Since he was born he's over all been a good baby but it for sure comes in waves. He'll be good and semi predictable for 2-3 weeks and then he'll be totally off for 1-2 weeks. I've always said the only thing consistent about Milam is that he isn't consistent. He is sweet and finally seems to be coming out of it. Most of January and some of February was filled with him teething, trying to crawl, and switching from 3 naps to 2. All of that combined was a bit much for him but he seems to have settled into a new routine so I'm happy about that. Now that he can sit and crawl he seems to be a lot happier. You can't help but smile while playing peek-a-boo or if I'm singing "If you're happy and you know it". He's loved those two since day one.
Georgia was more content on her own. You very much like eye contact and being a part of the action. You don't want to be left out. I've slowly gotten you used to it though and now you're doing really well. You will sit and play with your toys and it is really cute to watch.
We cut your swaddle out totally before you turned 5 months old. It took about two nights for you to get fully used to it but all in all you transitioned really well. Like I said above you'll give us a few weeks of good naps and then you won't. Now that you have adjusted to two naps a day you're doing really well. You do 2 one hour and 45 minute naps and then sleep 12-13 hours at night. You usually wake up after 11 hours and talk to yourself for about 15 minutes and then go back to sleep. I have no idea why you do this. You sleep in a sleep sack on your back and tummy.
You are doing great and have loved everything you've eaten. You wake up and have a bottle and then an hour later eat your breakfast. After your nap you get another bottle and then an hour and 30 minutes later you eat lunch. After your second nap you get another bottle. You usually eat dinner around 5:00 and get another bottle before bed. You LOVE to eat!
You sit, jabber, crawl (slowly), roll every which way, feed yourself mum mums, you still have no teeth, if you crawl over to me laying down then you will grab onto me and stand up
I will be the first to admit that I am so nit picky and always expect perfection from my kids which is 100% unrealistic and I'm working on it. Milam's "bad" days would probably be considered amazing by most mom's standards. He is literally the easiest baby to make happy. The only thing hard about him, really hard in his 6 months of life, was when he thought the 2 hours in the middle of the night from 2-4 AM were day time (the first 6 weeks of his life) and the fact that he wasn't super predictable nap wise. Other than that thrush week was really hard but nothing compared to the 6 weeks of crying with Georgia (from 7pm to 11pm every night!)
Milam, you are quite literally the light of my life. There is no way on Earth that I could love you any more. You are just the sweetest bitty boy ever. Your dad and I are the two most blessed parents. We both love you so so much.
Things to add...you are so SO loud, your hands are so SO busy, you weigh 20 pounds even (90th %) and are 28.5 inches (99th %), you adore your sister, you love your wood teether, taggy puppy, teether ring, and all your books. You talk to your sister the most but mom gets the best smiles, and you are in size three diapers and 9-12 clothes.
