Happy 5 months my Little Dollface!
seems to be going by so fast. It seems like you were just born
yesterday but at the same time it feels like you've been a member of our
family forever. It's weird. This month has been awesome. You've
changed so much--not really in appearance but in your personality and
activities. We all love and enjoy you. We also love watching you go
through each milestone.
and your brother are still best buddies. He loves you so much although
sometimes he forgets you are more than half his size and plays too
rough. You, however, let him know when he's doing so by letting out one
of your usual blood curdling screams. Yes, you have one of the loudest
screams I've ever heard. You usually scream whenever you are hungry or
tired or bothered by your big brother. Otherwise you are pretty
happy. You love to laugh and smile. Your favorite thing to do is stare
at your big bro and laugh with him. Sometimes you guys will sit next
to each other and crack up. It's so sweet to watch you guys together
and I pray that you guys will forever be close and care about each
other. You also love smiling with your daddy. You are so sweet, I just
want to eat you up!
love to grab at everything you see, especially food. I haven't started
you on solid foods yet but I'm looking forward to it. I have a feeling
you'll be a good eater (fingers crossed). You can roll over from belly
to back but not from back to belly. When on your back, you roll over
on you side but don't get quite on your belly. When doing tummy time,
you get up on your elbows and look around. You like tummy time a little
better now that you are stronger. You sit well with support but can
only support yourself for a few seconds before toppling over.
still enjoying nursing you, although we are also supplementing because
my milk production isn't the greatest. You are a pretty good eater and a
fairly good sleeper. You nap3-4 times per day and they are pretty
organized (surprisingly). You like to sleep and you can hardly stay up
longer than 2 hours before you start getting cranky. You first nap is
about an hour, the second is about 2-3 hours, and the third is about 45
min to 1 hour. Bedtime is around 7pm and you get up once at night
mostly then wake up around 630. You have a little cold right now so
you've been getting up way too many times to count.
month we've done a few hikes, a few playground visits, a museum visit
and went to a birthday party. Oh, how could I forget...you went trick
or treating with your brother and a few of his friends. You were
dressed as a ladybug and your brother was Spiderman. You still seem to
love being outdoors. You are also very friendly and smiley (even with
strangers when being held by me). You don't like to be held my
strangers if I'm not around however. You love to blow bubbles and
imitate facial expressions and sound. You are just so much fun. Your
dad and brother are enjoying you a lot too.
We just love watching you grow and we are thankful to be blessed with such a sweet little girl as you.
