Everett | Five Months

Age: 5 Months

Weight: According to the super official weigh me/weigh us process, the little mister is weighing in at 19 pounds even. NINETEEN. Obviously, the kid doesn't miss a meal.

Likes: Sissy, solid foods, eating in general

Dislikes: waiting too long to eat, napping

Milestones & Big Moments: We have started solids and the little mister has loved everything! Everett has tried peas, carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes and squash.  Technically, he has had mashed potatoes too on Thanksgiving, but he barely had a nibble so I don't really count it. 

Looking forward to: our first Christmas as a family of four :)

Everett is really starting to get fun. He is more active and chatty. He is really starting to babble and find his voice, especially when sissy is not around.  B and I joke that he will be a late talker since Nat barely lets him get a word in.

We still have the witching hour from about 5:15-6pm, depending on how quickly we get home and get our ish together with dinner. Some nights we do alright. Other nights I wish he liked to be worn more because I need my hands back. B and I are still very much in the divide and conquer phase, but hopefully as he gets bigger and more independent things will get easier. He is starting to enjoy being in the exersaucer and the bouncer which helps out immensely. Plus, he loves sitting and watching Natalie.

Speaking of his big sissy, I absolutely adore the relationship between Nat and Rhett.  That little girl loves her baby brother so fiercely and I hope that never changes.  Watching their relationship has been one of my biggest joys. Natalie proves again and again that she is a phenomenal big sister and Everett is so dang lucky to have her.

I have a feeling that he will be crawling sooner rather than later. He is known for dragging himself around on his tummy and changing the direction he is facing so it won't surprise me when he figures out how to get his legs in gear. Here's to hoping I am wrong though!  I am just so excited to watch this little peanut grow and change and learn. Being his (and his sissy's) mama is such a blessing.
