Five months!

This month, Ellie:

  • Braved her first (and second) blackout(s) when we lost power for multipe days. During the first storm, we all piled in the basement on night one, but headed to the nanny share family’s house for the second night. And during the second storm, we headed over to G Street to give our friends some baby girl preview time.
  • Met Katie, Abby and Emma Dole (and their brave parents, Sam and Jen who drove from Boston for a visit.)
  • Met another baby, Seelye, for every other Friday in the nanny share.
  • Had her four-month doctor’s appointment where her shots were not nearly as traumatic as at two months. She is about twice her birth weight.
  • Had a quick visit from Grandma & Grandpa from Cascade.
  • Started rolling and rolling and rolling some more.
  • Became a much more prolific giggler and babbler.
  • Has a very strong grip. She knows how to take her bink out … but not yet how to put it back in.
  • Wriggled out of her sleepsack resulting in the first time we walked in to a baby on her stomach in her crib one morning.
  • Runs her legs. All. the. time.
  • Graduated to this jumperoo (although her feet just barely touch the floor.)

Here is a smiley video and a waking up video.

Happy five months, little bean!
