Emilia is 5 months

My baby girl is 5 months, how is that even possible. This time last year we were getting close to the end of our first trimester and couldn't wait to share the news with the world. Well world, she is here now and she is 5 months.

She is just a happy go lucky baby. We are truly blessed with easy (ish) babies I swear. Last weekend we took the kids to see Santa at the mall. I knew for sure it would be chaotic and I was just praying that it would be uneventful. Low and behold, everyone behaved like a charm and we ended up with the best Santa picture ever.

My kids with Santa this year, not a single tear shed. This pretty much sums up our life with our sweet 5-month old baby: bliss and happy kids.
Baby girl is sitting up all by herself like a big girl now. I am so loving this milestone, check her out all propped up in her bassinet. I love this sweet face so much. How funny is that her big brother Bean started doing this at 5 months too.
Next week we will be celebrating her first Christmas so of course this shirt had to make an appearance. She is such a great baby. She is so chilled and relaxed most of the time. She is very similar to Jbird and Bean at this age.

Those beautiful brown eyes, those awesome cheeks, that bald head and those sweet rolls. This baby is pure delight. The boys agree, she is a keeper.
She is sleeping like a champion now too. She started last month and she has been very consistent. I am a happy camper. She usually goes down for the night around 11pm and doesn't wake up until 6am. That's a 7-hour stretch.

I love this picture so much, Emilia looks like such a big girl here and that little happy smile just melts my heart every time
She is a great feeder. She stopped nursing on the boob around the time I went back to work and I have just been a pumping machine. I still offer the boob but she doesn't seem interested. I am going to try harder when I am home during the holiday season and see if things change. I am sad that it happened so quickly but I am happy that I still make plenty of milk to sustain her by just pumping.

She is such a sweet happy baby
The first day of advent came and we pulled out the advent calendars. Though she couldn't enjoy any chocolate this year, she was there to cheer her brothers on :)
My BFF who lives in Colorado sent me these awesome matching shirts for me and my mini. Remember when we went to her wedding in Colorado more than 2 years ago? She knows me too well and she is definitely feeding my matching addiction. Matching with my mini me, my absolute favorite thing to do right now.
I compiled this awesome video of my baby girl. It is so much fun to film her plus her big brother Bean joined in on the fun so it was definitely a sweet video.
Happy 5 months to our sweet baby. We are so blessed to call you ours and are totally enjoying every minute of your first year of life. We celebrate every milestone and we love seeing you grow strong and healthy everyday. We love you to the moon and back sweet baby.
