5 Months

That monthly picture is the best I'm going to get from here on out; kicking and flailing her little arms is like her favorite exercise.
The other picture was taken for her aunt Allison's birthday, and I LOVE IT: her face, those little peace sign jammies & that Target notepad.

March brought some warmer days which was awesome because we could finally cure our cabin fever.

THIS happened. Our doctor told us at her 4 month appointment that if she seems ready, she can try solids at 5 months. She would literally lick her lips while she watched Chris and I eat, so there's that.  We'll probably wait until she's 6 months to incorporate solids into everyday.

Bow: Eola Ella
She celebrated her first St. Patty's day. Ugh, there is just something about babies in t-shirts and leggings.

Okay these headbands I have to rave about.  The fabric is awesome, I got to pick out which headbands I wanted for each bow, and there are a TON of options. Not to mention that she has awesome prices and customer service.

Diet: Still nursing 5-6 times. 

Sleep: So we haven't gotten past the sleeping in our bed barrier yet BUT we've gotten the napping in her crib down, YAY!  She'll usually take 2 naps each day in there lasting anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours.  If we have an off day and she doesn't fall asleep in her crib after like 30 minutes, we'll just stick her in her swing and that always does the trick.  
We're trying to work on making her bedtime earlier, like 8 PM rather than 10 PM with us, and along with that trying to get her to wake up earlier, like 8 AM rather than 11 AM (queue Emoji embarrassed face).

Milestones: She grabs her tootsies! and she loves them, anytime we lay her down she'll instantly reach for them.
Tried bananas
Will finally sleep on her belly without any complaints, I think she finally realized it's the most comfy way to sleep
She made a full circle around her Bright Starts exersaucer
She can kindaaaa sit up on her own for like 5 seconds then falls right over stiff as a board.
SHE GIGGLED! I was starting to think she wasn't born with a sense of humor... ;)
She wriggle worms her way around. Now if she could just figure out how to get up on her hands and knees she'll be golden.

Favs: Being nakey
Still loves the baby carrier, she can literally be in it for 2 hours and still be content..I tried it..at Home Goods.
Aiyley and Cayden (her 3 1/2 year old aunt and uncle) she LOVES to watch them play.
Chewing on everything. Other than the extreme fussiness she shows every sign of teething.
Falling asleep sitting upright while Daddy holds her like so:


Not so Favs: Still not a huge fan of tummy time, but she's getting better at realizing that she can easily flip herself back over.
She's starting to not like her Vitamin D supplement, I don't blame her.
Laying on the same play mat or sitting in the same exersaucer for more than 20 minutes.
