Cole Isaac FIVE Months

Life is slowly returning to normal and we arent as busy. Gram got to come visit and we had a great time getting to visit with her and do a few fun things with her! We also celebrated Paisley's birthday which was fun and you enjoyed. From last month I feel like you have grown tremendously. You are just getting to be a big boy and I wish you would stop little man! Just slow down. Okay. My rant is over. Just stay little you hear?

Baby: Cole Isaac

Birthday: August 14, 2015

Age: Five Months

Weight: 14 lbs 4 oz

Height: 25 inches

Sleep: As if last month wasnt rough enough, this month has been worse! You are up sometimes every 45 minutes to an hour. We have tried transitioning to your crib and that hasnt played out so well. When you wake up and realize you arent next to me, you freak out till you are right next to me. Its weird because you take naps in your crib and do so well. You hate b   eing swaddled now, but if we dont swaddle you, your hands keep you up all night. I dont get what has happened. Anyone? You go down at 9:30/10 and then are normally up again at 1, then 3, then 4, then 5:30, then 7 and then 8:30. Do you see what you're doing to me bubs? Sleep. Just sleep child. You get up about 8:30/9 and then take a nap around 10:30/11. I try to keep that schedule and then you sleep anywhere between 1-2 hours and then will take an afternoon nap at 2:30 for about 2-3 hours.

Bedtime: 9:30

Favorite Toy: Trucks! You love playing with your trucks from Christmas as well as all the teething toys you got from Christmas! You also like you soft legos that Gram got you. You can hold onto them pretty well and chew on them

Clothes Size: 0/3 months, 3 months and 6 month sleepers

Diaper Size: Size 1

Milestones Reached: You are able to sit up by yourself for the most part till you get excited and you fall sideways. You are rolling some days from back to front. You started eating oatmeal!! You dont love oatmeal, but its something you will tolerate at times

*Eating Oatmeal!
*Sitting up
*Somewhat loving tummy time
*Falling off couch (You scooted faster than I could grab. It was a sad moment)
*Playing in the exersaucer
*Screaming in loud voices
*Tantrums (for real)
*Trip to the kids Museum
*You pant when you get mad or irritated
*Throwing hands up in the air when you are upset. Then you scream.
*Wont take a bottle
*Putting yourself to sleep in your crib! Sweet victory!

Best Mood: Still mornings :)

Best Moments: Having Gram come visit us! We had lots of fun! We also got to celebrate Pais birthday was a lot of fun! We've also ventured out of the house more and its a breath of fresh air

Worst Moments: So far its been you not sleeping! Or anything sleep related.

**Cole Isaac you can throw a fit like no ones business. I am not sure who taught you that or where you learned that, but by golly gosh the tantrums you throw have been utterly afraid for when you get older. You love to talk though, and I could spend every waking moment just listening to you talk and giggle. Its music to my ears. You feel so grown up this month. Not sure why that is, but you are grown up. Lets just face it. You really love your Grankin and light up when you see him. We had some great moments with our Gram while she was here. You have discovered that Paisley likes to take your toys and never share. We are working on that, but you get so mad when she takes something from you. I dont blame you though, I would be mad too. I pulled out the exersaucer and you have been all smiles about that thing. It will keep you busy for a bit, which really helps me! I have loved watching you over this last month. My boy is getting so big and I just cant believe its happening! You're a mommas boy and I really love that :) I love that you like to snuggle and to be held. Paisley wasnt like that and I am enjoying all of it. I love you my little boy so much!!

Cole Isaac FOUR Months

And its Christmas time!! Christmas with one kiddo is fun, but Christmas with two kiddos are super fun! Everything that we crammed into this busy holiday season has been some of my greatest memories. You wont remember your first Christmas bubba, but I will. It was really special!

Baby: Cole Isaac

Birthday: August 14, 2015

Age: Four Months

Weight: 12 lbs 8 oz

Height: 24 1/4 inches

Sleep: Well I knew our luck would run out and eventually you would stop sleeping so well and this was it! This was our month. You have started waking up 1-2 times at night, but go right back to sleep after being fed. You still go down around 9:30 and will wake about 2 am and then wake again usually around 6, then sleep till about 8:30/9. Same schedule as last month. Thank goodness that hasnt changed!

Bedtime: 9:30 pm

Favorite Toy: Considering you just got lots of new stuff for Christmas, your favorites have been the teething keys we gave you, the birdy that makes noise and vibrates from Aunt Aimee and the little spinning thing with toys on it from Mimi. You do really love alot of the teethers from Gram :)

Clothes: We finally had to put away the NB clothes and bust into the 3 month stuff. You're growing too fast!

Diaper Size: Size 2 (too many blowouts)

Milestones Reached: You've tackled the rolling from your belly to your back. This ensures that you dont have to have tummy time. You have figured it out that if we place you on your belly you just roll right over to your back which makes you so happy! Grabbing toes! You found those "giggies" and you never let them go! We are making headway on you sitting up. You are finding more of your balance. I consider this a milestone, because you have realized that you can take your paci out and eventually get it back into your mouth. Silly boy!

*Grabbing things and getting them into your mouth
*blowing bubbles
*Seeing Christmas Lights
*Finding your voice
*Throwing tantrums. You can throw a serious tantrum for such a little person. Its ridiculous!
*Scooting yourself places
*Sucking on toes
*Lifting head up off of stuff

Best Mood: Nothing tops mornings like how you wake up! You are finally becoming a happier and easier baby! Praise God Almighty for probiotics!!

Best Moments: Christmas!! Christmas and seeing you get so excited over the lights, the music, the tree and the presents has made me so giddy! Christmas is magical!

Worst Moment: You have started to hate being in your carseat :( You also got your first cold, and surprisingly, you weren't all that fussy. You just wanted to be held, which is totally ok by me!

Loves: You love everything that has to do with Christmas. You get so excited! You are finding that reading books is something you really enjoy. You love anything that has to do with music. You are your parents child for sure. You love that you have discovered your voice and that you can make noises, because you never stop making noises, sounds and yelling. Oh my!

Hate: The car seat and when you dont have constant attention. Boy you're rough!

**Cole Isaac. Here we are another month older! This has been such a fun and magical month. We have gotten to experience all the Christmas and Holiday stuff with you for the first time and you are just amazed by everything. You light up when you see us turn the lights on the Christmas tree. You love going over and seeing the neighbors Christmas decorations because the lights flash and play music. You have gotten to attend lots of parties, and you love having all those people around because you get all the attention. We celebrated Momma's birthday and you were such a good boy! You and Paisley have had lots of fun playing with all your new toys. I think you guys will be the best of buds! We got to spend New Years Eve in Orlando and we had lots of fun! We got to meet Mickey and Minnie and while you liked them I think you were so fascinated by their noses. You kept grabbing them. We also went to ICE in Orlando and you slept the entire time. We had you bundled in four layers or blankets. You never even made a peep while the rest of us all froze. Cant wait till next year and you can experience it with us!
