Heidi – today you are 5 months old! Everyday your little personality grows and its so adorable. You love to talk constantly. In the mornings I will hear you talking in your crib before I get you up for the day. When I peer over the rail to pick you up is when she flash your brightest smiles. I love that time in the morning with you. You are still in a size 2 diapers and you are wearing 3-6 month clothes. There are a few 3 month outfits you can still fit into, but not much longer! You are still breastfeeding and you are such a good little eater! I am so thankful that you are able to bounce back and forth between me and the bottle.
There are not any signs of teeth coming in, but you sure like to stick everything in your mouth! It hurts when you chomp down on our fingers! You love to grab your toes and you love to suck on them! Speaking of sucking….sometimes I catch you sucking on that little thumb when you are in your crib sleeping. Usually its after you are fast asleep and the pacifier has fallen out. Then again, sometimes you throw your pacifier across the crib – maybe its to get that thumb!
Heidi had her 4 month check-up a couple of weeks ago. This little chunk is weighing in at 15lbs 10ozs
percentile) and is 24 inches (42nd
percentile) long. I guess she gets the non-height from my side of the family 🙂 The 2nd
round of vaccines were given 😦 She had a fever and was really fussy when we woke up the next morning, so we knew that it would be best for me to stay home with her. I didn’t mind, but I did not like that she was not feeling so well. John was off that day as well, but she really just wanted her mommy. By the end of the day the fever finally went away due to some extra TLC and a little childrens tylenol
We were given the okay to start rice cereal and then in a couple of weeks to begin veggies! A couple of weeks ago was the first cereal experience! I think its going to take a lot of practice for Heidi to learn how to eat from a spoon! She kept trying to suck on it like a bottle 🙂 I spent the past weekend making some baby food and freezing it into cubes. Heidi will soon be enjoying green beans, butternut squash, and sweet potatoes.
Heidi celebrated her first Halloween! It was spent at her boyfriend Dane’s house along with a new prospect Jacob. The kids were so cute together! We hung out over there and watched the GA/FL game.
Our little Miss Priss
is sitting up and hates to be laying down. She loves to play with our phones and will call me all the time now from daddy’s phone. It is not a new thing to catch her rolling in her crib in the morning time – she thinks its just the greatest thing ever! Heidi loves to laugh and smile and pull my hair. Anytime we are holding something she wants to hold it as well – always reaching. Heidi can reach her arms out for us to pick her up and she can reach for things she wants to play with. It is absolutely amazing how much she is doing now and how much personality she has. It is easier for her to be in her own room now and the “checking on her” has gone down to a minimum instead of every 10 minutes 🙂
