{5 months}

Another month in the books, holy cow!  This month has really been fun, Lilly is changing so much and becoming quite the fun little kiddo!  She is so interactive now, and I absolutely love watching her learn new things.  Even better is her laugh - she is laughing more and more these days, at some of the most random things, but it is infectious.  You could be having the worst of days, and just a glimpse of her smile, or a snippet of that laugh and you are instantly cheered up.  It really is fantastic!  She mastered rolling over pretty quickly, and is now sitting up pretty well.  It sort of happened over night - one day she was just able to sit up on her own!  It seems like she can stay up longer and longer each day - although I will admit it's pretty funny how she slowly starts to lean to one side and eventually falls over.  :)  I'll tell you what though, seeing her sit up on her own sure makes her look big!  What happened to my tiny snuggly little baby??

Stats ~  once again nothing official this month since we didn't have a doctor's appointment, but my unofficial measurements have her at 17 pounds (!)

Size ~  split between 0-3 month and 3-6 month right now.  An in-between size of some sort would be perfect, as the 0-3 are tight, but the 3-6 are still a little big.  Daddy's the one that gets her dressed most days, and I'm encouraging him to start putting her in more 3-6 month things since we've hardly worn any yet and they are all summery!

Sleeping ~ I *think* we scooted by without hitting that 4 month regression I was so worried about.  There was maybe 2 nights where she woke up in the middle of the night out of the norm, but was easily put right back to sleep.  We did start the transistion process and finally moved her out of the Rock N Play sleeper and into the Pack N Play.  She did great with it, and we also started leaving her arms out of the swaddle with no problems.  She still sticks to her 7-8pm bedtime, and is up for the day around 6.  On the weekends, I can usually feed her at the 6am wake up and then get her to fall back asleep for another couple hours.  Her napping is very spotty...for a while she was boycotting them and barely getting 3 in at 30 minutes or less each, and then she came around and started sleeping a bit longer.  As long as she's a happy kid and still sleeping well at night, we just go with the (her) flow.

Eating ~  still on her same routine of eating about 6 times per day.  Some days just 5, but that's not too often.  We haven't started any cereal/oatmeal/purees/solids yet, the plan is to wait until 6 months and then jump right into table foods.  Daddy cannot wait.  I on the other hand, am in no rush.  I am the one that washes the diapers after all. :)

Likes ~ mirrors, Sophie the giraffe, cold teether toys (or the side of a cold drink...she may or may not suck on the occasional beer can), her caterpillar (the smallest and most boring of her toys, but man does she love that thing), bath time with Daddy, the Jumperoo, dogs - some of her biggest laughs have come from watching a dog run around.

Dislikes ~ not much.  There are certain times of day when she doesn't like the car seat (and boy does she let you know it), and she gets majorly fussy when she's tired.  Otherwise, she's pretty much all smiles.

Current Nicknames ~ boog, boogabooski, booski, Lilly Bean & Lilly Pie (both compliments of Aunt Sarah :)
