5 months

It's crazy to think that Everlee is now nearly half a year old!

She's getting so big!

Because of the constant recurrence of mastitis, I decided it was best to just pump my milk and give her bottles. I also supplement her with formula, and she's doing great with all of it! I'm so thankful.

She's still wearing size 1 diapers and mainly size 3 month clothes, but transitioning to size 3-6 month.

She takes around 3 cat naps each day and one longer afternoon nap.

Praise the Lord....she's doing SO MUCH better in her car seat. I think because she's finally taking a pacifier!

Her pacifier has a cute toy attached, which is probably what she likes the most because she's become quite the pro at grabbing and holding things. Case and point - my camera strap swung in front of her while taking pictures.....she tried to eat it up!

She loves taking walks and riding in the stroller, which we do quite often around here.

She's got two pearly whites pokin' thru!

She's such a great baby! I really can't say that enough....BUT.....our nights are long. I thought with her now taking bottles and a pacifier, we would get past being up all night. Wrong! She goes down around 9:30-10:00 and will sleep until 1:30. She'll eat then usually fall right back asleep. Then she is up every 2 hours - 3:30, 5:30, and 7:30 nursing. Yeah, not fun! The past couple nights she's just gotten up at 1:30 and 5:30, which is progress, but it still makes for a long night. And a long next day.

Good thing she's cute!

She's all over the place, whether it's rolling across the room or wanting to stand on your lap or wanting to crawl up your body while holding her; there's no sitting still.

Our family just loves her SO INCREDIBLY MUCH!

Happy 5 months Everlee Brooke!
