Nicholas is 5 months old!

I can't believe it is time for the 5 month update. I wish I could slow the time just a bit, but I can't, so I have to try and enjoy every little moment with my little children.

So, the big news is the Nicholas got his two bottom teeth!!! YAY!! I didn't even know he was teething so bad, he was just drooling a lot, then I stick my finger in his mouth and he bites me. I was very surprised to see his two teeth cut through.

He is jumping in his jumper and loving it, he is no longer a little quiet baby, he jumps and screeches, or if Emily is playing, he will watch her and yell at her.

He still sleeps very well. He goes to bed at 10:30pm, and wakes up at 8:30am. (I nurse him during the night, we co-sleep, so I don't really pay attention to the clock, whenever he starts whining I nurse him) Then he naps again around 10am-11am. Then his long nap time (2 hours) is sometime around 2pm, and then he also takes a nap around 6pm. So in total he takes 3 naps a day.

One problem I have with him, he is a biter while nursing, I read about it online, they say to unlatch the baby and say no and then re-latch again, well this has been happening for about one week now, and he still bites me while nursing. Anyone else have a problem with this? And how did it stop?

He started taking a pacifier, which keeps him quiet in public places.

He loves going on walks and usually falls asleep from the motion of the moving stroller. He loves swinging on the baby swing outside.

Still using cloth diapers. I started giving him mashed banana, some baby oatmeal, he loves the food. He is a big boy with a hearty appetite.

My little baby boy is growing to fast..... till next month.
