Guess who is five months old already?
I literally cannot believe she is actually here, let alone a whole five months old already. Every time the 30th rolls around it almost seems bitter sweet since everything from her conception to her arrival were giant surprises to everyone in our family.
After two planned children, a surprise baby is certainly a whole new can of worms, and I must say, she has been the most pleasant surprise in our lives!
So lets do a little progress rundown!
Yesterday she went to her pediatrician check up and she is weighing in at 13 pounds and 2 ounces, up from 9 pounds 3 ounces at her last appointment in late July.
She is 23 3/4 inches tall, almost a full two feet. She is growing like a weed! I can tell from all her clothes she is outgrowing! We are finally moving into the 3-6 month clothes and cloth diapering almost full time since she is fitting better into her cloth diapers. Being a heavy wetter at nighttime, we are still using disposables overnight to avoid wetting issues, and a giant mess at 2am! In those diapers she has moved up into a size 2.
She has had cereal about 4 times, the last time being last weekend and I think she was kind of getting the hang of eating it but still isn’t too interested. We will try again in another week to see if she is interested. But overall she is still 100% breastfed besides the tiny bit of cereal. It certainly feels like an accomplishment!
She is sitting up for short periods of time, and turning herself into a pretzel all the time, and she still loathes tummy time. I can get her to do it for a whole… maybe 90 seconds before the hysterics come. By the sound of it, you would think someone was killing her. Although the more we do tummy time, the longer I can get the stretches. Some days we can get almost two full minutes. HA!
Overall she is a smiley little girl who brightens up everyones day! At least all she comes in contact with.
Her brothers love her to death and want to play with her constantly, even while she is napping. Ha!
Oh, and some of her newest nicknames include
- Gorditta (yes, like the taco)
- Baby Geddy
- Chub Chubs
We are a big nick name family… LOL
