1 week short of 5 months

Yes, I know each child is different.

Caylee is 7.08 kg at 4 months 3 weeks.

Just started her on Nestle rice, one spoonful. However she doesn't seem to like it at all. Cries after 2-3 mouthfuls. And she spits out alot of it together with alot of saliva.

Caylee is speaking more than her brother at this age. Her range of vocabulary ranges from the famous Ah Goo.....to Gleeee.....to Hey!.....to mmmeeeee.....to ah,ah,ah,ah.

She can't turn over yet. Highly possible reason coz she is hardly left on her tummy. She doesn't seem to like tummy time as much as her kor kor. Thus she doesn't lift her head as high as her kor kor. Hubby says could be due to the length of her neck which is shorter than her brother (in other words, she is fatter!). Instead she prefers to sit up...or of course be carried around.

She has less hair compared to her brother. I had to cut the brother's hair 2 times already by the time he was 5 months!

She drinks milk like we have been starving her for hours unlike her kor kor who drank at regular intervals. Drinking 6 oz min every 2-3 hours. It would help if she could eat....

She is beginning to want to hold her bottle buts its still too heavy for her.

Character wise, she is more demanding than her kor kor on a regular basis, in that she calls for people to come talk to her. However, she is easier in that when she is tired, she goes to sleep (given of course it is not too hot or noisy) instead of struggling to keep awake and getting all grouchy afterward like her brother.

Other developments similar to her kor kor are...reaching out and pulling things towards her, sucking her fingers and pooing everyday.

Due to the consistency of her poop, we may be taking her of Mamex and putting her on Friscolac. Yet to decide.

By the way, Christopher is 13 kg at 2 years 11 months.

Happy 5 mths old to Caylee.

Hahaha... that's the different characteristics & personalities between the siblings. Yeah Mamex makes babies poo more often but it's good to prevent constipation.

Happy 5 months old to Caylee sweetie:-)

Samantha also has less hair than Jonathan. But I find it a good thing. She can wear those cute hair bands. :)

Baby Darren said...

happy 5 months old, caylee...Wah she started semi-solid so early? My pead advise me not to start so early unless she is not taking enough milk. She said no harm start late, start early may cause allergies wor.

She is really much more milk than Isabel. Good that she can drink.

I've been to the last planet and back.
Sorry for disappearing for so long.

Gosh. Your girl is so big already.
Sorry I don't even have time to catch up on all your older posts.

Sneaking in a couple of hours to get into the blogsphere as we are back in KL this week.

Take care.

Hugs to your kids.
