The month with the most growth to date! At 5 months, Avera has become such a big girl.
She began by interacting more. She started recognizing toys, reaching for them then choosing the ones she wants over others.
She is the most curious and intrigued little girl. She’s most content when we’re out and she can people watch and take in all of her surroundings.
She learned how to throw. Now not only does she throw, but she will throw a toy then crawl to go get it.
Speaking of crawling… This chick is mobile!
Now playing with sister Pippa is even more fun! When Avera sees Pippa she beelines.
I decided to put her in front of a mirror for entertainment. She loves it of course!
We did, however, take this opportunity to transition to her crib. She is officially in her room (even if she’s up every hour); and we are happily getting more and more sleep each night.
The transition from the inclined Rock ‘n Play to the flat crib was not exciting so the Baby Merlin’s Magic Sleepsuit was a lifesaver!!
No pearly whites peeking through just yet, but it will only be a matter of time since teething has officially begun! She has all of the signs: drooling, fussy, chewing, even the mythical poop changes.
So we’ve started the tricks: the toys, amber jewelry, lavender on the jaw and milk pops.
We had been practicing sitting up, but after using the bassinet on the plane she gained some confidence and figured it out.
And bath time is already more fun.
Traditional 5 month pics didn’t happen but these amazing ones did.
In honor of 5 months, and being in a place that made it possible, we took Avera to get her ears pierced.
