5 Months

Little Miss Sunshine is now five months old and loving life more than ever. She's constantly on the go and is such a happy little baby.

Sydney probably had the best day of her life on her five month birthday. Usually Syd wears a furry sleep sack at night, but she had fallen asleep without it the night before and I couldn't bear to wake her up just to put it on - so she went sans fur coat for the night and evidently partied like a tiny rock star because she rolled around and twisted all night in her crib.

I, on the other hand, barely slept a wink out of fear she'd suffocate. It didn't help that when I was about to go to bed and realized she had rolled over and was sleeping on her tummy, I immediately googled to see if she'd be okay and proceeded to read tons of horror stories about babies suddenly dying - WHY did I do that to myself?!

Anyway, because Syd can roll over both ways, she was totally fine and woke up with her usual happy cooing. I fed her, took some five month pics, and then away we went to the pool!

Wake up, Daddy!!

This frickin' kid...we love you, T!!

Talon grabbed Sydney's hand while we were watching a movie...I can't even.

At five months, Sydney...
  • Is eating 5-6 times a day, including "solids" at dinnertime
    • Loves eating solids and has tried mangos, prunes, carrots and butternut squash, along with rice cereal and oatmeal pre-mixed with bananas
  • Sleeps throughout the night (has been since about 2.5 months)
  • Sits up on her own(!!)
  • Can hold her bottle while eating but is smart enough to know she doesn't have to
  • Rolls around like a boss
  • Can WAVE! Yes, wave! She doesn't do it often, but if she's alert and has a full tummy, she'll start to mimic you waving (with her hand facing her, of course)
  • Is starting to say "mama," and in my own delusions believe she knows it means me
  • Is also starting to get a little separation anxiety from Mama...eek!
  • Laughs (a lot!)
  • Loves peek-a-boo and small stuffed animals
  • Is still wearing 0-3 and 3 month clothes...but over the past weekend, we have started to transition her to all 3-6 month clothes

Sydney Belle, I can't believe you're already five months (five-and-a-half now, I guess) old! You are the light of our lives, and we love you more than you could ever know. Happy birthday, sweetheart!
