5 Months Old

My sweet girl is 5 months old today. Where is the time going? She is getting so big. It does not seem possible but we love her more with each day that passes. We are so blessed....She is the best baby. I love her smile, it lights up her whole face. I love when Jarred or I walk into a room and she just beams at makes my heart swell with love and pride. We thank God for this most precious gift!
What Ava is up to:
  • She is sleeping about 12 hours! We put her down about 9pm and she sleeps to 9am. I think she gets her love of sleep from her mommy!
  • Still hates tummy she just rolls over to show us she does not want to be there! I am a little concerned she may not ever learn to crawl!
  • She is trying to sit up....I think it will be soon.
  • She is only getting breast milk. We will probably be adding cereal in the near future.
  • Still loves bath time. We bought a bath seat and it is awesome! She got a new tug boat and she could play for a hour if I let her. This is also one of my favorite times of the day. I hate that I miss it when I am at work!Loves her excersauser and her lights and sounds mirror
  • She has noticed the dogs and she laughs and smiles at them. It is so cute!
  • Loves to shop with Mommy. I put her in the stroller facing me and she smiles and talks to me the whole time
  • She is an easy going, content baby....we are blessed!
Happy 5 Months Ava! Mommy and Daddy are so in Love with you!


  1. She is as cute as a button!! They are sooo adorable at this age! Don't worry, she will crawl! R did not start well past 9 months....They do grow up fast!! Have a great week!

  2. Sleeps 12 hours? I am so jealous. Lincoln goes to bed around 8-9 but only sleeps until 6-7... I bet sleeping in til 9am is sweet bliss.

    Don't worry about Ava not crawling... she will.. Lincoln started army crawling around 7 1/2 months and crawling really good around 8 1/2 months.. and he HATED tummy time too.

  3. Girl, she is a doll! Don't worry about the crawling thing. Wyatt didn't crawl until 10 months and walked at 15 months (you probably remember from my posts that I was pretty worried about all this), but he is RUNNING now! It is so hard not to compare your children to others, but they really will do everything on their own time :)
