This little cutie turned 5 months old on the 16th.
She can be a bit demanding and thus makes my posts on this blog rather sparse, but we simply can't get enough of her! A few highlights:
She is SO proud of this trick she does with Sam.
She's finally big enough for her activity saucer she got for Christmas and she LOVES it. It's her favorite place to be during her waking hours, other than in our arms! She loves playing with the toys and spinning around.
I sometimes wish I had a grown-up version of her little baby dresses.
I really can't get enough!
She loves chewing her feet more than any baby we've ever had.
She has such expressive, big, blue eyes! Just last night we decided they are rather like Frodo Baggins'.
And still the most kissable, squishy cheeks.
-she is SO excited to be eating solids and gobbles them up. So far she has eaten sweet potatoes, carrots, green beans, avocado, baby oatmeal with applesauce, sweet potato puffs, and a few other foods here and there and she willingly eats it all.
-after being SO close to consistently sleeping through the night, she hit a 4-month sleep regression and started waking up every 3 hours to eat again. It was a rough, exhausting month, but just this week she has started doing better and only waking up once most nights.
-she loves being startled and will crack a huge smile or laugh after she jumps like she's been scared out of her skin.
-she has a DEFINITE favorite song. It is insane to see how she can be screaming and then quiets instantly as soon as she hears the song, "Reaching Out." She has probably listened to it hundreds of times, as it puts her to sleep almost immediately.
-she is in the 90th percentile for her height, so still on the tall side. She's somewhere around the 69th percentile for her weight.
-she loves giving us kisses.
-we are still completely and utterly smitten with her!!!
