The "Pey" Times || Five Months

Wednesday, January 13, 2016
AHHHHHHHH!!!! My baby girl is five months!! Every month gets harder in different ways and better all around, she is such a little devil angel haha. The last two months have been even crazier than the ones before, mostly due to the holidays and really just adjusting to an even more active baby. One of the main reasons I'm doing these "Pey Times" is because I want to be able to look back on these for my future kid(s) to come. Having said that, I missed out on month 4 so I'm sneaking in a few points on this post :)


Month four she started to roll from her back to her stomach which was really crazy for her age and was still in the 80% for her height. She was still wobbly but trying very hard to sit up and found her voice! At this rate she's going to be an opera singer *rubs temples*. Enough about her at four months though, let's talk five :)



F i v e  M o n t h s 

Height: 26.5 in.
Weight: 16lbs 9oz



Likes:

> Licking the dew off cold water bottles/ or beer mugs lol
> Her new car, thanks to Auntie Andee (She loves that sense of freedom, I'm in trouble)
> Her latest thing is cracking up at Lucy and loving to give Ricky hugs (He's the mushy one)
> Talking when your talking...She will even get louder and louder to get your attention!
> Still a total cuddle bug for her mama, follows me around the room with her eyes
> Rolling from her back to her tummy
> Her FEET!! She has successfully put her toes in her mouth, which I think is adorable :)
> She thinks monkey sounds are the funniest thing
> KISSES! If you ask her for one sometimes she will lay one on you, careful though cuz she'll suck your face! lol
> Still a major water baby, she knows the sound of the bath and gets excited
> We've reached the phase of EVERYTHING going straight to her mouth
> Watching Teen Titans and Paw Patrol, too early? lol Don't judge it's only so I can brush my teeth and pull myself together a little while she's slowly waking up.
> She also likes being told "Noooo", juuuuusssst great.
> Last but not least Pey LOVES Justin Bieber's "Love Yourself". Ever since her auntie Natalie sang her to sleep, she gets quiet and calms down when I play it and sing it to her. Haha crazy! The littlest Belieber. 

Dislikes:

> Sitting still while putting her diaper on, major wiggle worm
> Not constantly moving aka...restless body syndrome. Especially when feeding.
> Still has major issues with her carseat but it's getting better. And by better I mean listening to her cry a little before she passes out is getting easier for me to handle. She does have those crazy moments of simply falling asleep though.


From what I'm told, five months and up is where the fun is at! She is pretty much sitting up on her own and building muscle in her legs fast! However, she still is waking up at 11, 3 and 6am most nights, which makes for a tired mommy. The pediatrician has given us the go ahead to start slowly introducing foods (probably won't till she's closer to 6mo though) but I'm not liking the recommended rice cereal, full of starch and empty calories. I know the purpose is to start with gluten free and wheat free but I'm thinking of starting with cream of wheat mixed with BM, since it's easy to digest and has more benefits. Of course from there, introducing veggies and then fruits. What did you mommies start with?? I have a feeling she's not going to have any problems with eating since she's been grabbing at anything I put to my mouth for the last month! Let me know fellow mommies!!
