5 months and 2 days

This post was supposed to be done on Saturday, when she was actually 5 months old, but, with only 1 working laptop, I try not to abuse the privilege. Anyway, here are some pictures from Sat.

You are now 5 months old! I have no idea where time has gone, or who hit the fast forward button, but I wish they would stop hitting it. Just slow down for one second please. This past month, we started you on rice cereal for breakfast, and since it seems that you love it, we have also introduced it as part of lunch as well. Sometimes you nap, and sometimes you don't, but even when you are tired, you don't fuss. You love your exersauser, and you hate laying down. You want to be sitting up or standing all the time. You love to "walk" by holding on to some one's fingers and taking a couple steps, and you try to roll over, but your bottom arm keeps slowing you down. I say bottom arm because when you roll from back to belly it depends on which way you are rolling as to which arm you get stuck on. But keep it up and you will get it! You are also trying to crawl, and yes, backwards is a direction. You seem to love Little Einsteins and The Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. This past month you have celebrated your first Easter, and your my first Mother's Day. Everyday is Mother's day because you make me feel so lucky to be your mom. You still love bath time, and you are starting to snuggle with me more on your own. I don't know how much you weigh, we don't go back to the doctor's until next month, but you seem happy and healthy and that is what matters to me. We have an exciting first coming up this month, your first time in a pool, and I can't wait to document every single moment. We also have Pop-Pop's birthday. Next month you have Father's Day and your baptism, mixed in there is a doctor's appointment and Grandpa Hoole's birthday. I can't wait to continue watching you grow. And while everyone wants to pinch your cheeks, please don't mind while I sit here and just want to love on you. You have given me a new reason to live, and I can't imagine loving someone the way I love you. I love you Pumpkin!
