Capri Update: 5 Months*

My happy girl! 

The time has already gone by too fast! I hope to get to this each month, twice a month would be fabulous! My friend over at natyouraveragegirl has a post once a week with her daughter's progress! I love that but don't think I can get to it that frequently. I love the categories she has, so I am going to break the update up that way. 

Look at those thighs! 

Our little chunker is about 17 pounds! We were at the doctor's at her 4 month check up, she was 16 pounds 10 ounces. I am so not used to a chunky baby! But I love it!!

You could get lost in those eyes!
See the little tooth buds starting to emerge?

She is a thumb sucker! She doesn't seem to prefer one over the other. It's really cute! In the beginning we tried to take it out and encourage the pacifier, that failed! We almost don't need pacifiers. I take them along just in case, though. I will make a collage of all the times I snap a picture of her sucking that thumb!

Sleeping baby pictures melt my heart!
Capri is quite the sleeper! Her schedule (ish) is:
She goes to bed around 8pm, wakes at 5am to nurse, back to sleep until about 8:30am. She naps for about 1/2 hour at 11. Then down for a 2.5 hour nap at 1:30pm when Jeremy naps! Another little 1/2 hour nap around 6pm. She is a tummy sleeper! And loves her thumb!

My girl!

She is very rapidly growing out of 3-6 month. We have 6 month clothes in her closet that fir much better! We have been so blessed to have a few different people give us clothes. We are pretty much set until 12 months with more clothes then she can wear before she out grows them!
We have had her in some really adorable clothes but Mommy is terrible at taking pictures! When we get the pictures from Shilo's wedding I;'ll post that adorable dress!

Playing with Daniel

Since I will be homeschooling, I feel this is very important to put up. I need to make sure the kids are getting out of the house and spending time with people other then us! We went to Vegas with some firefighters and their wives and baby girls! We also spend time with Bobby's cousin (Christy, she has 5 kids).

Brotherly/Sisterly Love

These kids melt my heart each day! Today Jeremy brought his fire engine over to Capri (who loves that Jonny Jumper! She stays in it while I cook dinner) out her hand on the ladder and had her push it! While it was on it's way to a major train crash, of course! I just love to watch them interact. Capri loves to watch Jeremy hope, jump, tumble around the living room!


Breast milk every 3 hours, except at night. When she gets up for the day at 8:30am she usually doesn't eat until about 10:30am. She is taking about 6oz in bottles when I am not with her. Which is what I pump as well. SO I figure she is eating about 34 ounces a day.


Capri only rolled that one time! See here for the video! She is grasping toys and bringing them to her mouth to chew on. She giggles and coos all the time. She loves to be talked to!
