Kingsley is 5 months!

And another month bites the dust! Five months which scares me knowing in just one more I will have had him for half of a year.. This whole parenting thing is so crazy sometimes!
 So after I started giving King bottles every time after I nursed him he really chunked up! So lately it seems like I nurse him to sleep only about 5 min on each side & then he will take 8oz of Formula when he wakes up. I am surprised he even will still nurse at all, but am sad to know it probably wont last much longer :(
Anyways as far as other changes at 5 months:
*He only sleeps on his stomach. It really freaked me out at first, but I can't stop him. The second I lay him down he rolls over on to his belly. The stranger thing is the fact that he has not figured out how to roll from his belly back to his back. (from what I read in books my son has done this backwards.. most babies learn front to back first)
*This kid sucks on everything all the time. My shoulders and arms are always soaked with slobber.
*Lately he loves to scream. Not a cry scream, but a talking scream. Seems like he figured out that the sound is coming from him & he thinks it is awesome. It sort of hurts your ears though, so I hope he quiets it down some.
*One of my favorite things he does at 5 months is to talk himself to sleep, it's just so sweet.
He has finally grasped the concept of naps, which I am thrilled about. They aren't always consistent, but way better than the random 30mins he was doing before.
*He loves to grab his feet, and stare at his hands outstretched.
*He has a death grip that hurts so bad when he pinches your skin!
*He loves seeing the dog & always giggles when he runs by or barks.
*Kingsley got sick for the first time :( He got a cold & I swear he had it almost all month. It really threw off his night sleep. For three weeks straight he kept waking up at 3:30am which was the worst after he had been sleeping thru the night! I was feeling so sleep deprived & frustrated that I finally let him cry it out one night.. Luckily that is all it took & he is back to sleeping 10 hours or so. phew!
Here is his progression from one month to five. Crazy right? Apperance wise he has mostly just gotten chubbier & lighter thinner hair.
King is still such a happy smiley baby which we love. I can really tell he knows me now & even tries to reach for me sometimes :)
Love this little one too much! See previous months:

Pumpkin Patch 2012

Isn't fall the greatest? I just love seeing all the leaves change & pulling out my scarfs and boots. This year (especially since I have a child in tow) we headed over to the Farmington pumpkin patch. I know Kingsley doesn't really have a clue what's going on, but it's still nice to take him out & about.
 Looking at these pictures confirms that I really need a haircut.. Especially since I have had three men including my own father in law ask if I have extensions!? Are they even that popular anymore? I don't know, but I would rather not have people think my hair is fake so maybe I need to cut off the dead ends and get a new look.
 Hawkes is at an age where this stuff is really fun for him :)
I just die over this picture of my baby brother Jaxon. He is getting so grown up & even looks like he is getting a little stash :)
 I love to get King all dressed up
 How funny are these characters?

 Some family photos before baby # 2 arrives
Grandma & Kingsley were matching :)

 The crew, can't wait to go again next year!

Kingsley's Blessing

A couple of Sunday's ago in between conference sessions we blessed Kingsley at our home.  Kingsley was four months old, but Jeremy & I wanted to wait until his brother and most of mine could be there. (We missed you Nick & Erin!)
Jeremy requested a ham, funeral potatoes, rolls & salad, so with the help of both our moms I made it happen.
Wish we looked better in this picture, but hey at least Kingsley is happy, it was his day anyways right?
So finding a white outfit for him ended up being a little difficult since 6-12month outfits were huge on him, and 0-6 were floods. So I settled for shorts since I figured King would look adorable either way :)
This little boy just melts my heart!
Kingsley with cousin Hawkes.
It's hard to tell who's the baby & who's the toddler with these two ;)
Sorry for the picture overload, but I just couldn't help it!
 Kingsley wore his dad's shoes from when he was a baby :)
 I feel like he is already giving the fake smile 'leave me alone mom' look.. ha
We were had such a fantastic day, and were so grateful for all those who came to support our little man. He is definitely loved :)
