My little chunk at 5 months......

Rosson turned 5 months last week......time is flying so quickly that I forgot to post anything about him! He's such a happy baby & is loved so much by all of us! Thank you God for giving him to us!
- He is quite the ball of energy. Constantly moving his arms, legs & whole body!
- He smiles ALL THE TIME....which is great for taking pictures!
-He also drools ALL THE TIME.....
- He will smile & talk to anyone who will talk sweet to him.
- He has rolled over once but I think it was an accident....
- H still loves his bottle but isn't too crazy about rice or oatmeal. I really think he could care less about it cause I'll put a bite in his mouth & he'll just smile at me & leave it in there till it runs out the sides of his mouth! Hopefully he'll catch on soon.
- He is not sleeping through the night yet.....most of the time he wakes up once & I'll rock him back to sleep quickly & then he'll wake another time to have a bottle. I really need him sleeping through the night....Jay started sleeping 10-12 hours a night at 12 weeks so I'm dying here!
- He is wearing size 3 diapers & size 6-9 months clothes, for the most part.
- He weighs 22 1/2 pounds & has officially grown out of his infant carrier so is now in the big boy reversible car seat......but not sitting up yet so that stinks for grocery shopping.
- He is starting to sit up but still has a ways to go.
- He is liking tummy time more now but still would really just not like to do it.

All smiles...

Big boy ready for some cereal....

Yes, he does have a diaper on!

Look at those thighs!

Happy 5 months kiddo!

Mother's Day......I know it's late.

We met my parents in Guthrie on Saturday night for dinner at a yummy Italian place called Roma's. It was yummy food & then we went across the street to a park to let the girls play for a bit before they headed back to Wichita. It was short & sweet but a good time! We made a mad dash out to Gavan's parents on Sunday for lunch but I didn't take any pics that day......I didn't even get a pic of myself with my own children on the actual day!

Mom & Dad with my kids.....love this pic!

Havin' fun on the slide!

The only one I got of the girls both sort of looking at the camera.....Macy was gone 1 second later!

Me & my sweet cheeks!

We made stepping stones for Grandma & Nana with their footprints on them...

I made my siblings take a group picture cause I don't have a recent one.....

Then I snapped one of my family while we were all there too!

Zoo day.....

We finally got to meet Vanessa & Cooper at the zoo last week after getting rained out the previous days we had planned to meet. It was the first time we went into the Children's Zoo but the water area was Jaylen's favorite. I had no idea it was there so we had no spare clothes or towels but I still let her soak herself & she had a blast. We were leaving right afterwards so it was fine. Giraffes & Flamingos were here favorite.......Cooper & Rosson just hung out in their strollers most of the time. It was lots of fun & gave Vanessa & I a chance to catch up! Cooper & Jaylen

Excited about the alligators!

Of course, she had to ride the carosel....

At the splash park.....

Exploring the riverbed....

Having fun....

Soaking wet!

Who's Who?!

I was looking through Jaylen's baby pictures the other night & thought she looked so much like Rosson in this one!
Same eyes, same nose, same hair & similar mouth.
I had to dig the 0-3 month sleeper out of the tub of clothes that he has already grown out of in order to re-create the picture! At 4 months, she still had growing room & at 4 1/2 months, he couldn't even straighten out his legs plus his sleeves were super short!

Jaylen on top at 4 months & Rosson on bottom at 4 1/2 months!

Jaylen's Sonshine School program

Check Spelling

Here is Jaylen's program from Sonshine School. She was really excited about getting to sing on the "risers in the big auditorium" & then getting candy afterwards from her teachers if she sang good! We figured she would either clam up & just sit there or really get into it. It was so fun to watch her up there! Enjoy!
