Hallie’s 5 Month Update!

Would you believe it? Hallie turned five months old on July 3rd. Time is just flying by.

My sister-in-law caught this great photo of Hallie at our family reunion last weekend.

Current statistics:

  • 14lb 4oz
  • 25 1/4 inches long
  • Exclusively breastfed (we practice baby led weaning)
  • FINALLY enjoys being worn in the Mei Tai (which is currently missing :()
  • She is cloth diapered, except for at night. As soon as our charcoal bamboo inserts come in (our planned nighttime solution), we plan on switching to cloth diapers 24/7. I decided to ease into it with this baby. It’s just been what’s working for our family. 🙂
Current milestones:
  • She mastered rolling over last month and she now does what we call “baby push ups”. 
  • Reaches for toys while on tummy and can pivot herself in a circle (she is often not where I left her on her playmat!)
  • She is a supported sitter with the boppy pillow, but hasn’t mastered balancing her head in order to be an independent sitter yet.
  • She enjoys reaching for everything. Including my cell phone and grocery list while in the store.
  • Falls asleep at 7:00 p.m., waking at 11:00 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. to nurse. Sometimes in between, but that is only once a week now. She sleeps in until 10 a.m. most mornings and is awake until 1 or 2:00 p.m., taking a very long nap then. If she’s up earlier, she requires a morning and afternoon nap. It just kind of depends on our activity that day.
  • It seems like her two bottom teeth are about to pop through any time now.
Things Hallie loves:
  • Her Taggie elephant toy.
  • Watching her siblings play.
  • Sleeping on daddy.
  • Chewing on EVERYTHING.
  • Nursing
