5 months

Stats: Weight- 13.2 lbs.

Clothes: Calvin is wearing 3 month clothes and size one diapers. I love seeing him in so many of the outfits that Christian wore! I have pulled out the 3-6 month clothes and size 2 diapers since we will be transitioning soon.

 Sleep: Sweet boy still fights evening sleep from around 7-11 and wants to be held. We did get him to sleep in the swing a few times then which was amazing! :) He sleeps in the pack and play in our room and still loves to be swaddled. His wake time is usually no more than an hour to an hour and a half.
Typical "schedule":
8:00am wake up
9:30am Nap
12:00pm Nap
3:00pm Nap (sometimes this nap merges with the 12:00 with a feeding in the middle)
5:00 or 6:00 pm Nap
7:00 Bath and get ready for bed then fight sleep for 3+ hours…
Wakes up between 4:00am and 6:00am to eat

Activities: We have been enjoying walks and going to the park. Calvin naps so well in the Ergo which makes us able to get out a bit more often. He still loves the activity mat and tried the bumbo for the first time.  We celebrated Calvin's first Easter this month.

Development: Calvin has made a huge leap in head control the last few weeks. When he is on his tummy, he will lift it about 45 degrees but is more stable when being held. He rolled over this month and usually rolls more easily from his back to stomach. He loves to smile and giggle but doesn't have any big laughs yet. (Maybe he will always be a quiet giggler :) ) He loves blowing raspberries and is very ticklish! This month he also held onto a toy for the first time- a bowling pin handed to him by his brother!

Stitch Fix #2

I was so excited to receive my second Stitch Fix this week. I was hoping to add some fun spring items to my closet.
Below is a note from my stylist for this fix. I was given a new stylist this time and again I feel like she nailed my style. I loved to read that my Pinterest board was used as inspiration and was even sent a specific item that I had pinned!

Here is a look at the five items I was sent: 
*Stanley Raglan Top
*Moni Geo Print Blouse (sent with cami to go underneath! This was the item I had pinned)
*Haiden Straight Leg Jeans
*Alen French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan
*Corinna Striped Dolman Top

What I returned:
*Haiden Straight Leg Jeans- I loved the jeans but unfortunately the waist was too big so I sent them back
*Moni Geo Print Blouse- This was a really fun shirt but the sleeves just didn't fit quite right
*Corinna Striped Top- I loved this shirt but due to keeping on a budget, I decided to send it back this time. I did ask to get it later in another fix. I love that get to make specific comments and requests on each item I was sent and on the fix overall.

What I Kept:

*Stanley Raglan Top- I love that this is a shirt I can wear everyday, its super comfortable and fun that the whole back is striped.

* Alen French Terry Asymmetrical Zip Cardigan- This was my splurge :) It was a bit more expensive than I normally would spend but I think it will be well worth it. This top is a soft jersey like material but is very heavy. It can be wear open as a cardigan or zipped up the side. I love that I can wear this over a dress or with yoga pants and it works!

Want to try it yourself? Sign up here and help me out on my next fix too! :)

We made a trip over to see the tulips with some friends. It was gorgeous! It basically turned out to be a photo shoot :) Rayleigh and Christian had a blast smiling in the tulips, hugging, giggling and running around. After exploring the flowers, we enjoyed a treat of kettle corn! :)
