Beautiful beautiful Lani...

** I started this post a few days ago (really today is the 17th!) so I'm just gonna post it to get it out and do another one too I think, can't seem to keep up with this these days, but things I want to get down! **

My girl is now 5 months (and a half nearly!) old... where did that time go.... thought it about time I did an update on her development and did a shoot....


She is rolling like a trooper (has been for a couple of months really). She hardly stays on her back these days unless she's particularly happy and then she is seen goo-ing and gaa-ing as in off in another land anyway... or eating her toes...


She has started getting up on her knees a little, and rocking back and forth. At this rate, she'll be crawling by Christmas, just over 6 months, my clever girl. (However in saying that, both the boys were crawling by 7 months I think)


I have given her the taste of solid food a few times. From today though, I think I'm going to make sure its every day, as he sleeping patterns at night have been shot to pieces lately.... she's reverting to worse than when she was born, waking every 3 hours like its daytime!! (as it is, I am updating this at 4am coz she's got up every TWO hours tonight... I'm so sleepy!!) Would just love a *bit* more sleep!! So obviously her tummy needs something more.... maybe I should try the bottle before bed again too. Yes, she's still breast-fed. However, who knows how long that will keep up if as it seems, she's not getting enough!! Hopefully the solids will help though, and I can continue to breastfeed for at least a few more months.

Well here's some piccies I took at 5 months old:

Oh isn't she just a cherub?

Jamie went through exactly the same pattern of night waking when he was ready for solids. A week of cereal every day and a big milk drink just before bed did the trick! Hope you get some more sleep in the coming weeks.

She must be the most beautiful baby I have ever seen Nat!(I better say, one of the most beautiful..whoops)
Just stunning!

She is so adorable Nat, and so much like your boys too. She's looks extra gorgous in that little dress ;)
