5 months!

Beau is 5 months old already! We have noticed since she was born that she spits up a lot. We thought that she was just a spitter, like Buddy was, but I got to thinking that it was just a little too much. Buddy is a bit lactose intolerant, so I thought Beau might be a bit too. So we switched her to Soy formula and her spit up has become A LOT less. Also we started her on some baby Zantac, which might be helping some too. The poor baby is having some digestive difficult while her system is getting us to this new formula.

She has rolled over from front to back and back to front, and has already started to make some efforts toward crawling. So it won't be long now before she is mobile! I am torn between what I want her to do. Some days I can't wait for her to crawl so she can go where she wants and do what she wants instead of me having to guess, but then other days I wish she would go back to a day when she would just sit still while I held her. I just try to savor every moment and live in that second, not looking forward to the future or wishing for the past. I know all of these baby days will be over too quickly and I'm trying to soak up every smile, every touch, every giggle and every snuggle. My baby won't be a baby for long!


  1. I cannot believe that she is 5 months old already! Time has moved so quickly- love that sweet little girl, glad she is doing better with less spit up!

  2. I love keeping up with your sweet baby girl on here! Maybe one of these days I'll get to meet her, and see those beautiful eyes in person!

    Definitely savor every moment... I can hardly remember my nephews being 5 months! They grow SO fast!

  3. It definitely flies by! I'm like you--sometimes I find myself wishing for the next phase, and other times I grieve the passing of "babyhood" so quickly. So I just pray for grace and wisdom to cherish this present moment. :)
