5 Month Update

Well T is about 90% crawling now! Beating P out by about 3 weeks. I still say she isn't really crawling, but she can move across the floor where she needs to go by scooting/pulling her way slowly. She is up on her hands and knees a lot trying to figure out the crawling thing for real though. I imagine within a week things will get interesting.

Because of her increasing mobility, she is going after P's toys. This makes P a little upset, but I think she is slowly getting over the fact that T will soon be all over all of her toys.

We have pretty much dropped the dream feed and she is sleeping in until 6:30ish too now. This means she eats at 6:30ish, 9:30/10, 1ish, 4ish, then 7ish and down to sleep. She sleeps all the way through from 7:30 (by the time she actually is asleep after eating) until 6:30ish in the morning. And she hasn't been waking up at all at night either which is awesome!

She can sit up a bit on her own, but not all that well, she is way more interested in moving and crawling and being on her belly.

I haven't tried to feed her any solids yet, but meant to test out something over the weekend like bananas. Maybe this weekend.

She still spits up a lot and drools a ton too. I attribute this to the fact that she can't sit still and wants to be on her belly all the time trying to crawl or move. We soak through a lot of bibs every day. I am still squeezing her into some 3 month stuff, but I should put her into 6 month stuff since that is what actually fits her right now!

She loves P and loves watching her run around. She loves to giggle and laugh and is typically a very happy baby. Here are some pictures!
