Five Months

Dear Emma,
On Monday you were five months old! Once again, I can't believe how quickly time flies with you around! It seems like I just wrote you a monthly post. You are changing so much, and this is definitely my favorite age! You just celebrated your first Christmas. You were such a good traveling girl-you went to both grandparent's houses and were sooo good and loving! Let's look at some of the things you are up to lately:

-You eat baby food/rice cereal twice a day-it's one jar a day. You loved all fruits, and now you are eating veggies-you've had sweet potatoes and green beans. You seem to like all foods. We (mommy and daddy and Mrs. Kris are adjusting to your diaper changes).
-You are still drinking 5-6 bottles per day at 6 1/2 ounces each.
-You are still breastfed with a small formula supplement.
-You are rolling over a lot!
-You get a lot of tummy time and seem to enjoy it for the most part.
-You are a smiling, laughing, baby talking, cooing machine!
-You just learned to put your feet in your mouth and love to do it while I am changing your diaper!
-You are working on sitting up with a little assistance.
-You are in a size 2 diaper.
-You are sleeping from about 8 pm-7 am.
-You adore your Jumperoo (too bad the only doors it can go in are the pantry and bathroom!)

I am so proud of all of your milestones. I am so sad I can't be with you all the time and see you doing more! I loved spending two weeks with you over Christmas-it was so much fun! Tell Daddy to let me stay home please! I want to see it all! I love you so much big girl-you are the light of my life!

And now for the photo blow out:

Five Months shot-I really need to make a collage of all her monthly shots in this corner of the crib.

Lou actually looking at me!

She is rocking boot cut pants, you would be correct in your assumption.

Ummm, excuse me, paci?

What is this fun stuff?

I shall destroy it!

Almost done with the destruction.

Second time to see a fire (I know, shirtless in the 19 degree weather!)

My most famous expression-"I have no clue."


  1. Susannah,
    She is DARLING!!!!! I'm so glad you shared! Aren't little girls wonderful??!!

  2. OH MY. She's so cute I can hardly stand it. I see sweet little one's like her and the voices in my head start yelling "I want one of those!" {JK. I'm pretty sure they don't give babies to people who hear voices.} But seriously, your daughter is adorable. Happy 5 months to you both!

  3. I hope you are keeping a diary of all of this so you can help me. I want a baby who sleeps through the night like that! How long did that take?

  4. Yay for Ems being 5 months!! She's so accomplished already. :-) LOVE the pictures. She's so gorgeous and I just wanna kiss that face. She's just going to get more and more fun in the next few months. So happy for ya. Yeah, stay home next year with me! :-)

  5. I am pretty sure that Emma is just missing her Nonnie in that last picture. She is biting her lip, trying not to cry, and hoping to see me real soon!!

  6. Sleeping from 8 PM to 7AM sounds absolutely GLORIOUS!!! Emma is a cutie pie!

  7. OK, that last photo...Oh! I just want to grab her and kiss her! What a sweetie!

  8. Cute! I love the shirt with the bee~where did you get it?

  9. She is so stinkin cute--oh and R is so jealous that Emma has all that hair :)

  10. she is BEAUTIFUL!!! :) and that post is so sweet! i love that you desperately want to stay hoem with her. i really want to stay home with addison! i cry most days about it :)

  11. She's a cutie! Emma was born just 2 days before my Lil Man! I am LOVING this stage too. It's so fun to see the world through their eyes:)

  12. I love your monthly posts. She is so stinking cute! I loved all the pictures of her.....she has a cute personality...you can just tell from the pictures. I know we will both be in heaven tomorrow getting to stay home all day with our babies. Enjoy your day with Emma! :)

  13. Sus I am being honest with you.......it is EXHAUSTING!! Davis will no longer sit in his exersaucer or jumperoo or sit on the floor in one place. I literally chase him around all day non stop. It is so much fun and neat to watch him discover new things each day, but I am soooooo tired!! His newest thing today was he started jumping in his bed. Holding on of course but he was jumping up and down like a wild man! I can't wait for little Emma to start crawling.

  14. Ooops I forgot to answer your other question. He will be nine months on January 14th. Man does it go by quick. I never know if I should answer people's questions in my blog comments or on their blog. You are the blog queen......what are you supposed to do? hehehehe Enjoy your day with little Emma!

  15. Oh my goodness...what a beautiful baby!

    I love your idea of making the sign for the monthly photos! So cute!


Thanks for taking the time to comment!
