Lilly-I cannot believe that you are already 5 months old! I look at your newborn pictures and it's hard to remember you as that tiny baby because you are so big now and getting more and more independent. We just love watching you grow daily and learning new things. To see the world through your eyes is such a blessing. You are such a blessing. We love you so much baby girl! xoxo
Eating: Your eating has become a little inconsistent. We are still giving you 5oz bottles, but only sometimes to do take the whole 5oz. Then other times, you down it like you've never had a bottle before in your life. Ha! You just never know!
Sleep: Still sleeping like a champ for us at nighttime. Mrs. Camille says you take good naps for her during the day, but on the weekends we have a hard time getting you to nap when we are home. If we are out and about, you usually sleep in the car while we are driving or in the Boba wrap- so that's great. At home though, we are holding you and napping with you most of the time. I don't mind though, you will only be this little once so if you want to sleep for a couple of hours on my chest I will savor those baby snuggles!
Firsts: You had your first overnight stay in a hotel in Chicago, along with your first time being in a big city. We also took you to the zoo for the first time and you attended your first family reunion as well. Also, Mommy & Daddy had their first date night without you after they took Nana, Hunter and Hannah back to the airport. It was the first time they left you on the weekend and it was so hard. You stayed with Grandma and Grandpa Donaldson and were such a good baby for them. You were asleep in your crib when we got home. I almost woke you up with all the kisses I gave you! :) Oh, you also found your feet and your ears this month!
Clothes: You are officially out of anything 0-3mo. You still wear 3-6mo clothes, but I know those aren't going to last much longer. There are some 6mo outfits that we put on you too-it's strange. Some fit and some are big...so we just try things on a lot. You sure do have a lot of clothes!
Diapers: You are wearing size 2 diapers. We have tried size three, but they seem to leak so we are back in size 2. Won't be long and you'll move up to 3's I am sure!
Playing: You love playtime and your jumper so much. This month you really started to be interested in more toys and will reach for them and pick them up now. It's so fun to watch you! You have a strong grip and will grab something and hold on for a long time. My hair and necklaces are no longer safe! You also like the teething rings that we can put in the fridge. We introduced you to those a few weeks ago and you liked them! Also, you have found your ears and like to play with them. Feet will be next!
