~ Months 4, 5 and 6

It's been forever since I posted Ivy's monthly pictures! Here are months 4, 5 and 6. Even though I never posted anything here, I was still taking her photos and writing down things as she accomplished them. I look back and it's crazy how much time has passed, but at the same time it feels just like yesterday that she was a Newborn!

Dear Ivy,

Your personality really blossomed during this time! You came out of your shell and showed us what sweet and a happy baby you were, and still are at 9 months old right now.

4 months:

You were sleeping amazingly at this point, from approximately 9 to about 5 in the morning. Oh how I miss those nights!

Wearing 3 and 6 months clothes.

You liked to nap, during the day, in someones arms and hated the bassinet and your crib.

Still disliked car seat, but you were getting better. It was hit or miss and you cried about half the time.

Tummy time you still hated and would scream.

You hands were in your mouth all the time!

You would play with your paci, while it was in your mouth, but couldn't take it out and put back in yourself.

At the end of 3 months you starting reaching for objects.

You loved to be sung too and would smile. Songs that I would sign to you were, Old Mcdonald and This old Man.

5 Months

You had your first Thanksgiving, with your dad, at your Uncle Troy and Aunts Melissa's. I spent the day at home as I had pneumonia. :(

The 4 month wakeful period hit and you were up every 2 hours at night. You also went on a bassinet strike and the only way I could get you to go to sleep at night, was if it was in bed with us.

You started being able to pick up items and they instantly went in your mouth!

You were wearing mostly 6 month clothes, the occasional 3 month item would still fit.

Still only napping in the arms of your dad and you also decided that you didn't like your swing anymore.

You were better with the carseat and as long as the car was moving you didn't cry.

Tummy time was getting a bit better. You would look around for a couple of minutes, but then you would start to cry and face plant the floor. You rolled over from front to back for first time.

The cats enthrall you and you love to stare at them!

Your feet are a sorce of entertainment, when you lay on your back. Things you also loved were the jumperoo and the "I found love" video from Yo Gabba Gabba.

You do not like to lay on your back or lean back in someone's arms. You struggle and try to sit upright.

6 months

You learned to sit upright at the beginning of 5 months but it took you the rest of the month to become a pro. You were much happier once you could sit by yourself.

First bath in the big bath tub! No more Puj tub.

Rolling over more when doing tummy time. As soon as you were placed on your tummy, you would roll over.

Sleeping wise you were better. You were always easy to put down and but you were still waking up at 2:00 and 4:00 to nurse.

Look how much we have grown! Prior Monthly Photos

Ivy is one cutie-patootie! I can't believe she is 9 months old already! I loved reading your monthly updates because Colson is just about to hit these months! I can't wait for him to reach these milestones!
