Jacoby Is 5-Months Old!

5-Month Stats:
16 lbs. 8 oz.
26.25 inches


He just keeps getting older, bigger, cuter, and smarter! I can't believe he is already 5-months old...
The little guy is growing like a weed!

Considering he's been fussy, and not wanting to eat, he has still gained a lot of weight this month. He went to the doctor twice last week, so I know those stats are accurate. So far, he has gained 10lbs. and 2 oz. since birth, and grown 7 inches. WOW, WOW, WOW!

This month, Jacoby has been all smiles. I know that sounds weird considering how "fussy" he's been, but when he isn't in pain, he is just happy and smiling. He is loving his saucer, jumper, and he's even moving in his walker. We don't keep him in any of them for very long because I am so paranoid about hurting his back, but the few minutes he's in them, he really likes them - finally! (He will be allowed to stay in them longer once he's about 6 months old.) I thought he would never like any of his toys! He is grabbing things and will hold onto his rattle and /or anything we hand him for a short time. He grabs the toys on the side of his jumper and they go straight to his mouth, but hey, that's a baby for ya!
He is making more & more noises and mocking sounds. Anything that Jeremy does makes him laugh. It's TOO cute for words the bond that Jeremy has with him.

Oh...and the joys of spoon feeding! He SO loves his veggies, fruits, & cereal. Let me just say that I can feed him an ENTIRE jar of veggies, another of fruit, and he doesn't spit out a thing! I have had many instances where I don't even have to wipe his bib. He's a great eater, and prefers the food to his bottle.

I blogged about his teeth yesterday...
Basically, I can't brag enough about my little guy. It's so nice to squeeze him and love on him. He has been a wonderful addition to our family, and we are so happy to have him. The nights of being awake, the tears, the smiles, the gurgles...it's all part of raising a child.
Children teach you how to live, and without my 2 boys, I would be nobody!
Enjoy the pictures below...


Happy 5-Month Birthday, Jacoby Cade Rogers!
Also, Happy 1-Year Anniversary, Amanda & Ameet!




Too Handsome!

PS: I just tried for 20 minutes to upload a video, and it wouldn't let me! I'm tired and ready for bed since I have to be up at 5:40 AM. Sorry!

I love my two beautiful & handsome grandchildren, wow...Can't believe how big Jacoby is getting. He seems to be such of a happy baby. Which means he's getting plenty of attention (as he should)but most of all LOVE which he NEEDS!

I'm proud of you for being such of a great mom and Jeremy as well.

All my love to Jaydon too.

Muchos besos,
Papi/Abuelo,
