Five Months




Your now 5 months old.  Here are the important stats for this month:

  • You weigh 16 pounds and are over 25 inches long.
  • You now wear size 2 diapers.
  • You are wearing mostly 3-6 month clothing, but there are a few outfits that you wear that are 6-9 months.
  • You are still army crawling across the floor.



  • You go to sleep each night between 7:30 and 8:00 p.m. and sleep all the way until 7:30 a.m.
  • You take 2-3 naps each day.
  • You started solid foods and seem to love them. You especially love sweet potatoes, green beans, and bananas. You are not a big fan of peas.
  • You are becoming even more verbal – this month you discovered your ability to shriek. You like to do this when you think nobody is paying you attention.
  • You learned a new skill this month:


Each day, Daddy and I see changes in you. We are loving watching you grow!

Miss Priss is as big as her bunny now. We miss her so much!

Oh boy, that is one determined little girl! Mia was an early walker and didn't even start pulling up till about 8 months. It took her approximately 2 months to go from pulling up to full-on walking.
