Mckinlee 5 Months

My sweet baby turned 5 months yesterday!! Geez.  I am going to have an emotional mommy break down this month with all this growing up.  Mckinlee is changing before my very eyes every day, and I find myself getting teary eyed over how fast her infancy is flying by.

Mckinlee at 5 Months:

Sleeping:  You are still sleeping from around 7:30-8 at night till 6-7 am the next morning.  You have stopped whining in the middle of the night, and you are sleeping like a champ again. We are still doing eat, wake, sleep with you, but you are starting to refuse a few naps. I am currently trying to get you on a good three nap schedule. You generally nap for about an hour in a half.

Eating: You are still exclusively breast feeding. I tried cereal with you one night, but you just gagged.  We will try again next month.  You are eating every 2 1/2- 3 hours, and you nurse one side for about twenty-thirty minutes.

Size: 0-3, 3, 3-6 clothing. Size 1 diaper.  You were 11.3 last month, and you are still so tiny!

Exciting New Things:
  • Your looks have really started to change. You used to be dead on daddy, but now you are really taking on a lot of my characteristics.  People always say you look just like me now. 
  • You roll everywhere.  You zoom across the room so quickly.
  • You scoot all over your crib, and you even try to scoot towards toys.
  • Everything goes in your mouth, and you drool all the time.
  • You are starting to be okay with other people holding you.
  • You reach for everything.
  • You talk and squeal and smile all the time.
  • You are still very easy going.
  • You still only like the binky when you are trying to sleep.
  • You still hate car rides.
  • You had your first long road trip this month to Michigan
  • You went to the beach for the first time (Lake Michigan). 
  • Whenever someone else is holding you and you hear me talk you cry.
  • You think Caleb is hilarious now. You love to watch him, and he never phases you.

You are such a perfect princess and I love you so much I could eat you with a spoon!!
