5 months

Last Saturday, October 20th, our little peanut became 5 months old. Apparently October was a month of firsts. I have a strong feeling that from here on out, we will begin flying fast with development.

Here are a few things that have happened just this month.

You began rolling over. From your back to your belly. You pretty much hate tummy time, so once you get on your belly, you scream. What babies do when they are awake, they usually do during their active time of sleep as well. This meant we had to transition you out of the swaddle, because it was now a safety issue. That was tough. Nonnie was over on night two of that, and she was not a happy camper as you were crying, but we knew you were ok. You just had to get used to falling asleep without being swaddled. Sorry, Nonnie!

You finally fit into shoes. Let the fashion begin!

You are sitting in a bumbo chair. Your neck still isn't super strong, so we don't let you sit there long. Because you hate tummy time, this is a good time to exercise your neck a little, though.

You are finally willing to take a different pacifier. Your dad thinks these are cuter. You found your fingers and suck on them as well. It's fun to see you watch your hands and feet. You are amazed that you can control those things! You are also becoming a champ at nursing.
**side note for the nursing moms out there. I had to have her on a shield at first, but she is starting to get the hang of things without it now, so there is hope for those moms of preemie babies who learn to eat from a bottle in the beginning! Just don't give up and surround yourself with supportive friends!

Thanks to your Uncle Paul and Mrs. AmERICA, you wore your first costume.

**We are not huge fans of Halloween and dressing up, but you have to admit, she is one cute zebra.

Enjoy some more photos from this month.
