Molly Kate turned 5 months a few days ago!  She is such a blessing – high maintenance, but absolutely a gift!  You can tell from the pictures she is one busy lady!  She also loves to suck on her lip – -so funny!

At 5 months, Molly Kate:

  • Weighs 13 pounds, 9 ounces (huge weight gain since last month — WONDER why???)
  • Answer:   She went from sleeping ALL night (12 plus hours) to getting up at least 2 times a night!!! 
  • Can roll from her back to her stomach, but doesn’t like it once she gets there!!!
  • Is trying to sit up!  She is getting so strong!
  • Can sit on my hip – I love that!
  • Has had 2 ear infections this month – OH NO!!!!
  • Been on breathing treatments for most of the month due to the Bronchiolitis from her Reflux
  • Had an awful cough last week that we treated for Croup
  • Still on Zantac  — 1.6 mL 2x a day
  • Still on Prevacid — 1.5 tablet a day
  • Laughs out loud
  • She especially loves her brother!
  • Loves watching tv, especially football with her daddy!
  • Wears 1-2 Diapers – Pampers Swaddlers Only this month 🙂
  • Wears 6 month clothing for the LENGTH, but can still wear her 3 month clothing in dresses!
  • Insists on being held in the evening!  and she wants you to stand only!!!

What a precious gift she is!!!



  1. She is such a gorgeous little thing, you can really see her personality developing in these pics. I can’t wait to get my hands on her again soon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Durham has gone from sleeping through the night…to waking up once or twice…..just like MK….do we have a theory for this one? 🙂 Maybe a growth spurt?

  3. Ohh Katie where has the time gone? She is precious. I know you are enjoying this sweet little girl.

  4. i can’t believe she’s 5 months already. i can’t wait to see her this weekend. and I think Ava went through a growth spurt about this same time. lasted couple weeks 😦

  5. How sweet! MK is just too sweet. Kenley loves football too. How funny!

  6. I love this high maintenance princess so much!!!

  7. What a beautiful girl – High Maintenance and all!
