Amelia, you're 5 months old!!
I KNOW...we can't believe it either!
You weigh 15 lbs - 11 ounces. You had just dirtied your diaper before I put you on the scale...I'm fairly certain some of that weight was from your diaper alone. HA!
You're 25.5 inches long. You're in the 90th percentile for both weight and length.
Dr. A mentioned how happy of a baby you are...you were all smiles for her. :)
You had to get two shots at your last appointment. You only cried when they first stuck you and then as soon as I picked you up, you stopped crying. And Mommy didn't cry at all this time!!
You're wearing size 1-2 diapers.
You're in size 3-6 month clothes (except for your undershirts, I had to buy 6-9 month for length!)
You're sleeping 7 hours at night and sometimes you throw in an extra hour or two for Mommy to sleep in.
You have moved from the bassinet by Mommy's bed to the pack-n-play by Mommy's bed. :) I'm just not ready to put you in your crib yet!
You still eat 6 ounces every 4 hours - during the day.
Dr. A said we could introduce you to rice cereal!
You didn't like it. At. All. You make this gagging sound like it's the worst thing you've ever had in your life. Can't say that I blame you - that stuff smells terrible.
This was your face after we stopped feeding it to you.
You're "talking" a lot. You have a deep voice - I think you're going to be an alto, just like your Mommy. :)
You've started doing this fake cough - cracks us up every time!
You love to pull your shirt or dress up. It's your new favorite thing to do. Like Mother like Daughter.
You're reaching for things and if we lay your paci on your chest, you will pick it up and put it in your mouth all by yourself.
Dr. A said to up your tummy-time to several times a day. Evidently your disinterest in rolling over isn't such a good thing. We aren't worried though...we know you won't be 16 years old and unable to roll over. HA! You will do it when you're ready.
You have discovered that Mommy has long hair. And you like to hold onto it with a death grip! :)
It was so warm last week, we were able to take our first stroll around the neighborhood...you really enjoyed it. Looking forward to many more this spring/summer!
You're doing well with sitting up for a little bit on your own (on the couch or in your chair).
But as soon as I look away...you do this.
We're just madly in love with you, sweet girl.
We love you so much it hurts.
