I can't believe it friends! My baby girl is 5 months old today! The past month has brought so much growth from Miss T. She's rolling from her back to her tummy now. She still hates to be on her tummy though. She loves laying on her back, playing with toys. Her favorite thing is to hold a toy, chew on it, and roll from side to side. It's pretty darn adorable if I say so myself.
She's been doing raspberries and licking her lips like crazy. She also will stick her tongue out.
Everything goes in the mouth. We've stopped using the baby gym as much because she was getting frustrated not being able to get the hanging toys in her mouth.
We've taken a huge turn in the sleep department. This month brought a huge regression in her sleep....and I mean Huge with a capital H friends. We've always struggled with naps, but she started having trouble at night. She would want to nurse constantly. We were co-sleeping, so she was snuggled right next to me. I loved the snuggles, but was not a fan of her wanting to nurse all night long. It was pretty exhausting. No one was really getting sleep and we all know Mama needs to sleep to be able to keep the house running smoothly.
I started reading The No Cry Sleep Solution. It was recommended to me by one of you sweet friends. It's been a game changer. I'll write a whole other post on what we did, but for now I'm celebrating sleep. Last night she only got up twice and she slept from 8 am-8 pm. It was magical friends. Babies have a way of making you appreciate sleep. :) We are only on day 3, so we still have quite a road ahead of us, but I am feeling really hopeful.
She's still Breastfeeding on demand and we don't plan on introducing any solids till after her 6 month check up. I'm hoping to do baby led weaning. I need to read up on it first. Any book recommendations?
She's still in 6-9 month clothes, sitting and standing with assistance, and cooing up a storm. Her squeals are the cutest!! Oh and her sweet little chubby hands are the best!
Oh and she has a serious calf roll. Gaw! She's squishy!! I show it off in this daily vlog.
I'm working on a side show of her first 6 months for next month's update. I can't wait to share!
Have a fantastic day lovelies!!
