Devin's Data: FIVE MONTHS

Oh my goodness.
I LOVE this outfit!!!!!!!

Weight: he weighed 15 pounds 12 ounces on Nov. 3rd

Height: (I need to measure him. He is asleep. I will update this later.)

Clothing Size: 0-3. I think he will be outgrowing it sometime soonish.

Diaper Size: 2

Milestones: sits by himself for short periods of time, reaches for everything and drags it to him if he can reach, has some separation anxiety, jabbers in multi-syllables

Eating: He nurses about every 4 hours. Then has breakfast and dinner of solid foods. When eating solids, he eats about 7-8 T. of pureed food for each meal. Pumpkin is his favorite food so far and he hates avocados.

Sleeping: Normally goes to bed around 9 now and then sleeps until 8. He takes about 3-4 naps during the day (depends upon how long the nap is).

Communication: jabbers constantly (especially at Mommy), recognizes the sign (ASL) for milk, I understand all of his different cries—I never thought I would be able to tell the difference but I know.

Likes: jumping, Elmo (he talks to Elmo when Sesame Street is on—the rest of the animals/ people he just watches), cuddling, when Daddy comes home from work—he grins and grins!, swinging, playing with his toes, reaching for the table cloth

Dislikes: having his nose suctioned, wiped or having saline drops (basically, just don’t touch his nose!). He hates it when he feels ignored and people are not paying attention to him. Getting bored or scared. Having his fingernails trimmed.

Nicknames: Mr. Devin, Baby Bunny

Most Memorable Moment(s): being a skeleton family for Halloween, swinging in the park for the first time

Hardest Part: for Lisa—this is a 24/7 job with no breaks, weekends or holidays. It is really hard when he is just crying for no reason and can’t tell us what is wrong. But I wouldn't trade this for anything! If Devin was writing this, he would say the hardest part is when he can't reach a toy. He wants to crawl but doesn't know how and gets grumpy when he can't reach.

Lisa's Favorite Part: cuddling with him and seeing how happy he is. His smile is contagious!!

Casey's Favorite Part: interacting with Devin and singing to him
