5 months!

October 23, 2010

Isabella is now eating cereal, as you can see from the previous post but she’s doing so many other new things:

She’s sitting!  This picture was taken on October 15th and she was half sitting by herself.  She would sit and then kinda tip to the side a little.  Now (just 8 days later) she can sit by herself for a while before falling over.  We have to be super careful though because she likes to fling herself backwards!

She is super strong.  Pinches, hair pulling and head butts are part of our daily routine now.  She’s lucky she’s cute, speaking of cute, how adorable is the below picture?


She weighed in at (4 days before her 5 month birthday) 14 lbs 4.5 oz and 25 3/4 inches long.  75%tile for height and 50%tile for weight.

She’s cutting her first two teeth.  We got a visual on the bottom left one last night (Oct 22) and I think I saw her bottom right tonight.  She’s not in the best of moods because of this.

She’s wearing 3-6 month clothes.

She’s indicating what toys she wants to play with, she lets us know when she gets bored with something.

She’s sleeping through the night most nights.  We start our routine at 6 and she’s asleep around 7:30 and sleeps until 6 am.  (6pm night food feeding, 6:30 tubbie, 6:45 bottle and story time)

She is up on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth.  If she really wants something, she will launch herself forward to get it.  This act has resulted in a bruise from a collision with a tub of butt paste and her cheekbone.  (I cried!)

She loves to play in the tubbie now.  She likes to faceplant in the water now too (I cried again! See a theme?)

We love this little girl more and more everyday.
