Charlotte is Four Months ... No, FIVE Months!

Charlotte, you are FOUR ... now FIVE (!) months old.



I missed her four month update, and am two weeks late in posting her five week update, but it's only because I've been staring into her sweet angelic eyes every waking moment -- and getting us settled in our new home. We are so busy these days!

Charlotte is a joy, joy, joy. Seriously a wonderful baby.

She is happy and relaxed and calm. I saw these traits in her little face the minute after she was born on April 14th. They placed her on my chest, she immediately calmed and snuggled, and I knew this would be my little snugglebunny sweetheart.

She is an awesome sleeper. Over the last few months, we've pushed her bedtime back from 9:30/10 to a more traditional baby bedtime of 7:30pm. I usually get Camille down at 7 and then turn to Charlotte -- nurse her, change her into jammies if she's not already in them, sing Twinkle Twinkle to her, and place her in her crib. She's sleeping through the night still which is so amazing. It took Camille until 6 months old to do that, and Charlotte started doing it around 3 months.

She's wearing size 2 diapers and 3-6 month and 6 month clothes.

She started rolling over at the beginning of August (right around 4 months), then sort of lost interest in it, and now is rolling back/front and front/back like a champ. This baby is on the move and life is about to get a little crazier!

She's not a loud baby in the least, but she's experimenting more with her sounds. When she wakes up in the morning, instead of crying, she just plays quietly and coos a little. It's the sweetest thing to behold.

She and Camille are getting along awesomely. Lots and lots of reminders to big sister about being gentle with her ... LOTS. But Camille can really get Char giggling, and vice versa. It's the best. Camille likes laying down next to her on a blanket or quilt and helping me during diaper changes.

Here are the items we are loving! Excited to see what the next month holds!

  1. Happy 5 months to sweet Charlotte! She is so precious and I love seeing your snaps of Camille with her. I am so jealous of your good sleepers. Madeline slept all the way through the night for the very first time last night, at seven months! She normally still takes a 3ish am feed. Love all of your favorite items.
