5 Months!


16 pounds 1 3/4 ounces
26 3/4"

My goodness baby girl, you're growing!!!!

Notice the drool stains?? I haven't learned yet that bibs are the way to go. Instead, I change her shirt at least 8 times a day!

This past month has had many developments for my sweet love nugget.
- You have started on solids. Yes, we are early. But you always seem to be hungry. Always. You were eating every 2 hours still, and growing so fast the doctor told me to stop feeding you so much!! I told her to try telling you that!! You pretty much ate every 2 hours, including throughout the night. Mommy was exhausted and frankly, she doesn't make enough food for you! So, at about 6pm you get some rice cereal which you love. I'm excited to give you fruits and veggies but we're going to wait for that until you're 6 months old. For the last 2 nights, you have woken up twice a night instead of every 2-3 hours. Mommy is very happy about this!

- You can sit up by yourself for a few seconds. So proud of you!! You do eventually topple over, but I sense your sitting up days are coming fast and furious!

This was by your grampy... BAD grampy!!

- You are very particular about the toys you play with. You have favourites, and you have ones you don't like. And if your favourites aren't in front of you, watch out!!

- You hate being confined - in the bathtub, in the carseat... especially if you're in a reclined position. You like to be upright and you will try to get out of everything. So funny. Mommy and daddy even just bought you a new carseat (being shipped!) because you seem to hate your baby carseat. Mommy's not ready to get rid of it though!! It's so convenient!

- You looooooooooooooooooooove Bauer. You will stop whatever you're doing just to stare at him. You are so gentle with him too, giving him pets. He still doesn't like you too much and tries to get away from you, but it's so sweet how much you love him!!!!


- You love your daddy. It's the cutest thing in the world. You see that guy, and you smile. No matter what. You don't smile at mommy as much as you smile at daddy!!!!

- You love your toes. They must taste deeeelicious because they are always in your mouth!!! Hilarious!!!

You've had a few visits with Grammy and Grampy this month, especially after they got back from Hawaii and they brought over all your presents!! You are spoiled by them!


Grandma and Grandpa also came over for a day after daddy's birthday. You were pretty grumpy that day but I've since learned that you were going through quite a growth spurt and therefore you weren't in the mood for company. But you got to see them which was great!!

I can't wait to see what your 5th month brings, Aryn!!! Mommy and Daddy love you VERY much! Happy Valentine's Day, love nugget!!!
