Five Months!

One of the downsides of not owning a bathroom scale is that you can't randomly weigh your kids. Magnus and Mina were feeling very similar weight-wise so we weighed them when we were visiting my parents. I was very surprised to see that Magnus was almost 17 1/2 lbs at five months old. That feeling of surprise was blown away when Mina weighed in at 24 lbs! Our miniature girl is growing!  But, back to Magnus...
At five months old...
   Magnus weighs 17 1/2 pounds and is approximately 26 inches long. Wiggly kids are really tough to measure!

   Magnus wears 3-6 and 6 month clothes. His 3 month pajamas fit but they are very short in the arm. He wears size 2 diapers. 
He sometimes sleeps through the night, otherwise he will wake up once to eat.  Bedtime is between 8:00 and 9:00 with a final wake up around 8:30. 

We haven't started Magnus on solid food yet but we will soon. He seemed really interested in eating dinner last night!

He is starting to get the hang of sitting up, he might have it down by next month!
Here is Magnus with his cousin Sammy. Thanks to genetics, this will probably be the only time Magnus is taller than Sammy!
Magnus' hair has started to grow, it's so golden! I'm excited to see what color it settles on, especially because he was so dark at birth. 
Here is a comparison shot of cousin Kate and Magnus. They are 4 1/2 months apart. She will probably be taller than him as well. Sorry kid, your parents aren't tall. 
We love our happy little guy! He is the sweetest!
