Violet at Five Months

Tuesday, April 12, 2016


This month was a busy one for Violet! It seems like she learns a new trick every day, and changes so frequently I can't keep up! Out of nowhere I'll realize she's stopped doing something she used to always do and starts doing something totally new. Makes me really try to soak up every moment and take it all in.

This month, Violet:
Weighs 14 pounds and 6 ounces. 
Is 25 inches long. 
Can pick up and hold toys with one hand.
Can also pass toys from hand to hand.
Wears clothing size 3-6 months and size 2 diapers.
Tried her first food, pureed avocado, but didn't seem quite ready yet.
Can almost sit up on her own. 
Started to make a crazy pterodactyl sounding noise that literally hurts my ears.
Sleeps from 7pm-7am, and wakes up once at about 2am to eat.
Was Baptized.
Likes to stand with us holding her up.
Reaches for anything we're eating or drinking.
Is so silly and laughs a ton.

Every month with this kid just gets better and better. It's such a bittersweet thing watching her grow and become less of a baby every day. I can't believe next month she's already half a year old! People really truly mean it when they say kids grow up too fast.
