Cameron: Six Months.

What??? Half a year?
Wahhhhhhhh, not yet!
We can't believe our baby is half way to being a one year old.

Stats: 15 lb 12 oz (20%) weight , 26 in (25%) height, and 17 in (50%) head circumference.
Size 2 diapers (size 3 at night), 3-6 and 6 months clothes.

Firsts: First time swimming, first time to VBS, first Baron's baseball game, first time sitting in a restaurant highchair and riding in a shopping cart, first time meeting cousins Allen and Anna, first time using a sippy cup!

Milestones: You have truly amazed us this month- you've gone from a little helpless baby to a big boy who knows what he wants and can just about get it too. You have mastered the skill of sitting up. I still look at you sitting up and just can't believe it! When did you get so old? You put your paci back in with no problem and you love to talk and make new sounds. You crack us up when you blow and make your lips vibrate together making a sweet sound. You are basically the smiliest baby I know! No matter your mood, if we work hard enough we can get a smile out of you. You now realize when I'm in the room and also when I leave the room! I love that you now light up for me and daddy to hold you! :)

Food & Sleep: Sleep wise we are pretty much doing the same thing as last month. You are waking up atleast 2 times a night to eat. Ready for you to figure out what you were doing from month 1-4 again! :) We are adventuring into the fun world of trying all sorts of yummy puree's! This month you have tried sweet potato, green peas, bananas, and apple sauce. You are not a fan of the peas and bananas so far! You still nurse around every 3 hours- you let me know when you are ready! 

Our days: Still not on a consistent schedule. You typically wake up earlier now, around 7:30 and then may stay up till 10 and then take a morning nap. After that it just depends on you! Sometimes you want to nap often and other times hardly at all. You're always keeping us on our toes!

Favorites: Mommy and daddy love to see you sit up like a big boy!

Nicknames: Cam, CamMan, Booboo

We love you more and more every day baby boy. You continue to amaze us with how quickly you are growing and learning!

Cameron: Five Months.

{On my actual 5 months birthday I was in Huntsville at Gigi and Pappy's house and was happy to celebrate with Caroline my big cousin turning 11 months the same day!!}

{Sometimes I make faces that make mommy giggle!}

{And sometimes we have out-takes of when I fall over and lick my basketball!}

Stats: No official stats this month. Although we did go in for a weight check early May. He only gained a few ounces from his four month appointment, then weighing 13 lbs and 1 oz. We go for another weight check next week. I'm pretty sure mister man has gained a few pounds :)
Size 2 diapers, 3-6 months clothes.

Firsts: First picnic at church, first wedding shower {Landon and Lindsey's}, Dedication Sunday at church, first time strawberry picking, first Auburn baseball game, first time to Wetumpka and meeting your great-great-grandfather {on his 95th birthday!}, first time in Southside nursery, first time to mommy's Huntsville favorite- Surin!

Milestones: Mister independent. You do so well playing in your exersaucer, on your playmat, and sitting in your boppy/bumbo. You can now {most of the time} put your paci in your mouth by yourself! When you're in the mood you are a giggle monster and chatter box!

Food & Sleep: This month has been hard in this area. As far as eating goes, I had an issue with my milk supply earlier this month and that proved for a lot of difficulty. I ended up feeding you, you getting upset and finishing with a bottle. Since your weight check we have added rice cereal twice a day. You are a great eater and haven't refused any. {Looking forward to starting some fruits and veggies in June} You eat every three hours still! Sleep- Oh the sleep. Sleep this month has been a disaster at night. You are still great during the day- taking plenty of naps and going down easily! Now back to nighttime. You now wake up two to three times EVERY night. I'm not sure how to work on this so we are just taking it night by night. It makes for one sleepy mommy & daddy though :)

Our days: We are on NO schedule at all. We just get done what we have to get done and go where we have to go. I've appreciated so much how you are so chill and go with the flow! You are great in the evening during playtime with daddy!

Favorites: Mommy & daddy loves to see you sit up like a big boy!
