5 months

Avery and Carson are 5 months old!
And they are busy, busy, busy! My attempt at taking their 5 month picture. They didn't want to sit still for the camera.
At 5 months they are:
-Rolling all over the place
-Smiling at just about anything
-Giving us an occasional giggle
-Loving sitting in the jumper and exersaucer. It's their favorite place to play. They love all the attached toys. It's so fun to watch them discover new toys!
-Still just eating rice cereal (I think we are going to try baby food this month).
-Love touching and grabbing our faces and have discovered how to pull mommy's hair.
-Able to sit up for a few seconds (while leaning foward on their hands) before falling over.
-They love to pull their paci out of their mouth and try to put it back in. It's really cute to watch them try and figure it out, but it's also a little frustrating in the middle of the night when they keep pulling their paci's out and screaming for us to put it back in!!
As I said earlier, Carson and Avery are very busy! My days of feeding them at the same time are over, they are just too wiggly now. Hopefully it won't be long till they are able to hold their own bottles.

Sleep continues to be our #1 battle these days. We are making a little bit of progress, but still have a long way to go before we have two babies that sleep through the night. Pray for us!!
Sweet, happy Avery!! She smiles at everything and is so playful. Avery has discovered her feet and her ears and loves to play with both. She is scooting foward and backwards on her belly. It won't be long before she is mobile. She is also getting a tooth, I think. For the past three weeks, she has had a hard, white spot on her bottom gum. I'm pretty sure it's a tooth, we'll see. Avery is still only eating 3-4oz at a time. She gets really distracted during her bottles and cereal. We have to give her a spoon to hold to keep her from grabbing the one we are feeding her with. Avery has such a sweet, open-mouthed smile. She melts my heart!!

My sweet boy! He wakes up every morning with a smile and is so happy to see us! Carson is a little more selective with who he gives his smiles to. And he is starting to have a little stranger-danger. We took them to Joyland (our church nursery) for the first time this past Sunday and Carson starting crying when we handed him over to the nursery worker. It was so sad!! Carson is good eater. He's eating 4-6oz and loves his cereal. He kicks his legs when he gets excited about something. Usually when he sees his bottle or between bites of cereal! So cute!
We finally had some nice, warm weather this past weekend. We took the babies out to play in the yard for a while. They love being outside.
Makes me excited for spring!


  1. They are SO cute:). Can't believe it's been 5 months....and that it's already time for you to have mobil babies!! Crazy! Oh...and praying for the sleep. Ugh...hang in there.

  3. Love the picture outside with the hats! Tooooo cute! You are so blessed and I am so happy for you two. Keep posting!

  4. Got your comment about next Christmas having one year olds... & I realized I will too! I can't even go there. Nuts. But....they are still babies then. What's even more nuts is 3. Sigh. It goes WAY too fast. But they sure are fun:)...most of the time. Ha!
