Aiden: Five Months

Tuesday, January 26, 2016

Hello, I'd like you meet my grown up child. At five months, she's basically ready to get a job and her own apartment. Seriously, how is she already five months?!

(this little smirk!)

She's the cutest thing in the world. Here's what's been going on this month….
  • When we got back from the hospital she went through a really cool sleep regression where she literally didn't sleep at night. Adam and I would take turns just being up with her the whole night. We let this go on for a week before we decided to let her "cry it out" to put herself to sleep. The first couple nights were brutal, but now she's totally fine. We don't let her cry it out when she wakes up in the middle of the night because we know she's either A. hungry or B. in need of a cuddle… and she's still so little! 
  • She still eats every 3-4 hours (nights included).
  • She discovered a fun, new high-pitched scream. She does it when she's really excited or really mad. 
  • After a hiatus while she was sick, she's back to chatting up a storm. She recently started making this "geeeee" noise and it's adorable.
  • She's also working on her smile repertoire - she now does a fun lower lip bite and a scrunchy, closed mouth smile. When she's flashing you a big smile, she does this crunch movement where she kicks her legs as far as they can go and basically tries to do a sit up in your arms. She's the cutest, what can I say?
  • She loves the cold. We took her for a walk when it was frigid and she just giggled the whole time. I think this also has something to do with her loving the outside.
  • She's becoming very interested in our food and drinks - I have a feeling she's going to be more than ready when it's time to start food next month!
  • Her hair is growing into this amazing mohawk. 
  • She's really reaching for things now - like Papabear's glass of wine at dinner. 
  • She finally rolled over! From her back to her belly (Jan 15) and belly to back (Jan 16). Such exciting times for an infant.
Here are some cute videos from this month….

Each month gets better and better. Oh, how we love this child.
