Another Week Down

He loves to look at himself on my camera.

Serious obsession with monster trucks.

Little Mohawk :)

We watched Asher on Tuesday while YaYa and Jamie were out dealing with stuff for Jamie's wedding. These boys wear me out!

Sullivan was just along for the ride

He's so handsome

How he falls asleep quite often while I'm getting Fisher put to bed

This Week...

Fishy ate yogurt on the counter

He was a big helper and pushed Brother in the swing

Sullivan loves the swing!

Bath time

We realized Fisher's shoes are too small :(

Sick baby napping

Quality time with Uncle Jacob

Sullivan is Five Months Old

* Sullivan weighs about 14 pounds.
* He wears size 3-6 month clothes, and he wears one-size cloth diapers (size 2 in disposables)
*He can roll over from back to front and front to back. It's funny to watch him roll and wiggle to get across the room.
*He is now reaching for things and holding them, so Fisher is enjoying rediscovering all of his old baby toys. He likes to tell me that he "need hold that" whenever Sullivan is playing with something.
* He loves to be in his swing, in the Bumbo, or when I wear him
*He has discovered his toes, and is always reaching for them and holding them.
*Ha can sit up unassisted for literally 1-2 seconds, and then he falls over. Does that even count as sitting??
* He nurses all the time-anywhere from every 30 minutes to every 3 hours; it just depends on how hungry he is :) When he takes a bottle, he'll drink 4-5 ounces.
* He's had some sleep regression. He'll sleep 3-4 hours between feedings at night, but a lot of time he wants to eat every 2 hours.
*He smiles and coos all the time-he is the happiest baby! He loves to laugh and giggle.
*His eyes are constantly changing color-they will be blue/gray, then hazel depending on lighting and his outfit.
*He is a chatterbox! He talks all of the time-his favorite time to have long conversations is around 630-7 in the morning. :/
* He has started developing more of a schedule all by himself. He has nap times (2-3 times a day) but he's awake a lot during the day.
*he loves to lay in our closet floor and play with my clothes while I'm getting ready.
* He is loved by his big brother, and the feeling is mutual. Sullivan lights up and just grins when Fisher is around. The sit across from each other at the dinner table, and Sullivan is constantly smiling and talking to Fisher. The first thing Fisher does in the morning is run to Sullivan and give him a hug and a kiss.
*We call Sullivan Brother or Brother Bear more often than we call him Sullivan. So much so, that Fisher tells me his name is "Brother John Nelson"
* Nicknames: Sully, Brother, Bug, Brother Bear

Chicago Trip

Well, it was an outside-of-Chicago trip. Nellie has family that lives outside of Chicago, including his mom, so we made the trip this past week so they could see the boys. We had a good time, and the boys were fairly good travelers.
We went to a park in Gama's neighborhood.

Visited with Daddy's uncles, aunts, and cousins

Saw the local wildlife

Played with chalk

Had a mini birthday celebration for Daddy

We had a wonderful visit and the boys had such a good time. Now, back to reality!
