Its been a busy summer, getting settled back into work and establishing a routine with Kylie. She is 5 months old now and doing great. She can roll over and she rolls everywhere! If I leave her for a few minutes on a blanket on the floor, I never know where she is going to end up. It seems like she wants to crawl too, she is pushing her little butt up in the air with her legs. So cute. She is grabbing at everything and everything goes straight to her mouth. She loves her toys, its so much fun watching her grow and learn new things. No teeth yet, still drooling like mad though. She smiles and laughs constantly, she is such a happy baby.
She's doing great with my MIL and besides the incident where my MIL gave her water (!) to help her get rid of the hiccups, everything is going smoothly on that front.
I took her to the pedi last week for a shot and I weighed her when the nurse left the room and she was 16 lbs., 3 oz.! She is growing like a weed. I am still nursing, but only at night. Sleep has been a whole other issue. We have a bedtime routine at night, which she does great with. She's usually asleep by 8:30pm. But still wakes up several times during the night. Which has been really hard on me with work. I think we are going to start her on rice cereal this weekend, so I am hoping that will help with the night waking. Even though everything I've read says that's a myth.
Question about introducing solids, do we offer the rice cereal with every meal or just once a day? I've been doing a lot of research, but can't seem to find the answer to that.
Glad to hear everyone is doing well and all the kiddies are happy and healthy!
