06 Feb Living with a 5 month old!
I can’t believe that little monster is five month already! Where does the freaking time go? I am trying to take in as much as I can because angel is growing and everyday there is something about her that I discover and watching her personality flourish is truly a blessing. She’s a little pest when it comes to sleep and no she doesn’t sleep through the night! I was in dire search of a magic recipe to make baby go to bed easily and stay asleep for the longest time possible. However, I decided that my baby just has different needs and I need to be more patient and offer her the attention she wants and deserve. Am I over “spoiling” her?? Possibly…but spoiling a baby is not even possible!!! It’s baby’s job to want you and need you and be totally dependent of you. I have plenty of time for that to come along with the no and I dint want to phase. For now, I am sucking it all in and although I get extremely exhausted and frustrated and want to jump out of the window, one of her smiles bring me back life. Is it worth it? Totally! For me anyway…
Last month, the pediatrician had me start her on solids and this is probably the best part of seeing her grow. Watching her discover different foods while expanding her taste buds is so hilarious. Her reaction to certain fruits and vegetables is quite fascinating and I find it so interesting how at such a young age she is able to decide what she likes and what she doesn’t. She is also and very obviously more aware of her surroundings and loves to explore what’s around. She’s inquisitive and wants to touch everything she sees and put it in her mouth; my hair included! She’s starting to teeth and that sucks because she’s a lot more fussier than usual and sometimes is too much to handle and when I get too overwhelmed, I leave the room for a minute to take a breather and come back to handling her with care.
So basically, living with a five month old is insane and I mean it in the best way possible and I will say it repeatedly; it’s a humbling experience! I have been going through a bit of a bumpy road and haven’t had loads of time to spend with her, but at the end of the day, when I come home to seeing her excitement melts my freaking heart away. She gets all flustered with happiness and doesn’t know what to do with it…then she started screaming with joy. It kills me!
