Charlotte’s 5 Months Old!!

Charlotte is 5 months old! Oh my goodness, this little pumpkin is growing up so fast, I kinda wish she would just slow down, or at least time would slow down. This past month so much has happened. Charlotte started trying baby food, so far she has tried carrots, green beans, sweet potatoes, peas apples and bananas. The only thing she has not liked was peas, bananas and apples. Peas doesn’t surprise me but the fruit did, I guess she will just be my veggie girl. She also started scooting backwards and she scoots in circles, here before too long I just know she’ll be crawling. She is also sitting up for long periods of time unassisted, she loves to be sitting up or laying on tummy or side. Whenever she lays on her back she does a crunch to see what’s going on. She loves dogs, especially her doggies she pets them and it’s the sweetest thing in the world. Charlotte also loves when you hold her hand. She holds my hand to fall asleep at nighttime. Here before too long we’re going to transition her out of our bed and into her own and I’m just not ready yet, I wish I could cuddle her at night for forever. Anyways she still loves her Sophie, also she loves this infantino rattle that she has right now, and of course some car keys. She doesn’t like her pacifier at all, and uses it very rarely when she’s extremely tired, she also doesn’t suck her thumb anymore. I can’t wait to see what next month brings, we just love this sweet girl so much.

Charlotte’s 4 Months Old!!!

This little babe is 4 whole months old! Oh my goodness does time fly. This past month we went to Laguna Beach and loved every minute of it. Getting out of this Las Vegas heat for 4 days was amazing! Charlotte also went to her first MLB game the Dodgers vs Padres, at Dodger stadium. She did so well, stayed awake for most of the game, took a little nap and then woke up. One thing we have learned about Charlotte is that she hates to ride in the dark in the car. We’re not sure if she’s scared of the dark or not. She is growing so fast though, gaining about a pound or half a pound a week. All from mama’s milk which makes me very very happy. We go to the doctors next week and we’ll ask him his opinion on baby food and getting her ears pierced. I know most people say to wait till 6 months, but every time she see’s us eating she always trying to grab at our food and eat it too! We’ll see what the doctor says though. Also this past month Charlie has let us know that unless she’s going to sleep she doesn’t want to be on her back, she wants to be sitting up in her bumbo or on her tummy looking around. She can almost sit up on her own without toppling over. She also has learned to grab her toes, and it’s about the cutest thing ever. The first time we heard her laugh was at out dogs playing, now we try to get them to play on the daily to get her laugh. She just loves her doggies so much, she’s starting to try to pet them. It’s adorable. Charlie loves to read and chew on her touchy feely books from Usborne. Highly recumbent them!!

I just can’t wait to see what this next month brings. We love this little girl so much!

Charlotte’s Three Months Old!!

Oh man!!! I cannot believe this gorgeous little girl is three months old!! She is such a little spitfire. She’s starting to talk so much more, she voices her opinion on just about everything. She’s starting to notice more of her surroundings around her, including things like our cell phone and the tv. She still loves her fans though. Charlotte loves when we read her books, she is always so tranced by the photos on the pages. Eric reads to her everyday most of the time before bed. She has started to roll from her back to her tummy, even though she hates tummy time. Charlie is obsessed with grabbing stuff and clinging on to it, especially hair! Her hand/eye coordination is really well, if she wants something she will grab it. She doesn’t really like her pacifier anymore unless she is falling asleep, she will use her fingers during the day to self soothe. Most nights she sleeps from 9pm to 4:30-5am. then will nurse and go back to sleep until 8 or 9am and then will nurse again and sometimes sleep until noon. She loves to smile at everyone. She’s trying to learn how to laugh, but hasn’t gotten her giggle down just yet. She is ticklish on her feet and on her ribs, it’s funny to watch her squirm. She is starting to hate photos, thanks to me. Hence the no smiling in any of her photos above.

This month she will be taking another road trip to Laguna Beach, California for Labor Day, and she will be going to her first MLB game the Dodgers vs Padres. She will also be getting her ears pierced and hopefully with cooler weather soon will get to start playing outside more. We cannot wait for cooler weather and picnics at the park. Bring on all her first holidays, fall and winter. We’re over summer and being trapped inside.

We love Charlie so much, and love watching her grow. Everyday she is learning new things and we love teaching her along the way.

Charlotte’s Two Month’s Old!!

Charlotte is a whopping 8 weeks old!!! Where has the time gone!! She’s totally a different baby now. Charlotte’s starting to giggle, and can hold her head up about 80% of the time. She still really hates tummy time but we’re working on upping her on the minutes per day. Her doctor is so impressed with how well she is growing and how strong her neck is. Which as a parent it’s all about the little triumphs and wins. She’s such a happy little girl. Charlotte is sleeping through the night since about week 5!!! I think it’s all thanks to our tight schedule and our Dock-A-Tot. I will be doing a review about this product next weekish. Keep an eye out for it!
