Davin turned 5 months old on Father’s Day! Ben really is such an awesome dad and parenting partner! After I nurse Davin at 7pm, Ben does our new bedtime routine of PJs, bottle, & book…and eventually sleep. Ben is great at making Davin smile and has lots of patience when Davin isn’t so happy.
<<Notice anything different??? ….No more beard!
The day before Father’s Day we hosted a brunch with some friends, so we had lots of yummy leftovers for Father’s Day breakfast and then we went on a little hike to Percy Priest Lake with Lena & Davin… we were hoping Davin would sleep in the stroller but Ben got to carry him while I pushed the empty stroller lol. But Davin was still pretty happy for missing a nap. (We did manage to go out to brunch last weekend while Davin slept under the table in his car seat tho!) And for Father’s Day dinner we grilled steak. Between our Saturday brunch and Father’s Day dinner I think Ben did more cooking then the last few months combined lol (his least favorite household chore) since Davin kept me from being as productive in the kitchen. The day before our brunch, Ben “accidentally” ended up at Home Depot and saw the outside table he’d been eyeing last year was on sale so I guess that was his Father’s Day present to himself lol. I got him & Davin matching shirts and pictures for his office.
What else about Davin this month? He’s still a pretty happy smiley baby :). He finally noticed Lena this month and thinks she’s pretty great (altho mom isn’t so sure about all the dog slobber and hair lol). On my birthday we went swimming for the first time (sitting on the first step counts, right?) with my cousin Juleen and we tried out a baby pool with a neighbor friend! He likes baths in the tub (instead of the sink), the park swing, and sitting in his bumbo chair while we eat dinner! He isn’t crawling but somehow moves all around the crib – rolling and inch worming all over. He wants to grab and check out everything he sees and likes to put everything in his month – including his toes! Last month eating his hands was his thing, this month his toes are his favorite. Apparently Ben also liked eating his toes as a baby lol. Davin also gets his bald head and long eyelashes from Ben. Davin still takes 3 naps a day and is (almost?) down to eating 1x at night around 1-2 am altho he still wakes up a second time some nights and will go back to sleep with a pacifier… eventually… and sometimes I cave and feed him a second time.
And here’s lots of cute pics from this last month:
