Baby Checklist. Month 5 Week 1
1. My partner and I are both so tired after bedtime, sometimes we barely even talk! This weekend, we’ll take one of baby’s naptimes to sit down together and have a real conversation to reconnect.
2. Baby can turn Natalie’s head from side to side and look up and down. I’m working on teaching Natalie to nod “yes” and “no!”
3. Baby and I love to listen to music and dance! I hold Natalie in my arms and turn on my favorite tunes, and we dance our cares away. Natalie also likes to lie on the ground and do some “dancing” of Natalie’s own!

4. I’m doing something simple special for me this week to help me feel pretty, like painting my nails or taking a long shower and doing my hair.
5. I finished babyproofing, and I’m ready for baby to crawl! I’ve got locks on cabinets, everything breakable is moved out of reach, and I’ve checked all the windows for strangulation hazards.
6. Whenever baby’s around, I say the name of everything we see to help Natalie learn new words. Sometimes I catch myself doing this when baby’s not around, too!
7. If it’s allergy season, I’ll watch baby for any signs of asthma or allergies like coughing and wheezing. If I notice any symptoms, I’ll talk to our doctor.

Baby Checklist. Month 6 Week 1
1. Baby can feed herself with a spoon! I’m not sure how much Natalie is actually eating, because Natalie makes a huge mess, but hey, Natalie is having a blast.
2. Baby has started teething. I don’t see any teeth yet, but Natalie is drooling and chewing on everything and seems a lot more irritable than usual. I know this could last a while, so I’m stocking up on teething toys, cold washcloths, and patience!
3. Baby understands me! Natalie recognizes her name and can sometimes follows simple commands like “yes” and “no.”

4. My doctor told me to give baby a daily supplement of vitamin D.
5. I’ve started a freezer meal exchange with a few friends, and it’s really simplifying my cooking! Each of us cooks a lot of one meal that can go in the freezer, and then we all swap.
6. Baby has a security toy. It’s really sweet to see Natalie carrying the “lovey” around everywhere we go!
7. I’m treating myself this week with some relaxing exercise like a yoga session or a long walk.

I swear it never ends with the stress of money. I'm a stay at home mother and my husband works full time. I've been looking for…
