Tales from my life as a mom of 2 sons and 2 daughters

So Journey turned 5 months old yesterday. ( I know, 5 months! Can you believe it???) We took him today to the pediatrican (we had to go for something for River anyway) and got him weighed and measured so we'd have it for the baby books. When we weighed him he was fully clothed (cloth diaper and onesie) and he was 13 lbs 5 oz. He had been 13 lbs 6 oz at 4 months, so when the nurse practitioner came in I mentioned it to her and she wanted to reweigh him naked with her there to make sure it was accurate as possible. We weighed him again he is 12 lbs 10 oz. He has lost 12 oz in a 3 weeks (6/26 to today). That's not cool. So he has to go back on July 30th for a weight check and we'll go from there.

Other than his weight he is doing great.He is rolling now all the time. Whenever he gets put on his belly he goes over onto his back immediately. LOL He also has started scooting. We'll put him down on his activity mat and he'll scoot right off of it. LOL Crazy kid. He's back to getting up at night now. Wakes up once a night to nurse and wakes up 2 or 3 times to have the paci put back in his mouth (I will be happy when he learns how to get it back in his own mouth).
He loves his jumperoo and likes to sit in it and watch his brother run around like a loon. He has shown some interest in Baby Einstein videos so when I'm desperate to get something done I'll put him in the jumperoo and let him bounce and watch a video. (I know bad mommy).

So there ya have a little update on my 5 month old little man.. now here are some pictures.
