5 Months ♥

This month has gone by quickly! I cannot believe the boys are already 5 months?!?! Where has the time gone?

Drake ~ 16 lbs 3 oz
Hunter ~ 15 lbs 2 oz

Going back to work has been a major transition. Being gone 9 to 10 hours a day is incredibly difficult. They typically take an hour afternoon nap when I get home. So, I see them for 3 to 4 hours, then it is bedtime. I have all the bottles prepared with water in them, and 2 travel formula cases for my mom to use each day. She still watches the boys at my house. It is such a blessing. I have taken them to her, Sandy, and Meme this month! WOW! It is tough getting out the door by 7 AM with 2 babies! Made me realize even more how lucky I am with my mom!

They are in size 3 months clothing.

Both boys wear size 2 Pampers.

We prefer Pampers diapers and Huggies wipes. I took back all the Diaper shower diapers and exchanged them for Pampers. The people at Wal Mart had to think I was crazy! It was an entire basket overflowing! $200 worth of diapers! We have yet to buy diapers or wipes for the boys! It has been so nice! Thank you to everyone who bought us diapers!
We had to move the straps in the carseat up because they needed to be above their shoulders.

We had to start strapping them into the swing! They were trying to escape ;)

They eat cereal with a spoon every morning. They eat Rice Cereal with Apples. I mix in Bananas to make it taste better! Hunter seems to do better than Drake.

Their hair has really grown and still stands straight up.

They still love their swings, and take their afternoon nap in them!

Hunter laughed for the first time! It was precious! The reason he laughed was hilarious! I said I was going to get Drake's baby acne, and Hunter thought it was funny!

Drake has small giggles, but has not had a laugh yet!

Drake can turn himself in the opposite direction you lay him. He scoots all the time now. He will move until he gets where he wants to be! He wraps the blanket around himself often.

They eat 6 to 8 ounces, only 4 to 5 bottles a day.

They both get loud, but Drake tends to be more expressive and louder. Too much mommy in him ;)

Drake likes to have the blanket up by his face when he goes to sleep. I think he will be like his Aunt Lacey and  rub a blanket on his face to fall asleep.

Hunter has liked to be rocked to sleep for naps lately. It is sweet and I love the time with him when I get home.

They like their jumperoo, but can barely touch the ground! I know the next month or two they will discover how fun it is!

They love to lay on the floor to talk and play. Hunter's favorite toy is a crinkly blue elephant! I have not noticed Drake favoring a certain one yet.

They love to be held facing out so they can see what is going on!

Bath time is becoming more difficult! Drake is such a wiggle worm he tries to scoot off the baby bath. He has kicked Hunter in the head a couple times!

They still sleep 10 to 12 hours at night. Bedtime is whichever feed falls between 8, 9, or 10! They wake up at different times in the morning, so their first feed of the day starts their schedule!

I was laying on the couch with both boys on my chest. They were interacting with each other and it was the most amazing thing I have ever seen in my entire life. They looked at each other and touched nose to nose! Hunter was giving kisses! It was one of the first times I saw Hunter very interested in Drake!

Hunter LOVES to give kisses! You get anywhere near his mouth, he is giving you a kiss :)
