today I am

happy 5 month old!
5 months old.  I know that this post is a month late but I like being able to look back on them and see what the boys were doing at the time so bear with me while I catch up.

Height- I am not sure since I didn’t actually measure him

Weight- 10lbs 4oz (on December 12) and 11lbs 7oz (on December 19, one week later)

Teeth- none yet

Things of Note

-Luc is moving around quite a bit now. He can roll over both ways although he isn’t in the phase where he rolls to get what he wants just yet. He is pushing up and looking around frequently and always wants to know what is going on with his brothers.

-He gave his first true laugh the day he turned 5 months old. It was a small one but a laugh none the less. He is still super smiley but he apparently saves the laughs until things are super funny.

-Sleep is sort of a sore subject (for me at least) since we aren’t getting much of it. He was doing really well and sleeping almost through the night (at least as far as a baby is concerned) but now that we have had to wake him up for feedings he has gotten used to being up and is waking 2-3 times a night. It has been hard going back from having slept more to this but I keep hoping that after he continues to gain weight that we will be on the right track and he won’t be up as much.

-Weight. His weight has gone up but we are still working on figuring out a long term plan that will work for all of us. He is such a happy little boy it has made it hard to first decide that there was a problem and then to figure out what to do about it. However, thing are improving and the doctors are pleased with the gains that he has made.

-Sitting. Luc has just recently decided that sitting is fun. He still has to sit with assistance; however, he enjoys being able to look around and check out what is going on around him. His other current favorite position is on his back since he doesn’t topple over and can still see everything that is going on around him.


-His brothers. He gives the biggest smiles for Charlie and Jay and I think they are the two that will eventually be able to get him to full on belly laugh. Their relationship with each other is really sweet to watch and I love how much they adore each other.

-Being sung to regardless of if you can sing or not. Both Jay and I aren’t really gifted in carrying a tune; however, sweet Luc doesn’t seem to mind. He is happy with whomever will sing to him and it can usually cure his fussiness if he is getting upset.

-Books. Luc has really taken to looking at the pictures in books and he loves listing to stories; whether he is being directly read to or if he is just listening along when we read to his brothers.

-Piper and Bella. Just recently Luc has taken notice of the animals around the house. He will follow them while they walk through the room and he usually gives them a smile when he sees them.


-To be honest there isn’t much that Luc doesn’t like… Really the only thing that comes to mind is being hungry. When he gets tot the “feed me now” phase (which is usually some time in the middle of the night) there is really nothing that will calm him aside from food. But really other than that he is pretty much happy all of the time.
