Polly is 5 months

Already!  Next month she will be 1/2 a year old.  I cannot believe it! We all love her so much.  She makes us all smile every day!  I cannot imagine life without our PJ!

Eating: Polly is nursed five times a day and takes 5 oz pumped bottles when I am away.  She usually eats at 7a.m., 11a.m., 2 p.m., 5p.m. and 8p.m.  She started rice and oat cereals a week ago and loves it!  We usually give her cereal around 6pm when we eat dinner. 

Sleeping: BabyWise continues to pay off.  She goes to bed at 8:30 and sleeps until 6:30-7a.m.  She usually naps 9:30a.m.- 11, and then 12:30-2.  She will still take a short hour long evening nap usually around 4:00. Sometimes we are on the go and she has to miss a nap or take a short one.  She is very adaptable and not a fussy baby.  We try real hard to get her naps in though!

Size: Polly is currently in 3-6 month clothes.  She can still wear a few 3 month onesies, but anything with pants she needs a bigger size for the length.  She is very long! She is in size 2 diapers but will soon move up to size 3.

New Accomplishments: she growls! It is a guttural, scary noise and is so funny coming from her tiny self.  She can hold her own bottle and is very good at eating cereal.  She gets most of it down. She doesn't seem to spit it out like I remember R & E doing the first few times they had cereal. Her supported sitting is getting better and her rolling too!  She can stay up on her forearms for a long time in prone.  She is very strong.

All in all:  She is the BEST!

Big bottles
She can even hold it herself briefly.

My big blue eyed beauty!
Trying to sit up in her rocker.

Best kisses.

Sweet hair
