5 Months Old

Okay, so we tried to get a mini photo shoot done for some 5 month pics, but EC was not having it as you can tell in some of the pictures.  

At 5 months, Emma Claire
  • Weights 8 lbs 4 ounces
  • 20 3/4 inches long and head circumference is 14 inches
  • Will roll from her back to her belly and then back 
  • Takes 80cc of milk (2 3/4 ounces)
  • Extremely observant of her surroundings, especially if she has not been there before
  • Starting to smile more and actually finding her voice
  • Loves attention 24/7 (but what baby doesn't)
  • Goes down to bed fairly easily after her 9 PM feeding.  We have been letting her wake us up for her middle of the night feed to see how she does and it is going very well.  
  • Loves to look at books and be sung to
  • Loves tummy time most of the time
  • Making tears when she cries (she might have been doing this for a while, but I have just noticed this)
  • Holds her head up pretty good and has great control 
  • EC wears a size 1 diaper and moved up to the next notch in her carseat
  • Emma Claire is also wearing mostly 3 to 6 month clothes in most things. She can still wear some 0 to 3 month sizes as well.
 Emma Claire is definitely starting to develop her personality and that is AWESOME to see!  I love seeing her interact with others and I would love to know what she is thinking about when she sees other little ones.  When you talk to her, she just smiles and and tries to talk back to you.  Who would have ever thought, MY child would try to talk! At least she gets that honest from me!


  1. Love the way you laid this out! Im gonna steal your idea for Cohen's 6 month post. She is so cute, the pink outfit with the ruffle is my favorite!

  2. She is too sweet for words. Absolutely adorable! Thank you so much for coming over to my blog and your sweet comments. Your blog is going to be my weekend reading. I can't wait to read about your gift from God. We are truly blessed to come out of the NICU experience with no long term issues other than the BPD (chonic long disease). I think Molly has pretty much grown out of hers, but she has not really been sick to know for sure. We have stopped her daily breathing treatments. It is such a small world to think you came from OK. I am so glad to have found your blog. I will enjoy keeping up with your sweet baby girl. God Bless, Andrea

  3. So glad that all is well in the Warren house! EC is just precious!

  4. Hi there, I just wanted to let you know I just finished reading all your back posts. EC is an amazing little girl. It brought back lots of memories. Thanks for sharing EC NICU story. Andrea

  5. Mary Farris went home at 5 months and weighed 8lbs 4oz!!!!!! I enjoy your blog and especially the pics. She looks like she is doing great~
