Selena: 5 months

No close-up for now. Selena was not in a picture-taking mood :P

Size: 14 pounds, 14 ounces (60th percentile) and 23.5 inches long. Not quite as big as I thought… she's just fluffy :D

New developments: Grabbing, holding, pulling, and putting everything in her mouth. Drooling like crazy… the pediatrician said her first tooth may not be far off. Also, she has taken notice of Cat.

Sleep: Pretty good sleep this month, except for these past couple of days when her nose has been a little stuffy so she wakes up struggling to breathe. I've had to get up to pump in the middle of the night a few times because she's sleeping for longer stretches and not eating as much at night. Last night she slept from 2 am until 8am solid! I woke up with milk spilling all over the place, hahaha (sorry, that's gross).

Movement: She's rolling from side to side very easily, but not flipping completely over yet. She HAS flipped a couple of times, but it's been a fluke, she's not super conscious of doing it yet. Head and neck support is awesome and she can sit on her own for a few seconds, but she's not quite ready yet.

Likes: Making loud screeching noises. Splashing in the water like she's swimming for her life! Sitting in my wrap always. Playing in her new (Caleb's old) toy chair activity thing… not sure what it's called. Touching Caleb and giving him big wet kisses.

Dislikes: Still doesn't like anyone else but me holding her. She's my baby buddy, permanently attached to my hip! Doesn't like to be held tight. Even in my wrap, she now likes her arms to be free.

My favorite moments: Watching her give Caleb kisses. Making pigtails in her hair :) :) :)
