Emerson Quinn // Five Months

OMG, I have a five month old! She's a lively one to boot and sure does make life fun.

Height + Weight | At her 4 month appointment she weighed 14 lbs 14oz and was 25.5 inches. She was in the 70th percent tile for weight and 85th percent tile for height! I would guess that she's put on a few lbs since then.

Health | Growing like a weed! There's been a few things happening with her development. Nothing to worry about now, but we don't want her to fall behind. Since she had such a dramatic entry into the world she is considered a high risk baby for developmental delays. Because of this we're starting to work with a physical therapist to make sure she doesn't fall behind.

Currently she's testing at or above her age, but we don't want to assume that she will in another 3 month, 6 months or a year. So far we're working on sitting unassisted. She's a quick learner. :) Stay tune.

Sleep | Girlfriend is a sleeper! She's still mostly sleeping through the night although every now and then she'll wake up once between 2 and 5 a.m. During the day we get at least two solid two plus hour naps. Makes it easy for mom to get some work done.

Eat | All breast milk. Guess who decided to take the bottle again! All it took was switching brands. We've started to introduce solids  -- banana, sweet potato, mango and rice cereal. Did I mention girlfriend has two teeth on the bottom!

Wear | She's a big girl and is in 6-9 months right now. It also depends on the brand. 

Social | She's a little ham! So many little squeals. I'm just waiting for the full belly laugh. We traveled down to So Cal a few weeks ago and she was spoiled.

Baby Gear | We're loving our bob stroller, Fisher-Price Rainforest Jumperoo and bumbo right now.

Milestones | The last few months are a blur with the house reno, but mom, baby and roxy are troopers!

+ First two teeth!

+ Traveled to So Cal for the first time.

Started eating solids

+ Rolling over more and more

+ She discovered her toes and thinks they are pretty cool.

+ more and more vocal everyday

Postpartum | That's a post for another day.

18-20 weeks

  1. Two teeth!? No way! And Wyatt is begging for food...need to make that happen soon!

  2. aww she is so cute! i cant believe she already has two teeth!!! are you making her food? xo jillian - cornflake dreams

    1. I can't believe she has teeth either. Yes, I'm making her food. I have the baby breeza. I love that it steams and blends.

  3. She's getting so big! Isn't it amazing how quickly they grow... way too fast. I'm still trying to figure out if sleep is a big difference between girls and boys. Our little guy didn't start sleeping long stretches until closer to a year. Ugh! All my friends with little girls had great sleepers. I love seeing the IG pictures of your adventures!

  4. Mine just had his four month check up and he's 15lbs. Aren't they the cutest at this age?!? She looks absolutely beautiful!
