You are five months old today! I cannot mentally grasp how quickly time has escaped me.
You seem to change everyday, becoming more active and aware of the big world that surrounds you.
At this stage you are wearing 3-6 month onesies and 6-9 month pants. We think you may be a tall one. You are still in size two diapers. I still put you in cloth diapers every now and then, but I don’t particularly like cleaning up the big poopy mess off of me, you, and the diaper.
In the last month, you started on solid foods once a day. You are also getting better at sitting on your own. You sit in the tripod position by yourself for a few seconds at a time. I think you’ll be sitting up with no problems by the first of the year.
So up to this point, you have mastered rolling over (more about this in a second), you are grasping and holding on to things like a crab, you’re beginning to do the pincher grab, you giggle and babble, you track like a huntress, you push up on your knees like you want to crawl, you blow bubbles and trill, you grab the spoon from my hand and try to feed yourself, you sleep an average of 10 hours a night, and you don’t like to have mommy leave your sight :).
About you rolling over, daddy was watching you one morning while letting me sleep in, he laid you on the activity mat in the living room and walked into the kitchen. When he came back, you were gone. Scared him to death, but you were nested cozily under the coffee table you roly poly you.
I haven’t measured you lately, but I bet you are close to 15lbs. and between 26-27 inches long.
You have such sweetness about you. You smile at all who greet you. You are such a joy to be around.

You are a gem, my sweet girl. Keep growing in beauty and in grace. May the Lord bless you and smile upon you. We are so proud of you!
