{Cecilia Rose's 5 month update}


You are another month older already! I feel like I just typed up your last update and now here you are, 5 months old. My, my, slow down little one.
 





Growth
You haven't been weighed in awhile but we guesstimate you to be around 13.5-14lbs. You are wearing 0-3 month clothes (not for much longer) and 3-6 month sleepers. And we have you in size 2 diapers now. Your feet are tiny and still fit in size 1 shoes. We aren't sure your length but you are just a short little thing still..we are always rolling your pants up for you.

Temperament
You are still the happiest little thing for us and Milania. And still the crankiest little thing if any stranger approaches or even looks at you. You're holding on tight to this stranger anxiety but we are working on it.

Besides that you love to watch Milania play and have started laughing a lot more lately. You will giggle when she drops a book or when she starts dancing. You are also all smiles when you first wake up from naps and for the day and it absolutely melts my heart.

Milestones
At 4 months & 1 week you rolled over for the first time and that very same day, you did it probably 15 more times. You haven't stopped since! It is always from back to belly though, as you haven't mastered belly to back yet. Once you get rolled over, you are so upset to be on your belly but don't know what to do except cry! So we flip you back and then you roll back to your belly again. Its never ending!
 
As I mentioned above, you have really found your laugh now. It melts my heart every single time I hear it!
 
You are officially taking bottles (of breastmilk) now as well as nursing! You don't love them, I'm not sure you ever will, but you will take one which is a huuuuge step for us.
 
Sleep
Sleep is about the same as last month; sometimes good, sometimes not. You slept from about 11-5 one night which was the longest stretch you've gone so far! You woke up at 5 thinking you had missed something though and were ready to start your day...mama, not so much. You are still in the Rock N Play to start the night and our bed by morning; we will get to the crib...someday.

Halloween 2015

It comes as no surprise to anyone who knows Milania that she was Minnie Mouse for Halloween. And who is Minnie Mouse without a sidekick, Mini Minnie Mouse?!
 
 
 
Last year at this time Cici was just a little seed in my belly and Milania having just turned 1 didn't understand. She wore the costume and went to visit family and friends but didn't understand any of it. This year however, things have changed. Cici just being 4 months old didn't have a clue, and we were unsure how it would all go with Milania but after the first 2 houses in our neighborhood, Ryan and I smiled at each other as we both knew she understood that all she had to do was walk up to a house and grab candy and leave! She LOVED it. So we totally went trick-or-treating this year, for real!
 
I pushed Cici in the stroller (she was in her infant seat with a blanket and the cover over her seat) and Ryan carried/walk with Milania from door to door. She would go up to the house, smile, grab some candy, and turn towards the next house. When given the opportunity, she would ALWAYS go for the sucker. I'm not joking, I think she came home with about 20 suckers!
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
We had so much fun making new memories with our two little Minnie Mouses. When I laid my head on my pillow that night I told Ryan "my heart is so full".
