This post is old!

( I typed this a few weeks ago and never posted). Rose is 5 months now, and absolutely darling. Month 4 was filled with a fast-growing baby. She gained 2 pounds between her 4-month check-up and her 5-month dr appointment. What? She jumped from 11 to 13 pounds. She is soo smart (we like to think so ;)). She can make a taco with her tongue if we do it too--we have yet to catch it on tape. So cuuuuute. She rolls to the right (from back to tummy) and rarely stays on her back. You can tell she really wants to be moving.

Praise Heaven

Rose slept 8 hours straight last night.

If I had known she was going to do that, I would have gone to bed earlier. She has been waking every 2 or 3 hours to eat or just to cry. She has also been doing slightly better today and yesterday with naps--I mean sleeping 30 mins or even 1 hour instead of 10 minutes and then screaming like nobody's business for 20 while being held by me.

Hopefully I don't jinx this, but she seems to be feeling better. She has had either a cold or stomach issues back-to-back for 6 or 7 weeks and I am TIRED. I loved her still, but it was trying. So far so good tonight. I put her in bed and she woke up (!) but went back to sleep on her own. I have not been able to put her in bed awake since 2 months.

I kiss this face a million times a day.
