Ro is getting sooo big! Both her little bottom teeth are about a quarter of the way up now! She’s also yet to encounter a solid she doesn’t like! When I move (the 11th) and get settled in, I’m going to start making her baby food for her! That way I’ll have a wider selection and I know what’s in it.
Ro will be nannied by my friend Elise from now until August. Now, as in a week from now. Come August my Aunt Margaret will be coming to Cary to watch her for me!
I don’t know if it’s because of the baby food, or maybe her diapers have been on too loosely, but her poo’s have been EXPLOSIVE. I literally had to dig in her belly button to remove the poo. It was not pretty.
Also, she’s been napping much less now. She’ll take one, maybe two naps a day and that’s it. But in return, she also had a more set bedtime. She’s always knocked out by 9:30. Sadly, though, she’ll be up around 7 am. Which is only sad because as she now takes only one naps most days, the evenings are when I can have some ‘me’ time…and that ususally lasts till midnight.
Also, these past couple of days she’s been waking up every 2-2.5 hours to eat. It’s been crazy. From 10pm to 7am this morning she ate 4 times!!! Ugh! SLEEP, baby! So that’s NOT fun, but I think she’s going through another growth spurt…she’s due for one!
When we move to the new apartment, I’m going to put her in her crib at night. She still sleeps in the Fisher Price rocker thing now, but she’s way too long for it and she is trying to sit up these days, so it’s not a good combo!
Speaking of long, she’s almost outgrown her infant carseat! She was 26 inches and 13.1 pounds when she went to the doctor a couple of weeks ago. She’s in the 75th percentile for length, and 25th for weight. But her carseat is for babies UP TO 29 inches! Eek!
But my god, she’s 5 months old! Ah! She’s really smart. She makes different cries depending on hat she wants, and WHO she’s ith, which is the most suprising thing to me. She’ll make the “some one has ripped my skin off and only you can make me better cry” with my mom anytime she sets her down, the “HOW DARE YOU SET ME DOWN I WILL RUIN YOU” cry with me when I set her down, and I’m not sure hat she uses with her father. hatever works best. My mom is a push over, and angre doesn’t ork as well as pitiful does. I’m more of a hard ass, and if you’re fine there’s no need for all of that pitiful buisness. So she gets angry. It’s pretty funny.
Also, she has conversations with me. She did it with Jason, her gran pa too a couple days ago. she’ll hold eye contact with you, scream, and then wait for you to scream back…or make any happy noise. Should you ignore her, you’ll either beak her spirit and she’ll cry or she’ll soften and loose intrest. But as long as you do it back to her, she’ll go on for hours!
So that’s been this past month so far! I’ve been really bad lately about posting baby things, which was pretty much the point of my blog there for awhile.
I’ll do better :)
