Sloane Marie | Five Months

What's new?
Started wearing cloth diapers. So far so good.
Really started enjoying her different toys.
Moved across the country with mommy and daddy.
Visited the Minnesota Zoo, twice.
Swam in Grandpa and Grandma Chambers new pool.
Met my new cousin!
Traveled to Madison for a family wedding.
Am super close to rolling over from back to tummy.
First trip to Minnesota State Fair

I don't want to forget the way her little arms flail around unintentionally. How when she looks in the mirror at herself she always smiles. Her constant happy chatter. The way she can always spot me across the room. How much she looks like her daddy. The way she throws her head back when she is really upset. How she lets us know when she does not like something. The way she jumps a little at a loud sound.

Weight: Not sure and my scales are currently unavailable, ha. At Birth: 5 pounds 6 ounces

Height:  Will get an official check next month. At Birth: 18.5 inches

Hair: Light Brown

Eyes: Still holding blue!

Clothes: She really should be wearing 3-6, but since we have been moving they were packed. Soon.

Diapers: Still in size 2. As of this week, she is wearing cloth diapers full time!

Nicknames: Homegirl, Princess, Princess Warrior, Beautiful, Sloane Baby

Likes:
-Sucking on mom or dad's fingers
-Pooping in her carseat (seriously, it has magical powers)
-Looking at herself in the mirror
-Being around people
-Being swaddled for sleeping
-Feeling daddy's beard

Dislikes:
-Having the sun in her eyes
-Waking up from a nap
-Being left alone for too long
-Sudden loud noises

Eat: Eating is still going great! She eats every 3 or 3.5 hours. She is definitely starting to notice our food when we eat so we are starting to think about what we will be doing for starting solids. Geez that happened fast. We decided to wait until at least six months to start solids, but the preparations have begun.

Sleep: This last month has been a little rough in the sleep category. Since we have been in transition, Sloane has been having a harder time sleeping. It comes in waves and she will sleep great a few nights and then not so great after that. It is a work in progress and now that we are in our house hopefully it will get better again. She is still sleeping with her swaddle in her bassinet in our room. She is about to grow out of her bassinet so we will probably be transitioning out of that in the next month or two. As soon as we actually get the nursery set up...

Schedule
6/7am She normally wake up sometime between 6 and 7 and she eats.
8 am She goes down for her first nap of the day. She usually sleep pretty well at this time of day.
10 am Wakes up from her nap and eats.
10:30 am Play time. I try to find things to keep her occupied so that we can length her awake and happy time.
11:30 am Back down for a nap.
1:30 pm Wake up and time to eat.
2:00 pm Play time again. I usually run errands during this time if I need to do something.
3:00 pm Nap time
4:30 pm Wake and eat.
5:00 pm Playtime.
6:00/6:30 pm Cat nap. Sometimes she needs this sometimes she doesn't. It depends on how well she sleeps throughout the day.
7:30 pm Final feeding of the day.
8:00 pm Pajamas and bedtime. Most nights she sleeps through till morning, but sometimes she wakes around 4am for a quick feeding and goes right back to sleep.
