Beckham - 24 & 25 Weeks

I am not keeping up here lately! I guess that's life with 2 kids! I at least remember to take his picture every Monday (or sometimes Tuesday).

Likes: babbling all sorts of new sounds, watching and laughing at Parker all day, peekaboo

Dislikes: staying up too late (for naps or bedtime)

What's New in the Last (few) Weeks: Ever since we got back from California his sleeping has been terrible; only sleeping for 2-3 hours at a time. Well in the last week, we decided to just get him back to sleep instead of feeding him because he wasn't waking to eat. I think he was just waking between sleep cycles. He would always fall asleep eating. I think that has helped because he is learning to fall back asleep. Two nights ago he slept from 7:30 until 4 am! Last night he only woke at 1:30. I think we are pulling out of the terrible 4-5 month range!

Parker loves to use the new selfie stick! Beckham seemed to like it too!

He loves to nap on his belly.

He screeches when Parker gets tickled! I think he thinks Parker is hurt.

He just loves Parker so much!

25 weeks is when I went back to work with Parker and I am so thankful that I am able to keep staying home this time! Beckham is getting to such a fun stage and I love hanging out with Parker.

Beckham - 5 Months

Measurements: On Monday Beckham weighed 16 pounds 11 ounces! (After he ate he weighed 17 even!) He' grew an inch and is 26 inches long! He's getting so big! I think today I will get out the 6-9 month clothes and join them in with the 3-6 month clothes. He is somewhat long and most of his sleepers are tight on his legs - his toes are at the end and seem a little scrunchy. His poor little arms are short though! Most of his long sleeves are too long.

Milestones: He is sitting up! He definitely figured out his balance for the most part! He still falls over so I have to be by him but I'm sure soon he will be a sitting pro! He's rolled onto his belly once but he is thisclose to doing it! His butt and legs are just so big!

Schedule: His schedule is still the same as 3 and 4 months except his night time sleeping is terrible. He's been waking every 2-3 hours :( So today is the first day of no swaddle! He really needs to self-soothe because when he wakes in the middle of the night, I will feed him but he falls right back to sleep. So I don't think he's waking because he's hungry. We'll see how this goes! 

Beckham - 21-23 Weeks

Yes, I know the first thing you notice is his big ole thighs and not his cutie little socks! I mean seriously, get a look at those tree trunks! His big legs match his cute little pumpkin head :)

Likes: tickles, Parker, and grunting all. day. long.

Dislikes: sleeping all night

What's New in the Last Few Weeks: He rolled over onto his belly once! He can almost roll onto his belly all the time, but as you can see, he has a lot of weight down below to flip over :)

He is also doing really well sitting! He can sit for a decent amount of time before falling over or just hitting his chest onto the ground like a squatting duck. I'm exited for the coming stages! I know he's going to want to keep up with Parker.

Today I am quitting the swaddle cold turkey. Since he's waking quite a bit in the middle of the night, he can't really soothe himself since his hands are swaddled. So off it goes!

Since it's been a few weeks, I put my pictures into a short video :)
