This month both boys have really grown the skills they
started to use last month.
Both boys started pushing themselves around more on the
floor.They have started to move
backwards, spin in a circle or move sideways to reach a toy, a tag or pester
Both boys slept through the night from 10:30 pm – 6:30 am
every night this month.
Playing with toys is becoming much more intentional and they
each have their favorite toys.Jase loves a soft crinkly book (they actually both like it and fight
over it) and Jax loves a plastic giraffe at daycare.
Both boys are rolling but they are much more interested in
sitting up assisted.
They have found their feet.Jase is much more interested in them than Jax and tries to
grab things with them.
We had our first taste of rice cereal on their 6 month
birthday and they loved it.
They attended their first College World Series.
We moved up to size 3 diapers at night and eventually to
them all the time this month.
Bathtime now takes place in our plastic tub in the bathroom
bathtub and the boys kick like crazy.
They eat 5 oz (150 ml) for feedings at daycare
Started trying naps in the cribs
Can put their pacifier in their mouth by themselves and use
the backside as something to chew on.
We enjoy spending time outside whenever we get the chance
Had his first and second tooth come through on June 3 and
Loves to be in a standing or sitting position
Is a stomach sleeper even though we put him to bed on his
back each night he always ends up on his stomach.
Does not need his arms swaddled anymore at night
Sleeps best on his left side
Rolls from back –front-back.
Loves to be outside
Is usually the first one awake in the morning.
Uses his feet for everything and loves to kick his legs
On the day Jax and Jase turned 5 months old we had Child Dedication at church.
I wanted to add words from the service to this post, but I lost them in my email. Bummer. Here are some photos from the day.
The group that was dedicated.
At the church with Pastor Jim Voth.
We had our family over for a meal following the dedication.
We ate verenika on china, which may be one of two time I use my china. The next time will be when the boys get baptized. I'm mostly kidding about only using it twice. I think.
The boys even got in on the action and sat in their high chairs for most of the meal.
Then it was time for cake. Half white for mom and half chocolate for dad.
It's a good thing we have cute boys because it distracts you from looking at how oddly the cake was decorated.
It is probably my fault the cake looked bad because I told them what to write, thinking they would put an "&" between their names. I also told them to use blue, green and brown to go with the invitation but I didn't specify what shade of those colors. Oh well.
