5 Months - So Close

Sweet Caroline is 5 months today! She is learning and doing so much these days that it's hard to keep up! I think David and I would both say that as each month passes we get a wee bit more excited about how much fun the girls are going to have together in a few short months when Caroline starts crawling/walking!

October 15, 2011 - 5 months

Here are some of the wonderful things sweet Caroline is up to these days:

  • she's still eating every 3 to 3 1/2 hours during the day! We are all food lovers in this house so she gets it honest.
  • we've not started rice cereal, but I plan to this weekend - will keep you all posted on how this goes.
  • she's smiling, talking and squealing a lot - it's quite entertaining!
  • she is SO close to rolling completely over - SO close that I have a video for you below - it's worth the watch and listening to my cheer leading - promise!
  • she is SO close to sitting up by herself, I think by next month she'll have it.
  • she is sleeping from 7:00 p.m. - 4:00-6:00 a.m. - pretty good - at least 9 hours most every night. We will continue to work on a consistent wake up time of 6 or 7, that will just take time.
  • she's still swaddled and on her back for night time sleeping; day sleeping she's on her tummy.
  • she puts EVERYTHING in her mouth - tries to eat whomever is holding her and loves her hands and feet.
  • still napping well - cat naps 2-3 times a day for 30-45 minutes and usually one long nap for about 2 hours or more during the middle of the day.
  • tummy time - she still does really well with this - much better than big sister did:)
  • you are a little girl - you're still wearing 3 month clothes and they are a bit roomy still - that's okay - dainty is just what little girls should be!
  • you've had your first cold this month, but it's not been bad at all - you're congested, but you've weathered it well and haven't lost any sleep over it (and neither have we!).
Happy baby ...

We love to try scoot out of the sitting position these days ....

What you lookin' at??

A little gymnastics .... (don't worry, it's not what it appears)

All smiles...

Silly girl ...

What a little beauty

My sweet, precious, little girl - we love you so much! God has truly blessed us with the gift of you - we can't wait to see what the rest of the journey holds!

Ladies and gentleman - our SO CLOSE 5 month old just this morning:
