Annabelle is still on the small side. I don't think that at month 5 she has jumped way up on the growth charts. She is getting some cute baby fat rolls, but still seems quite petite.
Sleeping habits: With all the transistions that have been going on in our lives, Annabelle is still not sleeping through the night. I am ready for her to, but she isn't ready to, so I will survive. I know that she will sleep through the night at some point, and that will be a happy day (night) for me, but until then, I will do my best to meet her needs, even in the middle of the night. She usually nurses 1-2 times during the night. She is doing well at napping during the day. She is still napping 3-4 times during the day, and is still pretty much on a 3.5 hour cycle. She is trying to drop the last nap of the day, which I am hoping will help the night time sleep. :)
Eating habits: Annabelle is still just on breastmilk. Because she was born with something laryngomalacia, a "weak" larynx, the pediatrician in NYC wanted me to wait to start her on solids until she was seen again at a 6 month appointment in Atlanta. So for now, no solids, just breastmilk.
New Discoveries: Annabelle is rolling quite well from front to back and back to front. She is also sitting pretty well with some support. She loves being on the floor with some toys and being able to roll around. She also loves being in the exercauser. She is finding her toes and putting them in her mouth these days, which I personally think is adorable.
Places I went: Just after Annabelle turned 4 months old, we made a big move to Atlanta. Sadly, Annabelle will not remember that she was born in Brooklyn and spent the first 4 months of her life in NYC. Even sadder that unless continually reminded, her older brother who was 3 at the time of the move will probably barely remember living there. I wish I could capture so many moments for them so that they will be able to remember them... b/c what precious moments they are. Since living in GA, we haven't left the state. We did drive 2 hours south to Gordon, GA where my parents are currently living.
