Gemma's 5 Month Update

Baby girl is growing so fast!

Thus month she's really started getting around. She figured out how to roll from back to front awhile ago but this month she really mastered going from front to back as well. Within the past week she's been  rolling all over the place.  She also tries to get on her hands and knees already and sticks her butt up in the air. I'm betting she'll be crawling next month. When she tries going forward now she scoots backwards.

She got hold of a piece of watermelon on vacation and loved it! She was so sad when I took it away. So I started giving her some solid foods. I know it's not really recommended until 6 months but, just like Elsie was, this girl is ready. She's tried banana, pear, apple, and squash. Loves it all! She doesn't have much of the tongue thrust reflex left either so she isn't really spitting it back out. She's still breastfeeding too, no bottles or anything. I'll be starting a sippy cup in a month or two.

She absolutely loves watching Elsie and is always smiling at her. It's so cute!

We just moved up to size 3 diapers and she's wearing 3-6 month clothes primarily.

Hmm what else...

Oh she also started liking  being in the jumper. I don't leave her in for long but she likes playing with all the toys in it.

Working on sitting up alone. She can for about 30 seconds at a time. She'd much rather be moving than sitting.

Also, still no teeth but lots and lots of drool.

And still cosleeping although she does sometimes nap in her crib if we are home.

It's so much fun watching her grow. Time needs to slow down!
