Sweet LondyBear, Cheeto, and LancyPoo,
Thank you for teaching me things I never thought I needed to know, filling a void I never knew existed, and growing in my heart a love I never imagined I could have. I know this is only the beginning, but I will never be the same because of you and want you to know how deep our love is for each of you in your special unique way. I can’t say I don’t still ask Him “why me?” during the rough times, but God definitely knew what he was doing when he gave us you, and there isn’t an hour that passes without him reminding me why. Please don’t ever forget that.
Love you more than words,
5 month Stats
- Londyn 15 lbs // 25 in.
-Layton 16 lbs // 25 ½ in
- Lance 17 lbs // 26 in
Eating: started solids a few weeks ago! They are really good eaters, and actually enjoy mealtime in their highchairs! They eat rice cereal/oatmeal along with a fruit or veggie twice a day, along with about 5 formula bottles throughout. Some of their fave new foods are avocados, peaches, squash, and applesauce! Londy is by far the messiest eater, but she has so much fun with it that it’s hard to get mad at her hehe!
Bedtime/ Awake: Still sleeping through the night for the most part, but usually 2 get up during the night and just need a diaper change or tiny bottle. Usually in bed around 9 (Londyn stays up past then and gets a bit hyper ha!), wake up between 5:30 and 6ish.
Clothes: a few 3-6 months, mostly 6-9. Since they are too old to swaddle now, we’re loving the Halo sleep sacks that go over pjs as a wearable, safe blanket.
-anything that makes music or talks to them
- bouncing in the exersaucer
-laughing at mommy & daddy
- going on walks and being outside
- bathtime and mealtime
-spending time at both grandparents’ houses, and playing with lots of family
-chewing on teethers and grabbing anything their tiny hands can hold
-Londyn: very content on her own and more independent than brothers. Playful, Determined, strong-willed, wiggles/rolls all over, loves to read, sweetly giggle, and watch talking toys
Lance: more shy and bashful than the others, gentle and quieter, the most advanced with hand/eye coordination/ core strength/ etc. Loves to be held and cuddled
***it’s so neat to see them interacting more and more….they love to touch each other, grab for the other, etc. and seem to even feel sorry and worry about the others if they are upset or doing something different than them, etc.
