Eleanor- 5 months

My little nugget is 5 months old today! I can't believe how big she has gotten already.  I look at her little face and I still can't believe I made her.  It's sort of amazing.

Weight: 15 lbs

Size: She is starting to wear 6 months clothes. :( Frowny face due io she is getting so big and time is just going to darn fast! She still fits into 3 months pants but it's a bit of a stretch. For the most part she doesn't like to wear pants anyway and loves to stick her toes in her mouth.

Eat: She is a breakfast girl and does oatmeal in the morning and this week it's pears and sweet potatoes for dinner. She gets really excited for breakfast and opens her mouth really wide and raises her arms.  The food that doesn't get swallowed ends up anywhere and everywhere- in her hair and all over her cloths. Makes me smile just thinking it.

Snooze: She has a pretty strict bed time of 7 p.m. and then wakes up maybe 1-2 times a night and then wakes up to start the day around 8 a.m.  I have to say sleep training was the hardest and the most rewarding experience, since now she gets tired around 6:30 and is fast asleep by 7 pm in her crib.

Baby Milestones: Pretty awesome at tummy time and rolls onto her tummy and sometimes rolls to her back. She is starting to be fascinated with her guard pugs.  Her babbling has gotten into full sentences of babbling and now wakes up at 4 am to practice for about 15 minutes and then goes back to sleep.  Oh and did I mention its high pitched?

Loves: She loves breakfast. Nap time with Momma and or Daddy. Tickling her tummy and if you blow a kiss on her tummy she laughs so hard and then grabs your hair with all of her might.  Loves to bite and has just started hugging.  The hugging warms my heart every time.  She put her arm around Daddy's neck a couple of weeks ago and now she can't stop giving her daddy little bear hugs.

Hates: Strangers- She is a shy bunny.  Startling sounds, she does fine in busy places but cries when a loud noise comes out of no where in a quiet room.

I love being a mommy :)

Awwwwwww What a COOT! She sounds like such a fun little baby! I love the babbling stage--just wait until she starts talking jibberish to you. We've got 3 babies coming in the next 4 months in our family--keeps us from having any for awhile ;)

OH my gosh, your daughter is the cutest thing ever! =) I wrote these for my son and I'm sure one day he'll appreciate it. I know I already do, you think you won't forget the little things, but you always do. I love going back to read them and go, Oh yea, I remember that. Wow it seems so long ago! congrats on the new-ish baby!
