Day 158-159: Elle is 5 months!

Leighton turned 5 months old on this extra long day and she must have been excited since she woke up at 5:27am to celebrate. ๐Ÿคช

One of my favorite things about this age is how easy it is to get them to smile for photos. ๐Ÿ˜† This monthly photo was hard to get, but it had nothing to do with Elle…and everything to do with Kens. ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚

The second K sees what I’m doing, she has to be involved and refuses to get off the blanket. Today she decided to take her own “photos” and it was pure gold. ๐Ÿ˜‚

Leighton was workin it from BOTH angles. ๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

As much as Kensie loves to smother and hug and kiss “sister”, I think Elle loves it too. She is happiest being around K regardless of what’s going on and seems to just take it all in.

This chunk is a non stop MOVER.

She’s easily distracted while eating which makes it extra fun when K is around doing everything she can to get her attention. ๐Ÿ™„

Elle’s constantly rolling (off the couch ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ), turning, leaning toward things, trying to grab anything and everything and looking around. If you hold her upright you’ve got no hopes at getting her to relax. It’s her prime look out spot. ๐Ÿ˜‚

& sheโ€™s loving the exersaucer! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

L is a party animal just like K was and she’s great at going with the he flow, but this momma needs some time to get things done! This week we started the 2-3-4 schedule which was what K eventually put herself on, and L is crushin’ it. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ

With power naps in between โค๏ธ

She’s officially moved into her crib but still wakes up 1-2x at night to eat. I’ve started dream feeding and I think full on sleep training will be coming by next month if it doesn’t happen naturally. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ

Leighton loves to gargle, babble, chew on her fingers and is constantly covered in drool, but she hasn’t had any teeth officially break through! (Thank God)

We still visit the Chiro regularly and truly feel it’s a huge part of why Leighton is such an easy going, happy baby!

Seriously can’t believe her half birthday is just around the corner. It seems like this little babe stretches another inch every single night. ๐Ÿ˜ฅ

I’m enjoying every second of this stage and age! โค๏ธ

Go Knights!
Alll the love for โ€œsisterrrrโ€
