This was an exciting month. We took Anne swimming for the first time. The pool was like a really large bathtub and all her friends were there, so she seemed a bit confused at first. I can't wait until she is a little more active in the water. We are debating doing swim lessons this summer. We can start them at 6 months.
Could she not be any more precious?
Anne is starting to enjoy books and her new favorite "game" is to wrap herself up in her floormat.
Weight: 12 lbs, 10 ounces (25%). She has doubled her birth weight.
Eating: We have started the process of introducing her to "people food." She tried peas and carrots during this month. She still loves to nurse about ever 2-3 hours, sometimes more often.
Sleeping: She has basically given up her daytime nap. Nighttime sleep usually lasts around 5-6 hours at a time. We have tried to stick with a bedtime routine of diaper change, getting lotion and "baby massage", putting on her sleeper, a bedtime snack, getting into her sleepsack, then ending with rocking or a walk around the house. Then we put her into her crib with her crib music player.
