Guess who is five months old today?
Yep, Baby Bea is speeding through these months and I can not believe it’s already been five! As N and I were reflecting on this last night I told him, “there’s not one thing I would change about her.” And it’s true. I literally cannot think of a single thing that is frustrating, annoying, or difficult that she does. God must have known that I would need such a mellow, easy going babe for my second because that’s exactly what I got. I think we’ll keep her 🙂
Here are the views we have most often seen this month:
She is finally interested in toys and spends about 90% of her waking hours on her belly. Putting a few toys in front of her keeps her entertained for the longest.
Hands in mouth. Always.
Sitting up with a little help (Big Sis is always there with a willing hand/chokehold). Also tested out the Bumbo this month and she will sit for a few…especially if sister is doing something entertaining.
These fingers! They are grasping EVERYTHING they can reach. Watch out if you try to hold her while you eat: I’ve had multiple plates/silverware/bowls flung onto the floor. She is deft!
She finally has enough (thick, gorgeous) hair to hold just a clip! So fun! But I also discovered “girlie glue” this month and watch out because I am about to devote an entire post to it. Total game changer.
Though perhaps not at first glance, she is a big fan of the Beco. Once again, even more so if sis is doing something entertaining.
Bea has also been so fun and giggly. She has this amazing ticklish spot right in the folds of her neck. Gets her every time.
She has tested and approved the Jumping Jane. MG thinks it is Bea’s personal swing and likes to “push” and “spin” her in it. So cute![youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOuFW7R3Lak&feature=youtube_gdata%5D
Sleep has been a breeze this month. I usually rock her to sleep but sometimes she wakes up when I lay her down in her crib. In those times, I’ve experimented a bit with “crying it out” because I’m not exaggerating when I say she doesn’t cry. She usually lets out a few grunty protests and then eventually finds her thumb and nods back off.
She is wonderful.
