Baby Update:

It's been way to long…almost a month. Baby girl will be 6 months Saturday. Part of me is loving the watching her in transition, the other part, just a small part, wants her to be content sleeping on my chest instead of trying to get her hands on everything. But I'm so thankful she is growing like she should be. I don't take it for granted at all. She's scheduled for her six month shots tomorrow, hopefully it'll go as well as 4-month shots did.

She started eating solid foods. Everything was fine until she realized she could push the food back out with her tongue, or just take it out with her hands. And then rub it everywhere…

She also moved to her crib. She had been co-sleeping, which I was initially against, but it made things so much easier. There are so many schools of thought on this. I don't really care, I had to do what was best for me and my baby, the new theme of my life.

She also having a bit of separation anxiety, we kind of both have it. She is aware when I'm in room or when I leave. And I like her to be in my sight at most times. To me this isn't a big deal, this seems normal. We go places and she socializes with other babies, so I'm not too nervous about her being a hermit.

Mommy Update:

I've started getting us involved in more mommy-baby activities. This has proven to be quite helpful, keeps us on a bit of a schedule, gives us something to look forward to day to day (and helps us meet other mommies and babies). I have to thank meetup.com and fb groups of local community activity. Social media can be so helpful sometimes.

I still am looking for personal outlets. I go to the gym I was taking her, but she wasn't doing too great in the gym, so I'm trying to get in the morning before my husband goes to work. This means I am at the gym before the sun fully rises…mommy is tired…but I've got goals.

My health goals are simple, get ready for the next baby. I don't need abs, just to lose the weight I gained this pregnancy. And some of the weight I was trying to lose before I got pregnant lol.

So there you have it we're trying to find a pattern. But we're making it, and that's what really matters. God bless!
