I keep getting behind on these! Between moving and doing a play and being a mom, it has been hard to find time. I will post a month and a half's worth of weekly photos as well and get back to doing that. But enough about that, lets talk about Alice.
She was 5 months on August 31st.
Alice is a smiley, happy baby--for me. She is not great (i.e. screams) for other people. She really loves me, which is really nice and sweet, but I feel bad for other people who want to hold her. She can be fine with other people sometimes and she will really surprise me, but other times she screams with fury. Her scream is really something to behold and quite impressive. She does loves her Daddy and Elanor and gets more comfortable with other people over time. My mom says my sister was similar and they could not leave her with anybody!
She is getting a bit better at sleeping. She sleeps a lot longer at night now, though still not all the way through. Naps are often still a challenge, but sometimes she'll surprise me and sleep extra long.
She has gotten really into grabbing things! Alice will grab anything within reach. She can put things in her mouth as well, rolls both ways, is almost sitting up (can sit for about 10 seconds unassisted), can lift her body up quite high on her stomach and she tries to scoot forward.
Alice has decided she loves baths now! She is a spastic little kicker and has provided much entertainment.
We have started feeding her some solid foods. She likes everything we have tried so far. We often just give her little bites off of our plates, but she likes rice cereal and apple sauce too.
