Happy 5 months Bella Rose!

Yes I am almost exactly a month late.. i know mother of year over here. But i wanted to get this posted before she turns 6 months!  

Happy 5 months Bella Bug! It has been 5 amazing month! You are growing up too fast and amaze me every day.  

 Bella is getting so big!!!! She now weighs 18 pounds (93%) and are 25 1/4 (90%) inches long! Needless to say we had to pack up all her 6 month clothes and pull out the 9 month stuff. Pjs' and anything one piece are an issue. We had this problem with Brayden too. Because she is so tall she tends to outgrow things in length so fast. We still call her our little chunky monkey! She has those chubby baby rolls and thick thighs, i could eat her up.  Apparently the mommas milk is doing her good!!

You are still a champion breast feeder! She still eats about every 3 hours during the day. Sometimes she will go for longer stretches.  If i were to guess based on how much i pump she has to be drinking 4-6 ounces at a time.  We have started some solids. She is showing interest in anything we are eating and tries to reach for it. We are doing a combo of baby led weaning and puree and she really seems to love it. She will eat puree but definitely favors chunkier/table like foods. I love watching her try to hold her food and eat it. She gets SO excited she misses her mouth and makes her share of messes!

Bells has always been a good sleeper but we have definitely hit that "4 month wakeful period". Sigh...its rough going from waking 1x a night to every 2-3 hours. She has been really sick so I know that is not helping. She started on the 16th with what we now know is RSV. Thankfully we were aggressive with treating her symptoms early on and it didn't get in her chest to the point where we needed nebulizer treatments. Regardless I still felt awful she was so sick.
Bella seriously so much fun! she rolls both ways, love to sit and play and stand at her toys(with assistance). You have great hand eye coordination and are really good at passing things back and forth from hand to hand.  Brayden is her best friend! She could seriously sit and watch him all day and loves interacting with him. I think they have a secret language b/c they just "talk" and crack each other up.
