Rachel -- you are FIVE MONTHS old today!
You have stopped sleeping well, sadly. You now wake up three to four times a night to nurse. I think you are getting hungrier and Daddy and I have talked about starting you on solids earlier than six months. You are still a night owl and like to stay up until 11 or midnight but then you wake up between 9:30 and 10 in the morning. This is only a problem because your big brother, Sam, wakes up around 8:30 or 9 so I don't get to sleep much anymore. Oh well. I know this is just a phase. You still have your late evening nap although last night you skipped it but still didn't go to bed earlier. You still want to sleep for a bit about two hours after you wake up, sometimes only for one hour but sometimes for two. You are still pretty good about going to sleep on your own if you don't fall asleep when nursing. And you have outgrown your swaddle blankets so we've been trying to improvise with receiving blankets but they don't work as well.
This month you started rolling over all the way. You have rolled front-to-back and back-to-front. You rarely stay in one place anymore. This month you have also really enjoyed when Daddy does library rhymes with you especially "Today is the day they give babies away" and "Five bees." You laugh and smile at him. This is especially helpful because you are STILL teething without any visible results. You cry loudly sometimes, drool a lot and are always trying to stick your fist in your mouth. Mommy and Daddy say, "Come on teeth!"
