5 Months

Oh my goodness can you believe I have a five month old?!?Where has the time gone? I just love this little girl so much. Each month that passes I love her more and more. Here are this months stats:

Weight: 15 pounds 1 ounce 42 percentile
Height: 26 inches 73rd percentile

This month has been quite different in this little girl's life. There haven't been any huge milestones, but I will give the usual what happenins of Averie.

She started NOT sleeping through the night. No bueno. It has been a really hard adjustment to go from getting a full night's rest to waking up every 2 to 3 hours again. I am not sure what the cause is, but this little girl just won't sleep through. It is hard to manage because I am working and I am not sure what is going on at Daycare during the day. It's hard to work with her schedule when I'm not with her:( Oh well I'm sure she will get back on track eventually.
She is starting to enjoy rice cereal. I give it to her mostly in the evening to try to help her sleep-try being the key word. At first she hated the stuff now she eats the whole bowl. Yum yum!
She loves animals. Whenever Sergeant or anything fury gets close enough for her to grab, she reaches out and tries to grab hold. She has snagged Sergeant's ears a few times. He doesn't seem to mind though.She is fascinated by everything. When something has her attention, good luck getting her to acknowledge you, or getting her to look at the camera.She still isn't really rolling over. She rolled that one time, but that is it. She is perfectly content staying on her back or on her stomach. Probably because she knows mom will flip her if she starts to cry.She is getting very coordinated with her hands. If I give her a toy, she will grab it with out the bad depth perception looking grasps.
She LOVES to stand. She has always been this way so this isn't really new this month, but now when you let her stand she tries to start walking. It is the cutest thing ever. She starts kicking like a mad woman and leans forward hoping to get where she wants to go.She has outgrown her car seat head support thingy. Sad.

She has outgrown all her newborn shoes. Sad very sad!

She loves to be tickled. I love to hear the laugh out louds from her.Her hands must taste like chocolate because I can't keep them out of her mouth!She is getting to be quite the little chunky munk. I love her rolls. So cute. She has learned how to pull her binky out of her mouth and almost put it back in. she usually puts it in backwards. She is very close to holding the bottle on her own too.

She is very close to sitting up on her own. She is still a little top heavy but, I think by next month she will have it down.
I think she gets cuter every month! Look at this doll!Next month I will try to take more pictures. I was a little bit sad going through my pics that I didn't have pictures of everything I wanted. I guess that's what happens when you are living on less sleep!

So cute! I love all the updates you do. She is a doll I love how much hair she has!! Lily had the same problem going from sleeping for 5 hours at a time to 2 to 3 I didn't know if it was teeth, or more naps during the day, or what but it passed in a few days I think. Hopefully it will for you too. what a cutie tho, do you make all those bows?

Hi Kellie, she is just adorable..I am just guessing she is teething? that would majorly disrupt sleep and also account for the fingers in the mouth! She is about the right age..
Hang in there, enjoy each day, they grow way too fast..
