Yesterday Elizabeth turned 5 months.
I weighed her at 14 pounds, 7 ounces and I think I must have mis-measured last month because she measured 26.5 inches this month.
She seems to have a growth spurt, recover and try to get back into a routine, then hit a learning spurt, recover and try to get back into a routine, repeat, repeat, repeat. I can have a hard time keeping up with her sometimes, but she is learning and growing wonderfully. She is practicing sitting up on the floor and in her bouncy seat.
She has absolutely mastered the push-ups and is trying to get her knees up under her. She has managed a few times to get up on all fours only to lunge forward catapulting her face into her quilt on the floor, but she is a sport, giggles, and tries again.
I am planning on introducing oatmeal cereal in December as she gets better at sitting up. She will reach that 6 month milestone on Christmas Eve. Writing that post will be a nice early Christmas present.
