Almost 6 months old now but we’ll ignore that little fact for the sake of this post, ok? OK!

Age: 5 months

Weight: 10lbs 14oz (under 5th percentile for full term babies, 6th percentile for adjusted age)

Length: unknown

Size: Baby clothes are so nonuniform in size! She wears 3-6 month clothes. But there are some 12 month clothes that fit her! Size 1 diapers.

Hair: Definitely thinner. She lost a lot of hair on the top of her head due to cradle cap. That’s finally cleared up and it’s starting to grow back but she looks like a little old man – granted, a cute little old man!

Sleeping:Oh yes…sleep. Gone is our good sleeper. Now that she’s learned to roll over from her back to her tummy, that’s all she wants to do in her crib. She hasn’t learned that she won’t sleep on her tummy yet so it’s a fight to get her to stay on her back and go to sleep. Fun times!

Eating: She’s still at almost 4oz every 3-4 hours.

Activities: She’s found her feet! And she’s figured out how to roll from her back to her tummy. She’s also great at pulling apart her toy rings.

Favorite Toys: Anything that makes noise – especially her singing crab and crinkle toys. She absolutely loves her jumper even though she’s still too short for it.

Dislikes: Going down for the night (still) and sleeping in her crib.

Likes: Blowing raspberries, standing up and her feet!
