At five months old, Sydney has grown and changed so much! She is a completely different baby than she was just a couple weeks ago! She has become quite proficient at rolling, and she seems eager to move more. While lying on her tummy, she will now lift her butt high in the air and wiggle her legs, trying to move forward. She also loves to put her feet in her mouth. She is able to get all five toes of one foot in there! And, she is beginning to experiment with speech… making all sorts of interesting sounds and squeals when she gets excited or feels like communicating. And, the most exciting news is that she recently had her first taste of actual food (rice cereal) on a spoon, and she loves it! Here are some photos:
Sydney is five months old today. A few days ago we experimented with solid foods and this afternoon she really took a liking to them … and the spoon on which they were delivered.
Devon fed her a combination of rice cereal and milk. See the photos below. Soon we’ll start her on vegetables and then fruits.
