Madelyn turned 5 months old this week. She is such a big girl now. She rolls over completely to her belly now and laughs alot. She is just a happy silly baby. I took this picture on 5/11/10 in her room. She seems to love Elmo.
Our typical day when I am not working consists of us getting up for the day around 7am and she is also eating solids now, so we do a fruit in the morning and a veggie at night, and bottles of course in between. We had pears, bananas, apples, and sweet potatoes so far. She is getting alot better at the feedings. She actually opened her mouth before I got the spoon to her tonight. It was very cute.
After she eats she spends her days playing with all her different contraptions we seem to have; excersaucer, jumperoo, swing, activity mat, chair, toys on blanket. Also she really loves watching her Baby Mozart, Baby Einstein DVD. I actually like hearing it too. It is very relaxing and a nice break from tv noise. She seems to be happy watching them, so I can take a shower or get something done for that 25 minutes. One dvd is usually about $15.00, so I went on ebay this week and got 3 Baby Einstein DVDs for about 9 bucks! I can't wait for it to come in the mail!
It was also my first mother's day as a mama this year. It was really nice. I mostly just enjoyed not going to work and being with our beautiful baby.
