|5-month-old Brontë demonstrates an important life skill: foot-eating.|
Though she's been gaining weight okay, she's slowed down in the last couple of weeks. I checked her length & figured out why--she is working on that instead & has jumped up a few percentiles, making her only quite short, instead of really really short. If she keeps on this curve, the girl's barely going to pass five feet tall as an adult!
Besides hitting 14 pounds on breast milk only, Brontë is inching her way toward being mobile. She's consistently rolling from back to front now & when left on her tummy she will wiggle herself around clockwise, typically while squeaking & 'singing'. She's a really vocal little thing a lot of the day--takes after her mama. She's also found her feet in just the last week & has been sucking on them whenever they're bare.
Another noticeable skill Brontë's really improved at this month is grabbing things & getting them into her mouth. By next month she'll be good & ready to feed herself. I'm really looking forward to that. Prepare yourselves to be bombarded on all social media channels with photos of her covered in food!
