Five Months

Wow, these months are just flying by!! Little girl, please stop growing up so fast.  While I love watching you learn new things (almost everyday!) I feel like it's all just happening so fast!! You finally started rolling over this past month but you don't do it very often.  You scream and scream when I set you on your tummy and instead of rolling over, you usually just give up and lay your head down. Silly girl.  On the other hand, you absolutely love standing up!! You will stand there as long as we'll let you!! It is so cute!! You are also mastering the skill of sitting.  If you use your hands for balance you can sit up for a couple minutes!! The first time you did it you were so proud of yourself!!

You are working on becoming a world-class traveler!! Two trips to Colorado within one month and you were a perfect little angel on the plane each time!!  You don't realize it yet, but girl, you have your grandparents wrapped around your little finger!!! Oh the joys of being the first grandchild, you can do no wrong!!!

A couple days after we got back from Colorado you found your voice.  You've been making sweet little cooing noises since you were about two months old but now you squeal, and yell, and shriek!! I love waking up on Saturday mornings and listening to you talking to yourself on the baby monitor.  I only get to hear this on the weekend because I usually have to wake you up at 7:00 on weekdays.  If we let you, you will sleep almost 12 hours at night!! Thank you for letting us sleep in till 8:00 on the weekends, I appreciate it more than you'll ever know!! :)

We are experimenting with different baby foods, you've currently had: avocados (dislike), bananas (love), applesauce (like), pears (like), and carrots (major dislike).  You also have 5-6 six oz. bottles a day. 

Sweet pea, you make mommy and daddy smile every single day.  I can't get enough of your smiles, little giggles, silly faces and cute squeaks!!  You have brought more joy to our lives than I ever imagined possible.

Love you little monkey!!!
