Five Months Old

I haven't been able to brag and share all about little Miss Larissa's monthly stats as I did with my son. Time slips by my and I've been so exhausted to keep up with blogging a lot lately and I hate that. I loved being able to write a post every day and share it. Maybe as the babies grow older, it will get easier.

Saturday Larissa turned 5 months old. Can you believe that? She's growing so wonderful. She's a sweet baby. Full of life, smiles non-stop and loves hugs. She also loves to let you know she wants to be held 24/7. She sure loves to cry a lot too when she doesn't get her way :) But that's what babies do right?

She still rarely sleeps. Maybe a couple of hours a night. She sleeps for about 20 mins and then up for three hours then back down again for another 20 mins. This goes for naps too. Her and Reg are on opposite schedules still so I'm always up with the both of them still all day and all night. My body is getting more sued to it though. Some days, it's harder and I feel so exhausted and others, I'm pretty good to go the entire day.


Larissa loves attention and she is now rolling all over the place. She rolls everywhere you put her down and goes all over the floor. Just rolls and rolls to get to where she wants to go. It's pretty funny. She also holds her head up amazing. So strong and healthy.

She babbles non stop as well. Always wants to tell you what's on her mind. She always has a finger in her mouth as well. She chews on her finger all the time. She's teething and it shows. She's not a thumb sucker or anything. Just likes to chew her finger. It's hard to get a photo of her without it being in her mouth.

She is still being breastfed. We are still able to keep going with that. And it makes me so happy. I'm so proud of myself for being able to keep a milk supply with her. I never have been able to with my other children. So this makes me feel so happy. Though, it's not always enough, I do supplement when I have to. But I nurse her 75% of the time.
