Chloe is 5 months old

Weight: 11 lbs 11oz.

Height: I dont know how long you are. That's something I'll figure out when you get up from your nap. 

Clothing & Diapers: For diapers, you're still in size 1's. They're not as loose as they used to be, so I've stopped stocking up in case someday you just stop fitting. As for clothing 0-3 month shirts are still a little big on you, most 0-3 month pants fit great. You've finally outgrown your 0-3 month sleepers, because of how long you are. You're now in 3-6 month or just 6 month sleepers. Your tiny feet finally look normal in size 1 shoes. I love putting shoes on you. 

Looks: You've still got almost no hair, and your bald spot in the back. Your eyes are still the brightest, prettiest blue. You've got the most evil looking smile, signs of trouble yet to come. 

Feeding: You are incredibly hard to feed during the day. You get distracted by everything, and even when you're not distracted, you kick and move and actually pull the bottle out of your mouth. If I didn't know better, I'd think you didn't want to eat at all, but usually you'll settle down enough to suck back most of the bottle. Through the night (or when you're really tired in the daytime) you eat like a champ. You're still on 5oz bottles, 6oz through the night. You finish your daytime bottles a lot more often now, and almost never leave anything in your nighttime bottles. 

Sleeping: Sometimes you have your bad nights, but usually you sleep from 9 or 10 until sometime between 8 and 9:30. You usually only wake up once through the night. You've been sleeping in your own room for a couple of nights now, which made me sad at first but we've both been sleeping better ever since. Before, anytime you'd move I'd wake up, and if your eyes were open I'd get you up. Now I only wake up when you start making little noises, so sometimes you put yourself back to sleep, letting us both get more sleep. 

I've also got you on a pretty perfect sleeping schedule. You nap around 2 hours after you get up - usually close to 11 or 12, and I get you up by 1:30. You nap again around 4 or 5 and need to be up by 7, then you'll go to sleep easily for the night around 9:30. 

Moving and Talking: Everything goes into your mouth immediately. You'll pull the collar of your clothes into your mouth, any toys, blankets, your feet, anything. You kick and move around like crazy, especially when someone talks to you. You still love playing on your back, but like to have a lot of time in you exersaucer too. You've gotten really good at pushing your legs down and basically standing up in it for a few seconds at a time. You can roll from your belly to your back almost every time now, but you never even try to roll from your back to your belly. You go to your side, but don't care to go any further. All in time, I guess. You're really strong. When you pull your bottle out of your mouth on me I sometimes have a hard time stopping you. 

You talk all the time. A lot of happy screaming, sometimes even at the most random times. You don't growl at all anymore, which you used to do all the time. You still don't laugh much on your own. I can get you to do it, but it takes a lot of work. 

Misc Things: You have pink pig and pink monkey that you love. I just have to hold them in front of your face and you light right up. 

You make the biggest smiles the second I go into your room to get you up in the morning or from a nap. Some mornings we lay in my bed and play for awhile. It my favorite part of the day. You usually stay in a great mood until it's nap time. 

You still love your baths, but we started giving you baths in your inflatable duck tub. It's so much easier because it helps you sit up without me having to support you. You were tired of laying down. You'd always hold your head up and it didn't look comfy at all. 

FINALLY, you don't cry every single time you're in the car. It makes life a million times easier. 

You still drool like crazy, but still no teeth. 

You still sometimes cry for people when they get too close too fast, but usually you just love everyone. I can almost always count on you to give a huge smile anyone talks to you while we're out in public. You're such a flirt. 

This past month has been my absolute favorite. You're so happy, and so much fun. Sometimes I get excited when you wake up from your nap. You're mommy's little angel and I'm loving every minute of it. I can't imagine a full day going by without seeing your pretty smile.

Her eyes really are amazing. Wow, she's 11 lbs? Makes me feel like I have a fatass baby. Natalie is only 3 months and weighs 13 lbs.

I can't believe she's already 5 months! What a pretty little lady you have. I can't believe Hunter is already bigger than Chloe, apparently I'm raising a future NFL linebacker! haha.
