My sweet Claire Lula turned 5 months old yesterday. 5 months old. I say this every month, but I absolutely cannot get over how quickly time is passing by.
She grows & changes so much every day. I love it & hate it at the same time. Time needs to slow down.I simply do not have the words to express how much I love this girl. It's indescribable. I know I am preaching to the choir, but I never in my life imagined loving a human being as much as I love Claire.
She still looks a lot like her daddy, but I can see the shape of my eyes coming out. She's also got my long limbs. I'm still holding out that she'll have my blue eyes, but they are looking more like hubb's hazel color. Who knows.
It's so hard to get her to smile for pictures now! She used to cheese it up as soon as she saw the camera & now it's the opposite! She sees the camera & the smile disappears. She definitely gets that from her dad.
Here's what the Lu is up to:
*She's still in size 1 diaps.
*Eats 5 oz of breast milk every 3 hours. Waiting to start solids until after her surgery in March.
*Wears 3-6 month tops.
*Rolls from back to belly & belly to back. When she wants.
*She's definitely an assisted sitter.
*Has zero interest in bearing weight on her hands during tummy time.
*Loves to "stand". Maybe she'll skip crawling all together? Hehe.
*Sleeps from 7-7 in her crib. Wakes up occasionally at 4am to eat.
*Reaches & tries to grab everything. & then it goes straight to the mouth. Namely her feet.
*No signs of teeth.
*Has discovered fake coughing to get attention. So funny.
*Responds to her name & looks for us when she hears our voices.
* Loves music & books
& yes. i'm still exclusively pumping. Go me ;)
One thing I have noticed, the older & smarter Claire gets, is that she is getting "bored" with her usual toys, i.e. her playmat. She lasts maybe 10 minutes on there these days before getting bored.
Those with babes around Claire's age, what have you found that keeps your little one entertained? She does love her jumperoo, but I can't just have her sit in that all day! I feel like I need to find some other little things she can keep herself busy with. She also gets bored with me pretty quickly, too. HA!
I think that pretty much sums her up for month 5. omg. She's going to be a half year old before I know it. Time, please
stop slow down!!
Thank you for all of the responses to my previous post! I definitely can't complain about not having anything to read now! I am going to work on following all of you! So don't worry!
