Yesterday, this guy turned five months old.  We were so busy I didn’t have time to write a post but I did get the pictures done! (Patting myself on the back)

Husband & I were just reading Bennett’s Five Month Old Post and I wish I would have read it before I wrote Remy’s four month post because their height at four months was exactly the same and Bennett weighed only one pound less.  When I was re-reading all the things that Bennett was doing at five months, I couldn’t help but compare it to what Remy is doing… Bennett was almost crawling at five months!  Remy really doesn’t even push up on his forearms yet.  He’s trying but not quite strong enough.  And Bennett was sitting up on his own with ease, where Remy is not.  Again, he is trying and he is almost there, but not quite.

My sweet and smiley Remy has lots of social outings (just like big bro did) just his is usually with his big bro and big bro’s friends ;).  He has started going to some of his own mom group outings, but we have been so busy traveling that it makes it tough to go to all of them.  Remy just flew on this tenth flight last week on our way home from Chicago, so he is traveling a lot more than Bennett was at this age.  He does so well on the planes!

A month from now Remington will be starting swim lessons at the same place that Bennett goes (hopefully at the same time too!).  He really loves the pool and floating around.  He usually can stay in the water with us for up to an hour without fussing at all!  And next week he will be going to music class with big bro- I’m pretty sure Bennett started music class a little later but since Remy doesn’t cost anything right now, I thought why not let him tag along, I just know he is going to LOVE it!

Right now, Remy loves to find his feet and put his toes in his mouth, he is drooling like crazy (just like Bennett was), he’s not as interested in real food yet… still very happy with his bottles, hates the car seat, completely sleeps through the night- even when we are traveling and he is in random cribs, loves lots of eye contact and is just the most angelic little… ugh… big!! baby ;)

We love you, Remington!  Keep being the precious gift from God that you are to me!

Bennett Wesley :: 9 Months Old

Today as we were leaving our 9 month appointment the doctor says, “Bye Bennett!  See you after your first birthday!”

Ummmm… excuse me?!?  First birthday?? That’s like… light years away, right?!?  I guess not {insert head thrown back, crying emoji face here}.  I don’t even want to think about that.

This nine month old baby of mine is seriously a handful.  I knew he would be the day he was born, but every day is a new adventure with him.  He is full of emotions, loves trying any and all foods, loves opening and closing every drawer and cabinet in the house {we recently baby proofed}, and tries to climb on/ off everything.  This boy does not sit still. Ever.  He is always curious about what is around the corner, behind the door, down the stairs, up the stairs, in his room, in Husband & my room, our bathroom, etc… He loves tormenting the dogs, chasing after them in his walker, it’s probably one of the funniest things to watch.  Sasha likes the chase but Layla steers clear.

Bennett got sick for the first time 2 weeks ago.  It was not fun.  Poor little dude was miserable, I’m so glad it’s finally gone.  I’m actually quite shocked he didn’t get sick sooner.  I keep him active in a lot of social baby outings such as music class, Gymboree, and playdates, so I guess I should count myself lucky since it just recently happened.  I’m definitely not looking forward to the next cold… they really linger :(

Other than that, Husband & I are having so much fun taking this sweet boy for bike rides around the hood, going to the parks to swing on all the swings and slide down all the slides, shopping for cute little boy clothes ;)… He still LOVES bath time & “Brown Bear Brown Bear”.  At his appointment this morning, he weighed in at almost twenty pounds and was over 31 inches long.  Doc says he is very healthy and so happy!  This boy is the very best thing to ever happen to Husband & I!  I still cannot believe he is ours!  He amazes me every single day! We love you so much, Bennett!
