Emily – 5 Months

Wow!  I absolutely cannot believe my baby is already 5 months!!  So much has changed since 4 months!!  It’s crazy!

Here are some pictures I took of her on April 3, 2011

Here are Miss Emily's 5 month stats:

Height:  Not sure.  We didn’t have a doc’s appt. this month.  I’m going to assume she’s around 25”.

Weight: Probably somewhere around 14.5 or 15 pounds

Head Circumference: Not sure (again, no doctor’s appointment)

New Developments: Wow!  Where do I start???  Emily, you have started rolling like a mad woman!  A couple weeks ago, you really started rolling from your back to your stomach.  Then, you would get on your stomach and not know how to get to your back!  You are still rolling like crazy.  You have even started doing it in your sleep.  You now sleep on your tummy pretty much every night.  It scared us pretty bad at first, but we are more comfortable with it now and you seem happy, so we are okay!  You have also started on some “solid” foods.  I started you out on rice cereal from a spoon.  You did pretty good.  But then, I went to a class that said rice cereal is actually not the best first food for you!  So, I started giving you some bananas (today, in fact)!  You seem to really like bananas.  I can’t wait to start making you your own baby food!  You are talking more than ever!  You make all kinds of noises with your mouth.  You also giggle a lot.  You are really playing with your toys more and more.  You can hold on to things pretty well.  You took your first beach trip about a week ago.  You got in the pool and seemed to really enjoy it.  You are in size 2 diapers and wear size 3-6 months clothes.  You are growing like  a weed and we just cannot believe it.  I pray that we remember and cherish this time forever!

Emily – 4 Months

It is absolutely amazing to me to see how much changes in just one month.  Our baby girl is getting soooooo big!  I'm kind of starting to freak out.  I just want to freeze time and cherish this time as long as possible. 

I am a little late getting to this post (her 4 month birthday was on March 3rd), but I have been sooooo busy lately.  Better late than never, I guess!

Here are some pictures I took of her on March 3, 2011:






This flower on her headband looks red but it's really hot pink.  I made it (imagine that)!

Here are Miss Emily's 4 month stats:

Height:  24" (she was 19.3" when she was born)

Weight: 13 pounds, 8 ounces

Head Circumference: 39cm

New Developments: Emily, you are growing like a weed!  You have finally started to enjoy tummy time a little bit more.  You can lift your head during tummy time with ease.  Speaking of which, you rolled over for the first time on February 19th!  I was out of town and I missed it, but you did it for me a couple more times when I got home!  You've only rolled over 3 times but I can tell you are working on it every time you are on your back or tummy.  You are so alert!  You are very playful.  You love to play with some of your toys and you especially love your play mat because of the toys hanging down from it.  You are reaching for objects now, as well.  You put just about everything into your mouth.  This definitely doesn't mean that you're just hungry anymore.  You play with your fingers, hands, and feet a lot.  You have the cutest giggle that you do when we are playing with you.  You LOVE attention.  We can't sit you down for very long.  You are still wearing a size 1-2 diaper.  Although I think you will be moving on to size 2 diapers very soon.  You have yet to have bad diaper rash.  Your bottom has gotten a little reddish, but definitely not super red like a rash.  You aren't quite sleeping through the night yet (or shall I say anymore).  You usually wake up once or twice in the night.  We have started giving you a little formula and you have adjusted well to that.  This past week, I started giving you a little rice cereal as well.  I've only given it to you twice with your bottle and you seem to like it.  Our love for you continues to grow with every single day.  You are our life and mommy & daddy love you to pieces.  Never, ever forget that!

We’ve got a roller on our hands!


I was away on a bachelorette party weekend before last.  And, as my luck would have it, Emily rolled over for the first time!  I was so proud and so upset all at the same time.  Scott wasn’t able to get it on video so I missed the very first roll over.  *sigh*

But, she did it again when I got home!  I definitely had been video taping her and finally gave up so I put the camera down and as soon as I put the camera down and stopped recording, she rolled over!  Again, just my luck!  So a couple days later I tried to catch it on video again and I was successful!  Here’s the vid:

She has only rolled 3 or 4 times.  But, she’s pretty stinkin’ cute with her little bald spots!  I love it!  Needless to say, I am a proud mama!  She’s doing so great and is a happy, chunky little baby!  Praise!

Mamas…..hold your babies tight!

Just when you start to take your child for granted, I want you to stop what you are doing and go read this blog:

My heart breaks for this family.  Emily will be 4 months old on Thursday.  I cannot imagine losing her now.  Or ever for that matter.  There is an auction on Facebook today in honor of their sweet baby girl and there is actually some really cute stuff up for grabs.  Here is the link to the auction:

I don’t know these people.  I just happened to find their blog.  But my heart is broken for them.  I am definitely holding my sweet girl tight today.
