And suddenly she's five months old.
In the last month, she's had some big changes. The biggest being that she started at daycare, as you well know if you've been reading along. It has been an adjustment for everyone, but it's going well. She's always been a mama's girl, but lately she's downright obsessed with me. She follows me with her eyes wherever I go, she looks for me when I'm not around, even contorting her body to find me, she usually wants me and nobody else, especially when she's not happy, and her favorite place to be is hanging out with me. I'd like to think that'll never change.
She's very talkative, though not with actual words, of course. But she's quite vocal, and even discovered how to screech VERY loudly (and in public places). She loves to stand (with support) and prefers that to sitting. We try to pull her from laying to sitting, and she keeps right on going into standing. She's not rolling yet, not fully anyway. She rolls from her back to her sides, but not all the way over. And when she's on her belly, she's content to stay put. She has rolled once or twice, but not in awhile, and she doesn't show much interest in it. She loves her feet though, and her hands. And she reaches for anything that comes anywhere near her hands, and it goes directly to her mouth. She may be teething. She keeps showing signs, but then there's never any tooth (or even roughness on the gums).
She's still sleeping through the night. I was worried that being so thrown off at daycare would mess up her nights, but for the most part it hasn't. She no longer has a consistent bedtime as a result of her mixed up schedule at daycare, but once asleep, she stays asleep until it's time to get up in the morning. She's also still a terrible napper. I'll take a good night sleeper over a good napper though. She naps fine at daycare, but in the evenings and weekends when she's with us, it's a battle.
Her newest nickname is Peach (or Peach Pie, Peach Cobbler, Peach Fuzz, etc). For awhile her hair looked like peach fuzz, though now it's getting a bit longer and thicker. And blonde! She was born with dark brown hair, but it's growing in dark blonde. And she has fair skin, rosy cheeks and longass eyelashes.
We've been loving every minute with her. She's so much fun right now, and she's discovering new things all the time. I'm so in love with her, and I'm thankful for her every day. Truly, not a day goes by that I don't say thank you for this amazing child.
