As fast as our baby is growing I am really enjoying that she is staying a “baby” a lot longer than her brother. She is such a content baby. I can put her in the swing, bouncer, high chair, jumparoo, or just laying on the floor and a lot of the time she will just smile and play. Not always, of course.
She is now weighing in at over 15 pounds. But is still fitting nicely in her 3-6 month clothes. She even has some 0-3 month clothes she can wear, mainly the pants.
She is still taking three naps a day. Her main nap (which is normally about 2 hours) is at the same time her brother, and the kids I babysit, nap. That is a life saver. I think I would go completely insane if I didn’t get a little bit of time to myself a day.
She is a pretty quiet baby. She does babble, but is normally pretty content to be quiet. We were driving on Mother’s Day and she decdied that would be a perfect time to babble “dada.” My husband and I looked at each other and I told him “No, she did not just say dad on Mother’s Day!” Of course, she did it again later with more witnesses.
Current Likes: Car rides, mommy, being talked to, and being tickled.
Current Dislikes: (Same as last time) Getting her nose wiped, being held by anyone not classified as an “adult,” and tummy time.
New Accomplishments: Consistently rolling from her back to tummy, using her elbows to help hold her head up more, scooting forward when on tummy, more babbling, and sitting for a second or two without help.
Next month she will start eating food! She mimics us eating while at the table. It is pretty cute. So I know she is getting ready for food. I am not. Nursing and table feeding a baby takes forever! Oh well, I can’t keep her on milk forever.
