Month 5

Dearest Brynn,

Happy 5 months love.

You are 5 months now and I can't believe it.  It feels like time is flying but at the same time that you have always been in our family.  You have really shined this past month.  You are such a sweet girl, I can't stand it!  This has been my most favorite month of all so far, as you are so much more interactive.  
You have completely lost your little newborn look and now look like a full on little girl baby.  The prettiest little girl baby might I add!  Your cheeks are filling out and I seriously could just kiss them all day long.  I seriously could!  I tell you everyday, and you will probably go to school telling the teacher and other kids this as much as we say it to you, you are just oh so pretty!!!

You are so independent, yet oh so needy!  You want constant attention..and you demand it.  You have perfected a whine these days that basically means I am over whatever we are doing at the moment and you better change things up fast!  & you know what...we do!  I run around like its my job to keep you constantly happy..never letting you get upset or cry!  I think I may be spoiling you...but is that even possible?  I don't know.  Just love you to pieces and is it.  Plain and simple.

You are such a lover these days.  You love love love to be kissed.  It makes you laugh over and over.  Speaking of laughing, you are doing a lot more of it these days.  I have figured out that you will giggle up a storm if I put my nose on your tummy and wiggle my head back and forth.  Or if I put you on my knee and pretend you are riding a pony.  Or if your puppy is going nuts and being silly.  Needless to say I do these things daily just to hear that sweet sound.

You are mommy and daddy's world.  You are the best part of us.
We love you to the moon and back princess.

Mommy & Daddy

Sleep: You have officially figured out how to find your comfy sleep on your belly now.  I put you to bed on your side but you quickly find your tummy.  You will flip your head back and forth side to side until you find what feels just right.  You always need your paci and lovie.  You take that little lovie and rub it against your face and I could just die at the cuteness.  So you are back to being able to sleep though the night except now we have a new problem!  You pee way too much!  I know...sorry for the tmi...so embarrassing right!  Well you do..you are the pee pee machine as me and daddy call you.  You are filling up your diaper and leaking through your jammies by 4 am every night.  I have tried many tricks and all diapers and nothing is working!!  Hoping to find a solution soon..because we just cant go on like this.

Feeding: We attempted solids again in an attempt to stretch your time between feedings to 4 hours.  I did this by giving you oatmeal around 11am once a day.  It worked and you would wait 4 hours for your next bottle.  But...the next three days you whined...all day... I mean all day.  Nothing I did could make you happy.  You woke up every hour of the night and I thought we were going to lose it.  Until it crossed my mind that maybe its not the teeth and its the oatmeal.  I quite the oatmeal and within 24 hours you were back to oatmeal.  I think your senstive tummy is just still not ready.  We will try again at 6 months.

Firsts: first time eating in a restaurant.  You were very well behaved...and super entertained by trying to eat a cinnamon bagel.

Milestones:  You rolled over from tummy to back.  Now you can roll and roll and roll like a means of transportation!  It is so funny.

Favorite toy: Still love Sophie.  Love your crawl ball..and musical piano.  You officially reach for all the dangling toys on your play mat.  You also love to stand on your mat and hold on to the bars.  You think you are so big and look at us like "look at me!"
