Sahiti’s fifth month

Dear little Sahiti,

Armed with infant formula, we got braver with you. We would plan long day trips, hike moderately difficult and long trails and plan activities that kept us out of the house for long hours. The onset of Spring and your transition to infant formula made it seem like parenting was a walk in the park πŸ™‚

Ever since you learnt to completely support your neck, you preferred to be in the infant carrier in the forward facing position. You enjoyed the views and asked to be taken out for a walk. Your daily routine around this time included a walk to the nearby park and playing in the swing.

After learning to roll over from your back on to your stomach, this month it was time to learn to roll back on to your stomach again. I honestly don’t know when or how you learnt to do this. I went to the bathroom on day while you were on your tummy and by the time I came back, you were on your back again. From then on, you practiced this rolling over business literally every waking moment πŸ™‚ One thing that bothered me a little was that you only rolled over on your left and did not seem even remotely interested in trying from your right hand side.

You met your paternal grandparents for the first time this month. For the first few days, you did not appreciate the sudden increase in decibel levels at home. You often wondered who all these people were but nevertheless you enjoyed all of the extra attention you constantly seemed to get.

Β Major milestones achieved this month: You learned to roll over on to your stomach and back.

Firsts this month: Meeting paternal grandparents and celebrating Holi in style!

  1. She did indeed celebrate Holi in style, as I can see πŸ˜€

    Rolling on the left or the right does not matter a bit, and there is nothing to be concerned – as you might have figured very well by now πŸ™‚

    ‘parenting was a walk in the park’ – wow, that’s a first I have heard from a mom of a 5 month old. You almost meant it literally there, didn’t you? πŸ˜€

    Tight hug and much kisses to the little doll.
