My Sweet Pea is Five Months Old

5th Month Milestones

We finally know how much you weigh because we finally made it to the doctor.  You are as healthy as can be and as of March 29th you were 6.2kg and 61cm.  At the appointment they checked your eyes, ears, and reflexes.  Everything is looking good and you're right on track.  Yeah!! 

You still like to wake up for a couple of feedings in the night but for the most part you sleep from about 8:00 p.m. to about 7:00 a.m.  You still shout at us when you're getting sleepy.  This months nap time was only a little bit crazy after we mixed up your schedule with traveling.  

Speaking of traveling, you have now been to three countries; the States, Germany, and now the Czech Republic.  We went on our first family vacation and we all really enjoyed the time together.  It did take a few days for you to get used to falling asleep alone in your own bed again but who could blame you.

You are playing in/on your playmat less and less these days, probably because you are so interested in sitting up and seeing the world.  While you're sitting up you will lose your balance and fall backward so we try and pad the area with the bed or your boppy.  Now that you're sitting up more and more you're starting to like your "big kid" toys.   

Your favorite food is still home grown, straight from the source - your momma!  You may be the fastest nurser ever, but when you want to take your time you do, stretching your nursing time out 30 or even 40 minutes.  

All in all you have made our lives so much sweeter, more memorable, and way more documented.


We love you Sweet Pea!!!
& Daddy
