5 Month update

Sweet Pea is now 5 months old! I can't believe it. It's so much fun to see how she's grown over the months, in past pictures. (1 month2 months3 months4 months ) She's learning new things every minute of the day. She's still working on rolling from her back to belly, but nearly got it last night. She grabs everything she sees now, and it goes straight in the mouth. She grabbed my bowl the other day, and nearly spilled my cereal/milk all over both of us. She watches my every move while I'm eating. She's very curious, but nowhere near ready for solids of any kind. We may wait an extra month, seeing as how she's thriving just fine on her milkies.

She loves to stand up, while we hold her. She gets so excited whenever we clap for her. And she loves to blow raspberries! It's how she communicates. We'll do it to her, and then she'll answer back. I'm trying to introduce baby sign language into our daily lives, but I keep forgetting to do it.

She's full of smiles, but we rarely get giggles from her. We have to act like complete fools to get her adorable laughs, but if we do the same thing we did last week to make her laugh, she looks at us like we're nuts.

She arches her back if she's not happy now. If she doesn't want to be held, she'll wiggle and squirm and then arch her back to get away. This is also how she almost made it to her belly, from her back.

She's mainly wearing 6-9 month clothes now. A few 3-6 month onesies will fit, but she's been in bigger jammies for a few weeks now. Her weight gain has slowed down a bit. Which is just fine because, she's growing up waaaay too fast!
