Five Months

15.4 lbs.
Sleep....what's that?
Eating every 3 hours
Size 6/9 month clothes and size 2 diapers

Overall, you have been a precious, happy girl during the day Rowe! Nights and naps have been another story! Sleep, or the lack of it, is really all I can think of about this month. It was just a phase, and you are already moving past it. but it was a doozy. You went from a textbook sleeper: going to your crib drowsy, falling asleep and sleeping all night, napping three times, to reverting to your newborn ways. First you started waking every hour to two hours and usually wanting to eat, then you started screaming when you were put to bed, then you began waking every time you were put down asleep. It became this juggling act of trying to do everything just right and hoping for a little sleep. You also became very clingy to me. You would not let anyone else hold you without screaming. It's very flattering to be loved so much, but. This lasted for four and a half weeks, and then one day it all began to fall back into place. I did revert to your swing where you would sleep a little more, and you started eating rice cereal. At this point you are waking once most nights, taking very short naps during the day, and I'm beginning to feel human again.

It was a fun month of firsts. You visited Santa's Village, attended Christmas Eve communion, celebrated Christmas, celebrated Brennan's fourth birthday, attended his party, attended Elijah's 1st birthday party, drank from a cup,  and ate cereal. You take most every first in stride. You drank from the cup and ate cereal like you had been doing it every day. You were pretty excited Christmas morning, maybe it rubbed off from Brennan. You had your four month immunizations. You cried for a minute and were fine. You are starting to teethe. Your bottom gum is a little swollen and you are drooling like crazy. Your personality is popping out more everyday. You are a precious little lady that we love so much!
