reese's 5th month

Saturday, March 12, 2011

reese turned the 5 month corner while we were in florida so we are a little late on our update...

reese is busy watching everyone do everything these days, watching very closely. she is not yet rolling over, but hangs out on her side quite often.  she is able to sit for several seconds on her own, swaying quickly leading to tumbling over sideways.  we're getting there.  she babbles all day long and she has now started to talk herself to sleep.  priceless.  she appears to be teething; everything not only goes in her mouth, but she chomps down hard on it.  so far no other symptoms and still no teeth.

we have introduced solids and she loves them.  she was hesitant at first, but now she really enjoys it ALL.  she is currently eating rice cereal and oatmeal cereal with different mix-ins: apples, bananas, green beans, peas.

we are still working on her sleeping through the night though most nights she will go for an 8 hour stretch or so before waking up, usually only waking up once, occasionally twice.  we are also working on getting her to go to sleep without being rocked to sleep...a HUGE that seems impossible and a form of pure torture for all of us.

we are checking in with the pediatrician again on her six month birthday.
where has the time gone?
