5 Months Old!

Emma just turned 5 Months! She melts our hearts daily, and we love her so much! She is now rolling onto her tummy every day, and her eye/hand coordination is getting better by the minute. She reaches out for us now, and it just tugs at our heart strings! We just had her doctor visit, and she weighed in at 14 lbs 7 oz, and measured 26 inches long! The doctor said she is growing great, and that we could start her slowly on baby food. We have tried carrots, sweet potatoes, bananas, and squash so far. We also tried giving her rice cereal, but she was not a fan of that. So we have stuck to the baby foods. She really likes the sweet potatoes, bananas, and squash, you know the sweet stuff (must have my genes!) But was not a fan of the carrots. She fits into her highchair that Grandma Entwistle bought her, and she loves to hang out in it! She is higher up off the ground, so she likes to see what's going on. We also have a jumper that she likes to play in, although she can't quite sit up straight in it on her own yet. When she is on her tummy she tries her hardest to crawl and move, but just can't yet! Here are some pictures of our sweet Emma:


  1. Rice cereal is pretty gross by itself, so I always mixed in some baby food so the kids would eat it and get full. She is adorable and I can wait to see you guys again soon!

  2. ohhh good idea, we'll try the cereal with the baby food. She is so close to sleeping through the night, so close!
