This sweet baby is half a year old!! 6 months came so much faster with Brielle than it did with Sophie! Happy half birthday, sweet baby girl!
This past month (so when she was 5 months old), she's been rolling a lot. If I place her on her back, she almost immediately rolls to her belly. The downside is that she doesn't really like being on her belly for long.
She has began to push herself backwards and right at 6 months began sitting up on her own.
She also has began babbling this past month and said "dada" once, although I don't think she really knows what she's saying yet :).
She finally took a bottle this past month- twice! She's also been more "needy" this past month. She whines when I leave the room and is more needy of attention.
Her schedule is fairly similar to last month's, but she stays up a little later now. She typically nurses at 6am, 8am, 11:30/12am, 2/3pm, 5pm, and 7:30/8pm. She takes one long nap every day (2.5 hours, on average) and then 2 shorter naps (somewhere between 45 min and 1.5 hours). Typically the long nap is in the morning. Occasionally she needs a fourth nap still.
Loves: Stroller rides, people, chewing on things, being held (especially by mommy), sitting up, swinging outside, being outside in general, baths, jenny jump up
Dislikes: When mommy walks away, being on her belly for very long
