Today is Bella's 5-month "birthday"! Has it really been 5 months since we welcomed our little bundle of joy into the world? Time flies when you're having fun (or sleep deprived). She did not have a 5-month check up, so our stats are unofficial, but here are Bella's 5-month stats:
Height: about 27 inches (she seems to have grown in length over the past month)
Weight: about 20 pounds (she is a BIG baby)
Sleeping Pattern: Bella has regressed in her sleeping habits... sigh. Bella is sleeping through the night and averages 6-7 hour stretches of sleep, although with her teething and reaching new milestones, she wakes up around 2-3am for a feeding. We can't wait for her to return to her "old" habits.
Eating Pattern: Bella eats 5-6 ounces of formula every 3-4 hours, she has also started stage 1 baby foods. She has tried green beans, squash, peas, applesauce and pears. Her favorites so far appear to be green beans and peas!
Milestones: Bella keeps rollin', rollin', rollin'! She rolls from back to tummy quite easily. She enjoys tummy time much more than she did before. She's still teething, but we're anxiously awaiting the arrival of her first tooth.
Friends: The usual crew from MWI. She also met her "cousin" Sarah Grace from Nashville, as she and her parents are in town this weekend.
Current Events: College football season has begun (the Gators won), some whack job minister in Gainesville wants to burn the Quran on 9/11 and our neighbor had her garage door dented by a drowsy driver.
