Zoom in on Zayne- 5 months old

Hey sweet boy!
Welllll, you're still just as amazing as when you were born. You are just a dreamy little boy. You are so happy, so sweet, so content! I often stop what I'm doing because your smile is irresistible. Seriously, you smile at me and I just have to come over to you! And then we hang out :) And chat. You coo a lot. And tell me all about your day. I love laying with you or holding you and watching you do your thang. You are such a joy and I am so very thankful I get to be your Mama!!

Whats new with you...
You rolled over! From your tummy to your back. You love to chew on my fingers. Everything goes in your mouth. I think its a combination of the age you're at and possibly teething. I don't see or feel any teeth, but you drool and chew on everything. And to be perfectly honest, that's totally the phase you're at, so who really knows if you're teething. You're not fussy at all, so you're not in any pain. Raya and Kallen both had an easy time when their teeth came in so I'm hoping you'll have an easy time too!

You sleep well. You're not really on a sleep schedule yet. During the day I let you play and sleep whenever you feel like it. When you're tired you fall asleep easily. And you take pretty long naps too! Sometimes I forget I have 3 kids! I'm talking like 3 to 5 hour naps. You go to bed around 7 and sleep until your brother wakes you up around 6 or 7 the next morning. You wake up once or twice to nurse but its a simple thing. I put the pack-n-play next to the bed so you go between that and our bed throughout the night. Bottom line we both wake up refreshed so that's all I care about! And you LOVE when I snuggle up to your face with mine. I can almost guarantee, if you're tired and I put my face against yours that's all you need to fall asleep. Its one of life's most perfect moments.

You're still nursing like a champ. You seem to be growing steadily. I had to take you to the doc cause Raya gave you your first cold, which you didn't even fuss about. Seriously dude, You. Are. Amazing! And side note, I would be totally ok with that fact that you were fussy while you were sick, I expect it, but the only reason I knew you were sick was because of your symptoms. You had a cough, stuffy nose, mild fever and the 2nd or 3rd day you broke out in hives and got them on and off for about 2 days. But you're all good now. I think you were sick for about 7-8 days. Tough guy! But at that doc appt you weighed 16 pounds. You're in 3-6month clothes and size 3 diapers.

Things you love...
You love to cuddle. And listen to your Daddy. When he comes home from work you do all you can to see where he is when you hear is voice. You love hanging with me :) (likewise) You love to sleep, eat and play. You LOVE your big sister. She cracks you up. Shes so good with you and is the first person to really make you laugh hard, like that non-stop cracking up laugh. Its so cute. One of your fav things is when she fake coughs. You think its hilarious. You 2 also laugh alot when you're in the car. You can see her when you're in your car seat and she makes you laugh and coo and helps you when you drop your pacifier. You're also much better in the car. There was a few weeks that you hated it. After about 30mins you were over it and pissed, but as of now you're good to go! I think now that you have toys and things to do you stay entertained and don't mind being strapped down. You love to chew on things, especially my fingers. You love kisses and love giving them. This month you've started grabbing my face and attacking me with kisses. Its the BEST!

This month you went on your first trip! The day you turned 5 months we flew to Dallas. You slept the whole flight. And we went on a 10 day trip that included 3 long roadtrips (well 3hours, 5hours and 6 hours) and then a flight back home and you were great on all of them! You got to meet your Grandma and Papa in Texarkana and we also got to hang out at Gdaddys in Dallas.  You even visited your Mom and Dad's Alma Mater! Yep, we took you on your first college visit to the University of Arkansas. It
was a GREAT trip!! I'll have to do a whole separate post on that.

I so enjoy watching you grow. You seem to have a pretty easy going temperament. You roll with the punches and are just happy to go along! I know I'm beyond lucky. And I'm also beyond thankful that I get to be your Mommy!! I love you baby boy!
