5 Months Old

Lily turned 5 months old last week on Thursday (8/14) Time is passing quickly and it's just amazing to see how much she's changed in such a short time. Her little personality is shining through more and more.

On Monday (8/18) she rolled from her back to her belly for the first time. Once she did it, her eyes got huge and she just looked around and then went "whooooo" It was like she was saying "wow...what just happened?" She hasn't done it since but I'm sure it's going to be a routine thing in the near future.

Here's some things about her at the moment:

- Smiles all the time. If anyone smiles at her she will give them a huge big grin.

- Puts everything in her mouth and is drooling non-stop. I feel a little bump on her bottom gum so I think a tooth will be appearing very soon.

- Tries to give you a kiss. She gets so many kisses from all of us she will now try to give one back. She comes at you with her mouth open and gives you a slobbery open mouth kiss on your cheek.

- Uses her feet like hands and will rub her feet together while playing. Kicks her toys on her jungle gym. Would love to suck on her feet but her little chunky thighs get in the way.

- In a very good routine during the day regarding naps.

- Likes to squeal and make very loud sounds. At times it seems like she's upset or fussing but when you come to her she giggles and smiles.

- When everyone is talking she'll make talking noises too. She wants to join the conversation.

- When she's sleepy, she loves to be cuddled and hugs up close to you. (I love this SO much.)

- Immediately after having a dirty diaper will fuss and cry till it gets taken off.

- Loves bath time and kicks and splashes. I think I've got a future swimmer in the house.

- When outside she loves to watch the leaves on the trees blow. She is fascinated by it and just stares and stares.

- Her hair is growing!! The bald spot in the back is getting filled in. On top of her head it's getting so fuzzy. When you're holding her you can see on the sides a few little wisps of hair that's now touching the top of her ears. (Grow baby..grow!! I've got hair accessories waiting.)

- Likes Hayden a lot more. She watches everything he does and tries to kiss him too.

- She's trying very hard to be able to sit up on her own. Can sit up alone for a about 30-45 seconds. She gets upset when she falls over as she's got things to see.

- Like to play patty-cake. Giggles and laughs hysterically.

The hula outfit is the Build-A-Bear outfit for my Hello Kitty. I wanted to see if it fit her and it did. So sorry little Lily...mommy couldn't help herself. You're just so cute!!
