Crimson: 5 Months & counting

. 13 lbs 9.5oz . 25.5 in .

you heard that right .... she's my lil' runt
25% in weight . 70% in height

. milestones .
almost sitting up on her own
sleeping 11-12 hours at night {praise God!}
better arm control, bringing things to her mouth
scooting/rolling around to get somewhere else
she is such a joy now
it started out rocky, with her crying all the time, and now she is the happiest little thing always shooting everyone a smile
she falls asleep on her own without being held
she'll lay on the floor playing with her toys forever
I love her so munch!
she loves clover, who can always make her smile
she hates naps, but she goes to sleep pretty quickly

and get this...

she actually likes the car!!!
she will ride a whole car ride to Brian's parents without making a peep
and she's awake!
she interacts with my mom through skype, which is neat
and my mom is coming in just a couple days!!!
I can't even tell you how excited this makes me
I am so homesick!
and then we are flying to California for Christmas
whoo hoooooo!
I wish we could get snowed in, but I don't think that's likely
but I know a few friends back home who would be willing to make that happen, with some fake snow maybe ;)

can't wait can't wait can't wait can't wait ...
ok I'll stop now :)

{how come both of my children have the ability to escape the bumbo! }
{she's maneuvering into the escape position}

{doesn't she look JUST like me?}
{that would be sarcasm people}

{Clover is always trying to steal the baby's pacifier, and then she hides and sucks on it as much as she can before we take it away. This is where I found her the last time}

  1. She is just so cute - well actually both of them are! I love the bumbo escape picture, her expression says it all. :)
