// Here we are... a week late, but another update! Hope you guys liked those pics of Micah and Hannah above. Let's just say, you take what you can get at this point! ;) Micah just woke up from a nap... and I may have bribed him with fruit snacks. :) #reallife #theyarestillcute
She is 16.2lbs (60th percentile) and 26.5in (75th percentile). So far she is ahead of where Micah was on the growth chart at this age! I keep saying this, but if she keeps it up they may start looking more like TWINS. ha!
This month has been GLORIOUS as far as sleep goes. Hannah is taking two great (2+ hour) naps during the day and sleeping ALL NIGHT (insert praying hands emoji) - 8:30pm to around 8:00am the next morning. Sometimes I will answer a middle of the night cry, but I don't mind. I am always up for a little snuggle. ;)
Size 3 diapers and 6-9 month clothing.
Still nursing. Although, it has decreased to about 5 times per day since we introduced solids. And boy, let me tell you, she LOVES her some baby food. I mean, she can't get enough. It's actually quite funny to watch her eat. She gets hysterical around dinner time if we are eating and she isn't. HAHA. I have to make sure I have her baby food already sitting beside us at the dinner table ready for her. I'm going to slowly start introducing a variety of foods and letting her eat alongside us, like I did with Micah, as she develops more motor skills in grasping and putting things in her mouth. But right now she is eating peaches, bananas, sweet potatoes, apples - all with a little rice cereal mixed in.
This month was all about the TEETH. She got her two bottom teeth a few days after she turned 5 months! I felt like they came out of nowhere. One day, after much drooling and fussiness, I looked inside her mouth and saw two white spots under the skin. The next day, the first tooth broke through! The next one came within the week. She is also rolling everywhere lately and sitting up very sturdily by herself. She is also trying to scoot herself towards things by doing this back arch thing where she can, literally, arch her back and plop a few inches backwards. It's kinda scary when on the changing table. Besides all the moving around, she is grabbing, chewing and laughing at everything in sight. Also, she's starting to babble a lot more syllables. Josh is certain he heard, "dada." Of course. ;)
Being with people, listening to music, watching our dog, Heidi, and her very entertaining big brother. :)
She dislikes being the only one NOT EATING at dinner time. hahahaha
Things I Don’t Want to Forget
I don't want to forget how beautiful and sweet her personality is. She is absolutely adoring of everyone and everything. My heart is just overwhelmed sometimes at the amount of love I have for both of my little ones. I am honored that Jesus has chosen us to be their caretakers. She is growing so fast and I absolutely want to remember every detail. I said this on an Instagram post recently, but this month is one of my favorite milestones. I really feel like Hannah is starting to develop her personality and grow into herself a little more. She is an absolute joy for us!
