FIVE. MONTHS. OLD!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last week, we woke up and had a five month old in the house. Unreal.
This past month was a total blur.
I went back to work full-time. Jase started school during the day. And we spent every moment in between soaking up as many snuggles as possible. He is seriously the best little bunny we could have ever dreamt of.
Jereme says it all the time, but Jason is really coming into his little personality. He’s such an easy going, adorable little lovebug. So full of smiles, laughter, and cute expressions. I can’t get enough.
This last month was full of LOTS of new things for us all…here are our updates:
…At our 4-month checkup, Jase weighed 18lbs. and was in the 86th percentile for both height and weight. No shocker there.
…We tried our very first foods!!! Oatmeal cereal was a total bust. Next up, we gave homemade baby food a go and whipped up sweet potatoes in our baby brezza. Sweet potaters were a HUGE hit! We have since fed Jase sweet potatoes a handful of times and he really seems to love them. We gave green beans a whirl last week. Those are definitely a no-go for Jase. Lol. He was like “nope. not happening.” I think we may have a few sweet potato + you-name-the-veggie combo purees in our future. ;)))
…We also started school/daycare this month. Jase is the youngest babe in his infant class of six at The Village School and has adjusted pretty darn well after his first few weeks (although, let’s be real, his naps are the pits while at school and he comes home SUPER exhausted most days).
…We also got our very first cold. Yuck. Probably a result of ^^that^^.
…Jase still has only the two teeth. Although we really thought he was cutting two more on the bottom (I’m sure they will bust through any day now).
…Jase, you are a smiling + laughing machine. (All the ladies at school love that you smile all day long and rarely, if ever, cry.)
…Our cute little bunny LOVES making the craziest faces! He is so full of personality it is just adorable!
…We’ve been to the beach twice this month, and are starting to make that our little weekend tradition. Jason and I really love getting out there early (while we still have it all to our selves) and lounging on the sand for an hour or two.
…We clearly need to invest in a jumparoo because Jase treats our (more stationary) exersaucer likes it’s his personal trampoline. It is the most hilarious thing ever.
…You have become SO aware of the world around you and we can tell how much you are soaking in all the time. It is amazing to watch every day.
…Sleeping through the night is right around the corner for us since Jase is now gracing us with irregular 12-hour stretches during the night. He rocks about 3 out of a 7-day week with the full night sleeps, and the other half, with one feeding throughout the night.
…And, you little baby, want to crawl SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO darn bad. You are so so close…getting up on your knees and rocking that tushy back and forth. I know we are going to have our hands full once you are legit mobile. ;)))
We managed a little impromptu photo shoot this morning at the beach. Here are a few favorites…
“Putting out the vibes…” ;)))
