Wow! 5 months already. Mommy and Daddy are having so much fun watching you explore the things around you. We love to hear you jabber away and tell us all about it. We are very blessed to be your mommy and daddy!
|Yum Yum Yum...Toes!|
|Look I can get my knees up under me and my belly off the floor.|
|I love tummy time!|
|Fingers are always in the mouth.|
|No teeth yet, but she sure is acting like she's teething.|
Weight: 12.5 lbs (this was clothed with a diaper on at urgent care)
Eating: She is still breast feeding 3 times a day and taking 3 5-6oz bottles of breast milk a day. She typically breast feeds around 6:45am, bottles at 9:30, 12:30, and 3:30, breast feeds around 6:00, and 8:45pm. Those are all rough estimates. While I was in Chicago for one of my interview trips, she stopped the middle of the night feed. She woke up in the middle of the night. Eric gave her her pacifier to calm her down while he was warming up the bottle. When he went back to get her she was asleep. She has been without a middle of the night feed for almost an entire month.
Bedtime: We start our bedtime routine around 8:30. This consists of bath (which is every other day), baby massages (lotion time), pjs, Advent (we read a nightly short story this month), eat and bed by 9:15-9:30.
Awake: She is awake for about 2 hours at a time right now. We start our day at about 6:45. If she's not awake by then, we wake her up to get her day going.
Naps: She typically takes two shorter naps in the morning. Then in the afternoon she will take about a two and a half hour nap. She then takes a 45-60 minute nap in the evenings from 6:30-7:30ish.
Diapers: size 1 still, Once we finish off what we have, we will make the transition to size 2.
Clothes: 3 months, we got rid of all of the clothes that were 0-3 month as they were too small.
Favorites: She sure loves morning time. Once she wakes up she is all smiles and just "talks". She really is a happy baby always smiling. She loves to talk and we have heard a few ba-, ga, and even ma- out of her when she jabbers away. She loves to stand. If we are out to dinner, we just get her out of the car seat and she just loves standing to look around. She also has figured out that she can "move." She scoots around by pushing backwards and rolls around. Long gone are the days that I put her down and she stays in one spot. She can sit by herself in the "tri-pod" position. She can sometimes sit normal for a few seconds. She is starting to pull her knees up under herself while on her tummy too. It's too cute.
