5 Months Old

Emily you are 5 months old today.  I know I say it every month...time is flying.  You are growing so quickly and as much as I am loving watching you I am sad that it is all happening so fast!  So about this month:

  • You weigh 17 lbs and are 25 in long.
  • You are so involved and aware of what is going on around you.
  • You are VERY mobile.  You scoot, roll and army crawl all over the place.
  • You are already getting up on your hands and knees and rocking back and forth.
  • You like bananas in your little "food net", but you aren't so much interested in eating anything else, any other way.
  • You love to nurse.
  • You are SUCH a good and mellow baby.
  • We went to Disneyland this last month and you got to ride lots of rides.  Your favorite was "It's A Small World" and you hated "It's A Bugs Life".
  • Your new favorite toy is your jumper.
  • You like to be held.  You are a snuggle bug.
  • Mommy has nicknamed you Peanut.
  • You love your sisters and brother and happen to think that Ryan is hilarious!
  • When you actually do get upset and cry all we have to do is sing "If Your Happy and You Know It" and you calm right down.  It works everytime!
  • Your face lights ups when you see daddy.
  • You have this hilarious thing that you do with your tongue.  You suck on it and your top lip and I can't even begin to describe how cute it is.
  • You are teething and drooling like crazy.
  • You have developed this new "yell" when you are done with a toy or done with being on the floor and you want to be held.  It's pretty funny.
You are an absolute blessing to our family.  Daddy was just saying this morning that he cannot get over how perfect you are.  We could not have been blessed with a better baby.  You are the center of our world and we love you so very much!!
