5 months old!! :)


I would have to say Declan's 4th month was the best by far! He did so many new things and his little personality it starting to shine though.

Today: January 25th, 2009...my baby is 5 months old today!
Weight: Nearing or over 15 lbs
Height: Estimating 26'' or so
Notable happenings:
-Starting the beginning of January, Declan now sleeps through the night. Woot woot!! He averages 10-12 hrs/night.
-He eats 7 oz/feeding now (up from 5 oz last month)
-Declan now rolls both ways and seems to enjoy his time on floor more these days. He also sleeps on his tummy now. Cute cute!
-Houston, we have a tooth!! Yes, 1 cute little pearly white.
-We're almost completely off the "ready to feed" Ali.mentum formula and down to just the powder. This month we'll try to transition off of that to a (cheaper) "regular" formula.
-Declan belly laughs now. Freakin' adorable.
-Big boy takes drastically less naps...usually a short one in the morning and an hour-ish one in the afternoon.
-This month, Declan realized our dogs existed! He now reaches out and grabs/pets them. It's the beginning of a beautiful friendship. ;)

Ashley, its sooo fun to read up on Declan's development and growth. He is sooooooooo CUTE!! And I cant wait to see him with the dogs in more pics :) Our Bailey is like our first child, so I am hoping our future child bonds with our mutt the way we did :)

Happy four months to your sweet, sweet boy. I just want to tell you how much I enjoy seeing your updates on him. It gives me such hope that parenthood (and happiness) is out there for me, one way or another! Congratulations to you for getting through the no-sleep zone!

I cannot wait for Ukulele to hit all of these milestones! Although - I don't want her to grow up too fast...

As for the Ali.mentum.... ugh. Sorry about that. I'm hoping to avoid that particular expense! If it's okay, I may e-mail you about why Declan is on it... I'm hoping Ukulele is not experiencing the same things he did in order to use that particular formula.
