Emily is five months old today. She started eating food: cereal, green beans and apples (all mush). She seems to enjoy eating at nighttime. We are falling into a routine, some days. Most days she has us scratching our heads wondering what she's doing or why she's doing it. She tends to sleep in 45 minute intervals 3-4 times a day and she eats every 3 hours.
She enjoys riding in the swing at the playground as well as playing with toys. She also really enjoys chewing on her toes. At bedtime she might be crying or whining and the minute we take her clothes off to give her a bath her mood changes and she is happy and even laughing. She 'talks' a lot, most often when she's getting tired. It's funny and can be surprisingly loud sometimes.
She has us on her toes! We constantly compare her to Nolan. The parts that were really hard with Nolan, she's breezing through. The parts that were really easy with Nolan, Emily finds difficult. She has a hard time when other people hold her, aside from Dave or me. She has also, at times, rejected the bottle. Her routine is all over the place, whereas with Nolan's routine was like clockwork. She really enjoys being in a carrier and will nod off while in the carrier pretty easily.
