Meredith 5 Months

Amelia, Samantha and Meredith’s 5 month comparison:

Meredith is getting a look of her own, these days, although she still reminds me of Samantha at this age.

When Meredith wakes up in the morning or wakes up from her nap and sees us, she erupts into a huge grin and giggles. She’s a pretty patient baby and will coo and gurgle to herself in her crib until we come and get her. I’m totally biased, but she is the cutest.

Meredith wears 6-9 month clothes, as well as some 12 month outfits. She’s one big girl!IMG_1738 (1)

Meredith takes 3 naps a day with a catnap in the late afternoon, followed by 12 hours of nighttime sleep. Her favorite part of the day includes any time her sisters are up and bath time.

Meredith loves to kick and squirm, but so far hasn’t rolled over from her back to her tummy. She’s pretty content to hang out and crane her neck to see what’s going on, and loves to do core work by practicing sitting up while lying on her back. This girl has some serious abs!

No teeth yet, but the drool never ends and neither does putting everything in her mouth.

Badminton racquet? Fascinating! Meredith loves toys, teethers, random objects and blankies, all of which she usually ends up tasting. The only thing she will routinely spit out? Pacifiers. She’s a thumb sucker and gets angry when I try to give her the Wubbanub!

She’s always curious about the world and is content sitting and looking around wherever we are.

Amelia, 5 months. The twins were definitely a lot harder to entertain at this age.

Whoa there!

They call me mellow yellow. IMG_1768

This month, Meredith practiced sitting up, assisted,  grabbing dangly toys and objects off the high chair, yanking mommy’s hair, talking and shrieking, and chewing on toys. IMG_1752

This month, Meredith had a busy social calendar, including visiting Great Grandpa.
