5 Months!

Guys! I can't believe my baby is five months old already! She's getting so big! I feel like in just the past month she has learned a ton of new tricks: 

Like putting everything in her mouth - including her toes!!
 She gets pretty upset when she can't do it. 

We've started practicing with the sippy cup. I'm not entirely sure she can get anything out yet. I think she just mostly chews on it. But she can hold onto it all by herself!
She also looooves her "mesh bananas." She tries very hard to feed herself with the mesh feeder. She's also pretty good at me spoon feeding her. She just wants to eat real people food!
Ellie is also a great "supported sitter." She can balance for a little bit by herself. Mostly she falls forward because she's trying to grab at something. She's also a pro at rolling over, especially when she gets her diaper changed! I just love my sweet baby :)

Four Months

Little Miss Ellie is now four months and a weekish! At her appointment last week, she weighed in at 13lbs 11oz and measured 25in. We've just put away all her 0-3 mo outfits and now she's in 3-6 mo. She's getting pretty good at entertaining herself and playing with her toys for a few minutes at a time without me or Cass. 
She loves her Mickey Mouse rattle best, and she loves sitting and playing in her super seat at Grandma's. We've ordered a similar one for her to have at home and can't wait til it gets here! 

Ellie has everyone wrapped around her little finger (especially her grandparents!) and we just love her so much (even if she's a sucky sleeper!)! She's getting bigger and more fun every day!
