Jenna, how can you already be 5 months old? Time is really flying by and I want to keep you at this age for as long as possible! You are just the sweetest little thing.
You are still such a content baby. You go with the flow, whether that mean having hotwheels zoomed over your head, or being constantly interrupted during nursing sessions because Mommy is needed elsewhere. I can set you down to run and break up a fight, and when I come back you are just patiently waiting for me, smiling and cooing. (Or undressing yourself!)
I started feeding you solids last week, just for fun. I'll probably do a separate post next month about my approach to feeding you because I'm trying to do things differently this time around. I started you off with homemade brown rice cereal.
Your new "trick" this month is sticking out your tongue.
I had some setbacks with your sleeping habits this month. Once you learned to roll over I had to stop swaddling you because you would get stuck on your tummy. I dreaded doing this because I knew you wouldn't sleep as well. And I was right. It has been much harder to get you to fall asleep by rocking and nursing. One night last week I had tried everything and you just wouldn't go to sleep. I finally just placed you in your crib and left the room. And what do you know....you fell asleep on your own! You have done this about a dozen times since then, for both naps and bedtime. Yep, you're pretty much the perfect baby.
