Day 24: Five Months!

For real!?  Five months!

Here she is...

Weight:  At last appointment she was 15 pounds.  It's been two weeks, so I feel confident she's gained some since then (hehe).

Major Milestones:  She can roll over from back to front and front to back, but it's a fairly rare occasion as she much rather prefers doing "exercises"....the girl is all about raising her head and her legs and working on those abs!  Still no laugh, though she smiles a whole lot.  I'm thinking the laugh is coming any day now...we'll see!  And in the above picture she's doing one of her favorite new things (sucking her bottom lip).

Other:  Up until this past week she was a solid 8 hour per night sleeper.  Then all of a sudden this past week she's been waking up several times a night.  Typically she'll cry a minute, then she'll get her paci and go back to sleep.  However, by the third time of crying after waking she's ready to eat.

Speaking of, girl can put down some milk these days.  She's eating A LOT.  Good thing we're starting solids soon enough, huh?

On to naps...she's not into naps.  At all.  I lay her down between 9:30 and 10 am and she'll sleep for maybe 30 minutes, if we're lucky.  Then we'll try for a second nap between (generally) 1 and 2 pm...and she doesn't always go for that one either.  Ahhh, well...she's been a good night sleeper (ahem, until this past week ;)

And just because I had this fun ribbon lying around...

We love you, Elise big 5 month old!


  1. She is so beautiful at every age, and Grandmommy and Granddaddy love her very much, as we do all of you...

  2. Wow!! That really did fly by. I feel like it was just yesterday we were there and you were still pregnant! She is a super cute big girl!

  3. ADORABLE! That bottom lip thing is too precious! And my guess about the 5 months and waking thing is teething...both my boys got their teeth at 5.5 months and nothing else would EVER make them wake up at night except for new teeth. Just cuz you can't see them, doesn't mean they don't feel them. A little baby tylenol at night might help??? And I SO made some burp cloths from that very same ribbon! Used one today actually ;) Fun!
    Keep the pics coming!


leave us some love!
