Madeleine // Month 5

This one is coming in a little late. I knew we’d hit her 5th month the day after we got to Nashville, but it was such a whirlwind of a trip (literally) that I’ve only just sat down to recap the last month of sweet Madeleine’s life.

She grew out of talking to the skylight and bamming her legs. She can grab her bottle and is working on giving high fives. Her sounds are different, she sleeps quietly, and I am constantly amazed at how big she looks. Cue the tears.

So here’s her fourth month of life up until she hit month 5.

We got rear-ended on the freeway. Went to the Emergency Room to get checked out. I joked to Justen, “look at me! I’m standing here checking in like normal and not screaming at anyone!” but then when they put the little bracelet on Madeleine’s wrist I had flashbacks to the 3rd day of her life and spent lots of time sobbing. We’re all fine, but man. I hope we don’t go the hospital with Madeleine again for a LONG TIME.

We hit up our neighborhood bagel shop, Cedar St. Bagels probably an average of every 3 days. When they first announced a bagel shop coming to Camas, Justen and I laughed about how it’s not like we even go out that much anyway. Well when there are bagels, I guess we do 🙂

4 month check up at Dr. Metzger’s office. She got cleared for solids (we’re not doing it until she sits on her own). She was 14 lbs (41st percentile), 24.33″ long (38th percentile) and she destroyed the paper on the little bench thing in the office. At least she had fun though 🙂

Put on a brand new pair of leggings that I decided I loved so much (they are Victoria’s Secret softest leggings ever – literally the name of them, and they have pockets for your phone!) and Madeleine decided to christen them 🙂

Picked up this Moby wrap brand new from Goodwill for $15 and practiced snuggling in it for the plane ride to Nashville. I have another Moby wrap, but this one is stretchier and Madeleine seems to enjoy it more.

Kate Quinn had a sale and I couldn’t resist. Also, I realized that the little thin headbands stay on SO MUCH BETTER than the thick ones. What took me so long?

I can’t deal with this cute little unicorn hat from The Children’s Place. I can’t. The day before we left for Nashville we went on a walk… to the bagel shop (not joking about this) and to get coffee before spending the day working. She’s my favorite 🙂
