Ryleigh’s 5th month

WHAT RYLEIGH’S DAYS & NIGHTS ARE LIKE…

Sleeping: She goes to be around 9:30 each night, wake to nurse at 5, wakes to nurse at 7. After the 7 am nursing session she will sometimes go back to sleep but most often is up for the morning at this point. She usually takes a morning nap from 9:30-10:30/11 and the naps again around 1:30-3.

Eating: Ryleigh is still breastfeeding so well! She nurses about 6-8 times a day depending on how busy we are. She also eats fruit and veggie purée twice a day. She eats the Beech Nut organic foods. She also gets bits and pieces of my good sometimes too. She is very interested in food and will grab anything in reach! She makes this adorable noise when she wants mama milk now, it’s an “mmmmmMMMMMmmmm” sound, so cute!!

Diapers: Daytime- Flip diapers, Away from home and night time- disposables Pampers Swaddlers Size 2

Other Random Stuff: She rolls everywhere, she is sitting up for a few seconds unassisted. She loves to play with toys on a blanket on the floor. Her absolute favorite thing is her jumperoo though!!

Jennifer’s 21st Birthday

Today was my sister’s 21st Birthday, but she spent it in Heaven.

We celebrated Jennifer’s 21st Birthday by going to Cow Appreciation Day at Chick-Fil-A and then releasing balloons and having her favorite cake from Publix. Sophie asked a TON of questions including: “Why can’t we go play with Jenn Jenn in the clouds?”, “How is she going to get her cake?” (good answer Kiki with HPS, Heaven Postal Service.), “Can we use a ladder to get to heaven?” and “Why can’t Jenn Jenn come down just for her party?” It was such a hard day but being together and Sophie cracking us up with her antics all day made it more bearable. We love you Jennifer and we miss you more than you will ever know, I hope we did your birthday up right!

52 weeks of Ryleigh…Let’s make this month 4 of Ryleighs life!

Weekly updates are getting a little redundant now so let’s switch if up to monthly updates!

Ryleigh just had her 4 month check up yesterday and here are her stats:
Weight- 11lbs 8oz.
Length- 24 inches
Head Circumference- 41cm.

She’s rolling over both directions, giggling at us, squealing with delight and just an overall wonderful baby! She nurses like a champ. Her nightly routine is asleep at 9:30, wakes to nurse at 3, and wakes to nurse at 7. Ryleigh started solid foods this week too, she’s had mashed banana, mashed sweet potato and smashed avocado. She loves food!

I love sharing a birthday with my little girl! She’s smart, funny and so witty! She is a daddies girl but tells me I’m her favorite because she knows it makes me smile 🙂

WHAT RYLEIGH’S DAYS & NIGHTS ARE LIKE…

Sleeping: 9:30-7:30 straight thru, naps are almost nonexistent though 😦

Eating: Nursing sessions are down to 10-15 minutes most times so that makes it much easier! But we are STILL in a growth spurt so she’s nursing a TON!

Diapers: Daytime- Flip diapers, Away from home and night time- disposables Pampers Swaddlers Size 1

Places She Went: normal places like the grocery store and Vacation Bible School singing with the older kids

Other Random Stuff: She is rolling over front back to belly all the time now, as soon as I lay her on her playmat she rolls right over!

Vacation Bible School

My kids love attending VBS and I love the break in the summer time. They make crafts, learn songs, spend time with friends and most importantly learn about Jesus.

So do your kids attend VBS during the summer?
