5 months!

Well Miss Maren tuned 5 months old yesterday. This month flew by and we are just absolutely having a blast. She gets more fun, a little sweeter and cuter everyday. {I may be a tad biased, but hey I'm her mom}!
We had a some big and exciting things happen this past month.

Happy 5 months!
She loves having her tongue out!

She likes the jenny jump up!

and her jumparoo

Still loves her baths and just look at those yummy rolls!

We got our first tooth! Whaaat!? Its all the way through now a sharp little sucker at that.

We still love our swing and take most naps in it.

another big thing that happened was that we finally weaned her from the swaddle. It took a good 2 weeks, but she is doing great now with both arms out. We started off with 1 arm out for a week, then bit the bullet last week with both arms out. It took her only a couple of days to get used to it. So that's a huge relief.

Most of her days she is super happy and content.
 I'm so very thankful for that and that she has been healthy so far!

Another big thing that happened was that she rolled over both ways. She rolled from her back to belly first {and only once} then a couple weeks later did belly to back {and only twice}. She has yet to do it again, but I guess will do it on her own sweet time. She just wanted to make sure we knew she was capable I suppose. Ha. We like to call her miss independent.

Other things that have happened:
-We just moved to size 2 diapers, still a little big, but her rolls were spilling out on the ones.
-She wears 3-6 month tops and still in 0-3 pants. Most 3-6 month things are still too big on her.
-She sleeps from 9:30/10-6:15/7 then is awake an hour or so and goes back down for a 2-3hr nap.
-She stills loves her car seat
-She is super alert and just takes everything in by concentrating pretty hard
-her head control is getting really good, and we are working on assisted sitting
-I'm down to pumping twice a day so she gets more formula than BM now, but is doing great with it.
-We are probably going to giver her some rice cereal or at least try in the next few days!

I'm absolutely loving being at home with her and grateful I get to do that. I feel like I just can't get enough of her and that my heart may explode... ok not really but I'm definitely slightly obsessed!
