Grace @ 5 months


  • She started out the month switching to size 2 diapers (and I put you in a size 2-3 diaper at night for the extra surface area!).
  • She still wears 3-6 months clothes...although some of her sleepers are getting a little to short for her long body.....and so I put her in 6-9 month sleepers now.
  • She is consistently sleeping from about 7pm until 4-5am...then sleeping until about 6:30 (my kids are up with the sun, I tell ya!)
  • She started being able to push herself up with her arms over the past week. You've really made leaps and bounds! I think it will be soon when you will be able to roll over from your tummy to your back.
  • She is really starting to recognize her momma and daddy....and if she sees me from across the room...she lets you know it by talking and cooing very loudly....even throws in a little threat of crying.
  • Drooling so. much. Those teeth are surely going to pop through any time! I think her teething may be effecting her napping....or lack therof. ;)
  • So happy. Loves everybody. Smiles all the time.
  • Likes the exersaucer.

And these sweet feet....oh my....

  • Loves her sister. It makes my heart melt every time she smiles at me....but even more so when I see her smile at her sister. What a bond they will have! For instance....we visited my Granny yesterday and I looked in the back seat to find this. {wipe tear}
  • You rolled over for the first time from your back to your tummy on June 17, 2010. We were at Aunt Sis's and she laid Grace down on her back in the living room...then left her for about a minute to see what the rest of us were doing in another room. When she returned....Grace was on her belly. Kristin yelled out....she rolled over!! So I ran in there with my camera and took this shot...

________________

Grace Jean-

I don't really know what to say...other than what I always say. I love you so much. I am so blessed to be your mother.

Your personality is coming out more, amd you are still (for the most part) so laid back and easy going. You really only cry when you are hungry or tired.

I can't believe that another month has passed. I knew it would happen, yet still surprises me. I get excited about the milestones you will soon reach....yet become nostalgic for your newborn days (but in a good way). I pray that I will not take these days for granted.....and although some days seem so long.... the years are all too short.

I love you.

Momma
