5 Months Old

When I was pregnant people always used to tell me to enjoy every single second once the baby came because they grow up so fast. Apart of me brushed them off thinking surely it can't go that fast when it feels like i've been pregnant 5 years!!!! But it really is true. Once you hold our precious little baby in your arms time seems to speed up and runs away until one day your sat looking at your 5 month old and you can't believe where the time has gone. Well that's how I feel anyway.

So today Paige is 5 months old. She has come such a long way in the last few weeks. The biggest thing is that she has starting having some solids. My baby is truly growing up :( another big step for Paige is she can now sit up by herself. This sort of happened out of the blue. If you read my previous post HERE you will remember that Paige hated sitting up and preferred to stand. She still loves to stand but also doesn't mind sitting up which I have to say makes my life a little easier.

Another thing that has happened in the last month is Paige has started laughing. You can watch a video HERE. The first few times I heard her laugh I cried. I just couldn't believe that such a sweet noise was coming out of the tiny little baby I gave birth to. I still love her laugh and I don't think I will EVER get tired of it.

This past month sleep has been a big issue, she just hasn't been very good at sleeping. Some nights she wakes once, some she is up every couple of hours. The worst was every half an hour! Also a new wake up time of 5am is hated by me. But for the last couple of nights we have let her have an extra nap around 6pm and then put her to bed around 8:15pm. This has then resulted in a 6:15am wake up with a feed around 3am. 

I have no idea what to do when the clocks go back... Help!! I do not want to be waking up at 5am again :(

Thanks for reading,

Nicola xx
