Our sweet little girl is 5 months old today! It still amazes me that we brought this tiny precious life into the world.
Ellie's 5 Month Stats:
*You weigh 12lbs 10oz
*You are around 25in long
*You are wearing size 0-3 and 3 month clothes still
*You are still in the smallest setting on your cloth diapers and size 1 in disposables
*You eat about every 3-4 hours
You still aren't sleeping through the night, but you are sleeping so well! You go to bed every night around 7:00-7:30 and wake up around 2:30-3:00 to eat and then sleep until anywhere between 6:00-8:30. Mommy loves the days when you sleep until 8:30 :) You are going down so well when we put you in your crib, there have even been a few nights when you put yourself to sleep! You are taking your baths in the big tub now! You lay on your sponge and like to kick kick kick in the water. It is amazing how much you have changed this month. You play with your toys and love to lie under your activity center. You bat and kick at your toys. You can roll from back to belly and belly to back. If we put you down on the floor you roll around like crazy! Just this past week you discovered your feet and love to grab on to them, I'm sure soon they will end up in your mouth like everything else! You have started tucking your knees up under you like a frog and pushing yourself forward. Daddy thinks that you will be crawling by the end of the month, but I'm betting it will still be awhile! You are so vocal and love to talk to us. I think you're going to be a little chatty Cathy, like Papa says I was when I was little. You have giggled for us a few times, I can't wait until you are full on laughing! The Dr put you on Prevacid this past week for reflux and it's like your a new baby! You are so happy now and rarely ever fuss! You even let mommy get out of the house and run some errands! We are having so much fun watching you learn, grow, and change. You are such a good baby and we love you with all our hearts!
