5 months!

Ashley is going to be five months old in six days. I felt this needed it's own post. :) It's unbelievable how fast the time as gone and how much my little monkey has grown!

From about 3-4 months, she wasn't sleeping very well at night. She was waking every two hours. It was exhausting — for her and for me. Somewhere around 4 months and week though, she decided to start sleeping again even better than before! I got 8 hour nights for a week straight!! Then she regressed a bit and now she seems to be sleeping pretty well again. It's amazing how a good 5-8 hour stretch of sleep does wonders for both Ashley and I!

At 4 months, I started giving her cereal. She's a breast fed baby, so they say not to feed solids until 6 months, but she was always so hungry, especially around bed time. I give her the cereal about an hour before she goes to bed, and that seems to help... though it didn't at first. I'm not sure if this is what is helping her to sleep better, but I'll keep going with it. She seems to like the cereal too.

Ashley started rolling over at 2 1/2 months, but she was only rolling every now and again. In the last month, she rolls all over the place!! She also rolls at night, and if I wasn't using a sleep positioner to keep her in one place, she would never sleep because she would be rolling everywhere!!

5 months... wow.... FIVE MONTHS! It seemed like things were moving along slowly until I realized how much time has actually gone by. It's crazy!

And now... some pictures of Ashley... the best part of this post!

Random fact: I have over 2815 photos on my iPhone. 99.9% of those photos are of Ashley.... :)
