5 Months

I forgot to blog when Kael was 5 months.  This kid has such a cute personality.  He likes to "talk" and make lots of noises and squeal and laugh. He is always smiling and rarely fussy.  We have been really blessed with this kid.  He likes to play with his feet and scratch at everything.  He's been loving his baby food and it just made him more obsessed with regular food.  When Declan and I eat he will throw a fit because he wants some too so we trick him by giving him rice cups that are used for teething and it satisfies him.  Also he will grab at anything you drink and if you are not careful that drink will end up in your lap.  He loves playing in his jumpers and loves it when we lay him on the floor to play.  He is sitting up like a champ and is almost sitting up on his own.  He's obsessed with the dogs and squeal when they come around him.  He's been sleeping through the night since about 3 months which has been nice for me.  He still had a rough night every once and a while.  He loves when we go places because he likes to watch people especially if there are kids around.  He loves woman and is already a little flirt.  He loves my sister and will watch her if she is in the same room as him.  He also loves playing with his daddy when he comes home from work.  I'm not sure how much he weighs or how big he is but all I know is he is a heavy kid.  My arms get real tried carrying this kid around but I love his chubby arms a legs.  He loves his bath but I think he will feel differently about the pool.  We stuck his feet in the kiddy pool at my parents and he cried cause the water was cold...ha ha He will learn to get used to it because we will be spending lots of time at the pool and the lake this summer.  I will post more about Kael when he is 6 months old.  Here are some photos:

I've been working part time at night for a store called Gordmans since February but my old boss offered me an opportunity to come back to work at the insurance agency but I will be able to work from home with flexible hours.  I will just be writing business and not doing any of the servicing that I did before I had Kael.  This week will be the first week of quoting insurance since I left in November and I'm pretty excited about it.  If anyone would like an insurance quote let me know and I will be glad to help. 

Kael 4 Months

Kael is already 4 months (actually he is 4.5 months).  I can't believe how fast this is going!!!  At his four month appointment Kael weighed 16.2lbs (77%), height 25.5 inches (75%) and I can't remember how big his head was but it was only in the 50%.  Here are some things about Kael:
He loves to sucks on his hands and prefers that over his pacifier.
When he does suck on his pacifier he likes to put his bottom lip over the bottom of the pacifier.  It's really funny.  I will post a pic of it.
He loves to suck on his lips.  It's hard to explain but he will suck on his top lip or his bottom lip.
He loves the dogs.  Every time they are within his sight he just stares at them and tries to reach out and touch them.
He can now roll from his front to back and is really close rolling from back to front.
He likes to make spit bubbles and will stick out his tongue and spit.
HE LOVES TO JUMP!  Since we got him a jumper that's all he wants to do.  My arms get real tired...
He loves his baths and likes to play with the water. 
I've started giving him baby food since the dr said it was ok and Kael isn't quite sure if he likes it or not.  I started with giving him carrots and the first time I put some in his mouth he just sat there with his mouth open with a disgusted look on his face like what am I supposed to do with this.  It was so funny. 
He's such a happy baby and loves to laugh and smile. 
He loves to look at books.
He likes to suck on fabric.  If you have a long sleeved shirt on and get within his reach he will grab your sleeve and suck on it.  He likes to suck on his blankets or his stuffed toys. 
Most of the time he will sleep through the nights but every once and a while he will wake up in the middle of the night because he's hungry.  I can't believe how much this kid eats.
He's a supported sitter and loves to sit up. 
This is all I can think of right now.  Here are some photos:

He likes to look at himself with the camera on our phone.

This is what he does with his pacifier and his bottom lip.

He loves phones and took this pic of himself with my camera

He's always sticking his tongue out.
