Emma's Fifth Month

Emma now pushes her entire body up while on her tummy. She rolls from her back to her tummy all the time. She sleeps on her tummy now, too. If you try to flip her back, she goes right back to her tummy! She scoots her upper body around to follow things and reach for toys. She squeals when she is happy and babbles a lot.
Her teething is getting more painful now, she chews on things alot and sucks on her lower lip. She really started watching us eat and drink. She especially loves water bottles. She reaches out for them, opens her mouth and leans in to have a sip. Of course when she takes a sip it ends up down the front of her shirt, so we usually just pretend! She started grabbing my face with both hands and nuzzling when she is tired, which of course melts my heart. She still loves bath time and now kicks her feet in the tub to splash. We saw the Pediatrician on the 14th and she weighed 14 lbs. 9 1/2 oz. and was 26 in. long. When she was born, she was in the 80th percentile for both weight and length, now she is in the 60th for weight and the 90th for length. Maybe she will be a basketball player like Uncle Tim!

The doctor told us we can start cereal, so Emma had rice cereal for the first time on the 16th! She had it all over her face on the first day, but by day two she gobbled it up. She also tried oatmeal and bananas and loves those, too. After our Indiana visit, Grandma Debbie came to visit us on the 26th. She said she couldn't resist now that she is eating fruit and cereal! Emma is such a big girl and changing all the time. Soon her little teeth will poke through and she will be crawling!
