5 Months

Holy smokes. 5 months, people. My baby is 5 months old. I cannot believe it. And I am totally late in posting this, as she was 5 months on the 9th and it's now the 15th. . . If I don't hurry up, I will just have to combine my 5 and 6 month posts!

So here are some new achievements the little lady has been amazing us with the past few weeks. We're pretty stinking impressed, lemme tell ya!

She's rollin' people! On a regular basis! Back to front and front to back. She's a strong one, ladies and gents.

She talks all the time now. Just blabbers on and on and has the biggest stories to tell. She even moves her tongue like she really is trying to say something. It's so cute.

Along those same lines, she rarely cries anymore. Instead of crying, she yells. It's super funny. She'll just yell and yell until we figure out what it is she needs and then she's good!

She's eating solids! And she loves em! She gulps down cereal and fruits like it's no big deal. We're not nursing anymore, either. Just bottles and now cereal in the morning and at night. She's such a big girl now. :)

Her fingers are ALWAYS in her mouth. Seriously, she LOVES chewin on her fingers. She rarely wants/needs a paci. Fingers will do!

She loves to grab her toes and is constantly trying to stick them in her mouth. She's a flexible one, that girl.

She's starting to become a momma's girl. (gulp) I am afraid that she is starting to prefer me, although she will still smile at strangers. Just in the last few days though, she has started watching me wherever I am and making sure she can always see me. I fear the "clingy stage" is right around the corner.

Her hair is growing back! Yay! Slowly, but surely. Here's the insane thing though- It's coming in Blonde. Yeah. I know. Go figure. Two dark haired people with a blondie. It's dark blonde though, so she's still more dark than she is light. And she kind of has a "skullet" going on right now. I really don't wanna give her a haircut yet because she doesn't have that much hair, but I am contemplating it. Oh, and ever since she was born, the right side of her head has had longer, thicker hair than the left side. It wasn't as noticeable when she had so much hair, but now that she is more on the bald side, you can totally notice the difference. It's kind of funny. I'm contemplating cutting that too. . . we shall see what happens.

Anyway, I'll post a video of her rolling over tomorrow and I'll include some cute 5 month pictures as well! Until then, I have some projects in the works that I am going to share with you in the next week or so. Think pillows, cake plates, a laundry hamper and some rearranging of frames. It's sure to be good fun! :)

Isn't is crazy how fast they grow? I'm sure you guys are having so much fun watching her learn new things. If you decide to give her a haircut, be careful and don't do what I did :)
