Harper: 5 Months

It's been two months since I last posted. TWO MONTHS. Poor baby Harper is definitely getting third child treatment when it comes to her blog updates! She's definitely not loved any less, but finding time to sit and write all this stuff down is proving to be quite a challenge.

Let's see if I even remember how to do this. I'm picking it up again though, I promise hope!

If you've lost track, our baby girl is now five months old! I'll throw in her four month picture for good measure, haha.

Harper Kate is SO much fun these days! And she is just the cutest. Eek, I can't get over how gorgeous she is (although I've said that about all of my precious babies)!

Loving the doorway jumper!

She weighed 14 lbs 8 oz (70%) and was 25" tall (80%) at her four month check up. She's in size 3-6 month clothes but sometimes wears 6-9 month, especially in sleepers. She wears size 2 diapers when she's not in cloth (i.e. when I'm backed up on laundry!).

She smiles and laughs a LOT. Avery makes her the happiest, but I think Landon will catch up once he figures out how to stop scaring her. We'll just say that he loves her a little too much!

Harper is a little wiggler. She kicks her legs all the time and rolls over the second we put her down. Out little ambi-roller can go from back to tummy and back again. She can scoot her little self around quite a bit, too!

She's a thumb sucker like her big brother. You know? I'm all for whatever works. Also, her tag blanket is magical. I'm not even kidding, it's what gets and keeps her asleep most days.

She sleeps okay. Harper JUST NOW moved into her room with Avery, so we're still figuring out the logistics of a baby and a preschooler sleeping next to each other without waking each other up. Harper's sleep is backtracking a little at night because she was sleeping all night until these pesky little teeth started giving her problems. Naps are iffy too, mostly because our schedule is so erratic that we just try to let her nap when and wherever possible. She IS a happy baby though, so I'm not too worried about it.

We just figured out that, in addition to her teething pain (with still no teeth to show for it), Harper is not a fan of dairy products. She's okay if I have it in small amounts, but bowls of ice cream and cereal are out of the question for awhile. Sad day!

We're starting to think about adding in some solids in the next month or so. She's been grabbing at our plates every time we're eating (although she grabs at everything these days), plus it may help her sleep better since she's waking up hungry. I'm fascinated by the Baby Led Weaning movement and am seriously considering skipping purees altogether!

The third baby seems to grow up WAY faster, and we really can't believe that she's already five months old. She brings so much joy and laughter to our family, and we can't imagine our lives without her!
We love you, Harper Kate!
