ruby {5 months}

Ruby is still wearing size 1 diapers, but we will probably move up to size 2's when we finish this box.  She wears mostly 3-6 month tops and 0-3 bottoms. The leggings are a bit short but they fit her waist. The 3-6 month are still big on her. She finally fit into a pair of newborn shoes that I have been wanting her to wear for a while.

She is a tiny little thing and we love her to pieces. I took her in for a weight check and she weighed in at 11 pounds 3 ounces. They keep giving me different suggestions on how to help her gain. But I am just going with nursing every 2-3 hours during the day and making sure she is happy. We tried supplementing with bottles, but she refused.

This month she has been showing off her abs and her core strength. She wants to sit up all of the time, and can do it with support. She loves to sit in her bumbo and sit on the floor with me holding her up. When laying down she is kicking her legs constantly and moves around on the blanket. She loves to play with her toys and if they aren't in her mouth, she will suck on her hands and fingers. While nursing I have to hold her hands back or she tries to suck on them too while eating.

This month there has been no normal sleep schedule at night. She wakes up anywhere from 1-3 times a night to eat. And for that reason, she is still in the bassinet in our room. She goes to bed at 9 and wakes up around 8 in the morning. We still don't have a normal nap schedule during the day, but I am hoping to get one going. I think it's time to transition to 2 longer naps during the day instead of lots of mini naps.
