Claire's 5 Month Stats

5 Months 1 day - 13lbs 8oz and 24.25 inches long (birth - 6lbs 7oz and 20 inches long)

Claire is doing wonderful! She has started rice cereal in the mornings (now today, she will start rice cereal in the mornings and at night!) The first couple of days were a little rough. She kept giving us the "wth"(what the hell) face, every time we would put the spoon in her mouth. She never had a screaming episode, so all in all rice cereal was and still is a success! She will continue on demand breastfeeding and rice cereal in the a.m. and p.m. until January when we will start to introduce her to veggies! I am almost positive I will be making her baby food. We will start with the green veggies (peas and green beans), then we will move on to the orange veggies (carrots, sweet potatoes, and squash). Once she has been introduced to all her stage 1 veggies, she will start fruits! Our doctor recommends we introduce one food at a time in the morning (so we can watch for any reaction) for 7 days. With introducing all the veggies and fruit should take us well in to month 8. When everything is introduced she will get: rice cereal and fruit for breakfast, veggie and fruit for lunch, rice cereal and veggie for dinner, along with on demand breastfeeding.

Milestones: She has started to sit up by herself, she pass toys from one hand to the next, she looks for an object she drops, she is talking, whispering, laughing, and screaming up a storm, She loves to stand up, she will sit up from a laying down position all by herself, when she holds your hands., She is doing baby pushes (she lifts her body up with her hands), she turns the pages of her story books when she is read to, she loves to reach for objects that are out of reach.
