My Baby's 15 Cutest Photos From Month 5

Fern  Winter turned five months old last Friday and we had our monthly photo shoot.  I can’t believe how fast she’s changing and growing (see Month 1 , Month 2 and Month 3 and Month 4 photo shoots to compare)!

This month Fern had her first doctor appointmentdealt with some remodeling, struggled with nap time, and Fern even shared her first laugh with us!

I am documenting Fern’s first year of life by doing a round up of my favorite photos from that month and taking her photo in front of our chalkboard and making a list of her likes and dislikes.

See Fern’s likes and dislikes and best photos from this past month after the jump!

Fern likes:

*grabbing her feet, *looking longingly outside, *Marley, *eating bananas in her snack net, *grabbing everything, *pinching and poking Daddy’s face, *flapping her excited arms

Fern dislikes:

*her new diapers, *too much tummy time, *having parents out of her sight, *Mommy’s sleep

Fern’s best photos from this month:

    5 month photo shoot
    In each month's photo shoot she just looks bigger and bigger. It never ceases to blow my mind.

    My friend Kacie snapped this photo while we were out at coffee one day and the lovely lighting has made it one of my favorites.
  • Future reader 3 of 14
    Future reader
    This little lady has a thing for books and I'm hoping it sticks. I would be perfectly happy having a librarian for a daughter one day.
  • Fern’s first laugh 4 of 14

    This photo was taken about an hour before Fern's first laugh.
  • Like father like daughter 5 of 14
    Like father like daughter
    My husband goes off-roading and we joined him on an excursion this month. Fern stuck to this mini version for her off roading adventures though.
  • First taste of food 6 of 14
    First taste of food
    Gumming on a carrot was Fern's first culinary experience this month and she seemed quite fond of it.
  • Stoic 7 of 14
    I love this photo because it perfectly captures Fern's calm and relaxed face - her usual day-to-day look.
  • Family time 8 of 14
    Family time
    This is a photo from our first family coffee date.
  • Life lesson 9 of 14
    Life lesson
    This month I learned that I should always carry more than one change of clothes. You can just imagine the situation and this is the aftermath - a naked baby with a very guilty grin.
  • Making friends with Marley 10 of 14
    Making friends with Marley
    Fern has discovered Marley this month and she's totally into her and always trying to grab her fur.
  • My very hungry caterpillar 11 of 14
    My very hungry caterpillar
    I often refer to Fern as my very hungry caterpillar, because just like the book, "she was still hungry". Her appetite knows no bounds.
  • My little ham 12 of 14
    My little ham
    Fern has gotten super smiley this month and she'll often ham it up for me when I have my camera out.
  • My pink girl 13 of 14
    My pink girl
    Pre-baby I said I'd never dress my little girl in pink, but it looks so cute on her sometimes, I give in.
  • First high chair experience 14 of 14
    First high chair experience
    This is a photo from Fern's first restaurant experience in a high chair. She was so excited about it and couldn't stop smiling.
