Baby 5-Month Update

It’s been so long since we’ve made a post about Melanie! So I figured I would for Father’s day. She is doing great! She rolled over a couple times at the end of April (front to back), but hadn’t again until June 3rd or so (and then it was back to front only!). Today I heard that she rolled over front to back too. She rolls over onto her stomach during the middle of the night and starts getting upset, like she’s annoyed. So hopefully she’ll learn to flip back over. She’s becoming very active, scooting around (rotating) to find her toys. She does a pretty good pushup, and pushes her butt up too. She loves to stand up (we hold her) and to sit up (does a pretty good job unsupported, but falls forward or backwards eventually). Most of the time she sleeps through the night (but gets up around 5 or 5:30 to eat). She eats about 5 times a day, 6 to 8 ounces each time. She’s also tried pears, applesauce, and bananas. Sometimes she eats a pretty good portion of the solid food, but I don’t offer them regularly. She doesn’t have¬†any teeth yet, but she is drooling and putting things in her mouth! Here’s some recent pics:
