First BYU football game

First time trying solids.

Priest Lake trip with Grandma and Grandpa Hanson.

Sleeping in silly positions.

Cutie pie before getting a hair cut.

Moves around like a crazy person -- just starting to get the actual crawl down.
Has eaten squash, beans, and carrots.
Loves to stick his tongue out.
Usually sleeps through the night, or is up just once.
Takes 2 naps.
Is so smiley and giggly.
Is ticklish on his ribs.

We sure love him!

Abe at 5 Months

+ Rolls around in all directions.
+ Somehow can move and scoot around in all directions, too. At this rate he'll be crawling soon!
+ His 2 bottom teeth have popped through, and it looks like his 2 top teeth will be making an appearance in the next month!
+ Has the cutest laugh and giggle, but still makes you work for it - he's so serious around strangers, too.
+ Still has gorgeous blue eyes
+ Sleeps 8-12 hours a night. Usually goes down around 9:30 and will either sleep through until 7 or 8, or will wake up at 5 or 6, eat, and then sleep until 8 or 9. Takes one long (2-4 hours) nap around mid-day.
+ Talks up a storm!
+ We'll probably be starting him on some "solids" in the next week or two - rice cereal and mashed up fruits/veggies. Pretty excited to see how that turns out.
+ Can sleep without being swaddled (just started this yesterday), and sleeps on his tummy now, too.

We love our Abey boy!

Abe at 4 Months

Height: 24.5 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 12 pounds, 7 ounces (20th percentile)
Head Circumference: (75th percentile)

Abe is turning out to be tall and skinny, like his daddy :)

He is our little angel baby, seriously.
He sleeps from 9:30/10 pm to about 8/9 am.
On the nights he does get up, it's only once and it's around 3/4 am.
He usually only cries when he's hungry or tired (or in pain - those blasted shots!) - and momma has his cries figured out :)

Nicknames include: bubs, bubba, little love, little lovey, fuzzball, Abey, Abey-baby, Abesy, little man, and our baby genius.

He usually takes 3-4 30-60 minutes naps a day and one 2-4 hour nap as well.
He's just started to roll over from front to back and back to front, but only a couple of times a day.
He loves to be laid down on the floor and will kick and scoot and half-roll all around.
He takes a binky when falling asleep.
He has the best smiles in the world, and the cutest giggles and laughs, although he makes us work pretty hard for those.
He can be a chatter box when he wants to!
He's starting to get the grabbing thing down and can hold on to items for a while (which means he is learning to grab my hair...) :)
He loves when we hold him up to stand.

Dr. Weeda gave him the ok to start solids whenever we feel ready. I think he'll be ready closer to 6 months. He's such a little guy, still!

He brings so much joy into our lives and we just think he is the best.

A Little Catchin' Up

I've been pretty scarce around these parts lately. I started a new blog, and I've been focusing on getting that one up and running. You can check it out here {My Little Sunshines} and I'd love if you followed it! I'm not sure what creating that new blog means for this one. If I want it to take over, or if I want to keep them separate and perhaps make this one private. I'm not sure yet. But I'll let you know if I do anything drastic! :)

We had a GREAT vacation down in Utah. We got to spend time with our family and friends, Kyle gave a wonderful blessing to Abe, we got family pictures taken, and we ate a lot of good food :)

I'm not sure if I mentioned it - but we were released from Primary and I am now the Mia Maids advisor! It is a lot of fun. I'm really glad to be back in Young Womens! Kyle and I have been enjoying the summer - going on drives and to the park.

Abe is doing so great. We are so glad we have him in our family now. He just brings us the most joy. I can't get enough of his cute, snuggly self!! He is about 3 1/2 months old now, and progressing and growing all the time. He just learned how to giggle and it is the cutest thing I have ever seen. We sure love our little bubs.

Life is great over here at the Hanson's home.
We are so blessed and really have nothing to complain about.
