That sweet face – 5 months


Eline at 5 months:

  • Weighs about 12 lb. 8 oz.
  • Rolls from back to stomach, practices crawling motions, has good head control, bears weight on her legs, sits with support and reaches for and grabs some objects
  • Coos and smiles, has giggled a few times, and loves to be tickled and played with
  • Really focuses on up-close details and also notices longer-distance objects and people in her surroundings
  • Seems to be teething off and on
  • Has had several rounds of sickness (croup, then a bad cold that’s still hanging around), which have made feedings difficult and highly inconsistent
  • Feeding schedule has remained at six feedings of 4 1/2 oz. bottles
  • Goes down for the night around 9:30 or 10 p.m. and sleeps until 6 – 7 a.m., with one dream feeding around 11:30 p.m.
  • Had been napping between every feeding but recently has gotten inconsistent with daytime sleep
  • Hearing screen at Vanderbilt today showed both ears still blocked, indicating she will likely need to see an ENT to deal with fluid that is not draining and is interfering with her hearing
  • Continues to show signs of a happy, people-oriented personality
