5 months old!

Our sweet boy turned 5 months old! He has gotten so smiley and has really filled out. This month was special because it was my last month of summer with Lane. I loved being home with him over the summer and had gotten used to him sleeping "late" in the mornings...too bad I have to go back to work! I will miss him sooo much. Anyway...back to his 5 month stats!


-Weighs about 15 pounds. I weighed him using our scale at home and he came out to around 15.
-Wears size 2 diapers and 3-6 month clothes. Can still fit in some 0-3 month clothes.
-Wears a size 1 shoe.

-Rolls everywhere! He can flip around really fast now and can end up on the other side of the room in no time!
-Can sit up with just a little help. (Sat up un-assisted for about 1 minute at 5 1/2 months)
-Likes to "walk" with help from someone.
-Learned how to rotate in his jumper to play with all the toys around him.
-Can scoot around on the floor on his belly but hasn't crawled yet.

-Eats 6 oz of formula every 4 hours with solid food in the morning between his first 2 feedings and in the evening between his last 2 feedings. Usually takes a bottle around 8:00 am, noon, 4:00 pm and again before bed.
-Uses medium flow nipples now.
-Started trying lots of baby foods and loves them! As of 5 1/2 months he has tried: avocado, apples, sweet potato, carrots, and pears. The sweet potatoes made him very gassy and he ended up waking up 2 nights in a row at 3 am crying. We discontinued them for the time being!
-Eats oatmeal and fruit in the morning and rice cereal and a veggie in the evening.
-Goes to bed around 8:30 and sleeps until around 7:00 or 8:00.

-Has really started to notice Scout and LOVES her! She will walk by and he will start grinning and laughing. Likes to "pet" her and so far Scout has been really good with him.
-Loves all people. He smiles BIG when anyone talks to him. Is not afraid of strangers yet! Especially likes men and people with glasses or hats on. haha! Laughs hard at Daddy, my principal Mr. Gray, Uncle Mitch, Paw, and Pops. Will laugh for women too, but laughs harder at men for some reason.
-Likes to grab things you don't want him to get, such as my iphone, a magazine I am reading, the tablecloth or anything on the table when trying to eat.
-Loves paper. Likes to play with envelopes, paper bags, magazines.

-Likes to suck his toes when he can get them into his mouth!
-Discovered his tongue and likes to stick it in and out, in and out. Also blows raspberries.
-Went to visit Paw and Nonna this month.
-Went up to school to work with mommy some in her classroom.
-Went shopping and out to eat a bunch.

-Still takes a pacifier.
-Still rolls over and sleeps on his tummy at night.
-Still likes to kick and screech and sling his arms up and down.
-Still loves his bath and now takes it in the big tub with just a foam mat.
-Still likes to be read to.
-Still loves to watch tv.
-Still has no teeth but still has the little white nubs he has had since he was 10 weeks old!
-Still has blue eyes and long eye lashes.
-Still has barely any hair-although, it is starting to thicken up a little and is still blonde.
-Still is a mama's boy.
-Still is as cute as ever.

I ♥ Faces - "Surprise!"

This picture showcases the biggest surprise of my life. (And my husband's!) Kyle had just left for a 10 day long trip to Yellowstone National Park when I found out I was expecting a baby! I took a couple of pregnancy tests just to be sure, but when the digital kind read "Pregnant" I knew for sure! I was soooo excited and couldn't wait to tell Kyle when he got home. I took this self portrait with my camera in my hand pointed at me. It took a couple of tries to get it just right, but I came up with this photograph. I had it printed with the words "Surprise! Love, Kyla and Baby L.C." (We had already picked out 2 names for a boy or a girl that both started with an L.) I kept my little secret for 10 days until he returned and was thrilled to give him a gift of this picture and a tiny Texas Longhorn onesie. He was surprised to say the least! Now we have our bundle of joy- Lane Austen Coots, who was born last March on the 5th.

He was the best surprise ever!
