Five Months

My baby girl is five months. FIVE MONTHS you guys!!!! How is this even possible?! I know I shouldn't be thinking about this but next month she's going to be six months. Half a YEAR!!!! Ugh.. depressing! I mean, don't get me wrong. I'm glad she's healthy and growing but this whole time-thing is no friend of mine. I miss that little newborn babe :(  

Size Diapers: Size Two. 

Size Clothes: 3 Months (three months is getting a bit small length wise) & 3 to 6 months. 

Eyes: They are still blue but Robby and I see hazel around her pupils. Him and I must be colorblind because no one else seems to see it. Not even her doctor ha.

Hair: Brown with a little bit of reddish tint. Her hair is growing and I'm LOVING IT. She has the cutest chickadee hair! 

Sleeping: Ehh.. She usually wakes up around 4 or 5 wanting a bottle. As soon as we give it to her, her eyes starts to close. If she seems reallllyy sleepy then I'll take the bottle away and put her back in her bed. 

Eating: She's been drinking 6oz (Gerber Soothe) and eats Earth's Best organic oatmeal for breakfast and dinner. We are selling our house so things have been pretty hectic, but when I get some time I want to mash up a little bit of banana to mix in with her oatmeal. I think she's ready for another ounce as well. 


  • Rolls from back to belly and is learning how to roll from her belly to her back. 
  • She's not the best at it yet but she can grab her pacifier and stick it in her mouth. 
  • She's been grabbing her right ear a lot. I thought she was grabbing it because of it hurting from teething, but her doctor said she recognizes she has a ear, that's why she's playing with it. 
  • She chews on her toes! ha ha. 
  • She recognizes her bottle and spoon/bowl when it's oatmeal time. 
  • She reaches out for her bottle and is learning how to grab it. 
  • She recognizes her name.
  • She got her FIRST rash :( I bought her a soft faux fur blanket from Nordstrom's and when I laid her on it while I was straightening my hair, I started to notice the left side of her face turning red. By the time we went to the doctor's it was REALLY red and hot. We returned the blanket and it went away by the next morning. 
  • She's starting to arch her back.

Nicknames: I've been calling her by her name and I call her "love" a lot. For Example: "you tired love?!" :)

Her/Our Loves:
To smile. Smile at her and she'll more than likely smile back at ya :)
We just got her the violet colored bumbo.
I'm pretty sure she has a favorite Disney Princess already. Ariel! One of my favorites. I sing "Part of Your World" to her almost every day and she'll stop and listen to me.
She loves her Dumbo Book.
When her blanket touches her face when she's trying to go to sleep. She loves her Lou Lou & Company swaddle blanket. 
Earth's Best Oatmeal.
Her bottle.
Getting her diaper changed.
Her baby videos by littlebabybum on Youtube.
I didn't think she would take another pacifier because she's had the same one since she was born, but we bought her the Natursutten Pacifiers and she LOVES IT. Thank goodness because I love those pacifiers!
I've been loving Madeline's Box pacifier clips.
We love Billy Bibs.
Her fingers. She hasn't been talking much and I think it's because she always has a hand (or two!) in her mouth. 
Her feet.

Being left alone.
When we get out of the bath.
When I put clothes on her. I have to do it quick! If she's in a good mood then she's okay.
When I take the spoon out of her mouth to get more oatmeal.
When people burp or sneeze loud. She gets scared and will sometimes cry :(
She gets fussy when she's tired.
