5 Months, really? How can that be? It seems like it was just yesterday that we brought her home. I may complain about how fast she is growing, but oh what fun we are having at this stage.
She now weighs a little over 16 pounds (the scale pic below was at her 4 month visit...but just 3 weeks later at a sick visit, she had gained 2 pounds) and is wearing size 9 months! She has lost most of her "wild hair" (sniff sniff). She is drinking 8 oz. at almost every feeding. She loves to play, especially with her big brother. Her eyes are always on him and will practically turn all the way around if she can to keep up with him. She has several toys and activities that she likes, but I think her favorite is the froggy exersaucer...she seems to get a kick out of the challenge of grabbing at the frog, pushing the carrot down, and conquering the dragonfly! She can spend 30 minutes there entertaining herself. Ella also really likes to be read to and reaches and grabs at each page of the book. She very much likes her bedtime routine and knows if it is not being followed. Bedtime is a cinch with her, as long as you follow the routine! Atta girl Ella Grace!
