Georgia June - 5 Months

I can't believe I'm typing Georgia's 5 month update!  I can't believe it was F I V E months ago that I was in the hospital in labor with her and finally delivering her because it seriously feels like it was maybe a month or two ago.  Time is flying and Georgia is growing like a weed! 

At her 4 month appointment she was about 1/2 an ounce under 14 pounds so I'm certain she is now over 14 pounds and probably 25.5-26" long. She's now in size 2 diapers &  she is already fitting into some 6 month clothes in Carters (which runs small) and in 3-6 month stuff in pretty much every other brand.  I even had her in some 9 month Carters footless pj's the other day, cue the tears because our little darling is getting SO BIG!

At what seemed like the literal SECOND she turned 4 months she hit that "sleep regression" that EVERYONE talks about.  Except for her it wasn't actually regression because she never was a bad sleeper since day 1, I mean we have never in 5 months been up "all night" with her.  She was sleeping 4-6 hour stretches since her first few days of life so this is just a sleep protest or maybe just growing pains.  She used to sleep solid and sound, then all of a sudden she was fussy and always wanting her pacifier she was thrashing her legs & turning herself almost over in her bassinet.  Finally at 20 weeks I put her back in her Dockatot in our bed, sleeping arrangements that we stopped at 8 weeks (there's the regression part) but it made it easier on me than having to constantly attend to her bassinet.  For a few nights towards the end (and definitely the worst part) of this mental leap (thank you Wonder Weeks App) she would only sleep in my arms.  Luckily she now seems to be back to her normal self and sleeping nice, long, sound stretches again. 

Her fingers, and everything else she gets in her hands, go into her mouth all the time & she is a drooling machine which makes me think a tooth might break soon but so far nothing really feels like it's coming yet.  She's been at this for a good month though now.  She is a party animal and has some serious FOMO if anything is going on around her.  Seriously she has to be awake and watching and participating in it ALL.  She will fight you tooth and nail if you want her down for a nap during a party or other social event.  She's my little smiley social butterfly.

She isn't quite rolling over yet but she is so close.  She can roll from tummy to back but not vice versa.  She does love tummy time and she loves to stand.  Her legs are so strong & her head control is perfect.  She's pretty much a side sleeper and gets herself wedged so close to the sides of her bassinet it scares me.  Luckily it's mesh and she can breath just fine.  She is also getting really close to being able to sit up soon, she can sit for less than a second on her own but you can tell she is really working at it.  Not sure how she has the strength to hold up that big head (head circumference is in the 92nd %tile!) but I think having to hold that noggin up all the time has made her neck insanely strong.

Watching Georgia grow and thrive has been so amazing.  Every day she makes us laugh with her talking and smiling, and lets be honest, her farting too which she thinks is hilarious.  We have been so blessed with such a well-tempered baby and we are enjoying every second of her, even those tough nights when she's up a lot, it's all I ever wanted for so long so as long as coffee is still in existence, then I am happy to be up with her.  Happy 5 months to our perfect little peach!


  1. Happy 5 months to Georgia :) She just sounds like a perfectly happy baby.

  2. She is doing fantastic! Olivia's sleep was awful from months 4-6 with that regression and like G, she was a really good sleeper prior to that. But oy. That was rough. So I'm so glad she's sleeping better!

  3. Aww so sweet watching her grow so well! I can't believe its been that long!!

  4. What an absolute cutie! And so happy to hear her awesome sleep habits are back!

  5. Time sure does fly! I love watching Georgia grow and all the adorable pics you post of her! What a wonderful sleeper she is (minus that little spat)! Oh what I'd do for a full night of sleep! Lol!
