5 MonthsPosted: April 15, 2011
DING DING DING In the pink corner is Kylee “Sweetpea” Hughes, weighing in at 14lbs 5oz with a height of 25inches! Her main method of attack, her kung fu grip. But the main thing you need to look out for is when that lip sticks out you’re about to get a fury of attitude!
This month was a big one! The biggest accomplishment being that Kylee is sitting up all on her own! Right when she turned four months she started trying to sit up and progressed so quickly that she had it mastered in two weeks. I was thoroughly impressed! So now she loves to just sit and play with all her toys.
She discovered her feet this month and that is kind of funny to me. At first it was just her holding on to her feet but when they started going in the mouth is when it became very interesting! People will make comments like “don’t you wish you could still do that?” Well, I tried and surprisingly enough I can! Of course, considering I have a HUGE foot phobia, my foot didn’t go IN my mouth, but it came up to it!
Sorry… ADD. Back to Kylee! One thing that Kylee started doing that is driving Kyle nuts is she likes scratching her nails on different surfaces. The couch drives him especially crazy. And one thing that drives her mamma nuts… SHE STARTED SUCKING HER THUMB!!!! We did a pacifier to avoid thumb sucking… a lot of good that did! And the pacifier breaking is in the mix, so more on that at a later date. We started her on food which is going great! She started out on rice cereal and that went over so well that we started on food already. She tried peas (hated those), sweet potatoes (not much better), bananas (likes those), and the newest introduction is apples (likes those even more). The odd thing is she still prefers the rice cereal over everything else. The stuff has absolutely no taste but she can’t get enough of it! She will be in her high chair starting to get fussy because I’m pretty sure she’s getting full, but she still wants more. Now that Kylee is on formula alone, I’m SO glad she took to baby food so quick! This way she goes a lot longer between bottles and I don’t feel like I have to work a ton just to pay for formula!
Wow… five months already. It scares me a little that I have already reserved my cake lady for her birthday (she’s so amazing that I have to book her this far out).
