Charlotte - Five Months Old

Charlotte at five months old:
  • You are are 16 pounds!
  • You are starting to bust out of your 0-3 months and moving solidly into your 3-6 months size clothes.  You have a very round tummy and your thighs have rolls for days! Your chipmunk cheeks that both your brother and sister had are starting to appear! 
  • You are full of smiles especially for your brother and sister and are starting to talk a lot more to us! You have just discovered this growl noise and how to scream when you are excited! You also squeal when you see your brother. 
  • We were able to get you out of the swaddle and into a sleep sack at night.  You are getting really tall and we are nervous you are going to outgrow your bassinet soon. Not ready to merge your brother and sister together in the same room.  Sounds like trouble! 
  • We pulled out the jumpy for you and you love jumpy around while your brother and sister bring you toys. 
  • You are starting to sit up on your own with the boppy around you. You eventually teeter over, but you are pretty good at sitting up for awhile.
  • You are still such a rockstar when we go out in the stroller/car seat.
  • Still breastfeeding really well and you have a pretty set schedule of five feedings a day.
  • You are basically SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT with a couple of binky replacements around 5-6am!!!! Now if we could get your mother to sleep before 1am, all would be right in the world. 
  • Your brother and sister both are very excited to wake you up in the morning and love to check on you all the time. 
  • You have fully committed to the Nuby binky. It's so funny how all three of you chose different binkies! 
  • Your hair is starting to come back in after you lost all of it. You have a little fuzzy head now. 
  • You have discovered your toes and think they are the best thing since sliced bread! You like to grab onto any toy and suck on it. Which is resulting in a huge amount of drool. 
  • We can't imagine our family without you and love you so much!
*You turned five months old on November 10th.

  4. She is too adorable for words! Thank you for your comment over at Team Skelley. I think I am just as excited about dance class as the toddler is! I danced when I was younger and I told my husband that I was going to become one of those crazy dance moms over in the corner doing the dance routine with the kids! Happy Thanksgiving!
