I thought I would start doing updates on Amelia to capture how much she changes.
Amelia was 5 months on the 25th June. It has gone fast and I am trying to make sure I enjoy the moments with her as it's so easy to get caught up with life.
She was weighed on Monday and weighs 16lbs 7oz and is still on the 75th centile.
We give her 5 7oz bottles a day but she drinks about 3 1/2 to 4 of them.
She hasn't started weaning yet but I can't see it being long before she will. I am aiming for 6 months as they can eat mashed food rather than puréed food at that age. I am going to start putting her in her high chair (well, Hollie's high chair) to get used to it.
She is still in 3-6 months clothes but I don't think it will be long before she is in 6-9 months.
She loves to smile and laugh especially with her sister and has begun to cry when I leave the room.
Amelia isn't interested in crawling or turning over etc. yet but would like to sit up rather than leaning on a cushion although she doesn't have the strength to stay sitting up yet.
She also loves to take her socks off.
Her latest trick is to shake her head and it tends to be just at the right time like when we are asking a question!
Amelia still has reflux but it is slightly better at the moment and she doesn't get pain with it and she dribbles a lot with teething as I mentioned in this post.
She sleeps through the night and has done since she was 8 weeks old which was the same with Hollie. I definitely don't take this for granted as I know this can change at any moment especially as she is teething and does wake maybe once or twice in the night due to teething but settles herself quite quickly.
We are beginning to see Amelia's character coming out (look at the cheeky smile!) and look forward to seeing what she gets up to next.
Hope you have a lovely weekend. See you soon.
