5 Months

What a week! My laptop battery actually died completely because I hadn't plugged it in or turned it on since Monday. I'm definitely looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow... until 7!

On to bigger news... Marshall turned 5 months old on Wednesday, 3/30. I can't believe that in another month he'll be half a year old!

Poop Happens!

So what has Marshall been up to this past month?

Well, he is pretty solid now with his head and shoulder control. He is still not a huge fan of tummy time, but he will now lay there for a few minutes before he starts to throw a fit.


But he still can't figure out how to roll from his back to his stomach. He is so close!


Marshall has turned into a DROOL MACHINE! He almost always has a steady stream of drool hanging out of his mouth. I think the only time he isn't drooling is when he's asleep.


Baby's 1st St. Patrick's Day! Everyone at day care loved his St. Patty's Day outfit.


We've discovered that our feet are awesome.


Most nights Marshall sleeps for a solid 8 - 9 hours, but there are still nights when he wakes up around 2 in the morning. Sometimes we can just put the pacifier back in his mouth and he'll go right back to sleep. Other times it takes an hour or 2 to get him back to sleep.


He is pretty much in 3 - 6 month clothes now. I've just started packing away his 3 month clothes. We're trying to get him to sit up on his own, but he usually face plants on the couch if we don't catch him. His is also a huge flirt and smiles at everyone. The girls at day care admitted they spoil him and hold him a lot because he's so good and adoreable.

Marshall is taking 2 - 3 naps per day and is eating 6oz of formula about 4 - 5 times per day. We're planning to try a little rice cereal this weekend so we'll see how that goes.

Happy 5 months, Marshall!

He's adorable! It's so fun to look back at all the changes they go through every month. I hope Elliot will be sleeping through the night by this time, but I'm not holding my breath lol!
