5 Month Stats

Sarah now weighs 16 whole pounds. She's nearly as heavy as Penny (the dog) now. Just one more pound to go. she's also 25 1/2 inches long.  Both of these are roughly in the 70th percentile. Not too bad. She also started eating sweet potatoes yesterday! She didn't seem too confused by them and eventually gave us some baby bird faces. So I take that to mean she liked them. (FYI when your baby spits up after eating sweet potatoes it will be orange.)

Things she does now

  • She can sit unassisted for about 20 seconds or so.
  • Has this new cry that has a bit of a vibrato to it and sometimes she sounds like a sheep baaa-ing.
  • She can now touch the floor in her jumperoo.
  • She still wears size 2 diapers.
  • She can roll belly to back and back to belly. In fact she did this across the room when she didn't like where I set her.
  • She can creep (usually backwards) on a hardwood floor, not on carpet yet.
  • She pets any animal that comes close to her.
  • Disney music is still a soothing thing.
  • She stays awake for about 2 - 3 hours at a time.
  • We may retire the play gym soon but for now she still likes it.
  • Toys hold her attention much longer and she likes discovering new ones.
  • Still not patient enough for more than one book in a row.
  • She is desperately trying to crawl. She wants to be mobile so badly. (Eeek that means baby proofing)
  • There are now PLENTY of stylish headbands for her to wear! What can I say? Mama gets into making these things.
  • Socks are her enemy. She wants to eat her toes.
  • She has been to the church nursery and likes it. No paging the parents to pick her up ... yet.
  • Still fighting sleeping. Nap time is not as bad as bed time though. If you don't know she does this it might seem odd.
  • There are plenty of smiles to go around.
