Five Months Old
My Appearance: I am l little over 15 pounds (I was exactly 15 pounds a week before). I am 24 ½ inches long and growing everyday. My hair is starting to grow a little bit more and is looking blonde, although a few people say it looks red sometimes. I have finally rubbed a bald spot on the back of my head. My eyebrows are very blonde and so you can’t really see those either. My eyes are still blue but they have gotten a lot lighter then they were last month. I have a very round belly and rolls everywhere. My legs and arms have about 3 rolls a piece. I am starting to grow out of my 3 month clothes but it is still a little cold here so Mommy says no more growing until it gets warm so I can start wearing my summer clothes that are all 6 month clothes.
Milestones: This was a month of just practicing all that I have learned. I smile and laugh all the time. I practice holding my head up and sitting up (with support) every day. I am also starting to put a little more weight on my legs. When I get tired of doing all this work I cry and arch my back so Mommy knows I am done working out for a while. I love watching Blaiden and that is something I never get tired of but I think he gets tired of entertaining me because he only does it for a few minutes at a time.
Daily Routine: My routine is pretty consistent these days, I wake up around 7 eat 5 times and take 3 naps before I got to bed around 8 and sleep all night long. I got to go outside and play a little for the first time and I really enjoyed that. I am taking all my naps in my crib now and it makes me sleep so much better.
Special Events: The biggest thing that happened this month is I got to meet my Grandma and my uncles Casey and Phillip. They came and spent a few days with me and my family and we had the best time. I got to celebrate my first St. Patrick’s Day and wore a very cute outfit. Also just after my 4 month birthday I got to move into my room full time. Daddy and Mommy finally got some construction done in the basement so I could finally sleep in there full time.
