You are 5 months old today! Time is flying by and I am trying to relish every minute of it. You are such a joy and bring so much happiness to our lives. You are very curious and observant. You are surely trying to figure out what the big world is all about! The only time you like to lay on your back these days is to play under your activity mat, otherwise you want to sit (with assistance) and see all that you can. You are such a happy baby and love to smile! The only time you get upset is when you are tired or hungry. Speaking of tired, you are a wonderful sleeper. You go to sleep around 9 each night and sleep until 7 or 8 in the morning. Your daddy said you take 2 naps during the day and sometimes 1 in the evening after I am home. Your naps are not very long, we like to call them cat naps, but they seem to satisfy you. You are still taking your bottles during the day with rice cereal and nursing when I am home. Your daddy and I tried to feed you rice cereal with a spoon the other day but you were not quite sure what to do. We will try again soon. You definitely are not missing any meals. You are growing so much every day it seems. We just started putting size 2 diapers on you and you are wearing mostly 3 month clothes. There are a few outfits that are 3-6 months that fit you and just a couple of 6 month onesies that you can wear. I ordered some super cute outfits in size 6 months for you, and I am hoping you will fit in them soon! You are still loving your days you spend with your daddy. You even rolled over from your tummy to your back for him the other day. When he has to work, your Nonna (your daddy's mommy) comes over and spends the day with you. A few days a week in the evenings when I get home from work we go to the park for walks, and you always enjoy it. Being outside is one of your favorite places to be! You still love to chew on your fingers and now your toes! Your hand eye coordination is very good now and you are always picking things up and putting them into your mouth! You have lots to say, and you seem to make a new sound almost every day. Charley and Annabelle are becoming some of your favorite entertainment. You love to watch them and they always seem to make you laugh out loud. Your personality is absolutely precious! I love everything about you! I thank God every day for choosing me to be your mommy!
All my love sweet girl,
Things she is loving: being outside, chewing on her fingers and toes,
being tickled by her daddy, "talking," sitting up (with assistance), mornings
Things she is not a fan of: being awake past 9PM,
laying on her back without entertainment, eating with a spoon
