Millie is 5 months old today. I can hardly believe it. 5 months ago she made me a mama. When I think about how much has changed since them I am overwhelmed. The other day I got a notice on my iPhone that my memory was getting full, so I went back through tons of photos to get rid of some and upload them to my computer. While I was doing this I got to see her grow again in picture form from a tiny peanut to the cute and energetic 5 month old she is today. My heart is so full with love, sometimes I wonder if it will burst. Month 5 has been a good one, but a hard one too. Sleep has been tough and I am pretty sure she is working on a tooth. But each day she learns something new and I love how she is learning to interact with us and with others. It is so amazing to watch her discover something new in her little world. I wouldn’t trade these days for anything, not even a full nights sleep.
Milestones: this month she learned to grab and suck on her toes, roll over from back to front (she has only done this 2x though), sit up for 5 seconds, and reach for and grab specific toys
Loves: her Vitamine D, sitting up, listening music, holding her feet in the air and slamming them down, sucking on her fingers, thumb and toes, being held by mommy and daddy, grabbing daddy’s hair, sitting in her high chair and banging toys on the tray, bath time and ‘wrestling’ with daddy.
Hates: the bottle, when you take a toy from her that she wants to play with (she had a meltdown in the bath when I took the washcloth out of her hands), tummy time, strangers, when we clap and cheer after she does something good (whoops, learned that the hard way) and when daddy sneezes too loudly.
Dear baby girl,
I can’t believe how much you make my heart swell with love. Each day I learn a bit more about you and fall in love with you even more. I am so proud of every thing you learn and love to watch you explore the world around you. You have no idea how much your daddy and I love you.
