Emilie - Five Months Old.

Five months! Here we go! 

Emilie is still in size three nappies and at her last weight check she was 14lb 6oz, that was a couple of weeks ago though. Her next appointment is on the 7th of January so I'll have a more up to date weight then. She is mostly wearing 3-6 months clothes although a couple of 0-3 month outfits still fit. 

Eating - Emilie has always been up and down with her milk. One day she loves it and cannot get enough and the next I'm fighting with her at every feed to get her to take any. It's quite a change after having a baby that would finish every drop in the bottle at every feed. On a good day she will take 5 bottles each with 7oz. This month because of her love/hate relationship with milk I started a little introduction to solids. She only has a few spoonfuls at a time because I don't want her to drop her milk intake. So far she has tried, apple, pear, carrot, swede & cauliflower. Oh and broccoli too, which she hated. She seems to be doing quite well with it, I'm not pushing it. I'd rather she took milk than food. 

Sleeping -  Emilie is an angel at night. She is in bed between 6-6.30pm every night. I've tried to get her to stay up later but she just screams until I give in. Nine times out of ten that is her until 6.30am! At the beginning of this month she was waking between 4-5am for a small feed before going back to sleep until 7am ish, throughout the month though she has pushed it forward to 6.30am which I am not complaining about! James was a nightmare with night times so I am loving this! 

She still loves her daytime sleep but will still only sleep for 40 minutes at a time so she tends to have 3 or 4 naps a day. It seems my sleepy baby cannot stay awake for more than two hours. She is the complete opposite to how James was and this has been a complete learning curve for me.

Milestones - Emilie is now reaching for objects and holding onto her toys! I was so worried when she hit three months  old and wasn't showing any sign of hitting that milestone. This month she has come on leaps and bounds! 

She also rolled over for the first time! She had been so close for ages but just couldn't figure out what to do with that arm. Finally though, she figured it out. There was lots of clapping and cheering! 

Loves - Her brother, bath time, her purple activity bear, Mummy doing airplane, singing & being jiggled. 

Hates - Having her nappy changed, getting dressed, early evening, not being the center of attention, being confined in her pram. 

It's hard for me to believe that in just one month I will be sat here writing her six month update. Half a year! Where has that gone?

Happy five months Peanut!
