the lucy project—month 5

lucy at 5 months old:

  • likes to try to sit up on her own (even though she's not quite ready yet)
  • enjoys standing (while someone holds her hands, of course)
  • still HATES tummy time
  • occasionally likes being tossed in the air
  • likes being sung to
  • still thinks her brother is the best toy ever
  • has had a few good nights in her very own bed (though she still prefers the company of her parents when sleeping)
  • likes to chew, mostly on burp cloths and sleeves (despite the fact that she got a few cool chewing toys for christmas). still no teeth to speak of, but we're anticipating one any time now.
  • coos, gurgles, and babbles with the best of them (accompanied by plenty of drool and spit bubbles)
  • likes to twist and reach for things over her shoulder while getting her diaper changed (not sure what this is about, but i remember sam doing the exact same thing. perhaps she thinks we like a challenge. we don't. particularly when poop is involved.)
  • very much enjoys reaching and grabbing (no dangly earrings for me for a while)
  • is fascinated by patterns and pictures (she's always grabbing at prints or pictures in books)
  • enjoys baby einstein videos (which sam still likes, so that's kind of awesome)
  • takes the best naps when she's in a carrier (*sigh*)
  • likes to play while sitting in my lap (which is why there's always a mound of laundry waiting to be done and floors waiting to be swept)

i'm sure there's more, but i'm trying my best to spend time soaking her in rather than making lists of her accomplishments. before i know it, she won't have time for me anymore!
