Five Months Old!

Today Cassandra is five months old! Only one more month until her half birthday-crazy!

She finally bumped up to size 2 diapers for the day and size 3 for overnight.  She's still wearing mostly 3 month clothes.

She nurses every 2.5-3 hours during the day. She's still an early bird for bed-she's ready to go down around 7! She sleeps about 12 hours overnight waking up usually twice to eat. She's getting on a better nap schedule now. She does a morning nap about 2 hours after waking up in the morning. Then she'll do an afternoon nap 2 hours after waking from the morning nap. Some days she'll take a third nap around 5pm that's really short-a half hour or so, just to get her through until bedtime.

She's had a busy month. She has rolled both ways. She went belly to back first (Avery was the opposite) and does that more frequently. She went back to belly only once so far!  She also has started reaching for and grabbing onto things.  She also found her thumb! A big milestone was that we unswaddled her for sleeping. And Cassandra adjusted just fine. I did a few nights with one arm out, 2 nights with both arms out, then moved her to a sleep sack with no issues. Thank God!  She also made her first visit to the Strong Museum!

Here are her pics for the month:

And for fun, here are Avery's five month pics!
