Guess what guys? Naja is almost 5 months old. She actually rolled over a couple of weeks ago (not like the time I thought she rolled over at 6 weeks old). I mean I think my kid is smart - but rolling over at 6 weeks is a bit
unrealistic aggressive. This time, she really did it, and I'm so happy I was there to watch her do it and cheer for her like her biggest fan! Has she rolled over since then? No, lol.
Naja is not a smiley baby. She gives people faces like the one below often. It's a discerning look, like she's thinking: Who are you? Why are you in my face? I don't know you, so why are you acting like you know me? Whatever faces you're making aren't making me smile. I can get her to crack a few smiles when I give her lots of kisses on her cheeks and her belly - she loves it!
Her mouth is still juicy, and after her four month visit to the doctor, I found out she's not teething. I guess babies just love to taste everything at this stage, and let me tell you - Naja is no exception. She eats her fist, her bib, her shirt, her pants, my fingers, the ground: any and every thing! If it's within reach of her mouth - she's tasting it! I am looking forward to introducing solids at six months, and trying out baby led weaning, no pureed foods for this little baby! I'll post more on that later.
As for me, life as a mom is the same, but with more responsibility, less sleep at times, and a lot more smiles. Seriously, when I get home from work, I have a smiling baby ready to eat! I typically focus on the smile, and less on the eating, but she quickly reminds me that she's happy to see me, but hungry too! Ok - there's my long overdue mommy update. I hope you have a great weekend!
