Lilah 5 months old

Dec 13, 2012 - 2 comments

Lilah turned 5 months 3 days ago. She's such a happy baby! :) She's pretty quiet as well. She LOVES her big brother, watches him and smiles big every time he comes to talk to her. Brady loves Lilah. When she cries he calls her name and runs for her. When we are out and about he is always showing strangers his little sister. It's too cute.

She still feeds about every couple hours during the day and will be sleeping around 9. She gets up around 2ish and again around 5:30. Which isn't bad.

I fed her cereal for the first time a couple weeks ago but she wasn't ready. I tried again last night and she did fairly well.

She has started teething I think. Lots of drooling and she rubs her tongue on her bottom gums a lot. She's rolled from her belly to her back but nothing else yet. She's come close to going the other way.

I think she may be allergic to the dog. He just went to stay at Grandma's for a couple months to do a trial run and see if that's really the problem. She's been congested since birth. It's like she has phlegm at the back of her throat all the time, she itches her nose and eyes and sneezes a lot.

I've noticed I've been extremely agitated lately and just not myself so I have an appt tomorrow at the doctors to talk to her about it. I've also noticed that at times I feel my hands are really sore and stiff. I'm hoping it's more of a breastfeeding thing but I will talk to her and see.

Awww happy 5 months to your Lilah♥ I am soooo happy Brady loves his baby sister! That is the sweetest bond, I hope my next one is a girl so she can have a big brother too!

Do you think your agitation can be a little post pardum? I have always thought about that for me. I just hope I don't get it. I hope the doctor can figure out why you feel that way and find a solution.

Ya I always wanted a boy first  and then a girl so he can protect his little sister!! :) Dreams come true!!

I've thought about PPD, that's the main reason why I made the appointment. I never would have thought that I would get it...hopefully I can find something out. I'd hate to take meds because I'm breastfeeding but I'd rather my kids have a happy mommy. Same for my hubby!
