5 Months!!

Lily is now 5 months, I can't believe its already been 5 months since she came into our world, and at the same time I can't believe its only been 5 months- I just can't imagine life without her!

She is now eating cereal- she has had rice and oats and seems to prefer the rice cereal! She is also kind of back to sleeping through the night- she does wake most nights once or twice for her beaka, and the odd night she wants to eat around 4am. When she wakes up each morning she giggles and coos in her crib, it is adorable! When I go in to get her I get the biggest, most beautiful smile ever! Speaking of big smiles- she is getting her first tooth!! Right now we can just see that a little bit has broken through, but we can feel it and her checks have been rosey and she has been putting everything she can in her mouth, especially her fingers!

I think she is going to sit on her own soon, she loves to be sitting up in our laps and she always pulls her self to sitting when we lean he on a pillow- but she goes all the way forward, its so cute. I also think she is getting close to rolling over- we practice during tummy time- which she still hates!

Lily is so much more aware now, she smiles and laughs when we sing the itsy bitsy spider. She laughs on the swings at the park, and she smiles and 'talks' when I push her in the stroller! She is really enjoying her teething rings, Sophie (as always) and her fingers, lol. She loves to pull her beaka out and put it back in, she is so excited when she finally gets it back in!

She has started to play strange a bit this month, but I think its a combination of becoming more aware of where Mommy and Daddy are and her teething.

I can't remember if I missed anything- but I probably did- she is changing so fast and doing new things everyday!! I love watching her grow and do new things- she amazes me everyday and I feel so privileged to be her Mom- I thank God every day for that.

I will load some pics from this month in another post :).

Thanks for reading and please feel free to comment on any posts you would like. When Lily is a year old I am going to print off this entire blog, including comments and put it together with a baby book for her so one day she can go back and read all about her first year!
