Guess Who's 5 Months Already!

Baby Girl is already 5 months! We just can't believe how fast times flies now that we're not pregnant! Baby Girl is 12 1/2lbs per Mama's grandma's scale last week! She's doing better with her sleeping, going about 6 hours at night. We are gradually getting back to our full nights sleep since starting her Prevacid for her silent reflux. The good news is that the Prevacid is working and she's doing so much better with eating!!! Baby Girl is not rolling over yet, per Mama. Master Chief did have her on her tummy on our bed and with the downward slope towards him, she rolled, and while he calls that the official first time Mama is waiting for her to do it on a flat surface!

Kermit and Miss Piggy would tell you that Baby Girl talks your ear off. She loves to babble, it's just so cute. She gets too interested in looking at the phone so she doesn't babble to grandparents very much yet! Baby Girl has a pretty consistant schedule of being awake for 1 1/2 hours before taking a nap for 1-2 hours. We haven't started her on cereal yet, Mama is not ready for her to grow up and wants to wait until 6 months. She's not been acting interested in foods yet so we figure she'll be just fine to wait 1 more month.

Mama has decided that Baby Girl has been one of the key pieces in healing her broken heart (Adopting Kermit being the other). To go full term and have a baby that looks and sounds like her big sister Angel Baby is something that words can not describe. Perhaps comforting, peaceful, exciting, and bittersweet covers a portion of what she feels.

Baby Girl is such a bright spot in our family. The kids can not pass her without kissing her, talking to her or tickling her. Baby Girl shows each of us that she loves us with her big smiles. Happy 5 month birthday Baby Girl! We sure do love you.

She's beautiful Jami! Hard to believe its already been 5 months! They grow up too fast...although I am looking forward to the day when Piper finally figures out how to roll back to her back from her tummy! She gets stuck and gets mad.

Oh just hold on to every day! Each little milestone they reach rolling over/eating...is another day they aren't so innocent. What a beautiful picture of her personality. She's the most darling little girl!!! Sure love her. Give her hugs from us. Can't wait to see her in person!
