Uncle Curt Visit

Uncle Curt came to visit us. It was a lovely weekend. We had so much fun relaxing, eating, playing and hanging out with everyone’s favorite uncle. And I was surrounded by boys!! They took good care of me.

We went to Union Market and ate delicious food.  We got Henry’s new crib and Clay and Curt put it together and rearranged the nursery. Very sweet.

George LOVES his Uncle Curt. Every time he work up he said “where’s uncle curt?”–even for a few days after he left. 🙂

5 months old!

Henry is 5 months old. His personality is beginning to shine! He is the most jolly, happy guy. Just wonderful! He has had quite a month with some big changes!

20140310-114338.jpg

Size: Henry is just overall a big boy. He is long and chubby. Although, I think he is getting a little less chucky and lengthening more. My estimate is that he is about 19-20 pounds. That is about 6 pounds over what George weighed at the same age. I’m sure he is also quite a bit longer. Henry is wearing 12 months clothes now, mainly for length. They are a little wide for him, but I need to be able to snap the onesies! He is still in size 3 diapers.

Sleep: No major changes in this area. Still not sleeping in super long stretches. He likes to wake up. Sigh. We put him down around 8pm and he sleeping to sometime between 1am and 3am. Then he is up every 2-3 hours after that. He naps at daycare and at home pretty well. He usually sleeps for 1-2 hours, once at 9am (or so) and once at 1pm (or so).

20140310-114411.jpg

Eating: Oh, does my boy love to eat. He is a great nurser and I love, love, love nursing him. He is starting to play and interact while he nurses, which is always so much fun. I remember nursing got a lot easier with George around this age, and its the same. Henry can latch pretty much on his own. He gets two bottles a day at daycare and usually has 10-12 ounces. I am pumping about 10-12 with 2 pumps and have not even touched my back up stash yet. My concerns about keeping up seem to have been unfounded!

20140310-114425.jpg

Temperament: Jolly. This boy smiles at EVERYONE. He is so flirty and friendly. He loves to do big belly laughs. All I have to do is look at him and I get a smile and a giggle. He thinks George is the funniest thing ever. His laugh is infectious and gets us all going! He even laughs in his sleep. He puts everything in his mouth–everything–and still loves the paci. I am trying to use it less and less…but we will see.

20140310-114434.jpg

Milestones: Amazing! He can sit up on his own for short periods (although a hand to catch him needs to be available!). He can roll back and forth easily now and is starting to roll to get to places.  I can see that he is starting to think about crawling…his little mind is working and trying to get to things. He babbles and blows bubbles. He is getting some great consonant sounds. He has found his little feet and loves to play with them–although since his belly is chubby he has trouble getting them to his mouth. He turns when you say “Henry” and imitates sounds that you make. This is amazing, since George couldn’t hear at this age and wasn’t doing this stuff–the difference is SO striking.

And of course, he got his first haircut this month!

Brothers: Still awesome! Sometimes he clearly wants attention when we are paying attention to Henry, but we just make sure to cuddle him and give him lots of attention when this happens. George has made me so proud. He clearly loves Henry and knows that he belongs to him. Watching George and Henry play is just incredible!

Fun weekend

We had a weekend that we didn’t have much going on–so we got to do some fun things. We went to the museum to see the dinos before they are closed for 5 years, went to a Hyattsville Dance Party and relaxed and cuddled!

Size

Henry and George are SUCH different sizes.

Check out their difference at the exact same age (5 months). Henry is over 2 inches taller and about 5 pounds heavier than George was at 5 months.

Henry’s Hair CUT

While Henry had crazy adorable hair, we had to get it trimmed. It was getting completely out of control and was getting in his eyes, stuck to his face with snot and drool and just generally in his way. He was constantly rubbing his eyes to get it out. I can tell he is so much more comfortable now!

We went to our favorite place, Pigtails and Crewcuts. Both boys got hair cuts. It was George’s 10th haircut, so his was 1/2 price! 🙂

George did just fine, of course, but Henry was not thrilled at all! He cried for most of it. The stylist was super patient and we got a really cute cut, even through his tears. Poor guy. Five months is just too young. The next one will be better, when he can sit up well unsupported.

Everyone at the salon made a huge deal out of how much hair he has (not just how crazy it was). The lady who cut it said she had never seen a young baby with such thick and long hair–I even braided it. He even beat out George, which I didn’t think was possible. Henry’s hair is also darker and a totally different texture.

Check out George’s first cut at 7.5 months HERE.

And check out my total stroke of brilliance in dressing them in the same outfit. Yup. I’m good.
