Over 12 pounds (about 12lbs 3 oz according to our at home scale)
About 23-24 inches long
Still on Prevacid and we were bumped up in dosage since she has grown. She's still doing great and takes her medicine well at night. We will re-evaluate keeping her on/taking her off the medicine at her 6 month appt. Still not much spitting up for the most part.
She is still eating well. She eats every 2 ish hours (except at night) and she only eats for about 5-10 minutes.
She's still doing pretty well although we've noticed when we travel she doesn't sleep as well or as long. She normally takes 3 naps, an 1.5 hour morning (around 10) and afternoon nap (around 2) and then around 45 min-1 hr nap around 5 or 6. Bedtime... hmm. I do her last feeding at 9 and put her down after that. The past few nights she has rolled to her belly and we had her swaddled. So then we starting leaving an arm out so that when she rolled to her belly she would be able to maneuver. She has always been a mover and flails her arms in her sleep. When we leave her arm out she wakes up around 12:30 or 1 and won't go back to sleep. We tested this theory and left her all the way swaddled another night this week and she only woke up once to eat around 4:30. I am over waking up twice to feed her at night but I don't feel comfortable leaving her all the way swaddled. I just hope she will get used to having an arm out and control her movements and learn how to sleep through it? Here's to hoping!!!
Little girl is still in 3 month clothing. However, she has pooped out of some of her most recent diapers so I think we are about to switch to size 2 diapers.
Things she's loving:
-Chewing on things
-When we say "mama" and "dada" to try to get her to say it
-Her Jumparoo (when we put pillows underneath for her feet :)
-When Daddy makes a duck noise
-When Mommy does "This little piggy"
-Spunky (a little stuffed animal dog rattle)
-Listening to stories and music
-Her play mat, swing and changing table
-Kicking her feet still
-Holding her feet and chewing on her toes
Things she's NOT loving:
-Her car seat.... but it is getting better on short trips (to church and back, around town)
-She rolls to her belly but she can't remember how to get back to her back so she fusses until someone rolls her over again- spoiled stinker.
-The BRIGHT sunlight. She closes her eyes and starts whining when its in her eyes.
-The cold ocean water (haha...so far!)
She is rolling over from back to belly all the time now. Even taking her 5 month picture she wanted to roll over onto her belly! She started this about a week after she turned 4 months. No teeth yet but still drooling and chewing on everything! Still haven't started rice cereal... but probably will this month.
Firsts this month:
Going out on the beach!
Feeling the ocean water- not a fan.
Meeting Uncle Patrick :)
Spending a week with Marshall's side of the family
Rolling over (back to belly)
Scrunching her nose when smiling (Daddy LOVES this smile!)
Being in her Jumparoo- loves it!
We just love this sweet girl and can't imagine life without her! She brings us so much joy every day!
