Lainey Lou ~ Month 5

Our little Lainey grew another month older (4.1.16). And boy oh boy was it a fun month. Lots happened and our little's personality is growing so much.

You can check out Lainey's growth in these previous posts:


Here's what's happening in your world lady ...


You have the most smiley and bubbly personality.


Your eyes really are that bright and blue!

Chair pictures were a bit more of a challenge this month as you're getting so squirmy.
And the majority of the shots ended with the props in your mouth.

Everyone meeting our sweet dog little girl, Lainey Lou. Hehehee!


How Big Are You?
Your 4 month well visit, with shots, wahhhhh was 3.8.16 ... and you're growing little miss!  You've got some adorable little chunky monkey thigh rolls and your cheeks are the squishiest!
  • Weight: 13 pounds ~ 26%
  • Height: 26 inches ~ 97%
  • Head: 16.5 ~ 90%
You've officially grown out of all of your 3 month items and I had to spend some time this week to buy you some clothes that actually fit! You can wear some 3-6 month items but you're mostly rocking all 6 month attire.

What's Your Temperament?
  • Your personality continues to shine through and you are the sweetes. You are happy 95% of the time and love to be talked to or just in the middle of the action. You smile from the moment you wake up in the morning until you go to sleep at night. I think you're shaping up to be your daddy's little clone from a personality perspective and if that's the case we're going to get along just fine :) 
  • When you start to get sleepy you get so vocal and you love to be heard!
  • You're giggle is here and here to stay! Ahhh it's too adorable for words. 
  • You're working out your triceps 24/7 and it's hysterical. You've got this thing where you constantly flex your arms and put them behind your back like superwoman flying and we love it. It's so funny.
  • You also LOVE your hands. You like to suck your thumb and you like to put your hands in your mouth constantly. Feeding you can be a bit of a challenge because your hands and your bib make it to your mouth before we can finagle the spoon in there. 
What Are You Eating?
  • You're eating 4 bottles a day and 1-2 pouches of baby food for dinner.
  • On the baby food front, you've had:
    • sweet potatoes (your favorite)
    • green beans
    • apples
    • carrots
    • prunes
    • mangoes
  • You eat an 8oz bottle when you wake up in the morning, another bottle about 3 hours later, another 3-4 hours after that, 1-2 pouches of food for dinner, and then you have a nighttime bottle before bed and sometimes only eat a couple of ounces. 
What Are you Sporting?
  • You've graduated to #2 diapers and still Pamper's people.
  • You've certainly grown out of all of your clothes and you're rocking some 3-6 months and lots of 6 month springy items!
  • You still rarely wear shoes, but hopefully when you start sitting up a little better we'll work some in. 
How Are You Sleeping?
  • You're still rocking sleep!
  • You've graduated from your velcro swaddle-me at night time and are now in a sleep sack with the swaddle wrapped around your mid-section but your arms free!
  • Your routine goes a little something like this (it can vary plus or minus an hour depending on the day ... but this is pretty close):
    • 7:00am wake up - so happy and smiley - 8 oz bottle
    • 9:30am - nap in crib 1.5 hours
    • 11:00am - 8 oz bottle
    • 1:30pm - nap (often in pack and play, car, etc) about 45 min - 1.5 hours
    • 2:30-3pm - 8 oz bottle
    • 4:00pm - cat nap while hanging out with everyone
    • 5:30-6pm - 1-2 pouches of baby food
    • 7:00pm - bath time, pj's, swaddle
    • 8pm - 8 oz bottle - sleep IN YOUR ROOM!
  • You're such a big girl! You made the transition this month to your very own room and you're doing great.
