Hey friends!! How are you? Time is just flying by these days and I cannot believe Francy is already 5 months old. I just want to pause time right now. She is just so much fun right now.
We had a bit of a sleep regression this last month, but thankfully this past week has been great. She still gets up to nurse about once or twice a night, but I am not quite ready to cut those feedings because I really love our time together. 🙂 Now ask me that in another month and I may be over the middle of the night nursing sessions. 🙂
Francy as a pineapple for Halloween 🙂
Francy’s current favorites: riding in the car, taking walks in the carrier, being outside, momma singing to her, bathtime, sitting in the high chair like a big girl, music, and ofcourse, the DOGS! She is literally obsessed with them and stares at them whenever they are near. She won’t respond to me or Jon if the dogs are in the room…she just loves them. They like her too, but I don’t think the feeling is quite as mutual. 😉
A big first this month was trying food!! We have been giving Francy bites of purees and she loves it. I started with veggies and have let her have some fruits too. She is unsure about green beans, but will eat them. Her favorite right now is bananas. Yum!! I talked to her doctor about incorporating food and he was all for it so she has been getting a little bit each day. This has also helped because she isn’t chugging down bottles and I am mostly able to keep up with her demands of milk, with maybe a bottle of formula thrown in every other day.
I don’t have a specific time I will stop breastfeeding, but it is currently still going well for us. If we make it to 6 months, I will be happy, if we make it to a year, I think I deserve a nice reward from my husband. LOL. ;). It is hard work and pumping all day in between meetings is quite the accomplishment, but I know it is worth it.
Francy had a check up last week at the doctor and she is over 15lbs now (in the 65% for weight). She is growing like a weed. She has come a long way from being in the 10th percentile for weight when she was born.
She has started smiling and giggling a LOT. She is still a very happy baby. My favorite time of day is when I go to get her up in the morning and she is just smiling and as happy as can be. It starts my day off in the best way.
Francy dislikes: being put down, when the bottle is finished, and car rides when we are stopped at a red light.
My husband is the king of nicknames.. don’t ask how many we have for each of our dogs, but I thought I would share the continually growing list we have for Francy at the moment.
Francy pants, Franny, Fran, Franny girl, Angel, Angel baby, Angel face, Missy, missy girl, baby doll… there are more but I will stop. 🙂
Just enjoying every moment with our sweet girl and can’t wait to see what this month brings!!! XOXOXO
