Happy Halloween & 5 months old!

Little Monsters on their way to school!

Liam's favorite spot. This is the only place he will eat over the last few days.
Liam had a pretty big 4th month! He had a big growth spurt and is up to 12lbs 8oz. and 21 inches long. He is still sporting the 0-3 month clothes but he can manage some 3-6 month onesies. He is is out of newborn pants but only because they are too short. He continues to move nonstop. He has an excellent grip and can almost put the pacifier in his mouth once he takes it out. He LOVES the work "Yeah!" It makes him laugh almost every time you say it. He also seems to love watching football already. Last weekend the TV was on and he was quite and content when a game was on and cried during commercials. It was pretty funny. He has also rolled from stomach to back quite a few times which makes doing tummy time difficult. He wants to be albe to sit BAD. He has some strong abs and is always trying to sit up in his bouncy chair. One downfall is he may have had an ear infection and had his first round of medicine but no one really knows for sure because he refused to hold still while the doctor looked in his ear. He continues to battle some conjestion which Dave and I think is because he may have some allergies. Another downfall...he really likes his thumb which is why we always have a pacifier close by! Lot easier to lose a paci than an thumb later on!  
Ridiculous how big this kids eyes are!
Kellen is a pretty happy baby. He eats and sleeps like a champ. He usually sleeps through the night. He was 13 lbs. 13 oz. and 22 in long at his last appointment. He has only rolled from his back to stomach one time (yep that one time I was in the shower) and can easily roll from his stomach to back. He is enjoying tummy time more. He sucks on everything. His hands, your shoulder, your cheek, Liam's hands, his glow name it he is trying to lick it. He is also a random spit up master...usually right after I put a clean onesie on him in the as I am still buttoning it. So he is continuously dirty. Kellen also loves the TV. He will turn circles on the floor trying to get a good look at it and sometimes cries when he wants to watch it. Not great news. Kellen also wants to sit up on his own and probably will first as he is a little bit stronger than Liam  but we will see.

Hope you all had a great halloween!
