So without further ado, Day 30: A picture.
Speaking of things going fast, Sweet Emily Kay is 5 months old today. FIVE. Look at her! She still has the munchalicious cheeks (and thighs), but my little newborn/infant is looking like a little person. It's crazy how fast this is going.
baby crack machine. (This is the greatest thing since boxed wine. Brooklyn still has her projection on the ceiling in her big girl room every night.)
Emily will sleep anywhere from 3-5 when she wakes up for a dream feed. And I've gotten lazy this time around. With Brookie, I always sat in the rocker in her room and nursed her back to sleep. With Emily, I take her into bed with us so I can nurse & sleep at the same time. This Momma will do anything for extra ZzZzZ's. So, she then wakes up for the day around 830-9. Thank Goodness we are out of the 4 month wakeful period!
Nap wise she does pretty well with putting herself to sleep. Her favorite place to nap is someone's arms, but she also likes her vibrating bouncer.
She is rolling from back to belly all the time. But still isn't rolling belly to back (I think her little hernia is causing discomfort, poor girl.) She still hates tummy time, but has gotten a little bit better at it. Especially if Brookie is keeping her entertained.
Remember Emily's 1st veggie experience? We're all better there now too...see? Evil Doctor Carrots!
We also introduced Emily to the jumperoo....as you can see, she isn't too psyched about it yet.
What else is going on with Doodlebug?....She's sitting up unassisted (only for about a minute, but it counts!) She had her first Thanksgiving and is gearing up for her first Christmas! I had to pack up all her 3-6 month clothes a couple weeks ago because this pretty lil chunk is in size 6 months. She has Marv/Kramer/Harry Dunn hair & it cracks us up. And it looks like I'm going to be out of the equation color wise again. Under the lights, her hair is turning blonde like Brookie's (and Daddys.)
She's such a sweet baby girl. So calm & quiet, only gets fussy when she's hungry or sleepy. And smitten with her sis. I love watching her with Brooklyn. Emily knows her so well & lights up whenever Brookie jumps or sings for her. When Brookie tells me "I love her! I love my seester!", I melt.
Happy 5th Monthday, Emily Kay! I love you so much, Buggy <3
