Dear Jaxon…5 Months

Dear Jaxon...

Dear Jaxon,

Hello little boy. How are you today? This morning you weren’t so great. I think you knew that you were spending part of the day with Grandma and Grandpa and decided to be grumpy. Each time I put you down you started to cry. When I arrived back at Grandma and Grandpa’s you had started to cry but as soon as you heard me you settled again. We had a little feed as you had already had enough to drink. Then you crashed out and slept in my arms for about half an hour. While I write this you’ve just opened your eyes but I’m pretty sure you’re still asleep.

It’s now past bedtime and you’re asleep in your cot. Daddy, you and I went out for tea while Our Sidekick was at trampolining. You had a feed and I put you back into the car seat while I ate. Part way through my dinner I looked over and you were falling asleep.

We had less crazy adventures this last month. We went to Milton Keynes with Grandma and Heathrow with Cat, Kieran and Loz. With Christmas coming up we have some adventures with Daddy and Our Sidekick. One of those is going to Suffolk to visit your Great Aunt. Actually it’s meeting your Great Aunt for the first time. We were going to see her earlier but various things got in the way and we couldn’t go in the end.

You love to smile and sometimes manage to sign something resembling “drink” or “milk” which is really cool. It’s easier when it’s an obvious sign but sometimes I have to go with the big cheesy grin you give me in response to my question.

Anyway, I love you little one.

Love Mummy x

So here’s some stats…

Weight: Around 18lbs. We haven’t been to get you weighed recently but on Thursday I’ll be getting you weighed so we can figure this one out properly
Clothes: 3-6 months but you’re on the border of 6-9 months.
Nappies: Size 4 -we attempted reusables but they kept leaking. I need to have a proper look at what’s going on.
Feeds: You had been down to one feed a night but I think you might be growing. You seem to have a feed around 1-3am and then a second around 5am. Some nights it’s okay but sometimes it’s hard work to get up twice in the night. Sometimes you end up in the bed because I can’t keep my eyes open and I fear I might drop you.
Teeth: Those two bottom teeth are still in there. You have three of your four middle teeth on the top poking into your gums – daddy and I can see the teeth getting closer. You like when we run our fingers over your gums. I think it’s soothing.
Bedtime: Sometimes it still varies but nearly every night you’re in bed around 10pm so it’s more of a routine.
Likes: you still love the bright colours and music of Strictly Come Dancing but according to Grandpa you like Top Gear too. You like being naked or just in your nappy.
Dislikes: You’re still not a fan of being on your own and some days it’s worse than others. You like being naked but don’t always like putting your clothes on. In the summer it’s fine to run around with no clothes on but right now it’s very cold!
