I think it is true what they say “the days are long, but the months are short”. We will be celebrating Maddie’s half birthday in just a short few weeks. She has been so much fun and just as “talkative” as ever in the past month!
At 5 months
- Diaper size- 4! I have to tell you we put her in size 5’s quite often because that’s what Jocelynn and JP wear hah.
- Clothing- Mostly 9 month. Can still wear some 6 month and 6-9! Big girl!
- Feeding- I started her on a few purees this past month (I know I said I wouldn’t) but she was starving! She started sleeping 12 hours again the night we started food. Coincidence? I don’t think so! She has 4 6-8 oz bottles a day and is eating 2-3 times a day with food.
- Sleeping- naps 2-3 x a day. Sleeps 10-12 hours a night
This past month: Madelynn has conquered the back to tummy roil over. “Talks” so much. Very, very good with her hands! If our face is next to hers, she has to touch it! Teething like crazy. No swollen gums though. Just drooling excessively and putting anything in her mouth that she can! She LOVES bath time! Whenever I’m solo put all three babies in the bath at the same time and they all love it. Maddie just stares at her bubba and sissy. Jocelynn loves helping me bathe her! She has started “giggling” a little but no tummy laugh yet! I’m dying for her to give us a full on tummy laugh! She will also sit unassisted for a few minutes! My little growing girl;)
For comparison, here is a picture of the twins at 5 months
I cant tell you enough how much I love you. I am so glad we were chosen to be your parents because you have a way of lighting everyone’s day. You are just the happiest baby and such a joy to be around. You are an amazing young girl already and I’m sure you are just going to grow even more amazing with each passing day. I love you so much my baby girl. Happy FIVE months!!
