How did we possibly get to 5 months already with this sweet girl?!? Time is flying even faster this time around and I just wish it would all slow down. 5 months seems so much older, 3 and 4 months still seemed like a really new baby but 5 months seems like we will be crashing into 1 year and toddler time too soon.
At five months Emerald is 26.3 inches long (84% ) and 16 lbs 5 oz (66%). These measurements were taken almost two weeks late so she was a bit smaller at exactly 5 months.
Same as previous months Emmy is mostly breast fed, with one bottle of formula a day. The biggest change is that I went back to work this month. Emmy spends most of the day with her grandparents and is starting to take a bottle better.
Emerald has also been working a lot on sitting up, she can balance on her own for about 5 seconds so we are making progress.
She is also doing great at tummy time and assisted standing.
All worries about her vision have been alleviated as she has been reaching and grabbing objects like an expert.
This month she started rolling both directions although not very often. Emmy is fairly content to hang out on her tummy
Even though this month meant back to work there was still a lot of fun too. Emmy has been enjoying watching Broncos games with her brother.
We got to take both kiddos to Vail for Oktoberfest. We all had a blast, I still can’t believe how well Emmy travels and is happy to just hang out with us wherever and sleep in the carrier.
I marvel all the time how sweet this girl is and how much I love her. She is light and joy and sweetness. It has been the best time getting to know her personality more and more.
