Gunnar is 5 Months!

Happy Five Month Birthday, Baby Gunnar!
Sweet potatoes! Still thinking about if you like them or not.

Your first pair of shoes! Cita bought them this weekend at Lil' Footprints. They are little brown boy Pediped sandals and fit perfectly on your chubby little feet. I'm in love with them! Oh sooooo cute, they are!

Happy 5 Month Birthday, baby Gunnar! Has it really been five months? Yes, sir, it has because mommy hasn't slept since Halloween. But I still love my boy, cat-napper and all!

Gunnar's Stats at Five Months..........

Weight: 16 lbs, 12 oz.

Clothes: 6-9 mo. or 6-12 mo. or 9 mo.

Diapers: Size 3

Eyes: Still blue-mom is crossing her fingers that they are going to stay!!!

Hair: Blonde chick fuzz all over but people say you are bald. You aren't-it's just really light fuzz!

Shoe: Size 1

Milk: 4-5 oz. per time

Food: Pears in the morning and sweet potatoes at night so far.

Naps: Few and far between. Usually you take a snooze about 9:30, noonish, and around 3. Sadly, they are usually about 20 or less. How can you only sleep an hour during the day???

Night: You usually get super fussy around 7pm and we give you a bath and rock you to sleep with a bottle. You wake up at night around midnight, three, and 6:30. You are always up cooing and talking and smiling when Slade wakes up at 7 to get ready for school! Mommy doesn't get many breaks. You start out in your swing and move to the Nap Nanny at midnight.

Love: Your favorite toys are the flower toy that lights up and plays music and the turtle that sits in your carseat. You like toys that play music and have colorful lights. You love crinkling paper and grabbing plastic sacks. You are starting to pull my hair and Finley's hair. You like to wiggle your feet and move all the time. You like to be outside, mostly watching Slade play basketball in the drive way. You are big at drooling-are you getting teeth I wonder? You enjoy your baths every night, so I hope you will love to swim like your siblings.

Dislike: Pacifiers, dirty diapers, showers-they scare you-baths are better, loud noises, rice cereal-yuck!, waiting for anything, naps, riding in the carseat for long periods, sitting by yourself at any point-you have to be entertained at all times!

Oh, sweet Gunnar! What would we do without your precious face?!? I love your chubby legs and feet so much! I love your dimpled smile! You were such a wonderful surprise for our family! Slade and Finley love you to pieces. We are so blessed!
