Traveling with a 5, 6 and 7 month old

7 and a half monthsWe just returned from our world-wind 6 week trip to Europe and I can’t believe how long it’s been and how much has changed since I last posted here!  When we left, Amelia was still in the five month old “category” and now (on the 18th), she’ll be 8 months old!  Here’s a breakdown of what’s new…

Amelia is now sleeping and napping in her crib (hallelujah)!

She has EIGHT teeth (she’s only bitten me a few times when she was just learning how to use them… OUCH)!

She eats 3 solid food meals per day (mostly from Plum Organics).

She sits up on her own and has just begun to think about crawling.  She’s got perfect form, she just hasn’t put it in motion yet 😉

There’s a lot to tell about travelling with her.  I’ll have to break it down into mini posts, but the general idea is that the plane ride wasn’t nearly as difficult as I thought it would be… but the car rides were tough!  She DOES NOT LIKE HER CAR SEAT!  Anyway, like I said, I’ll post more in a bit.  We just graduated to somewhat normal nap times, so I actually can predict when I have time to myself.

Thanks for reading!

5 Months Old

I’m a little late posting this (Amelia turned 5 months old on the 18th). She woke up on her birthday with her first tooth! Which explains why I haven’t had time to write… She’s been a bit (a lot) more fussy that usual. In fact, just more than a week later, she already has two teeth and I think is working on her third!
She also rolled over (from back to front) two times on her birthday but hasn’t done it again since.
We have a pediatrician appt this Thursday for her last round of shots before we leave for Italy on the 10th. Oh, and we fed her her first solid food yesterday for the first time… Avocado. She ate a little. Didn’t seem all that excited about it. Maybe she will like bananas better.

I weighed her yesterday and she’s almost 14 lbs! She is not even close to sleeping through the night (although breastfeed babies aren’t supposed to, I’m told). She wakes me up to nurse about every 1 1/2 to 2 hours. Ugg. I’m hoping that after we are feeding her more solids, that she will sleep longer.

Here are some photos of her recent adventures…
