Hello! I am Andrea and I am 31 years old. I am married to the love of my life and recently became a mommy to Ava Lynne. I blog about all things baby, my day to day as I navigate this thing called motherhood, anesthesia (I am a CRNA), crossfit, love, food, health and lots of little things in between!

The Sweetest Things

My little doll turned 5 months yesterday!

Her newest most favorite thing to do is work on her rolling. She rolls over onto her belly constantly. She used to hate being on her stomach but now she can tolerate it for a few minutes - then she fusses and get upset because she can’t roll back over on her own. I usually have to get up 1-3 times each night to roll her onto her back. 

She has officially found her feet and is constantly pulling them up towards her face and grabbing them with her hands. I love when he holds onto them and just stares at them in awe, like, ‘I didn’t know I had these??’.

She puts EVERYTHING in her mouth. My MIL and grandmother-in-law keep insisting that she is teething so I had to explain to them that this is normal for babys her age. As adult we have more nerve endings in our fingertips than anywhere else in our body - this is why we can close our eyes, feel something, and figure out what it is. For infants, they have not developed these nerve endings yet - their MOUTH has the highest number of nerve endings. This explains why when they are trying to learn about and experience the world around them they ‘feel things with their mouth’. When they want to know how something feels, if they can chew/eat something, what the texture or taste it, they use their mouth because they can’t use their fingers. She ISN’T teething….yet :)

She is still at 5 feedings per day: 7, 10:30, 1:00, 4:00, and 6:45-7:00. Her bedtime is usually around 7:30pm. She has 3 naps and 1 short cat nap in the evening. We haven’t started solids yet - I don’t really think it is necessary right now and also don’t think she is ready. I don’t really feel a need to rush either. We will revisit the idea of solids probably in a month or so. At her last doctors appt she was 15.6lbs and I think 26.5 inches - obviously growing just fine :)

Bring on month 5!

Planning out the 500 calorie days is the key

Where are you or where did you get Weight Watchers soup? Is it any good? Also what is in the red pack, I can’t read the name.

More importantly why would you only eat 500 calories in a day?
