Annabel is 5 Months Old!

Today Annabel turned 5 months old!  Time gets faster & faster.  Slow down!

She wasn't too smiley in these pictures today because I took them right after she woke up from a 3 hour nap.  I think she was a bit still out of it.  

What is Annabel up to at 5 months?
  • Sleeping with her arms out of the swaddle!  Woo Hoo!
  • Sleeps 12 hours at night with me waking her at 5am for meds & a short feeding
    • If she does wake in the night, she puts herself back to sleep eventually
  • Takes two naps a day; morning & afternoon
    • morning nap 30-45 min
    • afternoon nap 2-3 hours
  • Eats a solid food at supper
    • has been only eating cereal 
    • tried avocado tonight, but wasn't a big fan; we'll keep trying, though
  • Thinks her big sister is the funniest thing ever
    • Adeline lives to make her laugh.  She does stuff we tell her not to do just because it makes Annabel laugh.  I told Jon we better get used to it because they're going to be ganging up on us like that their whole lives.
    • When Adeline was this age Tulip was the one that could always make her laugh.  I don't think Annabel even knows Tulip exists.
  • Is grabbing any & everything she can get her hands around
    • Has started grabbing her feet lately and trying to get them in her mouth as well
  • Can prop-sit
  • Can push up on her arms when on her stomach
  • Can roll both ways
  • Sometimes sleeps on her side now
  • Loves to stand in your lap or in the exersaucer
  • Nurses 6-7 times a day
  • Wears size 2 diapers
  • Wears 3-6 month clothes
Annabel, you are our beautiful little sweetheart and we love you so so much!
