Baby Journals – 5 months Old, Minnie-Jean
Hi! Welcome back to another baby journal post. I can’t quite believe that I have a 5 months old baby ago this beautiful little angel entered our lives. She’s changed so much in that time, her character is getting stronger every day and I’m starting to really get glimpses of what she’s going to be like in the future.
Minnie is still continuing to sleep through the night, we find now that she sleeps from around 10-10:30 pm until around 9 am in the morning, meaning we all get a really good rest ready for playtime in the morning. Minnie never fails to wake up from each and every sleep or nap she has with a massive smile and it’s really a pleasure to see, she’s such a happy and cheerful little baby, so we definitely know somethings up with her when she’s having a seriously teary episode.
We’ve started to wean Min now and she’s doing so well with it and she most definitely has a sweet tooth, her favourite tastes being prunes (which I can’t bloody stand!) and to be honest pretty much anything fruit-related. She’s having four bottles a day as well as her baby food and she’s a very happy baby. (If you’re interested in weaning your baby this site has some wonderful tips; Weaning tips)
She’s now much more interested in her surroundings and the toys we give her to play with, she is now happy to spend hours laying on the floor, squirming around and bashing all her toys that make noise whilst blowing bubbles and making an extremely odd hissing sound. (that seems to be her new thing!) She’s also massively interested in animals, which is good because we have a lot of them and luckily, they don’t shy away from her either, Bundy, our conure is especially fond of snuggling up to her for afternoon naps.
She’s almost on her way to sitting up now, she can hold herself for a few seconds but then gets a jolt of excitement and goes tumbling, it won’t be long now before she’s completely sitting up unaided and I can’t wait for that. she’s also started to enjoy playing peek-a-boo, guaranteed every time you play it with her you’re going to get a giggle out of her.
