Five Months Old!

Ellie is five months old today and what a little cutie! We just love having this easy-going girl around and we think she likes us too!  Cooper and Penny are really good at making her laugh and entertaining her when Mama is busy.

At five months Ellie:
  • Weighs 14 lbs and is 24 1/4 inches long. 
  • Eats every 3 to 4 hours during the day and sometimes once in the middle of the night.  
  • Takes three naps a day.  One in the morning, one in the middle of the day, and one in the late afternoon.
  • Still sleeps swaddled up in her bouncy seat.  Mama doesn't see any reason to mess around with that reflux business.
  • Drools all the time and teethes on everything in her reach.  There are no signs of any teeth yet.
  • Gets nervous when people other than Mama want to hold her, though she is starting to go to Daddy and Ma-Mas more easily.
  • Reaches for Mama's or Daddy's face when we hold her.
  • Has discovered that her feet make great teething toys.
  • Likes to sit with her ankles crossed.
  • Mostly says "mmmmmmm" when she wants to talk but occasionally will let out an "ah!" or "ga!"
  • Experienced her first Mother's Day and Easter.
  • Traveled to the ranch, the lake house, Boerne, and to Houston to visit Nonnie and the cousins.  
Cooper takes time out from swimming to keep Ellie company.
Penny just had to have her picture taken with Ellie!
