My munchkin at 5 months:
-Sits unassisted without even using her hands for support for long stretches of time
-Is able to achieve forward movement through army crawling and “inch worming” I’m sure crawling is right around the corner
-I’m about 80% sure she has the edge of a tooth through her gums on the top left
-Constantly babbling, giggling,smiling, wiggling
-Is very interactive with people and toys and is starting to show preferences in both areas (ie. she loves her stacking cups and hates strange men)
-Loves: bathtime, her exersaucer, belly kisses, seeing her mommy and daddy, hearing our (fake) laughter, nursing, playing with her feet and sucking on her big toe, stroller walks
-Does not love: sleeping…ever….sigh, getting her clothes changed (does not mind diaper changes though- considers them a great chance to play with her feet), too much tummy time- gets frustrated trying to crawl
I’m planning on making a five month update tomorrow, but for now, just look at the difference in theses pictures. Four months on the left and five months on the right. Holy growth spurt batman!
-Mommy is playing with her new iPhone
-Daddy is playing with his new iPad
-Baby is playing with her new iPacifier (just kidding it’s just a regular pacifier, and it’s not even new just a different type than she is used to. I found it in her closet and I wondered what she would make of it. She keeps sticking it in her mouth, making a disgusted/ confused face, pulling it out and staring at it and then sticking it back in)
This day last year I was 11 weeks pregnant! This was my first bump (bloat) photo!
Not even 5 months old yet and she sits unsupported like it’s no big deal
New habits: thumb sucking and side sleeping with one leg crossed over the other
Sunday selfie: basement cuddle fest
Transformation Tuesday: 1, 2, 3, 4!
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s SUUUUUPERBAAAAAAABY!!!!
On the one hand she is so much more interactive and playful, on the other hand sleeping habits have gone way downhill.
On one hand she is full of infectious laughter, on the other there is the whining, oh my goodness the whining.
And then there is the nursing habits. I’m suddenly having trouble telling when she wants to nurse. Sometimes it’s all the time and if she hasn’t been fed in two hours she acts as though she’s starving. Then last night she pulled her first “nursing strike” waking up every hour between 10pm and 4am and flat out refusing to latch the entire time. I’ve heard nursing strikes can indicate teething so I’m hoping this passes and things get back to normal.
