5 Months



Secora is 5 months old, where has the time gone?! They always grow so fast at this age.

I weighed her on Sunday and she was exactly 15 pounds (still averaging over 4oz gain/week. We expect 3-5oz/week at this age, so she's perfect).

Her tear duct seems to finally be clear for good. I haven't noticed any drainage or goopiness for a couple of weeks now. She has built up a lot of core strength and rolled over back to front once. She scoots around so much now (just from kicking her feet and doing tummy crunches) that we can't just leave her in the middle of the bed and expect her to stay there anymore.

She has discovered she has feet, but still seems surprised and amazed every time she sees them. She chews on her hands so much they are often red and chapped. She takes a pacifier sometimes, but often turns it down too. She's started chewing on our shoulders when we hold her.

She has started babbling A LOT and often has a 6am chat with herself while Josh and I try to stay asleep. She usually wakes up 2 or 3 times a night to nurse.

She is back in disposable diapers full time and her skin looks completely clear again. She is still miss princess pants though--the second she poops, she expects to be changed (not that I put it off, but she's not keen on waiting 30 seconds for me to get a new diaper).

She's taking a lot of interest in our food and tries to watch her older sisters more. Things will get real interesting around here when she's mobile!
