Mikayla – 5 Months

I am a little behind on this post since she turned 5 months last weekend…oops! I still cannot believe she is 5 months already! I have a feeling I will be saying that every month! Below are some pictures and stats!



Weight: About 16 1/2 lbs.  Height: 25″ (totally guessing)

Size: Just started size 3 diapers!  Size 6 months in clothes. I think she will move to 9 month pj’s pretty soon.

Eats: She eats stage 1 food twice a day and has 5 bottles of formula at 7 oz each. She LOVES her food! She has oatmeal with fruit in the morning and oatmeal with a veggie in the evening around dinner time. She eats every 3 – 3 ½ hours and I really hope this moves to 4 hours and 4 bottles soon.

Sleep:  FINALLY sleeping through the night! YAHOO! Well, pretty close. She goes down between 7 and 7:30 and wakes up between 5:30 and 6. She will take a bottle and go back to sleep. For the most part she is a great sleeper. We usually put her to bed after her last bottle and most of the time she is awake and will fall asleep within 5-10 minutes.

Favorite and least favorite food: She HATES peas! I have tried to mix them with something else but she knows. She loves sweet potatoes!

Milestones: She has two teeth on the bottom! She loves to roll over on her belly and “fly”. She is very close to sitting up on her own. We usually sit behind her in case she topples over but for the most part, she can sit unassisted. Not much of a talker yet so I am still waiting for that!

Looking Ahead: I am very excited for her to start talking more and start crawling within the next month or so.
