpas. He spends each day with older cousins, 1 and 4 years old. 
Bouncy seat- We got everything plus more at our shower but this little guy loves this $3 find from a yard sale. We burn out batteries like nobody's business.
MamaRoo- Its so soothing for him.
Cartoons especially Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and Dinosaur Train

Being at work is tough.I still hate being away from my little man but I like the routine of getting out of the house. I'm exhausted pretty much all of the time but its a good tired. I really want to start losing some weight. I'm huge and its so disappointing. I really hate to look at myself. I just don't want to work out either. I'd rather spend my time with Jack instead!

Jack has rolled over. His legs are very strong and he enjoys standing. He is very chatty. He smiles and laughs too. He is sitting up well on his own. He is teething so bad. It's the worst. Some days he just screams for no reason! Jack has tried rice cereal although he is mainly on breast milk until at least 6 months.  Jack went in the pool or the 1st time. He also went to his 1st strawberry patch.
