5 Month Update

Tuesday, September 22, 2015

I cant believe that it has been 5 whole months since we were blessed with a happy and healthy baby, despite her arriving 5 weeks early. And it has been a whole year since we found out that she was on her way! CRAZY!

At 5 months Alana is doing great! She is starting to sit up with a little assistance and she wants to stand all the time. Of course we have to hold her when she does this. We started to feed her some baby cereal - so far she really isn't a fan. Her doctor said once she learns what to do with the spoon and seems more interested in food then we can move to level 1 foods.

She is also all about chewing on her hands! I wish she would stop but you try telling a baby what to do ;P.

A few weeks ago she had her first really bad illness and we were at the doctor 3 out of the 5 days. She had a horrible cough that she lovingly gave to her dad <3 p="">

We are still hanging in there. Our days are pretty jammed packed with taking care of Alana and 2 dogs. A few times I have let myself think about giving one of our dogs to a family member when she misbehaves.

This past weekend Matt was the sickest I have ever seen him and we tried our best to keep him away from Alana. I will say it was really hard doing almost everything on my own. We managed, and while he watched her nap I was even able to go out and mow the yard!

With summer coming to an end we are finally having cooler mornings and evenings here in the Houston area so we are able to take Alana for walks and to the park. We took her on her first swing and slide adventure a few weekends ago! Now if we can just get our highs out of the 90s and into the 80s our weekend days will be much more enjoyable!

Hope you all had an amazing weekend and are having a great start to your week!
