We took Wills to Northpark mall on December 17th to meet Santa. We had to wait a little over half an hour so by the time we got to see Santa, Wills was kind of done. There were no tears though, so we consider it a win!

Five Months

So our little guy has turned 5 months old and he is just amazing. He is such a good baby and is so laid back. He definitely gets that from Charles. He is usually only upset when he is hungry. I think he gets that from me!

I am so happy to report that we turned a corner on the napping. Wills now consistently takes 3 naps a day. One for about an hour in the morning, a one to two hour nap in the afternoon and a little cat nap in the evening. He is also still sleeping from 8:30 to 7:30. It is so nice having a child that apparently likes to sleep as much as his parents do!

We are still drooling like crazy. We went shopping the other day and I was wearing him in the moby. I stood still for a few minutes and I swear he left a puddle of drool on the floor! His new favorite toys right now are his own hands and feet. He loves to put his entire hand in his mouth and is trying so hard to get one of his feet in there too. He hasn't quite accomplished that yet. 

Five Month Stats:
Weight: 16 lbs 
Length: He is to hard to measure ourselves. We go to the doctor next month, so we will have an official measurement then.
Clothing Size: 6 months fit perfectly, still squeezing into some 3 month tops, but the 3 month pants are long gone
Nicknames: Buddy, Buster, pumpkin 
Must haves: Sophie the giraffe, wooden blocks, his hands and feet
November 29 First night without the swaddle
December 10 First time with a babysitter other than Grammy (it was Miss Michelle)
December 21 First arts and craft project
December 24 First Christmas Eve

Fun with Wills

This is how much we are drooling these days. This happened in about 2 hours!

Ready for Christmas. Christmas pj's, Santa bib, and you can't see it, but Rudolph diaper too!

Some giggles

Bedtime Routine

We started a bedtime routine with Wills when he was around 8 weeks old. It has pretty much stayed the same since then. The only change is that instead of swaddling, he now uses his sleepsack.

We start the routine at 7:30 with bath time. He loves the bath!

We then coat him down with lotion, which he doesn't like so much. 

He then gets a triple stuffed diaper and pjs.

Now it is time to eat!

And a bedtime story (the llama books are favorites for mommy and daddy).

Keeping warm in the sleep sack.

(His cheeks are extra shiny from the aquaphor)

He is usually in his crib by 8:15. He then lays there and chats for a little bit, but is usually asleep by 8:30. Wills' bedtime routine is something we are still doing together as a family, which I really enjoy!
