Alex 5-6 month update

Poor second child. Mama has no time for monthly updates. And taking photos with my real camera has already gotten hard and too time consuming with her crazy older sister running around. 

This girl has already come so far since her 4 month update. She’s rolling both ways with ease now. She can sit independently for only a second or two before falling. She is scooting a little but mostly goes backwards(and gets trapped under furniture) Already gone are the days of laying her on a blanket and her being in the same spot for more than a few seconds. 

We started feeding her solids at 5.5 months and she loooooves them. We are making homemade purees for now. She has already had: bananas, sweet potato, peas, green beans, apples, carrots, and avacado. She has also had oatmeal and I even put some peanut butter in her morning oatmeal a couple times. She loves it. 

She is still not consistently sleeping through the night. Some nights are worse than others but she usually only wakes up once for a bottle and goes back to sleep. She’s a pretty good napper though. She usually takes 2 two hour naps and then sometimes one shorter nap before dinner. 

I call her my sensitive soul. She doesn’t like loud sounds very much and can get overwhelmed easily. She’s already had two incidents where she cried the whole time in child care situations. She definitely prefers mama if she’s hurt or overwhelmed. She likes her dad and grandparents but she calms down much easier for me. 

Day to day though she is a happy, easy going girl. She loves her toys and already plays independently pretty well. I love seeing her figure out the world around her.  I’m bracing myself for how quickly things change in this 6-12 month stage, but I’m excited to see who she will become in the coming months and years. 

One photo with Sister because just look at these two… I’m in trouble!
