Sadie: 5 Month Update

Sadie is 5 months old.  We went for her 4 month check up and turns out she has a double ear infection! YIKES! Doesnt it make you feel like Mom of the year when something like this slips by you? Anyway, Sadie's favorite new toy is her "Sophie-girl".  Its a rubber giraffe made for teething.  Poor girl MUST be teething somthing fierce because she must be chewing on something AT ALL TIMES.  Sophie, anyone's finger that will let her, her car seat, her thumb, etc. 

FOOD.  She just recently started baby food and she LOVES IT.  She kicks her arms and legs and you can't physically feed her fast enough without her getting antsy for more!! I usually mix a little oatmeal with a jar of food to thicken it up a little bit, she has not tried anything she doesnt like yet so on the list of her favories are carrots, sweet potatoes, green beans, spinich & pear, and squash. 
She also still really loves Sophie the giraffe, baths, laughing, smiling, being tickled, her big brother Colt, all of Colts toys that he will let her play with (usually his batman or superman figures and he doesnt even mind when she gives them back to him slobbery), being thrown up and caught in the air, looking at herself in the mirror....especially when she has a bow in her hair (she thinks its hilarious), amd sucking on her toes.

Tummy time, anytime after 3 hours and 1 min without FOOD (you could set a watch by her eating schedule.

What she is doing:
-Still sleeps great, from about 9pm to 7am (when I wake her up) like clockwork. 
-Drinks about 5ea 6oz bottles/day + 2 jars of food
-She CAN roll over but doesnt do it much, she really doesnt like being on her belly and most times she gets very mad and then ust gives up and goes to sleep if you lay her on her belly.  Colt was the same way, I thought he would never learn to crawl since he spent ZERO time on his stomach.  Guess it runs in the family!
-She can sit up on her own for a little bit then topples over.
-Still no teeth, although she drools constantly and has her fist, her feet, someones finger, etc in her mouth chewing at all times.

What I love:
-Her CHUNKY little (read: BIG) thighs, I think they are the cutest things in the world.
-Her all gums open mouth smile
-The sound of her laugh when Colt is trying to make her smile, I used to think Colt was the happiest, easiest baby on the planet but I have changed my mind.  Its SADIE.
