Happy 5 months Lily!

Lily is 5 months old today. Already? That was fast!

She weighs just about 16lbs and measures 25″.

Her mornings are spent at the park and the afternoons at the beach. She loves the swings and the ocean.

Lily can now easily roll over from her stomach to her back and from her back to her stomach. She is still trying hard to crawl and although she does move around, she has not yet mastered the art of crawling.

As far as food is concerned, she now eats rice cereal, bananas, apple and pear sauce, sweet potatoes, butternut squash, avocados, carrots, mangoes, broccoli, zucchini, peas and we will be trying tilapia today as a 5 month old gift. 😉

Lily’s sleeping patterns have been very consistent lately. She usually takes 2-3 naps during the day and she has for the most part been sleeping through the night, from 8pm until 5am. When she wakes at 5am, I bring her into bed with Will and I, I breast feed her and sleeps until 7-8am with us.

She smiles more and more each day that passes and we even got giggles twice yesterday. Something that we had not heard since she giggled for the first time. Lily is also quite vocal these days baby-talking up a storm!

Lily is a wonderful baby and we are so happy to have her in our lives. (tears of the purest happiness) 🙂

P.S.- As much as she has grown and changed, some things never do. She still rests her hand on my chest between my breasts when I breast feed her. It’s the sweetest thing.

Here are Lily’s little toes 3 days after she was born and below that, Lily’s toes last week. Lily’s hand resting on my chest while being breastfed also 3 days after her birth day. And, a 5 month old Lily today playing in her crib wearing babyGap pajamas that were a gift from uncle Darren.
