Charlie is 5 months old

At 5 months, Charlie continues to roll over like a champ.  He almost immediately goes to his stomach if you put him on his back so pictures this month were a bit of a challenge.  He can kind of balance himself while trying to sit up, but quickly leans all the way forward until his on his belly again.  He got his first tooth a few days before turning 5 months and I think the next one is coming in too.  He has not stopped drooling or chewing his fingers!!  He has the best laugh and absolutely adores his big brother and sister.  For some reason, Ethan in particular mesmerizes him.  He has gained about a pound and is 15 lbs 2 oz.  He is still wearing his 6-9 month clothes and size 3 diapers. Charlie is still an awesome sleeper, going from 8:30pm to around 8:00/8:30 am.  This month he also finally got the hang of napping in his crib.  He falls asleep on his own and most of the time without even a peep!  He is still nursing 5 times a day with an occasional 6th feeding thrown in there, and from the way he watches me eat, I imagine he'll be ready for solids soon!!!

Charlie is 4 months!

At 4 months old, Charlie was still 14lbs 5oz, and was 25 inches long.  That means he dropped to the 50th percentile for weight.  Although this is the "smallest" baby I've had, his pediatrician was not worried at all.  He is a great eater and a great sleeper!  This month, Charlie really got the hang of rolling over from back to his belly.  He has seemingly forgotten how to go from tummy to back because he's so focused on his new skill.  He is starting to take naps in his crib, and still prefers to sleep on his side.  When he does get onto his belly he cries and cries and won't fall asleep.  Charlie is a super happy and laid back baby.  He will always give you great smiles even if he was woken up early and even as his eyelids are drooping as he falls asleep.  He is in size 3 diapers and can still wear both his 3-6 month clothes and his 6-9 month clothes.  As you can see from the pictures, Charlie LOVES his fingers!!!

August was spent loving on these precious babies!  We hung out at home a lot and played outside.  The kids are really enjoying Charlie now that he is more interactive!  We spent a week at St. Augustine Beach with my family and had a blast as always!!  I definitely didn't take as many pictures as I have in the past, but that's just because we were so much busier with 3!!  Charlie enjoyed his naps on the beach and Hannah and Ethan loved playing with their cousins.  We all loved being with all of the extended family too!

Charlie is 3 months

At 3 months Charlie is consistently sleeping through the night.  We moved him up to his own room and he is in the big crib!  He has started to be able to scoot a little while on his back or tummy, and got himself wedged a few times in the bassinet.  He smiles, laughs, and has started to get ticklish!!!  He still basically naps in the swing, but we are trying to work on crib naps more.  He has started to enjoy the stroller more and loves to watch his big sister and big brother.  He is still a super relaxed baby and will go to anyone.  He still takes a paci, and the only times he cries are when he is hungry or sleepy.  He weighs 14lb 5oz and still fits well in his 3-6 month clothes.  He has started wearing some 6-9 month clothes too, but they are a little big.

July was a fun summer month for us!  We started the month off with a few days in Myrtle Beach to celebrate the 4th.  The kids loved the beach, the pool and especially the water park!  We had a blast, and everyone but Ethan enjoyed the fireworks.  The rest of the month included art camp for Hannah at a friend's house, a fun weekend in Asheville with cousins, dinner out with Uncle Elmer and Aunt Mary, a pony ride, and lots of fun hanging out around home.
