5 Months Old :)

26 Jun

Today, Kyler turned 5 months old. She is ever changing and is becoming more and more fun every day! She is becoming such a big girl. She is practicing sitting up by herself (she can only do it for  a little bit), she clearly “gets’ things now, and I have a feeling we may be retiring her favorite playmat soon (tear). With her new love of rolling over, she could care less about the toys dangling overhead anymore. As soon as we put her down, she flips over a second later. While this is exciting, I am a bit sad because it feels like an end to an era!

Things Kyler Loves:

  • Rolling Over – I can’t keep this girl on her back anymore! Yay for more Tummy Time! She even rolled over yesterday and slept on her belly during nap time. Which makes me nervous…. but I know they say if they roll over, let them sleep!
  • Chewing – She chews. On EVERYTHING. Anything is fair game to her.
  • “Talking” – Screaming, cooing, giggling, or a mixture of them all. She is becoming more and more vocal.
  • Smiling – She is a happy baby. Most of the time 🙂 She loves to smile!
  • Water Bottles – She stares at water bottles (or any bottle really) and gets very excited when you hand one to her.
  • Cell Phones – I have to hide my phone from her now because she just wants to grab it and chew on it.
  • Puppies – She loves her puppies now! She tries to pet them when they come near her 🙂
  • Mom & Dad – She clearly knows who takes care of her and when she sees one of us from being away from us, she lights up ❤
  • Ocean Rattle – Currently, she has a favorite rattle that she loves to chew on.
  • Books – She still loves the books!

Things Kyler doesn’t love so much:

  • Food – She still DOES NOT like food. She hates it. All of it. But we try every few days and keep trying. She is still pretty young so I hope and pray she will pick it up soon!
  • Staying in one place for too long – The child still gets bored quickly. Daycare asked me the other day if she was fussy at home and I had to remind them that she gets bored and likes to change activities often. They said last week was better 🙂
  • Sleeping through the night – Sigh. The past 2 weeks, she has been waking up quite a bit looking for her paci. I hope, pray, beg that it’s her mouth bothering her or something else temporary and she starts sleeping again.

We go to the doctor’s in a month for a 6 month check-up. We went to the doctor today do check on her rash, and she is 16 lbs 2 oz! She has slowed down in the weight department but we will see where she stands in height in a month!

She is wearing 6 month, 6-9 month, 9 month, and a few 6-12 month clothes now. She can wear a size 2 shoe but they are getting a tad small. Her size 3 Nike’s almost fit so looks like we are moving up there. Crazy!

July 4th is coming up and we are looking forward to that! Just like Easter, Kyler will be rocking July 4th – Red, White, and Blue outfits all week. I think I counted and she has 4 outfits, a bathing suit, and a pair of PJ’s. Yes I know, a little ridiculous, but she is going to represent the U.S.A. in good fashion 🙂

We love our little girl!!!
