Happy 5 months baby girl! I’m pleased as punch that you’re growing up and putting so much joy into our lives.
You started off this month with your second round of immunizations. You did better with the needles than the first time for sure! Luckily no fever or anything either. Sorry for the pain baby, but it’s for the better.
You came down with your third cold of your life this month. So much sneezing and stuffy nose time. At least it passed within a week.
Sleep still isn’t so great. As previous months, you are up anywhere from 3-6 times per night. We are going to have to do something more drastic in the coming month in hopes of getting you to sleep longer stretches. Everyone is super sleep deprived around our house. However, you’re napping regularity in your crib and doing well at that. I think we had 1 day where you napped 3 hours! Yay.
The Easter bunny paid you a visit for the very first time. You actually slept through all the egg hunting that your sister did, but at least you were awake during Easter dinner. Next year I’m sure you’ll love collecting all the eggs with Ezri.
We had ourselves an all girl week this month because your daddy had to go away on a business trip. You were a lucky girl as we went over and visited your grandma and grandpa every night that your daddy was gone! You got lots of cuddles from them. You didn’t even make strange with daddy when he came home either, so that’s a bonus.
You are interacting and laughing at your sister so much. She loves to entertain you and can’t stop kissing your forehead. You think it’s funny when she does silly things. Whenever you cry, Ezri says, “Oh no, don’t cry baby” to try to make you feel better. She will often bring you a toy as well.
Grabbing things into your mouth is your favourite thing and everything within your reach is fair game. I can no longer eat while holding you because you want my fork, food, water glass, etc…basically everything that is near you. You love to try to get it all towards the vicinity of your mouth. Heck, you’ll even suck on the table edge if you can get close enough. You must be teething.
Two days before you turned 5 months, you rolled over!!!! You went from front to back with purpose. You’ve since done it about a dozen times. We are so proud of you. Hoping that rolling back to front will come soon too!!
Baths are a nice way for you to relax before bed time and you are really enjoying the water lately. It makes me excited to get you into a swimming pool! I hope you’ll grow a great love for the water.
The months are sure zooming by, but I am loving every single minute that you’re in our lives.
Love forever from your Mommy
