Georgia - 5 Months

Georgia - Five Months

Today little Love Bug you are FIVE MONTHS old!

We've passed the newborn stage, we're done with the infant stage, and now we have a full fledged baby on our hands.  Where has the time gone, Little One?

You are in size 3 Pampers. You still fit in 2s but we bumped you up because we had a ton on hand.  I just borrowed a few cloth diapers from a friend though and we're going to give them a try.  I'm SUPER excited about this!

3-6 or 6-9. Sometimes 3-6 can be too small and sometimes 6-9 can be too big. It just depends on the brand really

So far you have had rice cereal, avocado, carrots, sweet potatoes, apples, apple mixed with banana and pear, a few nibbles of ice cream, a few bits of Mexican rice, and a lick of a strawberry. You've loved every single bite!

Anything you can get your hands on. Literally! I say you have "happy hands". You really like small stuffed animals, books, and your Sophie.

If we're at home you will typically do a 2 hour morning nap and a 1 hour afternoon nap.  Although, if we're out and about at any of your nap times you just catch up later in the day, dose off and on while running errands, or skip it.  Usually all your total naps will equal 3 hours but you can go on less.

Before unswaddling you would do 11 or more every night.  Now you do 10.5 hours.  I'm not sure how unswaddling shaved off 30 minutes, I wish I could have that half hour back, but I'm not going to split hairs with you at this point.  I'm still very happy with our nighttime sleep patterns.  Although you are going through a rough patch the past 2ish days or so...I'm not sure what's going on but you keep waking up around midnight seemingly upset about somethings.  Prayers please!!!

On a normal day you will eat 4 meals that range from 7.5oz - 9oz. That sounds like a lot of ounces but it's really not all that much because you really only eat 4 times a day. Sometimes I will "top you off" if bed time is going to come more than an hour after your last bottle.

What's new:
Your toes - totally fascinated!
Grabby - You want to hold everything in sight and put it straight in your mouth
Grunting/Crying/Screaming if you want something out of your reach.
Talking to Perry

You like:
Perry and pretty much everything on your "new" list
Bath time

You dislike:
Cleaning your face
Cleaning out your nose
Getting out of the bath

and, just because I'm becoming extremely sappy and emotional about newborn Georgia, here she is in all of her one day old sweetness!

I claim every month is just my favorite.  Well, it's happened again!  Five months is officially my favorite month.  So fat and so happy!

Your dad and I love you, sweet girl!

Happy 5 Months Georgia! She is such a cutie pie! I agree, 5 months is my absolute favorite so far. I do miss the sweet newborn stage but it's so much fun now that she knows who we are and interacts so much. My guess is that it will only keep getting better. :)

Rachel and John said...

I agree! 5 months is my favourite so far too. Henry is having some sleep regression (dare I call it that?) too lately. I hope it's just a phase for both of us!

absolutely adorable :)

How is it that she's just more precious with each update?! It just doesn't seem possible each month that she could get cuter!! Love how she's grabbing at her feet in her 5 month picture as to pose for you and prove how much she's loving her toes at this point in life. :)

Can't wait to hear what you think of cloth diapering!

aw! Happy 5 months miss Georgia!

Kelli said...

I love, love, love her chair picture this month! Don't you just love how much she loves her feet? You caught some great smiles, too!

Amanda Klein said...

Love these! And love how you're documenting everything! I'm totally getting ideas!!

Cecilly said...

Hey I was gonna say how much I love her chair picture also!!! It is so freaking cute. The apartment is just about ready for visitors! I can't wait. I'll keep you posted. :) I love that girl!

Lyndsey said...

Ditto everyone else - the chair picture is too cute! I love the outfit and bow color combo.

Isn't it crazy how unbelievably flexible babies are??!

Aw, she's getting so big! Wyatt went through a rough patch of sleep around 5 months too, but he got over it - maybe a growth spurt or something? Praying she starts sleeping again soon! You'll have to let me know how you like the cloth diapers - we're going to give them a try on Wednesday I think.
