Jayla - 5 Months

Jayla is 5 months old! Where does the time go? She is actually quite under the weather in these pictures, but she's still happy!

What is new with Jayla?

Jayla ...

... weighs about 18 pounds and is about 26 inches long.

... wears mostly 9 month clothes! I still can't believe how long she is!!

... wears size 3 diapers. We just moved her up to size 3 this week.

... is sick. She has been battling Bronchiolitis for a couple of weeks, and during the weekend she ended up with some majorly awful diapers, which in turn has lead to an awful diaper rash. She's had about 20 bad diapers in 48 hours. We kept her home today and will probably do the same tomorrow. She's only unhappy when her diaper is wet/dirty and when we change it. Otherwise she's happy. She's had lots of pedialyte. We're praying this ends soon and that the rash will also go away. Poor thing. :( I chatted with the workers in the baby room at daycare today, and they said that none of the other babies have had this. After talking with the nurse today, she said this virus is going around. Ugh.

... spent 2 nights away from Mommy and Daddy. This was the first time since she was born that I haven't had her sleeping next to me! (But both Mommy and Jayla did well.) :)

... is still a great sleeper. She sleeps from about 9:30-6:00.

... loves when Jordyn plays with her.

... enjoys hearing The Wheels on the Bus. Her sweet face just lights up when we sing it.

... might possibly be teething. We can't quite tell.

... does very well with cereal, green beans, peas, and carrots. However, even though she loved the carrots, we think they upset her tummy a little, and I think we'll hold off on those for a little while.

... still rolls all the time, but mostly from her back to her tummy.

... tries to grab everything within her reach - even Jordyn's hair.

... has such a sweet personality. We just love watching her grow! :)
