Lilah at Five Months Old

Friday, 22 June 2018

Our beautiful little Lilah is now 5 months old, and she is absolutely blossoming! I know I say it every single month, but these weeks really are flying by so fast. It feels as if just yesterday she was born - and now she's on the move and getting all the chub rolls!

At 21 weeks I popped to the weighing clinic, and Lilah is now 14lbs 15oz, which puts her back on the 50th percentile. We have absolutely no concerns about her weight though. She's filling out her 3-6 month clothes nicely, her legs have rolls for days, and just look at those chins! If anything I'm a little sad she's getting too big already.

Her hair is growing in slowly, and it's got that reddish tint to it that both of the older two had. Her eyes are looking bluer by the day too, so I have a feeling they won't be changing. This month she's really found her voice and is constantly gurgling or babbling away to herself - although she's still hard to get giggles from. And she's also discovered her feet, which is the cutest thing ever!

Milestone wise Lilah is really on the move now! She's rolling all over the place, twisting and turning to get around, and has even started to push backwards too. She's getting incredibly frustrated that she can't crawl properly though, so I really don't think it's far away at all.

Teething has most definitely arrived too, which isn't fun at all! Lilah is definitely a dribbler, and she's constantly got a finger, or even a whole fist, in her hand chomping away. We've got a whole selection of teething products to get us through though, so fingers crossed she pops a tooth soon. Please!

We're not weaning yet, but I don't think we're far off at all. Lilah still has 5 x 8oz bottles a day, but she's definitely getting more interested in us eating and seeing what's gong on. We've got the highchair back out, and we are sitting her with us at meal times now to get her used to it. So I think by her next update we'll be well into our weaning journey!

I just cannot believe in the next few weeks we'll have a 6 month old... it's going too fast!!

Just look at these three monkeys! I feel as if they've all grown a crazy amount since my last Siblings Project post. I love that Lilah is properly sitting by herself in these photos now - they look like a proper little trio. A very cheeky trio!

This month has absolutely flown by and honestly, I can't really remember much about what we've done each week. What I do know is though, that these three absolutely love being around each other at the moment. Lilah is so lucky to have the best big brother and sister around. And she rewards them with the biggest smiles and loudest coos and giggles ever.

Indie and Parker are also getting on a whole lot better at the moment too... well, for now at least! We've recently upgraded their beds to bunk beds, and they've proved to be a huge hit. Not only are they both sleeping better, but they're happy to sit and chat in their room in the mornings and evenings more too. We really couldn't have asked for it to go better.

I've also really noticed a fiercely protective side of Indie recently too. When we're out at somewhere like soft play, Indie will introduce herself to other children, and it will swiftly be followed by "that's my brother Parker, he's two!" She'll then keep a protective arm around him and make sure he's okay. It's the same if anyone talks to Lilah when she's in her buggy - Indie will always run straight over and chat to them. It's so lovely to see how proud she is to be a big sister!

By next month Lilah will be 6 months, and I'll be half a year into life with three little beans. I honestly cannot believe just how much a third baby has fit into our family. Lilah is such a little dream, and I honestly couldn't imagine our family without her. And I don't think Indie or Parker could either!
