Kate is 5 Months Old!

Kate turned five months on March 11.  I took these pictures the next day but haven't been able to post because of laptop problems.

Kate, you are five months old. 

   You are a pretty easy going baby.  Although we've seen a few "fits" this past month.  You are very attached to Momma but have also decided that you like dad alright too.  

Momma has bought cereal for you.  We are just waiting on a day that dad can be around to take pictures of you eating your first solid foods.  I think you are ready for something a little more that just milk.  

You are absolutely not a fan of naps!  You fight sleep with the best of them.  At this point, your sister was taking a couple of 2 hour naps a day.  We are lucky if you sleep 45 minutes to an hour twice a day.  You'd just rather be awake with the rest of the family.  

You are wearing size 2 diapers.  We'll be moving up to size 3 very soon.  You are wearing 12 month clothes.  And some of them are getting to small.  You are growing like a weed!

     This month you've gotten really good at grasping what you want.  You love playing with toys, and bringing them to your month to chew on.  You have also decided that you like sucking your thumb.  We are still swaddling you for sleep so hopefully that won't become a habit.  You will suck on a pacifier to go to sleep but not really during the day.  

     You are waking up once during the night to eat but go back to sleep during eating.  You wake up for the day between 7 and 8.  

   You love your sister and she loves you.  She loves to give you kisses and hugs several times a day.  When you are fussing, I'll tell Kendall to talk to you.  You always stop when she's giving you attention.  

     You are ticklish.  You laugh the hardest when daddy is "getting you".  

    You like the car as long as it is moving.   You are not a fan or redlights or other stops.

   We love you so much.  I can't imagine our family without you!

I promise when I get some of my computer problems resolved, I'll come back and add comparison pictures from earlier months.
