Five Month Update

Anne actually turned 5 months old last Sunday.  This week has been a bit busy, so sorry for the delay.  Anne has really started to show her personality.  We just love her more every day.  She is still not a huge fan of tummy time but she likes it more than she used to.  She loves to meet new friends, as long as mommy and daddy are around.

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.
