five months

  • you weigh 14.5 lbs.
  • you are around 25.5 inches long.
  • you are in a size 1 diaper, and as soon as we finish the box we're in, we're moving to a 2.
  • you wear 3-6 month in clothes, and size 1 shoe.
  • you laughed out loud for the first time on feb. 7th.
  • you have started reaching out for things, and for us to pick you up.
  • you want your bath every night at 7:30 like clockwork.
  • you have discovered your voice.  you love to make a squealing/screeching sound.  to me, it sounds like a dinosaur.
  • you had your first cereal bottle 02/09 and your first cereal with a spoon on 02/11. you made me laugh so hard but you did really good with it. you kept wanting more!
  • you have decided that you don't like to sleep through the night anymore.  i get up several times to put your paci back in your mouth and pat your bottom.
  • you love to cuddle with a blanket around your face to go to sleep. especially at nap time. i usually give you your little security blanket.
  • you have really started enjoying playing in your exersaucer. i can put you in there while i cook supper and you are happy as can be!
  • you survived mommy leaving you for a couple of days!  it was WAY harder on me than it was on you!
  • you've started really rolling over good.  you won't stay on your back anymore!
  • you LOVE sydney.  you reach out to grab her, and when she gets in your face you give her a huge smile. 
  • you are doing much better riding in the car.  i can't say that i blame you too much.  i wouldn't want to be strapped down either.  =(
  • you sat in a highchair for the first time at gammy's house while we were out of town.  i think you tolerated it for a minute or 2.
  • your favorite show is ni hao kai-lan.  maybe that's because that is one of the only shows that i will let you watch.  =)  you love the colors.
  • you are starting to throw little temper tantrums.  i wonder where you get that from??
  • you were sleeping good in your crib until you got sick with a cold, so we put you back in our room.  now we're having trouble with our baby monitors, so you're still in our room.  =(

Love that quote you posted at the end! Austin is growing but she is still small to me! My girls got so big so fast! I think they were only in their infant carriers about three months each! That's amazing too that she's still in a size 1 diaper! Wow!

Love all the pics as usual! Such a sweet girl!
