In a field of Roses , She's a Wildflower ( 5 months old )

5 months old....

Mommy is having trouble keeping up with these blogs! Times is flying by and its so hard to remember to take the time to blog. Life as a Mom, coach, wife, house keeper , and chef is making the days fly by.

My sweet girl has made some big changes over the past month! She is now sleeping in her crib in her room. This was harder on mommy than it was on baby girl. When we moved her to her crib she was swaddled but laying flat. She was waking up soon often so I tried to do the cry it out method and I just couldn't handle it. So instead I moved her to a 50/50 swaddle. She seemed to really like that so we went with it! It's baby steps for us ....

Sister girl started some baby foods. Things like Bananas, Carrots, Sweet Potatoes & Apples. She loves to eat. She is now a rolly polly....tummy time isn't so bad anymore! We are still breastfeeding and its going well so far.

She is wearing 3 month clothes and squeezing into 3 month sleepers
Size 2 diapers
Weighs 11 lbs and some odd ounces ?
She LOVES her paci
Car rides usually put her to sleep
She always smiles at her POP
Baths are still one of her favorite things
She has really started reaching and grabbing things
We are working on sitting up, she's still pretty wobbly right now
Being breastfed I don't know how many ounces she's getting but when she has a bottle she's getting 4 ounces and that seems to satisfy her!

Baseball just started for Bowen and I am helping Casey coach...Doing so added another level of busy to our lives but I am so thankful that MeMe , Nanny and Gram help out during practices with Bristol so that she isn't out in the weather so much. Plus she's getting some one on one time with grandparents! I make sure to pump so that she will have milk if she needs it while away from me. So far she is doing well with having more bottles than normal.

She is such a joy to be around! She has a big open mouth smile that can brighten anyones day. My heart knew that she was just what it needed. I love my Bowen and Bristol more than I'll ever be able to express....I just thank the good Lord daily for all the blessings he has given me.
