Five Months

Five months... and almost the start of a new season. My beautiful girl has been very busy growing up this month!

This month Georgia has:
  • Had a bit of a regression at around the 4-month park, but is now back to sleeping through the night again.
  • Been working hard at sleep training (& so has her mama.) We are plugging away at learning how to self-settle and get better at day sleeps: which means bedtime is upstairs, all the time. Doing well so far.
  • Calmed down in the car while on trips - she does get grumpy when she's tired, but she's much better in there now.
  • Figured out that she has thumbs - and it's a challenge to get them OUT of her mouth!
  • Also figured out that she has LEGS! They are up in the air and flailing around constantly.
  • Been interacting with her toys and her activity gyms. It's so amazing watching her grow and learn.
  • Not stopped talking! She has been babbling for a while now, but she's now responding to questions and is experimenting with her mouth/tongue. It's absolutely hilarious. I think she'll talk before she'll walk.


  • Been stuck with her mama five-days a week. And for the most part, has been so well behaved!
  • Stuck to breast-milk and has been having some days completely top up free.
  • Continued to grow. Last weigh in was a few weeks ago, at 6.6kg. I'm sure she's close to 7kg now.
  • Outgrown her 000 clothes and is officially in 00 (3-6 month) clothing. Huzzah, baby girl!
  • Remembered how to roll! She rolled from tummy to back really early, but then decided she was bored and gave up on it. Now she's at it again. Still no back-tummy, but that's fine by me.
  • Outgrown the swaddles and is now in sleeping bags for all her sleeps. She's very cheeky with yanking her dummy out of her mouth now that her hands are free, but she went cold turkey & has done great!

She's growing up so fast! Good luck with the sleep training... I'm terrible at this. Eddie's only 9 weeks, but I feel he should learn to fall asleep on his own, and self settle. Its so hard though!

And with Spring arriving, it's a perfect time for Georgia to outgrow a size. New fashion range for the little lady!!
