Our 5 month old baby has proven much harder to take pictures of then our 4 month old baby! Amelia is much more wiggly, squirmy, and doesn't like the flash of the camera! We tried several different poses and props to try to keep her still long enough to get a good picture. Well, here are all the pictures anyway! I have a new found respect for photographers.
At 5 months old, Amelia is still trying to sit up but isn't quite there yet. She will roll all over the place to get what she wants. She has also started getting on her hands and knees and will scoot backwards. Everything goes in her mouth...everything! She always has something to say and her noises are so sweet. She is still sleeping 12 hours at night. She takes 2 naps during the day and occasionally skips her 3rd (late afternoon) nap. She is eating solid foods at lunch and dinner and taking 4 (8oz) bottles a day. Sweet potatoes are by far her favorite. And if you don't shovel it in her mouth quick enough, she lets out a good squeal. Matt says she eats like a Billy Goat.
We went for the recheck on her ear. There is still fluid behind the ear but it isn't infected. At her appointment, she weighed 16lbs 6 oz.! Good grief girl! She is now wearing 6-9 month clothing and size 1 shoe. She is growing like a weed. All of her newborn hair has fallen out except 1 curl! Her hair is now a light brown and straight as a board (wonder where she gets that from!).
Matt and I are enjoying every minute with Amelia. She has such a fun personality. She is definitely head strong and independent and pretty dramatic at times. It makes Matt nervous for the teenage years!
Happy 5 months sweet girl!
