5 Month Baby Update

 This is what Nathaniel actually does with the lambs ;) 

I’ve been working on this for days, but every time I sit down to start writing this Nathaniel wants me to pick him up. I think this 5-month period is my favorite so far. Although I’m sure I’ll say that about every month. Nathaniel is now 27 inches and 19lbs. He’s getting super heavy so my arms are constantly tired. I feel like I’m getting an all day arm workout ;) I also finally started working out again. I’m almost back to my pre-baby weight and haven’t worked out at all until now.


Likes: - Standing up, but since he can’t do it on his own, it means I have to be constantly holding him up (quite the arm workout)

- Listening to music, R&B is his favorite; he loves the soundtrack of Empire
- Pulling on hair, weather it’s my hair or our dog’s, he sure does not discriminate
- Babbling, he’s trying so hard to talk, it’s adorable
- Napping in his car seat. He literally falls asleep the minute I put him in. Definitely makes shopping easier
- Sitting at the table and eating with us
-Eating his fingers, he will suck on his, and if he can reach mine he’ll stick those in his mouth also, but still not a fan of the pacifier

Dislikes:
- Sitting up and falling over
- Wearing socks or shoes. He always pulls them off or kicks them off.
- Clothing that is too tight; hence I’ve been dressing him in 24-month pj’s, which seems crazy since he’s only 5 months.
- I started solids at 4 months and he still hasn’t been a huge fan. Whenever I feed him he spits most of it out.

I’m still breastfeeding but I’ve stopped pumping. I plan to stop breastfeeding at the 6-month mark, so I’m slowly weaning. I try giving him at least a bottle of formula a day. This one is his favorite so far! 

New Products I’ve been loving
Walker - My little one lovesss this walker. He’s not quite able to walk forward just backwards
Steamer/Blender - I love this baby food maker
Spoons - These spoons are great! They change color if food is too hot.
Play Mat -I use this play mat on the daily. Nathaniel loves all the colors. It keeps him amused for at least 20 minutes at a time
Pj's - I love these they're so easy to take off and put on and I just size up for a better fit. (They also carry them at Costco) I used to get the one's from carter's but found that after 9 months, the arms and legs were wayyy too tight.

 Nathaniel loves shopping at Chanel with me, so many colors
 I have serious lash envy, I wish my lashes were this long
 Big chair, small human
 Nathaniel wants to play with Kai so badly, but Kai is still scared of Nathaniel

  2. Not combining shielding abilities. An important thing that I have learned from this WoW PvE guide, is that as a DPS, absorbing the chances of mobs to hit you is important. Most mobs have AoE skills and it's a good idea to help your healers by popping up your protecting skill-sets.

  6. These baby bags are customised in their making to make them fit for babies of age between 6 months to 36 months. Camps are planned mostly during spring season. So it is quite obvious that the camping area is going to be a bit warmer.

  8. Lightweight and umbrella strollers are appropriate for parents who travel around frequently because they are easy to stow away. Finally, double and triple strollers are made for parents who need to transport two or three young children in one stroller.

  11. Truly, this article is really one of the very best in the history of articles. I am a antique ’Article’ collector and I sometimes read some new articles if I find them interesting. And I found this one pretty fascinating and it should go into my collection. Very good work!
