Five Months - Ava

My Sweet Baby Girl is five months old already.  She has grown so much this past month.  Because of her utter hatred of Tummy Time, she has mastered rolling over from her tummy to her back.  She is grabbing toys with both hands and is putting absolutely everything in her mouth.

Last week I bid a fond farewell to my maternity leave and headed back into the classroom.  It was definitely a bitter sweet day made bearable only by the love and hugs from my students. Unfortunately, Miss Ava has recently decided that she does not want a bottle.  That's right, my Little Miss who used to love bottles given by Daddy or Nana, had decided that she prefers the "real thing" and will not settle for anything less.  Period!  We have tried multiple different bottles, scoured the internet for hints and tricks, gotten suggestions from the pediatrician, and tried, and tried, and tried.  Miss Ava, unfortunately, will have none of it.  She has been marathon feeding while I am home, waking up at least once to nurse {previously she was sleeping 9 PM - 6 AM}, and nursing during my lunch time.  My feisty Little One is proving she has a mind of her own!

Ava's current stats are:

Weight : 16 pounds 6 ounces
Height: 26 inches
Look at that Little Chunky Monkey.
How precious are these kiddos?  Noah was absolutely giddy because he got to cuddle his sister...I mean...seriously...that kid loves to snuggle.

  1. I had to laugh at the collection of bottles we gave away after the babies... allll shapes, sizes, textures... maybe she's a sippy cup gal. Good luck and your blog title has so many meanings when I look at it, the kiddos are getting so big so quickly, they are amazing!
