This happy girl is 5 months old! She had a check-up for her ear infection, so we got to weigh her. She weighs 15 lbs., 1 oz. I’m not totally sure of her length…I attempted to measure her at home and it was 25 inches.
She’s wearing size 2 diapers, 3-6 month clothing, and drinks 5 ounces at a time now! She is eating 4 tablespoons of cereal at night (probably 3-4 nights a week) and drinks around 6 bottles a day.
She is sleeping AWESOME. She is now sleeping through the night without any wakeups! We did a little sleep training to get her to fall asleep on her own without a paci and it’s been great. She sleeps 11-12 hours straight.
Still no teeth, but always lots of drool and chewing. I could have SWORN her bottom teeth were about to break through, but now don’t seem swollen at hard on her gums at all. Who knows?
She’s smiley and happy and bright eyed. Strangers always comment on her alertness.
She had her first time with a “babysitter” (it was her cousin, but it was the first time not with mom, dad, or a grandma) and she did GREAT.
Her first sickness was this month- an ear infection. It was tough with her fever and she was miserable (and sweet baby tried to play and be happy), but I’m thankful she takes medicine well and got over it quickly.
She talks ALL THE TIME. Lots of babbling and talking- in the car, in the crib, when we play, when she eats.
She lover her toys, especially the green oball, the jingle bell rattle, the dolly, and her pony.
She loves being outside. Walks are great for her- lots to look at and so many things to see!
She loves the jumper. She really gets going in there. It’s a saving grace to cook and eat while she plays. She also still loves tummy time and has quit rolling out of it because she doesn’t seem to mind it at all.
She is quick to giggle at lots of things. It’s so fun to make her laugh.
My favorite thing is she has a few really long hairs on the top of her head! It’s so sweet! I don’t want to cut them.
Here’s to five months of fun with this baby girl!
Remington, you’ve taught me more about grace, selflessness and love in these last 5 months. I’m so glad you’re ours. We love you and your sweet giggle more than anything.
