It's hard to believe we're quickly approaching that half year mark with Tatum. Each kiddo keeps going faster and faster. And it stinks when it's your last kiddo because you most definitely want them to take their time. But time? It waits for no one... so here we are, five months in.
This last month was a big one! First Christmases were celebrated... even though Tatum slept through most of them. A couple of weeks ago she decided that instead of rolling belly to back like most kids, she'd just master the whole back to belly thing first. Which is cool. Until she couldn't get roll to her back again. No worries though, she figured the whole belly to back thing out just a couple of days ago. Once she combines the two? I have a feeling our lives are going to get a lot more interesting.
We still have a hard time getting an actual laugh out of our sweet tater tot. It definitely surprises all of us when one shows up. It makes her brothers laugh like crazy. What also makes them laugh? Tatum sitting at the dinner table with us in her bumbo! I think the fact that she's sitting up and able to look around thrills them. And she's pretty smitten with her brothers too. Always keeps her entertained.
We're still nursing really well. Tatum's starting to show a little interest in food – especially now that she's sitting with us at the table – but we'll probably hold off on closer to six months to start food. She seems to still be pretty content with mama's milk, so no rushing there. Also? I'm in no hurry to start changing solid food diapers, ha!
Sleeping is still going well. This past week has been a little different. Some restless nights and early mornings... but she's probably having a growth spurt (mentally, for sure!). It's also getting colder at night so I do wonder if maybe she's been a bit chilly at night. Fleece jammies and sleep sacks to the rescue!
She's a sweet, sweet baby. Keeping us all laughing and swooning with her special dimple and smiley eyes...
