5 Months

Dear Mommy and Daddy,

Can you believe I’m already 5 months old?  I’m 16 pounds and 27 inches long now.  That means I’m a really tall little girl (>97 percentile!)!!   I get my height from Daddy!  :)  It is amazing what I have learned in my short little life.  It really seems like each day or two I learn something new.  I mean, I really love that stinky, milky-looking stuff you give me in that thing with the nipple attached, but man, this clumpy, grayish stuff you are feeding me on that metal stick is AWESOME!  I think I heard dad refer to it as oatmeal the day you switched me from rice cereal after you decided I wasn’t taking to that very well.  And you don’t think I’m a good listener but I heard you tell daddy that I get REAL food starting very soon …. something called peas and naners or something like that.  I’m sure it will be delicious!  Right now, I still get excited when I see my bottle, and I love to grab it and stick it in my mouth!

Speaking of delicious, everything I can grab and put in my mouth is just that!!  Wow, these things on the ends of my arms work G.R.E.A.T.!  I am a tiny bit shy of having total coordination to grab everything before you can stop me but boy, this is going to get really interesting in the next few weeks. 

Oh and I also heard you telling someone how you got me on a schedule, but seriously, let’s be clear around here … I rule the roost and I can tell you a thing or two about schedules.  I would like to walk you through my day:

8:00 – Wake up

8:30 – Eat some yummy oatmeal

9:00 – Bottle time!

9:30- 10:30 – Go with mommy to the gym!

11:00-1:00 – Naptime!

1:00-5:00 – PLAYTIME, YAY and run errands with Mommy!!

5:00-6:00 – Naptime again!

7:00 – Bathtime!

8:00 – Bedtime!!

6:00 am – Yes, I usually get up and suck down an entire bottle, but I go right back to sleep.  Seriously, people, I sleep 12 hours a night EVERY night… a girl likes a bottle after 10 hours … what more do you want from me??!!  :)

Playtime is fun now because I no longer just have to lay on my back (that’s for babies!!  ;) ) and so I’ve really been working hard on sitting up.  I’m getting pretty strong and will be able to do it on my own soon.  Right now, you guys still help me keep from toppling over.  I can sit up well in my jumper seat and my exersaucer though!  Another thing I love is standing up.  Wow, this is the best trick yet!  I will pretty much stand until you make me sit.  I like the view from up there!   Other than that, I’m just working on controlling you laughing and pushing up on my arms so I can crawl.

I hope the next month is as exciting as the last 5 have been!

P.S.  Did I mention that I L.O.V.E. it when you guys sing to me, but this thing you call “cry it out” really stinks!!  Just sayin’.

Here I am practicing sitting up!
