5 Months ~Mallory~

She's gotten better at naps.  It's still rough and some days she won't nap, but there have been some days where she has napped so long I've been worried something is wrong with her. lol.

Still no solids.  I did let her lick a strawberry and she enjoyed that.  I'm not to worried about it since she nurses. ut

She has been having more poops the last few weeks.  Before she was maybe once or twice a week- which is totally fine still - but now it's at least once a day.

She's rolling back to belly (I think she may have been doing this last month) and has gone belly to back just a few times. I think it's her head that kind of propels her over.

She's not giving belly laughs yet.  She might give a few single giggles but I want the belly laughs.  I hate to compare kids but Eleanor was doing it at 3 1/2 months.  I'm not worried but I love those laughs.

She's pretty smiley and a mama's girl for sure.  She adores her big sister and I'm pretty sure she's attempted to say Eleanor. But I also think she's said hi before.
I attempted to measure Mallory today and by my measurements she has grown 2 inches in just under a month.   She was sleeping on the floor so it's not like I was measuring a wiggling baby but that seems a lot.  So she's a little under 26" and about 14 1/2 lbs.

She's in size 2 disposable and starting to fit into more of the one size diapers (which means I need to buy more since she shares with Eleanor!)  Clothes are generally in the 3-6 month range with a few maybe in the 6-9 month.

She's still in the rock n play at night.  I moved Eleanor out at 5 months but am not ready to move Mallory.  I didn't even want to move Eleanor when I did so who knows when I'll move Mallory.  When it's no longer safe for her to be in there?  Probably should do it before that though. Maybe I'll move her to the pack n play.  I hate the idea of her being so far away.  Far as in across the hall (over memorial day weekend we stayed in a camper one night and I hated even having her at the foot of the bed.  I need her right by my side. 

She's my sweet baby girl and I am amazed she's already 5 months.

  1. I didn't move Lena out of the RNP until she was 6 months, and that was only because she was starting to try and sit up in it. I'm planning on doing the same with Levi.

    It was great to see you guys today!
