5 Months :) - August 6

This is just a little late...

Baby Girl,

My how I adore you - this I am sure will never change.

We have finally gotten your reflux under control and with that, we have got you on a much better sleeping pattern. Mommy is very happy about this! You are much more pleasant as well. You know when it is bed time and let me know you are ready! You have the cutest little voice and I truly enjoy hearing your 'talk' through out the day!

You are enjoying solid foods and I am enjoying giving them to you.

You are such a good baby girl. We went in for your well check-up and shots about a week before you turned 5 months old. You held everybody's attention with your smile and talking. You weighed in at 15lb 4oz and were 25 1/2 inches long. The doctor was incredibly impressed with your development (just like me!). I have thought for quite some time that you were ahead of the game and doctor comfirmed it. She said you are nearly two months ahead. You were sure to show off how strong you are by standing up, just about sitting by yourself, reaching for things, transfering something from one hand to another. And after all the good...came the bad. Your shots. You only had to get two and an oral one. You got the oral one first and then it was time for your chunky little thigh to get poked. I cringed, but it was over in a flash. You didn't cry at all, just let out a little whine when it was all over to let us know that you didn't really like it.

You absolutely adore your daddy. It doesn't matter what you are doing, if your daddy comes in the room, you are instantly smiling and want his attention. It is by far the cutest thing. I also love when he is holding you and you have to take a break from what you are doing every thirty seconds to look up at him and smile. That right there is something that warms and melts my heart.

Your brother and sister dote on you left and right. You definitely get frustrated when you can't keep up with them and love every bit of attention they shower you with. I have a feeling it won't be long before you are crawling around to keep up!

I have to admit that there have been a few cranky days where I have questioned my parenting skills and have really gotten frustrated. Those days I have to thank your daddy for helping me keep it together and reassuring me that I am doing a good job. I always want to do right by you little one. I love you so very much and I want you to feel the love I have for you on a daily basis! You are my sweet little angel and I will always and forever love you and be there for you.

Love always,
