Chloe has been growing up fast during the month of August.

She can sit on her own now for short periods of time. It's pretty funny to watch her slowly tip over. She really wants to sit up, though. If we put her in a seat that is reclining, she pulls herself upright.

She was having a growth spurt a couple of weekends ago, so we decided to give her some cereal. She was happy with that decision! She doesn't eat solid food every day yet. I just can't figure out how to work it into our routine. I figure I've got a little more time to figure it out, since she usually gets plenty full on formula. In fact, at five months she weighed 18 lbs 2oz. Impressive!

She was at the doctor being weighed at five months because she had her first illness- a cold with a fever. It didn't develop into an ear infection, but still made for a pretty rough week. Two weeks, actually, considering Connor and I have her cold this week. Neither of us developed a fever, and so far Chip is avoiding it. I'd knock on wood, but he already mentioned he has a headache today so I'm guessing it's too late!

(I didn't take any pictures of her while she was sick, so I put a happy picture with that paragraph instead!)
