Five Months

What a month we have had little sister! You have taken on a lot of personality and have also earned a few more nicknames including: Aves (you get called this more often than anything else), Avers, boogie and boogs. Not sure where they all came from but it is what it is.


You are growing so fast. You roll around everywhere so the days of laying you on the couch or bed are long gone. You don't really crawl but somehow you move all over the place. I don't think it will be long because you have really been trying, you look more like an inch worm. You'll get it, no rush!

You also recently decided that you don't need as much sleep as you were getting. You have been waking up between 4-5 a.m. almost every night lately. You don't cry. You just grunt and coo and babble.


It's totally cute, don't get me wrong, but I'd prefer all that cuteness after a full nights rest.


We also started feeding you rice cereal. In part because we thought it might help you sleep longer, like at least until 6, but that hasn't helped yet. You really like to eat and you attack the spoon when you see it. And as for teeth, you seem to be working on getting some because you chew and drool on everything you can get your little hands on.


Your little personality hasn't changed much. You are still very laid back. You rarely cry or fuss at all. Everyone seems to comment on your contentedness. You smile a lot and just seem so very happy. Oh and your laugh is beyond adorable. You are very ticklish and really let out the laughs so, sorry, but we tickle you a lot. You seem to enjoy it though.


You're also very fond of your daddy now. You love feeling his beard and short hair. Your little face lights up when you hear his voice and I'm pretty sure you'd let him hold you all day and never fuss.

But, your sister is still your favorite and still gets the most smiles and laughs from you. You guys play together now. Well, she forces tea cups and saucers on you and you put them in your mouth - that counts as playing in my book.


I guess that wraps up this month. We thank God everyday for you and your health and we love you so very much!!!



p.s. Ashley, if you're reading this, I totally took advantage of the awesome lighting at your house for her 5 month pictures. Hope you don't mind!


  1. She is already 5 months?! I remember when you first told me when you were preggo again. Time..please slow down! She is adorbs and presh. ;)

    1. Ugh, I know. Time is flying even faster with her.

  2. So cute and sweet! I hope she starts sleeping a little longer. Maybe it's a phase? One can hope. :)

    1. Aww, thanks. I'm happy to report that she's sleeping much better again!

  3. She is BEAUTIFUL!! & those blue eyes!!

  4. What is funny is I totally didn't notice those were at my house until you said something about it! I was distracted by how cute she is, how chubby her cheeks are looking and how she and Little One are doing the same things right now. Use my house anytime...feel free to mop and leave dinners in the freezer while you are there :)

    1. I'm pretty shocked you didn't notice it was your house, but then again, she is pretty cute and who notices the background anyway :)

      I'm beyond excited to see you guys tomorrow!!! Yay!!


I know it can be a little scary but go on, I'd love to hear from you!
