five months

Last Saturday was my Sweet Pea's five month birthday.
She brings us all so much delight;
we are so enjoying watching her grow and develop.

Right now Sweet Pea...

seems to be teething
is not being the good sleeper she was before the teething began
still likes to be swaddled while sleeping
has decided that around 4 a.m. is an excellent time to play
eats apple sauce (she loves it)
and has tried sweet potatoes (still trying to figure that one out)
is having an easier time adjusting to eating from a spoon
than her brothers did
sits in a booster chair with us at dinner time

loves sitting up in her Bumbo chair, observing the world
is pretty much obsessed with her toes
is getting much more finesse and control over her limbs
can pick up light toys with ease
likes to examine her swing and booster seat buckles
is fascinated with rattles
loves tags
can roll from her stomach to her back (tummy time is history)
and from her back to her side
has tried playing the piano with Daddy
listens intently to music
tries to get her hands on any cell phones or iPods she sees

sometimes talks in this funny, gargly voice
has distinctly said "Ma-ma" more than once
as well as "Da-eeee"
and something that sure sounds like Little Man's name
lights up when her brothers come into sight
loves it when Brother hugs her
finds Little Man's antics positively hilarious
is still my sweet snuggler
