|Let's load her up!|
|Connor and Addison with their HBA family|
Addison also turned 5 months old. She is now rolling over from both tummy to back and back to tummy. She can also sit up all on her own! Connor didn't do this until he was 6 or 7 months old so she is very early on this. She is finally in her own room so we could start working on her (bad) sleep habits. She was getting to where she would wake up and want me every hour. So we turned to our trusty sleep solution which is basically the cry it out method. The first night was rough. She cried for 55 minutes before she fell asleep. But then she didn't wake up again until 4 am where we let her cry again, this time for only 20 min, and then she slept until 7 am. Every night got better and now she will only cry for 1 min if at all and sleeps for almost 12 hours. Her bedtime routine consists of a bath and then a bottle and she is usually out by 7 pm. She watches us very intently while we eat so we thought it was also a good time to start her on solids. Her first taste of rice cereal was this past Monday. She didn't hate it....but I wouldn't say she liked it either! Connor was so excited about eating he scarfed up every bite and always seemed excited to eat. Addie is still a dainty little eater and I can tell she isn't going to be anything like Connor in those regards. She is also teething. EVERYTHING goes into this girls mouth. She also loves loves loves her jumper. She gets so excited when she sees it and loves playing with every single toy on it. Connor is very fond of his sister now. The week he was home with us and she was in daycare, he would ask about her all day long. "Where is Addie?" "Let's go get Addie." Super cute. As soon as we get home from picking them both up he wants to hold her. He also wants to help with everything, from feeding her to bathing her...even putting her to bed. It's so sweet.
