5th Month of Bliss

*size 1-2 diapers

*13 lbs. 12 0z. / 25 3/4 in.

*mostly in 3-6 mo. clothes and some 6 mo. items (can still wear a few 3 mo. items as long as they have no "feet")

*LOVES Mickey Mouse Clubhouse ("hot dog hot dog hot diggity dog" song stays in my head ALL DAY...)

*found a new chew toy- her feet; and likes to continue to chew on it

*her "babbling" is really starting to sound like words...just maybe foreign words, lol-is making the sounds "mum mum, yayayaya, dadadada"

*first "solid food"- rice cereal- She also took to "eating" right off the bat, most of the food goes in and stays in! (so far has also tried peas, carrots and green beans)

*when laying down, always rolls onto her tummy, and when flipped back over, does it again, and again, and again...

*found she can gurgle her spit, and does it ALOT

*does really well while out and about

*still eats about every two hours, but if she's distracted with something or we're out somewhere she can go without longer

*spit up came out of her NOSE for the first time

*got her first cell phone...Fisher Price style, ha (thanks MiMi :))

*drank through a straw!

*got her first TWO teeth (both within ONE week!)

*is starting to "scoot"...since we're seeming to be early on most developmental things, why not already beginning to crawl?! Oh and mind you, still not sitting up on her own though...

This is SUCH a fun stage. She's starting to be more of a little person rather than a "baby". Kind of sad to think about in some ways though. At least she still loves to be held and cuddled :) She is so extremely her how to do something just a couple times and she's got it.

We're still working on her night time sleeping. Since she's big-time teething, sleeping at night has not been good. I've started putting her in her crib. She'll go down by 9 the latest and sleep until 2, I'll nurse her and attempt to put her back down in her crib, if she won't have it, I just lay her in her pack n play in our room and she'll usually sleep until 4-5, she'll nurse again and then sleep until 8. I'm hoping after her two teeth fully come in that I'll be able to get some good sleep. I guess we'll see :/

I'm looking forward to this next month of fun firsts and adventures!!
