Five months old

Owen tuned 5 months old this weekend! He is such a cute, sweet, cuddly, perky, silly, fun little guy! He is still such a mama's boy but is definitely becoming more fond of his daddy. His unofficial weight is 15.5 lbs and he fits perfectly into size 3-6 month clothes.

Errand running has become MUCH easier now that Owen can face forward in the pouch/carrier. He is such a little flirt and smiles at everyone! He had his first high chair experience at lunch on St. Patty's day. We still haven't pulled ours out of storage yet!

Owen has now decided that he likes the pacifier. He likes the green Soothie as well as the NUK. Usually, we must hold it to his face to make him fall asleep.

The recent time change seemed to drastically effect Owen's internal clock and his nap times are totally out of whack! Although he still wakes up several times, he is finally getting a little better about sleeping at night. He is growing out of his swaddle blankets and aways gets his little arms out. He likes to be up around 6AM and babbles for a good half hour. This is his daddy's alarm clock :)

Owen has tried all kinds of solids (sweet potatoes, squash, pears, applesauce and bananas). He is showing a little more interest but isn't crazy about eating yet. He tries to hold his own bottle and guides it toward and away from is face. He still spits up constantly.

A week ago (Sun March 15th) Owen rolled over for the first time! He was on his tummy and rolled onto his back. He probably could have done it earlier, but doesn't spend a lot of time on the floor. I'm not in such a hurry for him to become mobile as I was with Emma :)


  1. love all the pics, owen is getting so big. love the one with the hat, so cute. emma's hair is getting so long, i notice that it's never in a bow or ponytail. does she not like to have her hair up? morgan refuses to put anything in her hair so hers is always down too :)

  2. MP - we lose bows and I don't have time to mess with it much anymore! That's the truth ;)

  3. He is so cute. I can't believe how fast he is growing.
