5 Months

We seriously LOVE this girl and can't get enough of her.

I can't believe she is already 5 months old. I don't know how much she weighs right now but will find out next week. My guess is a little over 12 lbs.
I have to keep reminding myself that her adjusted age (developmentally) is 3 months. The doctors say I will need to adjust her age until she is about 1 year old since she will be about 2 months behind. I see other 5 month old babies who are so big and who are playing with toys and are so strong. Jadyn is getting there but is still so little for her age but is getting stronger everyday.

Here are some things I want to remember at 5 months:

*She loves to sit in her Bumbo so she can see whats going on.

*She loves her swing. If I can't get her to go to sleep any other way I know if I put her in her swing she will zonk out in a matter of seconds. This is often what she looks like. 

*She absolutely hates the car right now. As soon as you put her in she will scream the whole way until you get her out. So sad. It breaks my heart.

*When she is playing on the floor and there are toys hanging above her, she will get her little arms and legs moving so fast. She kicks likes crazy because she is so excited. She doesn't quite grab the toys yet but will occasionally flail her arm up there and hit them. She recently started blowing bubbles in excitement too. She will focus so hard on the toys and pretty soon she will have a bubble mustache going down each side of her mouth.

*She giggled for the first time last week....So cute. Melt my heart. Wish I would have caught it on camera.

*The fluid in her belly is slowly going down. I can tell a difference lately. This is helping her be more mobile I think. She will occasionally roll on to her side. My niece informed me the other day that she knows Jadyn is not fat... but she looks fat because of the water in her belly. I thought it was funny.

*She finally went to church for the very first time on Sunday. Our doctors told us to keep her home for quite a while because of her premature lungs but we decided it was finally time. She was a good girl and was pretty entertained by books that I brought.

*And finally... something really blog worthy... Ha.....We played outside today for the first time!! So so sad that it has taken this long. I'm really jealous of my Cali peeps who get to play outside everyday and go on walks. Up until today, all Jadyn's outside experiences mainly consisted of be covered in the car seat on the way to the car because it is always freezing or snowing or raining or something. But today it was a whopping 50 degrees so we ventured out. We went on a walk and Jadyn loved swinging with her Momma. It will probably snow tomorrow but we enjoyed the nice day while we could :)

I love this little update and seeing how she's growing and developing a little personality. So sad that she hates her car seat! How did that work on your trip to Panaca? I hope her blessing day was wonderful and not too stressful for you. I can't wait to hear more about it and see you guys!! When is that going to happen??
