Katherine [Month 5]

Oh my baby girl. I looked at you this month and realized that you are no longer a baby, but you are an infant. Your personality is starting to show more and more. You are so sweet, and loving, while also being busy and inquisitive. You are such a studier and thinker…just like daddy!

Measurements: our scale showed 28″ and 16.5#

Diapers: still in size 2’s! We use swaddlers during the day, and dry max at night, since you’ve been sorta leaking through the swaddlers.

Clothes: all 3-6 months! They are still pretty big on you, so I think you’ll be in these for a while.

Schedule: it’s been pretty varied this month. Your teeth are really giving you fits!!

Sleeping: your sleeping has been unpredictable. Some nights you sleep great, others you are up and down. Your naps have been the same way, ranging from 30 minutes to 3 hours.

Meals: you are officially on solids!! Whoo hoo!!! Twice a day you get whatever fruit/veggie we are on! So far you have had:

avocado-you did NOT care for at all!!

banana-you LOVED eating banana, it has been your favorite fruit!

peas-you adored them!

zucchini-this was the first homemade food you have had, and at first you were off put by the texture, but now it seems to be your favorite

I usually give you your veggies with a touch of butter or olive oil and salt. I mean, who likes just plain vegetables?! You are also still eating 4-6 4oz bottles of Similac Spit-Up Formula daily. You love whenever a mealtime rolls around.

Favorites: Sophie!! Much to mommy’s chagrin, you adore chewing on Sophie’s head and legs, and you ESPECIALLY love squeaking her. Especially at church when Pastor Allen is preaching. You are also loving Sally Snail. We will place her on the floor just out of your reach, and you will creep over to her to make her make noise. You have also started playing longer amounts of times in your excersaucer. Your favorite toys on it are the rattle sun, teething star, and hand puppet.

Dislikes: your bottle being empty. When you see your bottles, but you are not eating, you start to get pretty upset. When we lay you down, and you want to be held, you will start to fuss. Even with cutting teeth, you are still such a happy baby!!
