At five months Ellie:
-now weighs 13 lbs and 24 inches long. She’s a petite little thing! I finally put away all of her 0-3 month clothes, she’s completely in 3-6 months clothes now.
-rolls like crazy! I have to be careful when I put her on the floor because she can move all over the place!
-has quite the little personality emerging. For the most part she is a pretty happy baby. She loves to laugh! Although, when she gets frustrated or mad she will clench her fists and grunt/growl/scream. It’s funny and frightening all at the same time.
-is super independent and doesn’t want to be held or cuddled anymore (boo!) She loves to be standing and moving, and don’t you dare try to make her sit, she won’t have it!
-loves to be on her tummy. She can now get up on her hands and lift her upper body completely off the ground. As soon as she figures out how to get up on those legs, we’re in trouble! (We have a lot to baby proof!)
-gets a little worried around strangers. Sometimes she will be just fine around, but other times she will cry and cry and search frantically for mom.
-loves taking walks! We try to take one or two a day right before nap time, as long as it’s not totally and completely snowing or raining. Sometimes we look like marshmallows, we’re so bundled up! As soon as we step outside, her mood instantly changes (even if she was screaming her head off a minute before). She’ll sit up and look around for awhile, then slowly drift off to sleep for a good long nap.
-has us completely smitten. 🙂 Love being a mama to this sweet little one!
she is so freaking cute and looks so happy..
PS. is that rug from ikea? I have been swooning over it!
We have a lot of baby proofing to do still too! I have to say I'm going to enjoy the non-mobile stage while it lasts 🙂 She's such a cutie!

Lex, are you in the Provo area? Or close? uhmmmm because my husband and I LOVE darling lil baby girls, and if you ever need us to babysit, trust me we'd be so happy to (for free of course). So if you and your man ever need a night out, please let me know :))
It was so great and such a pleasure to cuddle my grand niece this weekend. You and Brian were so GOOD to share so much of her!!! Thank you for the opportunity. We love you so much and are so GLAD for your happiness. You are blessed. Now- watch out! My baby girl just turned 19 and it seems like yesterday she was just rolling over….
What a fabulous little girl! I love Ellie, and i loved meeting her!!! I can't believe it's already been 5 months since you were pregnant with her! She's b-e-a-utiful!
She is so so darling!! My little Ember is just a few weeks older so I am enjoying a lot of the same milestones.
okay, i'm going to go get me one of these adorable things.
she is so stinkin' cute!
Oh Ellie, how dare you grow so fast. Her personality shines through the photos. Love that she is moving so much. My girls always loved walks in the stroller- me too. Nothing like fresh air to give us all a new outlook.
Aww, so sweet!

Awww, she's so cute. What a little sweetheart.
I'm new to your blog (I spotted your button in Ashley at Him & Hers sidebar and popped across to see!) and our little girls must be about the same age. It's lovely reading her milestones and seeing the similarities and differences. I'm your newest follower. X
it's too much….i can't handle all the cuteness!!
