OMG, I have a five month old! She’s a lively one to boot and sure does make life fun.
Height + Weight | At her 4 month appointment she weighed 14 lbs 14oz and was 25.5 inches. She was in the 70th percent tile for weight and 85th percent tile for height! I would guess that she’s put on a few lbs since then.
Health | Growing like a weed! There’s been a few things happening with her development. Nothing to worry about now, but we don’t want her to fall behind. Since she had such a dramatic entry into the world she is considered a high risk baby for developmental delays. Because of this we’re starting to work with a physical therapist to make sure she doesn’t fall behind.
Currently she’s testing at or above her age, but we don’t want to assume that she will in another 3 month, 6 months or a year. So far we’re working on sitting unassisted. She’s a quick learner. 🙂 Stay tune.
Sleep | Girlfriend is a sleeper! She’s still mostly sleeping through the night although every now and then she’ll wake up once between 2 and 5 a.m. During the day we get at least two solid two plus hour naps. Makes it easy for mom to get some work done.
Eat | All breast milk. Guess who decided to take the bottle again! All it took was switching brands. We’ve started to introduce solids — banana, sweet potato, mango and rice cereal. Did I mention girlfriend has two teeth on the bottom!
Wear | She’s a big girl and is in 6-9 months right now. It also depends on the brand.
Social | She’s a little ham! So many little squeals. I’m just waiting for the full belly laugh. We traveled down to So Cal a few weeks ago and she was spoiled.
Milestones | The last few months are a blur with the house reno, but mom, baby and roxy are troopers!
+ First two teeth!
+ Traveled to So Cal for the first time.
+ Started eating solids
+ Rolling over more and more
+ She discovered her toes and thinks they are pretty cool.
+ more and more vocal everyday
Postpartum | That’s a post for another day.
