Zoey: Five Months Old

Well, I totally dropped the ball on her 4 month update so I’m going to combine that with this one. Haha…it’s so funny how things change with baby number two.

4 & 5 Month Update

Weight: At her 4 month check up she weighed 13 lbs 6 ounces. I think she might be a little bit over that now at 5 months old.

Sleep: At 4 months Zoey was going to bed around 8:30-9:00pm. I tried to get her to go to bed sooner but it just didn’t work. Now that she’s 5 months old and has started daycare she goes to bed by 7:30pm and sleeps through the night. We have to wake her at 6:00 am to leave for daycare but on the weekends we let her sleep in, which is usually until 8:00 am or so.

Where Does She Sleep: She is still sleeping in the pack n play in our room. We now use this sleep sack along with her footed pajamas to keep her warm.

Food: At 4 months she was eating maybe 4 ounces every 3 hours. She was snacking a lot and not eating really well. Now at 5 months we give her 6 ounces every 4 hours and she has been doing much better on that! Sometimes, she doesn’t take all of her morning bottle but for the most part she has been doing well.

Diapers: Size 2

Clothing: some brands she can do 3 to 6 months, but in carters she’s in 6 month clothing. So I guess basically 3 to 6 months or 6 to 9 months.

TEETH!!! Zoey’s two front bottom teeth came in at 4 months old! Ava’s teeth came in much later and with Ava we never really had a bad teething experience. Zoey is a different story. We definitely experienced the teething fussiness and irritability. Thankfully it didn’t last too long

Behavior: Zoey is still such a happy and content baby (unless she’s teething). Every now and then she gets really bad gas that can make her super fussy. I remember during 4 months, she had a couple nights where I questioned myself as a momma. You know those nights where nothing you do works. The nights, when you think you have it all figured out and then they throw you a curve ball. Yea…that pretty much sums up month 4 with her.

Zoey can roll over belly to back and back to belly very well. She holds her head up great and is close to being able to sit up on her own. I think in another month or so she’ll reach that milestone.

Loves: LOVES to talk! Her baby coos are the cutest. Zoey also loves to rub her fingers through her daddy’s beard and pull on it. Her and her big sister Ava are the best of friends! Zoey’s face literally lights up when she sees Ava. It makes my heart so happy. Zoey can grab things and loves to put anything and everything in her mouth these days. Zoey also loves getting a bath, dance parties, and seeing herself in the mirror.

Dislikes: I think we discovered recently she doesn’t like cold bottles, or to be held in the cradle position.
