Gimme five

I can't believe Em is already FIVE FREAKIN' MONTHS OLD! FIVE, people! Next thing I know, I'll be blogging, "I can't believe Em is already FIVE YEARS OLD! And I can't believe I've been blogging for NINE YEARS!"

A good one

You know what else I have a hard time believing? Em is already 17 lbs! At the Urgent Care visit a few weekends ago she weighed in at 17 lbs. with a sleeper on, so I'm sure she's 17 lbs. by now. Totally not surprised anymore when folks see her and say, "She's well-fed." You know it.

Puff Baby

I've packed up most of her 3-6 month clothing, and there are some 6-month outfits that no longer work for her. High-waters are not a good look at any age.

We got some real giggles from Em last weekend. Best. Sound. Ever. Can't wait until we hear them every day.

Em has another new trick. She no longer stays in the same spot as where we lay her down at night. She kicks her legs up and scoots all around her crib. She starts out at in the exact center, then we find her perpendicular against the top or bottom. I finally had to put our breathable bumper in so as to keep her cute little limbs from getting stuck.

So that's the latest. Hard to believe that five months ago we could only imagine our baby girl. And five months later she's our reality.

  11. happy 5-monthday, em!

    i have to admit that i really love reading your blogs about em because it reminds me of what the bean was up to exactly a year ago.

    they change and grow and learn so fast, it's amazing to see what a difference a year can make.

  12. Em is looking so cute! For some reason the 5 months have gone by slowly for me as I watch Em. My nephew turned one and he's is just shooting up! He's growing so quickly. I love that Em is still tiny. :)

  20. It seems like you were just telling us that you were pregnant! 5-6 months is one of my fave ages. Seriously, she has such SMOOCHABLE cheeks. And the dimples in her elbows make me melt right off this couch. You guys are so lucky! What an awesome time for you.

  21. time does fly by, doesn't it?

    and ellie's a little chunksters too. at 3 months she was 15.6 lbs. the nurse joked that my breastmilk was like steroids for my baby. lol! we have her 4 month visit next week. i'm wondering how much she weighs now...

    but i LOVE her fat rolls. i pry apart her wrist fat practically every day and wonder how she gets any blood circulation in her hands. :)

    em is such a beautiful happy little baby! can't wait to meet her one day!
