Five months old

The boys are five months old yesterday. I can’t believe how quickly the last couple months have gone by and how much the boys change every week. In just the last week, they are starting to get eyebrows and we’ve had first laughs from Parker and Andrew.

I took the boys in for a weight check and boy are they growing fast:
Andrew is 14 lbs 8 oz last month he was 12 lbs 4 oz. A gain of 2 lbs 4 oz.
Parker is 14 lbs 3 oz, last month he was 12 lbs 2 oz. A gain of 2 lbs 1 oz.
Nicholas is 12 lbs 15 oz, last month he was 11 lbs 7 oz. A gain of 1 lb 8 oz.

I’m a little worried that Nick is still not gaining weight as fast as his brothers, but he seems healthy and happy. We are just finishing up a growth spurt. The boys were all taking 6 to 7 ounces of milk every 4 hours for just over a week then taking longer naps than usual. Now they are back to their normal feeds, but now we know what a growth spurt looks like.

Here is their 5 month picture!

(Andrew, Parker, Nicholas)
Cody got to play with his new photo toys (backdrop, flash gels, etc) for this shot.


  1. They are so cute!! Those are great weights too!! Did you find out if they are all identical?

  2. Still waiting to hear back from the genetics lab. Hopefully tomorrow.

  3. The photo is great!! The boys are so handsome and I can't believe how much they have grown and changed. I have my own little man to watch the changes happen in, but it still amazes me in other people's children. They are just the sweetest!
